The Crowned Federation of Samudera Darussalam is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Iskandar II with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.105 billion Samuderans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandar Raja. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuderan economy, worth a remarkable 1,898 trillion Kupangs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 267,231 Kupangs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, formerly internationally exported goods are now given away for free, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Great Tiger Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samudera Darussalam's national animal is the Great Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Samudera Darussalam is ranked 206,214th in the world and 31st in Melayu Archipelago for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -23.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
