The Crowned Republic of Samudera Darussalam is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Iskandar II with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.631 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, although Welfare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandar Raja. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuderan economy, worth a remarkable 1,011 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 218,422 Samuderan Rupiahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. 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 169,945th in the world and 21st in Tanah Melayu for Fattest Citizens, with 2.43 Obesity Rate.
