Indokistan-Wenang War (Indonesian: Perang Indokistan-Wenang) was a war between Indokistan and neighboring Wenang State. The war was mainly occured in northern part of the country (Al Rasyid Darussalam) where President Abdul Rasyid I resided. With western part of the country powerless to help the conflicting regions, local forces alone successfully crushed Wenang powers.


Wenang State was a micronation led by Oktavianus. During the Kingdom of Al Rasyid Darussalam's ascession to Federal Republic of Indokistan, the region became the only part of the Kingdom that was against the union, which later was peacefully seceded from Al Rasyid Darussalam.

On 24 September, Wenang authorities moved the border marker four meters entering Indokistani territory, which seen as a provocation against Indokistan. The change on border markers were condemned by Abdul Rasyid I, but Wenang authorities defend the change by claiming that the new marker was still inside their territory.

On the next day, President Abdul Rasyid I ordered Indokistan Armed Forces to be deployed to the border, after seeing the Wenang government sent their 1st Brigade to their border. Abdul Rasyid's secretary, Syarif Mahmud, later sent to the border to negotiate the retraction of the armies on the night of 25 September. He declared that the border conflict must be solved diplomatically.


Several attempts on diplomatic negotiations that was promised before was failed. Citing reasons that Wenang auhtorities had no respect on the intended negotiations, president Abdul Rasyid later immediately declared war against Wenang on 3 October. After the declaration of war, Bantik groups declared their support on Wenang, while Indokistan claimed to receiving support from Bugis, Bolaang Mongondow, and Gorontalo groups - this causing the escalation as an ethnic conflict.

On 4 October, President Abdul Rasyid I was attacked by Wenang troops while observing border regions and deployed troops. This only known attack against Indokistan causing damage on president's vehicle. Deployed Indokistani troops led by Bilal M later sent to counterattack the Wenang troops.

After the attacks on Indokistani president, Indokistan Armed Forces later granted permission to access the Wenang territory to defeat the country. Oktavianus, the leader of Wenang, was successfully arrested by Indokistani troops on 8 October when attempting to escape from the Wenang Staat, the capital of the country.


Leader of Wenang, Oktavianus, recognize the defeat of Wenang and immediately agreed to negotiate on the war reparation agreement. On the same day, the "Wenang Staat Agreement" was ratified, and officially ended the war. As agreed before, Wenang authorities paid Rp500.000 as war reparations to Indokistan before 20 October.
