The Islands of Samudera is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Justuva Susanto with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.737 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bhinneka. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuderan economy, worth a remarkable 2,465 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 282,226 kamasans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Samuderan flag qualifies you for citizenship, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Samuderan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, the comic book series 'President Justuva Susanto and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and GP clinics are inundated by patients requesting prescriptions for alcohol. 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 Arusic.

Samudera is ranked 244,340th in the world and 205th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring -854.78 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
