Regional Happenings


Melayu Archipelago Regional Message Board

The night has coming to Daulapura. The meeting will be continue tomorrow after the announcement made by Eraman Bendahara. It is a good result so far. Patih Agung Kusumajaya try to get some rest although it won't be much time for him as he will meet President Makarin later on. He has been in a fuse from the day before. He is eager to do a private meeting for them two. Something so important must be on his hand. But what?

Kusumajaya arrived in the hotel where the meeting will be held. Makarin seems to avoid to use the palace but they are lucky to get the place to meet privately. After Kusumajaya ask to the receptionist, he is escorted to the said room. Located in the fifth floor, it's not a big meeting room. In fact, it looks more like a study room but still with a complete setting for a small meeting up to 4 people. Makarin is already waiting for him there. They are greets each other casually like a long lost friend.

'So tell me, what is this that you want to talk to me so eagerly from yesterday?' ask Kusumajaya as he body touch the chair.
'Hahaha. You're getting very curious,' say Makarin with a fresh laugh.
'Well, you have Ben bugging me from the dinner the other night to meet in private,' remind Kusumajaya.
Makarin still have his laugh before he try to composure himself. 'Of course it is country related. Trade to be precise,' he say cautiously.
'Another trade agreement?' Kusumajaya ask.
Makarin exhale deeply as if he is afraid to say what he wants. 'Honestly, I would like you to invest in my country's energy industry. Build a refinery so we can produce our petrol at home,' explain Makarin.

Kusumajaya lean back. It is true that Pemecutan have provide Acastanha their petrol. But changing that trade to crude oil trade will decrease the income.

'I understand that it is economically impossible because you will be the one who gets the disadvantage here. What I'm thinking is you establish the refinery in our country and sell directly the finished product without the bother of shipping cost. The refinery will be still yours,' explain Makarin.

Kusumajaya get interested. But.... 'What's the catch?'
'Build the refinery somewhere in Arra. Maybe Sagamarayn or Radchai. And let my people works there,' Makarin propose.
Kusumajaya think for a few seconds. He is agree about letting Acastanhada people to work in the plan refinery. It will be in their soil after all. But build it in Sagamarayn or Radchai?

'Why not build it in Porto Espinhosa instead?' ask Kusumajaya.
'Decentralize,' Makarin answer. 'As of now many industry have been flocking the Palidas region. I want to build up Arra region which is still rely on raw material production and trade,' he added.
'Hhmm. I get your point. But Sagamarayn and Radchai is not feasible,' reveal Kusumajaya.
Makarin look at him in a questionable face. 'Both cities are not facing an open sea. That is their limitation. In a case of oil spill, the worst scenario, the area will be contaminated easily,' explain Kusumajaya.
'Isn't it better that way? It is easier to contain the oil spill in an enclosed area. Besides the cities are closer to Pemecutan than any other city in Acastanha,' Makarin argue.
Kusumajaya sigh heavily.

'You know what? Let's stop the meeting here,' say Kusumajaya. Something which shock Makarin. 'We conduct another meeting with more reliable people who is more understand about this issue. Maybe I can get MG Oil president too so we can talk about this thoroughly,' he added.
'Ah yes. That would be a great idea,' say Makarin in a relieve. A split second before, he thought Kusumajaya reject his proposal.
'In fact, I invites some of the leaders from Cendana Islands for some meeting. You can join up if you want,' invite Kusumajaya.
'Oh really? But what's the meeting is about?' ask Makarin curiously.
'Trade and the region's stability,' answer Kusumajaya casually.
'That would be great,' say Makarin in a happy tone.
'Great. I'll inform you the time later on,' say Kusumajaya. He give a silent smile for his success to invite Makarin to the meeting.



We have received several suggestions to be the new name for the region. What do you think should be the new name for the region to replace Melayu Archipelago? Nations on the Melayu Archipelago map or nations that have participated in any of the previous CMFA Melayu Archipelago Cup are eligible to vote (1 user can only vote once) on the proposal.

