LeaderEmperor Alexander XV


The Empire of Noesantara is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Alexander XV with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.135 billion Noesantarans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Batavja. The average income tax rate is 52.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Noesantaran economy, worth 136 trillion Aurums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,567 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noesantara's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Noesantara is ranked 188,309th in the world and 8,248th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.95 Crimes Per Hour.
