"Alonia" name derives from English word "Alone", refers to Alonia founded as a one-man nation. "Berdikari", a name affixed later, is an acronym of "Berdiri di atas kaki sendiri" (Standing on own feet), which refers to spirit of independence, self-sufficience, and freedom, historically used by Indonesian founder Sukarno on many of his speeches and rhetorics in 1950s until 1960s.
Alonia was founded as an independent Republic of Alonia in 6 August 2014 by Muhammad Amir Syarifuddin as leader. Early days of Alonia was hindered due to Amir lack of experience on micronational government. Arkaporean leader Tian Abdurrahman later initiate a dialogue with Alonia to provide assistance to the new country, which was immediately accepted by Amir, which allowed Alonia to be administer by Arkapore as a dependent territory temporarily. Tian later promised Amir to allow an independence referendum to took place 3 months after Alonian dependent territory status expired.
A referendum on Alonian independence was took place in 3 October 2014, with the results overwhelmingly supported independence from Arkapore. Despite initial resistance from Tian to recognise the results, he later relented and allow Alonia to be independent in 25 October 2014, the initial promised date of the referendum.
