The Republic of Better Indonesia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Nathanael Octavianus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.29 billion Indonesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Better Indonesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,181 trillion New Rupiahs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 292,620 New Rupiahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The only things written in the stars are arrest warrants for astrologers, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. 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 418th in the world and 8th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 44.5 bananas ingested per day.
