The Galactic Federation of Lagspikia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Patrick with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.394 billion Lagspikians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Philadelphia. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lagspikian economy, worth 106 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,321 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', euthanasia is legal, and motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lagspikia's national animal is the Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lagspikia is ranked 125,754th in the world and 178th in The United Federations for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -28.38 on the Hayek Index.
