The Republic of Better Indonesia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Nathanael Octavianus with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.61 billion Indonesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jakarta. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Better Indonesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,309 trillion New Rupiahs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 294,987 New Rupiahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, third world countries are rich in "I Love New Jakarta" t-shirts, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and careless Maxémon Trainers have been the cause of numerous search and rescue operations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Better Indonesia's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Better Indonesia is ranked 450th in the world and 16th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 46,204.53 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
