Brief Description of Military Capabilities: The Klatenian military saw a recent reorganization into a professional army after the proclamation of the empire. While it possesses the biggest military force in South-East Asia manpower-wise, the country still lacks behind in matters of modernization and technological equipment. The military serves as the country's backbone, participating in several other roles within and outside governmental roles.

Brief History: Klatenia was officially established in 2006 after the unification of the eight core settlements in Yogyakarta during the post-civil war period. The country would later solidify its control over the totality of Java Island. On 18 April 2012, military general Gandhi Prastowo was exalted Emperor of Klatenia, beginning the era of imperial rule. Proclaiming itself as the destined successor of the dissolved Republic of Indonesia, the country began its Wars for Unification across the Malayan archipelago, expanding the country to its predecessor's territorial borders. The successes of Klatenia's endeavors brought the remnants of the Malaysian states to sue for submission. Subsequently, the newly acquired Malaysian territories were consolidated into the Malayan Union under a personal union with the Empire. While militarily capable, Singapore found itself in economic turmoil in the post-Civil War period, as trade through the archipelago had been plagued by piracy before the rise of the Empire. In an attempt to gain a favorable agreement with the Empire, Singapore offered its submission in exchange for special autonomy and protection. In August 2016, the Empire agreed to the settlement, and Singapore officially received free city status in the Empire.

Brief Description of the Modern-Day: While Klatenia manages to stabilize its territories over the course of time, modern-day Klatenia remains a fragile empire with wide-arrange of diverse subjects across the archipelago. The country is continuously juggling between regional autonomy and centralization in maintaining strict submission and contentment throughout the empire.

Outlook on the World: Klatenia has an adamant stance towards national sovereignty and economic protectionism. Diplomatic relations are limited to the extent of fulfilling national interests and military cooperation in defense of the realm. While the country is open to possibilities of bilateral cooperation with any country and even opportunities as observers in international organizations, formal memberships are seen as an infringement on national sovereignty and are still outside of its interests.

Problems: The wars that have come before have caused a population to shrink in South-East Asia's once highly populated region. The country's vast territory not only needs the necessary manpower to sustain its control over its realm but also to fulfilling its economic necessities. On the other hand, this vast and diverse territory also has heavily burdened the imperial armed forces in enforcing laws and stability throughout the country.

Diplomatic Relations Policy: Klatenia maintains a "Free and Active" diplomatic policy, with intentions of extending its diplomatic arms to any country, especially fellow nationalist and monarchist countries, while remaining free from outside influence and coercion.
