Economy

Introduction
Nus Antara's economy has suffered from being so isolated from the rest of the world, but it seems that suprisingly few are within the poverty range. This may be because Nus Antara has enough supplies for the things needed in everyday life for the 6 million residents. Once out of isolation, Nus Antara immediately used the capitalist system to raise their economy. We will see in the future if this method will work for the small nation.

Administrative Divisions

Introduction
The People's Republic of Nus antara is divided into four states (one of which is the capital district) and eight provinces. Each state and province has its own legislature and governor. These states are further divided into regencies and cities. within regencies, there are sub-districts, which are the most important administrative unit for rural civilians. Most provinces do not have regencies, as a majority of them are small islands or island groups.

States
Agung Raya - Ancol
Bantain - Pribumikarta
Hasanuddin - Ujung Pantai
Karimalou Capital State - Karimalou

Provinces

Foreign Relations

Introduction
The People's Republic of Nus Antara had cared little of what happened in the outside world. The people tended to stay to themselves, and viewed foreigners with suspicion. However, Presdent Wveelbar has decided to stop the isolationist policies of the government and teach the people of the importance of trade and international interaction. The Diponegoro Airport has recently turned international, and a few airlines have already reserved gates for flights to and from their nations. Nus Antara has also created an 'International City', where not only a hotel, mall, and school are, but where embassies can be established. The complex is about half an hour from the city center.

Nus Antara has realized how much the rest of the world has industrialized since the isolationist policies of the 1980's. Technology in Nus Antara was similar to 2002 technology for the rest of the world - but they are clearly catching up. The nation hopes to have good relations with all nations despite their political beliefs.

History

(Placeholder, WIP)

Transportation

Introduction
On a national scale, travelling was quite an easy task. The nation was divided into two separate parts (like the American state of Michigan), so travel by air and sea was the most important. All cities by the coast had a space for at least three large passenger ships by Nus Antaran law, to make sure that the traffic was smooth. Because there were also many small islands dotting the sea to the west of the Nus Antaran 'mainlands', ships were vital in order to bring supplies to those areas. A total of 64 seaports that could hold three passenger ships were reported by the government last year.

Air travel is also an important part of transportation in Nus Antara. There are a total of five airports that could be used for international flights with modern day planes. Another 20 could support smaller planes from the recent past. The capital city's airport, Diponegoro International, as well as the second largest city's have opened new terminals for international flights.

Roads are usually smooth and clean in Nus Antara. They tend to stay by the shore, as one goes inland the terrain gets more mountainous - and sparsely populated. The large highways that are present in the two mainlands are toll roads, and travellers must pay a small fee when entering and exiting them. The nation of Cazelia, which is in between the nation's two mainlands, has allowed limited access by road.

Military

I, a loyal soldier of the grand Nus Antaran People's Armed Forces, swear to [depending on religion] that I will do the very best I can in achieving the following goals:

1.To assert the territorial integrity of Nus Antara
2. To defend the country if attacked by a foreign nation.
3. To support the civil community in case of disaster, natural or manmade.
4. To deploy forces in order to achieve peace in other nations.


Introduction
The Military of Nus Antara is quiet average for a nation with a population of 9-10 million. The Nus Antaran military is in a way unique as the Navy was the first of the three branches of the Nus Antaran National Military to be created, back in 1585. The navy was the pride of the nation - it was very powerful for a small nation with little people - and it was technologically advanced for its age too. The navy probably outran most other ships while having as many cannons. The navy even had a type of 'Greek Fire', though it was used rarely. The Army branch split from the navy in 1645, when Nus Antara was forced to fight off a separatist movement inland. They too had technology years ahead of their time. Following much years of peace and little conflict, the Nus Antaran Air Force was created, in the year 1942.

The Nus Antaran Military is conscripted, though up to 25% of the soldiers signed up voluntarily. At the moment the Nus Antaran army is highly in need of changes, as most of the weapons and vehicles are outdated. They have contacted Lyran Arms, a weapons manufacturer in the same region, to help modernize the military. The navy, however, is in wonderful shape.

