The Federated Islands of Samudera is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Justuva Susanto with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.687 billion Samuderans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bhinneka. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuderan economy, worth 583 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 217,087 kamasans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. Crime 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 Communism.

Samudera is ranked 1,057th in the world and 3rd in The Western Isles for Safest, scoring 153.18 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
