The Islands of Samudera is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Justuva Susanto with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.201 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 2,310 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 281,784 kamasans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, Samudera is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. 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 221,594th in the world and 168th in Refugia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.12 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