Culture

Introduction
Nus Antara can be considered one of the most diverse and unique nation in the world. The natives, the Pribumi, make up of about 65% of the population, and even within that ethnic group there are dozens of different individual cultures. To add to that, many Europeans (mainly Dutch and German), Indian, Arab, and Chinese have settled in the nation, making a true 'melting pot'. All of these have contributed in making the Nus Antaran culture so special.

Dress
Ancient Nus Antarans wore little - if anything - in thier daily life. The first tribes were topless at most except for ceremonial purposes, war, and hunting. Green jade and other gems would be sowed onto skirts made of dried leaves and capes made of feathers. During war, warriors would wear tough animal hides - usually from wild boar -on their chest, stomach, arms, thighs and calves. For hunting, men and women would not wear any clothing as it would limit their speed and movement, as well as create sound. they however, painted themselves shades of green and brown for camouflage.

Going a little further into the 1700's, the average Nus Antaran in the big city would wear a white silk shirt and trousers. European fashion was also starting to become trendy, although it never fully picked up among the general population.

Today, most people would be wearing what most in the rest of the world wear. Jeans, T-shirts, and sweatshirts are what the majority of Nus Antara's youth are wearing today.

Music and Dance
The traditional Nus Antaran music is a mix of local, Classical European, as well as Indian music. Orchestras with European instruments such as violins and cellos are mixed with the angklung and other traditional instruments to create Nus Antaran symphonies. Also following European culture in a way, the Nus Antaran rich and elite find opera very popular in the mid 1700's until the late 1800's.

Modern music is dominated by the Indonesian music scene, and to a lesser extent America's and Germany's as well. Most of these songs are in the rock genre, though generally softer than most westerners are used to. Rap and R&B have recently been gaining popularity, though unlike in the US where these types of songs are about glamor and wealth most Nus Antaran rap has a deeper meaning. Many Nus Antaran Rap and R&B are also made to make people laugh, usually sung by comedy groups.

Large parties and celebrations in Nus Antara were - and are - usually accompanied by the [u=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87ZIfpL9nSk]Tari Saman[/u], also called the dance of a thousand hands. This dance takes years of practice and only the best may join the dance groups because if one person makes a mistake the whole group will suffer. These parties usually also have a European feel to it, as the men and women could also dance a waltz or other classical dance with a small orchestra playing a piece of music.

Language
The official languages of Nus Antara are English and Nus Antaran. However, these are only spoken by 75% and 45% of the population, respectively. The lingua franca of the nation has historically been Bahasa, a creole language with roots from Indonesian, Nus Antaran, German, Hindi, Arabic, and many more. It has been mixed so much that many speakers of the languages that Bahasa derived from would find it nearly impossible to understand.

Bahasa now uses the latin alphabet, but with a few minor changes.

- The letter "C" makes an English "ch" sound
- The letter "J" replaces the "Y"
- The letter "Z" replaces the "J"
- The letter "Y" is used to make it's sound, but is rarely used
- The letter "ɲ" is added. It makes the "ny" sound
- The letter "ŋ" is added. It makes the "ng" sound
- The use of "wv" in the beginning of a word is also common. The w, however, is silent.


Sports
The most popular sport in Nus Antara is association football, also called soccer, and the sport has been played ever since its creation. When it was brought to the nation by English traders in the 1890's, Nus Antarans have already been playing a similar sport called Cafieur Satgo. Cafieur Satgo is played on a circular field with another circle drawn out as a goal in the center. Two goalkeepers defend the one goal - one goalkeeper a team with 5 other players per team. The aim of the game is to get the ball inside the circle without using the hands. By the 1840's, the game was so popular that school clubs began playing the game, and to make it easier the goal circle became the goal wall, and to make a goal one had to hit the bamboo wall representing the circle. This game however, failed to keep up with football as football attracted international audiences. There is, however, a Cafieur Satgo premier league as well as a div. one league.

Association football is played by most Nus Antarans. Schools usually have a team and play in city-wide tournaments. There are 16 professional clubs across the nation that make up the Liga ŋalsha Nus Antara (Premier League). Another 24 make up the Liga Palma I Nus Antara. At the end of the season two teams from the Liga ŋalsha are relegated and two from the Liga Palma I go up. The Nus Antaran National Football Team is waiting to make its first international appearence in the regional Dienstad Cup.
