The Federated Islands of Samudera is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Justuva Susanto with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.978 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. 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 1,006 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 252,905 kamasans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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 162,677th in the world and 266th in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
