The Republic of Better Indonesia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Nathanael Octavianus with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.094 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Better Indonesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,092 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 290,338 New Rupiahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Government policy is dictated by a major religion, penny whistles have been rebranded 'tin hornpipes', the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and Nathanael Octavianus's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. 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 90,370th in the world and 739th in 10000 Islands for Most Income Equality, scoring 42.77 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
