The Crowned Federation of Samudera Darussalam is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Iskandar II with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.324 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandar Raja. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuderan economy, worth a remarkable 2,242 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 269,391 Kupangs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

King Iskandar II is famed for giving great back rubs, the government is flooded with compensation requests, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Samudera Darussalam is ranked 43,188th in the world and 14th in Melayu Archipelago for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,074.58 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
