The United Socialist States of The Nusanatara Isles is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 558 million Nusantarans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Malay economy, worth 8.86 trillion Rupiahs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,886 Rupiahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nusanatara Isles's national animal is the Komodo Dragon.

The Nusanatara Isles is ranked 165,001st in the world and 12th in The Empire of Nova Roma for Largest Populations, with 558 million capita.
