Federal State of Indokistan (Indonesian: Negara Federal Indokistan), also known by its short name of Indokistan, was a political simulation entity known as micronation that located in Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra. Established in 2010, the federal state closes the entire Indokistani statehood movement after its dissolution in July 2016.
Politically, Indokistan was a federal republic based on presidential system and direct democracy with central government based in federal capital of Suwarnakarta. Farhan Abdurrahman was the last president after his victory in 2014 election.
Indokistan was gifted by rich cultural diversity and had a strong influence intermicronationally, especially inside Indonesian micronational community. Indokistan was a member of Association of Indonesian Micronations and Micronational Association of Southeast Asia.
After creation on September 10, Indokistan was named Indostan, actually a name for Indian Peninsula. This name was finally changed to Indokistan prior its establishment on September 16, 2010.
"Indokistan" word was written for the first time in the declaration of independence. Farhan Abdurrahman was the first people to proposed the usage and write the word of "Indokistan", which he also signed the proclamation together with Dicky L. K..
Peoples mistakenly thinks that "Indokistan" originates from the words "Indonesia" and "Pakistan" combined, but it is false, as "Indokistan" name means Land of Indonesians (Tanah Orang Indonesia), where "Indo" refers to the word "Indonesia", and suffix "-stan" or "-kistan" are persian words for "land". The term "Indonesia" refers to the origins of peoples of Indokistan only, with no further references about Indonesian politics and its system in the name.
Often, few Indonesians used term "Indokistan" as an expression of criticisms towards religious-conservative Indonesians intolerate towards minority groups, used by several secular and liberal individuals in social media. It is a satire for the Indonesian government which is seem to have intention to establish a Sharia-based Indonesia. This was criticised by Indokistani government, because Indokistani government is secular and have no aim to create an Islamist Indonesia.
Since its establishment as unitary republic in 2010, Indokistan had experienced events that form Indokistan to its current form. Started with a coup that was resulted on communist government that overthrowned in a revolution, then a war against foreign nation, and an act of treason executed by Indokistani ministries. The first democratic presidential election was held in 13 September 2011.
Entering 2012, Indokistan started to experienced multiple crisis due to inactivity and refusal from its citizens to return to work in government offices. Prior to Emergency Government authority, a confederation with Monovia called Indonovia was attempted, but failed and neglected immediately. The Emergency Government was ruling for nearly 6 months before an offer made by Kingdom of Al Rasyid Darussalam to unified with Indokistan was accepted by the government, starting a short-lived Federal Republic of Indokistan, together with Bobodolands that joined shortly.
National reform in early 2013 spark a new hope for the dying republic, since the failure of the federal republic and strained relations between each provinces threatens the country. The reform, involving rearrangement and reducing government posts, succeeded to avoid more crisis. On the reform, the reunification of Raflesinesia and addition of Kingdom of Wirasena to Indokistan boosting national spirit and enthusiatic mood from every active citizens to work more for the nation.
A referendum was took place in May 2013, turning Indokistan to its current federal form. An election in June 2013 to elect new president was took place and resulting on Tian Abdurrahman victory. His inauguration was took place in his home state of Bobodolands in 5 July, followed by the declaration of the official status of the federal Indokistan.
The dependent territory of Aziziyah became a state of Indokistan after a negosiation in January 2014, which shortly followed by the ratification and the declaration of the official usage of the new national constitution. Separation of Barakstan to create a new independent republic forcing the government to readjust the excecutive position after Tian Abdurrahman left, made Rayhan Haikal a new leader of Indokistan. On July 2014, State leaders of Indokistan met in Suwarnakarta, which became the very first time to be held, remembering that the usual meeting was held through online media.
Farhan Abdurrahman succeeded Rayhan Haikal as president after three out of four states gave their vote of confidence to him on 2014 election. In mid-January 2015, Indokistani capital Suwarnakarta was officially appointed by Association of Indonesian Micronations to become the host for Indonesian Micronational Conference that planned to be take place in June 2015.
After consistently declining inactivity suffered by the Federal State since end-2015 and saw that the inactivity was unrecoverable, Indokistani government decided to shut off the country, ended its 6 years of Indokistani statehood movement. Currently, Suwarnakarta Institute became the only remaining part of of Indokistan after the dissolution. The institute mainly works as an advocate and observer of micronational activities inside Indonesian sector, to run remaining institutions left by Indokistan, and to supervise former landclaims. Because of its tie with Indokistan, the institute immediately received observer status inside Association of Indonesian Micronations after revocation of membership status of the country.
