Indokistan-Nameless Confrontation (Indonesian: Konfrontasi Indokistan-Nameless) refer to a conflict occurred in August 2011, and stemmed from Indokistani government opposition on Nameless, a micronation neighbouring Indokistan. The conflict does not involves any physical invasion on both sides (in contrast with the violent Indokistan-Ntolian War) as both countries only exchanges minor threats and intimidation.

The confrontation was triggered when Nameless declared their establishment in April 2011, that resulting in defection of four Indokistani ministers from the country to join Nameless. Despite of wave of anger against Nameless, it was later subsides because of Nameless government goodwill on protecting Indokistani citizens during war against Ntolia. Both countries later signed a friendship pact and committed on a friendly relationship. In August 2011, Indokistani government declares that the country was no longer bound on the pact and was pursuing confrontational policy against Nameless, after realisation that the country receives no benefit at all from Nameless.

Indokistani government was divided on its confrontational policy against Nameless. Prime Minister Nabil Ihsan and his allies were pro-confrontation and supportive for an invasion against Nameless, yet he was prevented by President Farhan Abdurrahman that had opposing view, preferring peace with Nameless. Nabil's side eventually lost support among Indokistani public, and was forced to end its confrontational policy, with a peace treaty was signed in August 2011.

Background

Nameless, a matriarchical micronation, was founded in April 2011 and led by Wava C as Queen Regnant. Establishment of Nameless quickly inspire many women to join the country, thus threatening gender balance in the region. Because Nameless was established in the brink of Indokistan-Ntolian War, the country was similarly perceived as threat on Indokistan, and was seen in suspicion. In 14 April, four Indokistani ministers abandoned their post and defect to Nameless, which causes anger among Indokistani public.

Despite on negative perception among Indokistani public, Nameless government was supportive on Indokistan effort in the war. Nameless later showing their goodwill to Indokistan, by allowing their territory to be used for refuge of Indokistani citizens and essential archives, including the State Book. Nameless actions during the war successfully won hearts of citizens, and calls for a diplomatic relations with Nameless was supported.

In 9 May 2011, just before the end of Indokistan-Ntolian War, Indokistan and Nameless signed a diplomatic treaty, which was signed by Farhan Abdurrahman and Wava C, and sealing friendship relations between both countries. The treaty dictates that both countries should support each other on its development, including to provide military and financial support.

Conflict

A declaration of war against Nameless was made by Nabil Ihsan and published on 10 August, rendering the diplomatic treaty between both countries obsolete. On the declaration of war, Nabil accuses Nameless of reckless actions because of their indiscriminate arrests against Indokistan citizens visiting Nameless, and insults on Badra Shidqi. He also cites Nameless Betrayal incident as justification for the confrontation. As an act of stunt, he also literally torn off the treaty and dump it on a trash bin after declaring war, showing his seriousness on the confrontation.

As an act of defiance, Nameless published a comic strip satirise Indokistani declaration of war, and in another strip, Badra Shidqi. The insult again spark a wave of anger among citizens, strengthening support for war effort. On the next day, Nameless published another comic strip to insult Indokistan, with its storyline was about a nuclear bomb dropped over Jumstraad that would destroy Indokistan.

Wava C, in a televised statement on 11 August, declares that Nameless authority would respond on the declaration of war, with one of her minister to be dispatched to Indokistan to hand over the official response.

Nabil Ihsan then declares the start of "Operation Lotus" (Indonesian: Operasi Teratai), later renamed as "Operation Nostradamus" on 14 August, with its main goal was to defeat Nameless in any way possible, while also deploying troops to the border.

On 15 August, Indokistani government prepares an ultimatum against Nameless and was announced on 16 August. The ultimatum ordered Nameless to either merging themself with Indokistan, or to pay annual tribute if decides to remain independent, as a compensation from the Nameless Betrayal incident. Both orders effectively would make Nameless a vassal state under Indokistan. The ultimatum was set on a 24-hours deadline, and if both options was denied, Indokistan threatens an invasion against Nameless. In afternoon that day, first recorded skirmish between Indokistan and Nameless occurred.

Indokistani citizens reaction on the ultimatum was mixed, as several citizens viewed it as "too harsh" and even declared that the entire war effort was meaningless. Calls to end the confrontation began to be heard, and was accepted by president Farhan Abdurrahman, as he was not too enthusiastic on the war, and was symphatetic to Nameless. Farhan and Dicky L. K. later express their disagreement with Nabil Ihsan policy, and ordered him to stop the effort.

With his demands fallen into deaf ears, Farhan later intervened in government decisions as he prepares to block any other war effort set by Nabil. The intervention reaches its climax on 20 August on the evening session of the Parliament, when both figures had an intense argument on the confrontation. Several other parliament members, ignited by Farhan's intervention, gradually throw their support on Farhan, pressuring Nabil more to end the war. In the end of the session, Nabil surrenders to public pressure and effectively ended the state of war.

Aftermath

Indokistan and Nameless signed a peace treaty and restore diplomatic relations in 21 August. Despite being the victor on the war, Nameless rewarded nothing as the clauses on the treaty only dictates the resumption of diplomatic relations without mentioning the confrontation. A bilateral meeting was set in the end of August and hosted in Farhangrad Complex, Jumstraad. The meeting was attended by both countries ministers, and was productive, as both sides admitting fault and requests for apology.

Relations with Nameless rhetorics played a major part during 2011 presidential election, when all candidates had their own ideals on Indokistani relationship with Nameless. Nabil Ihsan remained on his opposition on Nameless and promising to restart confrontational policy against Nameless if elected, yet Dicky L. K. wishes to pursue a friendly relations with Nameless, and Badra Shidqi position was ambiguous. After Dicky's victory on the election, he fulfilled his promise on engaging friendly relations with Nameless.
