To address Omahkulon inactivity in 2014, Tommy allowed his country to unify with Arkapore and Nauli to form Drastharaya in 20 October 2014. After the failure of Drastharaya, Tommy decided to declare dissolution of Omahkulon on August 2015. Tommy later declared the founding of Harjakarta to replace Omahkulon in 27 August 2015.
"Omahkulon" name originates from the Javanese language and was composed of two words, "omah" which means "house" and "kulon" which means "east". The name thus bears the meaning "easternmost house". The "east" sense arose from the history that the land was once the easternmost part of the Demak Sultanate, a historical kingdom founded on the region until the 14th century.
Omahkulon history was centred in the Omahkulon Palace, a personal heritage of Tommy's family and the cradle of the ancient Omahkulon monarchy. Despite the history of monarchy, Tommy instead declared the founding of the Republic of Omahkulon in 2011. In respect of family heritage among other reasons, Tommy later declared the restoration of the monarchy and adoption of federalism on 11 March 2014.
To address Omahkulon inactivity, Tommy allowed the unification of the country to Drastharaya, together with Arkapore and Nauli in 20 October 2014. Entire Omahkulon institutions were preserved as Drastharaya founding charter guaranteed states autonomy under the banner of federalism. Omahkulon declared restoration of independence in 24 March 2015, shortly after the collapse of Drastharaya due to rivalry among constituent states.
Tommy declared Omahkulon extinction in 27 August 2015, at the same time when he declared the founding of Harjakarta to replace Omahkulon. Apart from symbol changes and institutional adjustments, Tommy remain as the leader of Harjakarta and preserved the title of Prince.
With Tommy N. as the Great Prince, Omahkulon was technically a Principality. The prince led the country as the head of state and head of government, responsible on national defence and foreign affairs as convention. Omahkulon was also an absolute monarchy, since the Prince had an absolute prerogative to enact laws, thus removing the necessity to establish a national parliament.
The Federal Prince delegated his rule by appointing Princes to govern Omahkulon constituent states. The State Princes were able to create state laws as long as it did not contradict the federal law, beside obliged to manage state budget and declared state symbols. The State Princes were obliged to submit annual accountability report to the Great Prince on a ceremony took place on the federal capital, Narisworo City.
Omahkulon was a member state of the Association of Indonesian Micronations (AIM) and the Micronational Association of Southeast Asia. Omahkulon also had a very close relations with Indonesian micronations, especially Arkapore and Excellent, besise AIM fellow member states.
Omahkulon had 2 states and 3 territories. The states were led by State Prince appointed by the Great Prince. The state had complete autonomy to set their own rules with several limitations set by the federal authority. The state could not veto federal laws and modify landclaims, and should lend parts of their territories to form the national capital. Territories were under complete control of the Great Prince.
