The Galactic Federation of Lagspikia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Patrick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.288 billion Lagspikians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Philadelphia. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lagspikian economy, worth 246 trillion Peaks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,032 Peaks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Lagspikia, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. 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 5,359th in the world and 5th in The United Federations for Safest, scoring 127.16 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
