The Republic of Better Indonesia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Nathanael Octavianus with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.021 billion Indonesians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Better Indonesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,614 trillion Rupiahs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 260,888 Rupiahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The election for Nathanael Octavianus's office's janitor is heating up, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Better Indonesia's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Better Indonesia is ranked 3,029th in the world and 48th in 10000 Islands for Highest Average Incomes, with 260,888.98 Standard Monetary Units.
