State of Barakstan Darussalam (Negara Bagian Barakstan Darussalam), or shortly known as Dacoenlands, was a state in Indokistan that was established in 26 September 2012, initially as a constituent part of the Federal Republic of Indokistan. The state was located in Indonesian city of Bandung, and was the base of the former micronation of Bobodolands Barakstan.
The state was known with its strong Sundanese cultural influence and was the strongest base of Indonesian nationalists. Its leader, Tian Abdurrahman was known for supporting Indonesianisation inside Indokistan, which he previously done in his home state. Barakstan had an agricultural economy, with rice and poultry as the most important commodities.
Barakstan was dissolved in 5 January 2014, as Tian Abdurrahman declared secession of the state from Indokistan. The former Barakstan region became the base of the independent State of Barakstan, later Arkapore.
Barakstan was established as an independent Bobodolands Barakstan that merged with Indokistan (and Al Rasyid Darussalam) to form the Federal Republic of Indokistan in September 2012. The Federal Republic later collapsed in October 2012 and was succeeded by the Third Republic - Barakstani government played important part on bringing the Federal Republic into its collapse.
Barakstan then changes name into Dacoenlands in early 2013. At the same year, Dacoenlands successfully maintain significant development in its economy, surpassing other administrative divisions. In February 2013, Dacoenlands had its region divided, with some cities separated to form new province of Southern Indokistan led by Susi Sopiani. Dacoenlands name was replaced by Barakstan again in December 2012, after several citizens opposed the usage of Dacoen name as the state name.
Barakstani government unexpectedly declares secession from Indokistan in 5 January 2014, shortly after addition of Aziziyah as Indokistani states. As a sign of goodwill, Barakstan then gives one of its landclaims to Indokistan. Seceding Barakstan later became the base for independent State of Barakstan, later Arkapore.
