Previously, he was an Indokistani citizen serving as Governor for his home state Barakstan since 2012 until 2014, and as Indokistani fifth president from July 2013 until January 2014.

He is one of the most important micronational leaders inside Indonesian micronational community, successfully brings Arkapore to be one of the most advanced and stable micronation inside the sector.

Early life

Tian was born in Bandung, Indonesia as Fattah, but shortly after renamed as Tian, which means "sky" in Mandarin Chinese. His date of birth was on the same day as the founding day of Indonesian national ideology Pancasila, which later he claimed is the main cause on his strong adherence of Indonesian nationalism, even in his micronational career that promotes independence from macronational politics.

Micronational career

Early career

After establishing Bobodolands Barakstan in 2011, Tian immediately had contact with Indonesian micronational community, which also immediately welcomed Tian and recognizes his micronation. Shortly after establishing Bobodolands, Tian decided to merge his micronation to Indokistan in May 2011, with ministerial position granted to him in September 2011, yet shortly Tian decided to left Indokistan.

Inside Indokistan

He known to be inconsistently entered and left Indokistan, but his longest stay there brings changes to the country before his departure. Inside Indokistan, he runs on various positions in central government beside of his Barakstani governor position. He was the fifth president of Indokistan in 2013 until January 2014.

He was first entered Indokistan in 2011 but shortly left. Later, he reentered Indokistan in 2012, together with Jendri Mamahit to form Federal Republic of Indokistan. In the Federal Republic, he was chosen as Head of Parliament as member of the Federal Council. On that period, he was a consistent opponent of a federal Indokistan, and calls for restoration for unitary Indokistan. Failure on the federation and establishment of Third Republic made him happy, as his hope was fulfilled. He also successfully maintained his position as head of parliament, but it was short because of the departure of Jendri and collapse of the republic.

After the shock of Jendri's departure, he was successfully convincing Indokistani citizens of his loyalty by not following Jendri's action to secede, and he was praised for his consistency. During the Provisional government period, he remains a supporter for the reform. While other politicians promote a federal Indokistan during the time of 2013 referendum, he consistently supporting an unitary country, which he then agreed to establish a third option - devolution - as an alternative of unitary state and a federation. He was elected president in June 2013 after his victory in election, and sworn-in as president on July 2013.


In January 2014, President Tian suddenly declared his resignation as Indokistani president, and declared his region as an independent micronation. His decision was overwhelmingly condemned by the central government, yet because of the far distance between the capital Suwarnakarta and Barakstan the central government can do nothing, which helps Tian's secession. Arkapore and Indokistani heated relations was later made worse by his decision to stage a blockade against Indokistani embassy, which ended peacefully, yet hampering Arkaporean attempts on its struggle of recognition.

Intermicronational career

Tian is one of the most important figure inside Indonesian sector, because of his experience and his status as one of the pioneer inside the sector, and his staunchly nationalist stance brings a significant influence inside the community.
