Barakstan were founded by Tian Abdurrahman, that also led the country since its establishment. A semi-presidential republic, Tian was supported by a council of ministers in performing his executive tasks. Barakstani Parliament last election was occurred in 22 April 2012.
After inconsistently unified and separated with Indokistan, Barakstani final union with Indokistan was occurred in 16 September 2012, effectively turned the country as Indokistani territory.
Barakstan originated from Arabic term "baraka" means "blessing", and affixed with -stan, of Turkic origin that denotes land. Tian personally named the country as such due to his confidence that his country would bring blessing for its inhabitants.
Barakstan was known in several names before its final name. Names used prior to "Barakstan" were Bobodolands, Dacoen, Dacoen Bobodolands, Dacoen Barakstan, Dacoen Pacific 1922, and Dacoenlands. Each of those names had its own etymological origins. Those names stem from two main terms, "Bobodolands" and "Dacoen".
Bobodolands originated from the name of Bandung subdistrict of Bobodolan where Barakstan were located. The name is of Sundanese origin, yet with no definite meaning. "Bobodolands" name were created by affixation with the western suffix -land, that denotes a defined place or territory.
Dacoen (/datʃun/) was the name of ancestor of Tian Abdurrahman. Dacoen was an influential figure in the future Barakstani territory, he was revered by his neighbours and community. After his passing, his village was renamed by his own name, as an honour from his community. In mid-2012, family objection to name his country as Dacoen forced Tian to rename the country, and afterwards the name Barakstan was finalised as the new country name.
The country was founded by Tian Abdurrahman as the Democratic Republic of Tian Abdurrahman, later reformed as Tian Abdurrahman Republic in 7 March 2011. Union of several minor micronations, including neighbouring Western Republic, to Tian Abdurrahman Republic triggered a reform, resulted on the formation of the Bobodolands Federation on 2 March 2012. Territory of the former Tian Abdurrahman Republic was decided to became the national capital, Tian Generations Place.
Assyaid Darussalam, a neighbouring micronation located west to Bobodolands, unified with the country in 17 March 2012. Bobodolands Federation later expanded its territory by claiming regions inhabited by Dacoenese ethnic groups in Bandung sub-district of Rancaekek on 1 April 2012. The country also accepted new members and claimed new territories outside Indonesia, effectively turned the country as a transcontinental micronation.
High expectation from new citizens was met with disappointment after they perceived Bobodolands development turned stagnant. A referendum took place on 17 April 2012 to decide on the future of the country saw union with Indokistan as the most probable solution. After unification discussion with Indokistan broke down, a second referendum took place on 22 April 2012 saw citizens confidence in Bobodolands returned, as the result shown voters supported major reforms instead. After the reform, the country were renamed to Barakstan.
Despite the progress on the reform, Tian unexpectedly declare his decision to reunify with Indokistan on 21 May 2012, and was immediately accepted by Indokistani authority. After Barakstan accession to Indokistan, the region was further reorganised, as initial 7 Barakstani provinces was reduced until 2 provinces remaining, and Barakstan was declared as autonomous province of Indokistan.
Barakstan declared separation from Indokistan and restoration of independence in July 2012, as Tian became increasingly disillusioned by the Indokistani authority. His decision to depart from Indokistan was one of the direct cause of the establishment of the Emergency Government of Indokistan in August 2012. As a gesture of support, Tian later declared Barakstan reunification to Indokistan in 16 September 2012, and together with Al Rasyid Darussalam formed the Federal Republic of Indokistan.
