The Crowned Republic of Samudera Darussalam is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Iskandar II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.966 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandar Raja. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuderan economy, worth a remarkable 1,126 trillion Samuderan Rupiahs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 226,823 Samuderan Rupiahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. 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 1,115th in the world and 1st in Melayu Archipelago for Healthiest Citizens, with 30.59 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