The four options for the vote are:
a) Mandalanusa (the circle of islands)
b) Madyanusa (the middle islands)
c) Mahameru (the great mountain)
d) re-open nominations

Cast your vote via the regional poll by Sunday, 5th June 2022 before 9:17 am GMT 8+ (1:17 am UTC)


The vote on the new name for the region has now ended. The results are:

a) Mandalanusa (5 votes)
b) Madyanusa (0 votes)
c) Mahameru (1 vote)
d) re-open nominations (0 votes)

Therefore, the new name for the region will be Mandalanusa. We will begin our migration to Mandalanusa at the end of the 91st World Cup which is on the 20th of June 2022.


President Paulus Etamba was relieved after the result of the vote on the 3 proposals during the AMAN Leaders' Meeting was announced. It was exactly what the president wanted. He was a lot happier when he checked his mobile phone after the meeting as he received hundreds of congratulatory messages.

Back home in Sendhang where the proceeding of the AMAN Leaders' Meeting was aired live by several media outlets and followed by the people across the nation, the reaction was instant. Again, the reaction was mixed but it went exactly like how the president planned.

"We cannot agree to this," said the president during the meeting in a viral short video clip on social media.

The majority of Sendhangite were happy to see their president's firmness in rejecting the Bendahara of Eraman's proposal on an independence referendum for Putrasia during the meeting. The popularity of the president went up to the roof.

It was however a different story in Putrasia. A different clip was widely shared there, a clip of Tun Rendra Usin's speech during the meeting.

"The fate of the Putrasians shall be determined by the Putrasians," said the Bendahara of Eraman in the clip.

The Putrasians agreed with the Bendahara of Eraman. Suddenly, the guy that they hated so much not so long ago for proposing to change the name of the region became their hero in an instant. The call for a referendum in the poorest state in Sendhang grew stronger after that speech by Tun Rendra Usin.


"That went well," said Tun Rendra Usin, the Bendahara of Eraman.

It was the evening after the AMAN Leaders' Meeting. He was accompanied by President Paulus Etamba, the President of Sendhang in a cigar room at the underground level of the Daulapura Palace. Two glasses and a whiskey bottle were on the table in front of them. Both men had an imported cigar between their fingers. There was no one else in the room except the two.

"Yes, that was a huge relieved," replied President Paulus Etamba.

President Paulus Etamba was of course very happy with the outcome of the meeting. He got what he needed from the meeting. He managed to raise nationalism in his country. And most importantly, get the support of 3 of the 4 Sendhangite states, which should be enough to get him re-elected as the president again for another term. The problem in Putrasia can be settled on another day.

"A good start. But we still have a lot to do. This is just the beginning, just a small piece in the grand plan," said Tun Rendra Usin.

Yes, while the other delegations thought that they were at the end of the meeting, for Tun Rendra Usin and President Paulus Etamba, the meeting was only the beginning of a more elaborate plan. The two leaders who led their respective countries' nationalist parties are keen to play more geopolitics. The fact that Pemecutan's geopolitical influence in the region is growing does not sit well with them.

"One at a time. We finish the meeting tomorrow. Then we get an update from Acastanha," replied President Paulus Etamba.

And on the next day, they did just that. The meeting went well without drama or any further shocking announcements. The three hours meeting was all about choosing a new name for the region. Three names, Mandalanusa which means the circle of islands, Madyanusa which means the middle island, and Mahameru which means the great mountain were nominated by the delegations during the meeting. And in the end, after a vote, a new name was successfully chosen to be the new name for the region which is Mandalanusa.

Sorry if this is a stupid question...

As per the vote on the 5th June 2022, the new name for the region from now on will be Mandalanusa. Therefore, a new region named Mandalanusa has been created and is now open for everyone to join.

As for the Melayu Archipelago region, it will be locked, preserved, and kept for historical purposes.

Everyone is welcomed.
