The Santa is coming to the towns of Samudera is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Justuva Susanto with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.561 billion Samuderans 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry 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 Bhinneka. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuderan economy, worth 869 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 244,295 kamasans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 Samuderan Syncretism.

Samudera is ranked 50,418th in the world and 98th in The Western Isles for Largest Populations, with 3.56 billion Capita.
