The Empire of Noesantara is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Alexander XV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.117 billion Noesantarans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Batavja. The average income tax rate is 58.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Noesantaran economy, worth 134 trillion Aurums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,569 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, pet rocks are sold by the pound, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noesantara's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Noesantara is ranked 47,429th in the world and 1,994th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,365.27 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
