After a long process of decision, he formed a micronation which he called "Excellent", because he wanted to bring excellent way to lead a country. But he kept it, because he did not want to be called a secessionist, so he launched it at 2012, after he found some micronationalist who is exactly shared same year of birth and hobbies.

Government and politics
The United Democratic Republic of Excellent has a governmental system of unitary, single-party semi republic, whose head of state, the President, is elected for 10-year term. The President can prolong the term in the third term, extending it into life term. The presidential succession of Excellent is similar like those of kingdom, where the head of state is succeeded by the Heir to The Throne, either presumptive or hereditary heir. In Excellent this term is changed to "Heir to The Sword of Excellent". The reason of this creation of position of The Heir to The Sword of Excellent is the relations between the Excellent Republic and the "historical" Kingdom of Jokrtania, who shared same entities and in "fact", Excellent presidents are descended from the Royal Family of Excellent.
Legislative power is exercised by Excellent National Assembly, which is composed from appointed members of Excellent Party, appointed members of Excellent National Armed Forces and appointed members from professional organizations like Teacher's Union, Doctor's Union, Worker's Union, etc.
Political system in this country is concentrated on a single party, Excellent Party, who has extraordinary power to serve as the people's voice. Excellent Party has been accused to be corrupt, inefficient, and lavish, however after the leadership of Anthony Thomas, the party is reforming itself from inside, particularly because of young succession that seems to take over the control of the Party.
The United Democratic Republic of Excellent followed the "free and active policy according to the national ideology" as the sole basis in its foreign relations. Recently, Excellent had diplomatic relations with Federal State of Indokistan, Republic of Omahkulon and Republic of Kaleido.
Military, Law and Order
Task to secure the country is administered by Excellent National Armed Forces, who has four branches in its division. Those branch is Excellent National Army, Excellent National Navy, Excellent National Air Force, and Excellent National Gendarmerie. The commander is the Heir to The Sword of Excellent by practice, but there was an extraordinary case when the second President, who at that time was the Heir, chooses to be academic. Automatically, the commander position was vacant, and so the President himself who exercised the power. Excellent National Armed Forces had drawn diverse views from the people, as the Central Government said it. Nowadays, the portrayals are mostly positive, because the incumbent President is an active soldier and often quoted as saying that "the military years is the best years of my life."
Excellent recognizes two languages as the official languages, it is English and Bahasa Indonesia. The Excellent language is a language for official purpose in Kingdom of Jokrtania, but it is became extinct as English came to be the official language after British Invasion of 1920. Efforts to resurrect this language have been made by the Central Government.
