Indokistani foreign relations history began in February 2011, when the country commencing activities inside the MicroWiki community, thus opening the country to the worldwide micronational community. Indokistani first diplomatic treaty was signed in 28 February 2012 with Los Bay Petros, and since 2012 the day was celebrated as "Diplomatic relations day".

Indokistani government committed to "free, active, and non-intervention" foreign policy principles in conducting diplomacy with fellow micronations and to contribute in intermicronational organisations and micronational movement in general.

Indokistani foreign relations became increasingly Indonesian-centric in 2014, with the main focus was on the Association of Indonesian Micronations and Indonesian sector. Indokistan ceased its diplomacy in 5 July 2016 after the authority cut all diplomatic relations and withdraw from all micronational organisations.

History

Indokistani foreign relations began in February 2011, when Indokistani founders were introduced to the MicroWiki community. At the insistence of Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Nabil Ihsan, President Farhan Abdurrahman agreed to open the country and introduce Indokistan to the community. Indokistan and Los Bay Petros signed diplomatic treaty in 28 February 2011, and since 2012 was celebrated as "Diplomatic relations day".

Indokistan intially maintained a balanced foreign relations between all sectors and micronations throughout the world, but it was drifting away in 2013 until 2014, when Indokistani foreign policy became increasingly Indonesian and Southeast Asian-centrist, with micronations located outside the sector are no longer the focus of Indokistani foreign policy. Indokistani government no longer requesting foreign micronations outside the sector to establish foreign relations, and interactions with them dramatically decreased. Because of this, Indokistan has successfully gained a status of regional power, but failed to gain larger influence outside the sector.

Indokistan increasingly resigned from the community in early 2016, maintaining only contact with Association of Indonesian Micronations and its member states, despite of numerous diplomatic treaties signed with other micronations outside the sector. The issue was made complicated by indecisiveness among the National Forum members on how to deal with the issue, causing further deadlock as the relations were left abandoned. Furthermore, due to inactivity, Micras removed Indokistani region of Solovyovagrad from the map in February 2016.

Indokistani foreign policy was shaped by Nabil Ihsan as Foreign Minister (2010-2012) and the main Indokistani Ambassador to the community

Indokistan and Los Bay Petros signed a mutual recognition treaty in 28 February 2011, a day that would be celebrated by Indokistan as "Diplomatic relations day" since 2012. Indokistan had bestowed the status of most-favoured nation to Los Bay Petros. Indokistan Cultural Centre opened in Bayrschtein was one evidence of friendly relations between both countries. Indokistan had an embassy and in Bayrschtein, and Los Bay Petros also had its embassy in Flastraad.

Due to its similar characteristics, Indokistan and Los Bay Petros were considered as sister nation, a term later properly exploited by both countries to cooperate more diplomatically. LIR Union consisted of both countries (and Raflesinesia) was founded in 19 June 2012, and its charter was ratified in the only intermicronational conference in Indonesian sector took place in August 2012. The country step further on their relationship when both countries joint unification commission proposed a country called Madyaraksa in August 2014, only to be withdrawn after Los Bay Petrosian delegates sudden recall from the commission.

Raflesinesia

Relations with Raflesinesia began when Raflesinesian predecessor, Little Britain, was established in February, 2012. A conflict was occured when it was find out that their government had a false claim that they once related to Indokistan and seceded, ended in a protest letter sent to the Little Britain government. Little Britain government later publicly apologizes on the problem. This incident in fact starting relations and cooperations between both countries, furthermore after Prime Minister Rayhan Haikal officially visit Indokistan.

After that incident, Indokistan and Raflesinesia had established warm and stable relations, agreeing to a diplomatic relation pact in July 2012, and sharing borders with the Indokistani province of Slobodan. Finally, from discussions between Los Bay Petros and Raflesinesia on 19 June 2012, the parties agreed to establish a union named the LIR Union.

Raflesinesia officially become part of Indokistan after their proposal on the reunification with Indokistan was accepted, and the reunification act was signed by both government on February 2013, made Raflesinesia an Indokistani territories under the new name, Cussex. Ironically, media called this merger as "unification" - referring to Raflesinesian claims that they once part of Indokistan - despite this is the first and only time when Raflesinesia joined Indokistan.

Monovia

Relations with Monovia were started after Harry Fitzpatrick sent a letter to Nabil Ihsan, asking for an audience with him on Skype. On Skype, he was expressing his idea to establishing a new nation with Indokistan, later, Indonovia was established as a confederation. Another nation, Raflesinesia also joined the confederation, with Lurk Federation and Burkland lend their territory to Indonovia.

Indonovian project later cancelled after Monovia joins Renasia as a special autonomous region, which causes Indokistani government to lose their will to continuing Indonovia. Despite of the failure, this proposal was written as the first from several attempts took by Indokistani government to merge the country with other micronations to establish a greater country.

Arkapore

Arkapore and its predecessor has been in relation with Indokistan since 2011, they inconsistently joined and left Indokistan as province, republic, then a state. First contact with Arkapore was started from its predecessor, Bobodolands Barakstan in the end of 2011.

Indokistan and Bobodolands Barakstan started to bound in diplomatic relations in 2011, before decided to join Indokistan, but left shortly. Bobodolands Barakstan then rejoin Indokistan to be one of its republics in the Federal Republic of Indokistan, and decided to stay in Indokistan despite of Al Rasyid Darussalam secession in end of 2012, which makes people convinced on his loyalty to Indokistan, after for several times condemned as a capricious man.

Barakstan made a significant contribution in Indokistan, and its leader Tian Abdurrahman was appointed president in June 2013 after an election. Barakstan then decided to left Indokistan after ideological differences, and to change their name to Arkapore in January 2014.

First recognition of Indokistan to Arkapore was started in rough way, because of an action of blockade that was done by Arkaporean government in January 2014, which was revealed as a protest against Indokistani influence there. Indokistan and Barakstan then opened diplomatic relations in February 2014 after restoration on relations and the conflict has been resolved. Currently, both countries engaged in a stable and friendly relations, despite of its perilous past.
