The Republic of Better Indonesia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nathanael Octavianus with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 8.06 billion Indonesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 40.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Better Indonesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,962 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 243,539 Rupiahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, voting is voluntary, and the Better Indonesian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime 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 113,590th in the world and 706th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 5.32 on the Hayek Index.
