The Islands of Samudera is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Presidnt Justuva Susanto with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.242 billion Samudrans 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bhinnka. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Samudran economy, worth a remarkable 1,441 trillion kamasans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 275,071 kamasans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samudera's national animal is the dwarf kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Samudran Syncrtism.

Samudera is ranked 87,270th in the world and 99th in The Western Isles for Highest Drug Use, scoring 59 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
