The Empire of Noesantara is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Alexander XV with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.086 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Batavja. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noesantaran economy, worth 132 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,881 Aurums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, and the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities. 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 50,795th in the world and 2,435th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 56.38 Effective Tax Rate.
