Since Indokistan began to be involved in worldwide micronational acitivity, especially since its start of activity inside MicroWiki community, Indokistan committed into "free, active, and non-intervention" principles to conducting diplomacy with fellow micronations and to contribute the local micronational community and worldwide micronationalism in general.

Indokistan has established diplomatic relations in the form of formal and informal relationships since February 2011, Los Bay Petros was the first nation to recognize Indokistan, by pursuing diplomatic relations with Indokistan. The historical moment occurred on 14 February, and that day has been celebrated as Alliance Day since 2012, and become an annual observance every year. The number of micronations who have opened diplomatic relations with Indokistan has been steadily growing since that time.

Foreign policy

On its foreign relations and its policy, Indokistani government established a principles as basis for its activities and to be followed by citizens. The principles are "active, free, non-interventionist", and became official after the basis was included to the constitution in January 2015.

Active on this principles means that Indokistan shall be active to contribute to development of micronationalism wherever Indokistan active. Free means that Indokistan must be free to do any activities on Indokistan's own power without threats and force from foreign powers. Non-interventionist policy will prevent Indokistan from involved and interfering in any foreign nation internal policies.

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.

LBP has been allowed a special place in Indokistani foreign relations since that time. Indokistan had an embassy and a cultural center in Bayrschtein, and Los Bay Petros also has its embassy in Flastraad.

Indokistan and Los Bay Petros are sometimes considered as sister nations, since several micronationalists have said that Indokistan had a very similar characteristics to Los Bay Petros.

Out of discussions between Los Bay Petros (and Raflesinesia) on 19 June 2012, the nations agreed to establish a union named the "LIR Union". These nations step further on their relationship in 2014, when both governments agreed to commit on a formation of a confederation called Madyaraksa, which was failed after Los Bay Petrosian government suddenly recalled their delegates during talks, and is no longer supported today.

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 of 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.
