Indonesian sector (Indonesian: Sektor Indonesia) is a term used to categorise micronations bounded with and located inside Indonesian territory. The term was first used by Los Bay Petros and Indokistan to began creating a bond with other newly-born Indonesian micronations who roses up in between 2011 until 2012. There are currently more than 5 micronations who defined as the members of the Indonesian sectors. The sector is the largest by area inside MicroWiki Community, as its boundaries are nationwide (as opposite with the usual regional sectors), which itself is the 15th largest in the world. Majority of Indonesian sector micronations are the member of the Association of Indonesian Micronations.

Terminology

Beside "Indonesian sector", a synonym of "Indonesian micronational community" (Indonesian: Komunitas mikronasional Indonesia) also frequently used to refer groups of micronations in Indonesia.

Beside its location, a micronation to be considered as member of Indonesian sector also should have some form of bound with Indonesian national or one of its ethnic groups (Javanese, Sundanese, Minangkabau, Aceh and others) culture, and associating themselves with it. Recognition by at least another one Indonesian micronation also necessary for it.

Based on consensus, to be called as member of Indonesian sector, micronations should actually reside in Indonesia instead of only claiming regions in Indonesia. Claiming regions without residing on it would not enabled them recognition as member of the sector. In majority of "Indonesian micronation" that only claiming regions inside Indonesia without actually reside on it, its citizens also does not associating themselves with Indonesia, which removed a detrimental factor for recognition by other Indonesian micronation.

History

Indonesian micronations history is not known very much before the year 2010 when micronationalism in Indonesia arose. The first known Indonesian related micronation established was the Democratic Empire of Sunda, which claims to be the government of the former per-colonial Kingdom of Sunda in exile in Switzerland. The empire became a media headlines when two of its princesses, Lamia Roro Wiranatadikusumah Siliwangi Al Misri and Fathia Reza Wiranatadikusumah Siliwangi Al Misri, detained by Malaysian authorities at the border of Brunei on 13 July 2007, and charged for entering the country without a valid pass.

Earlier in 2006, Republic of Fiharaya was established by Omar Laode Norman in North Jakarta, which made Fiharaya recognised as a pioneer in modern Indonesian micronationalism. In 2007, Kingdom of Al Rasyid Darussalam was established under the rule of Abdul Rasyid I of Rasyidin Dynasty.

Indonesian micronationationalism arrived in MicroWikia in 2009, when Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman with his newborn micronation Federal Republic of Los Bay Petros appears on the internet for the first time. Being the first Indonesian micronation in the MicroWikia gave Los Bay Petros a great development; and in 2010 Indokistan was established and became the second Indonesian micronation to appear in the present day MicroWiki.

Republic of Fiharaya was "reprimanded" and forced to be disbanded immediately by Indonesian police on December 2010, after being misidentified as separatist movement. Indonesian police action against Fiharaya was then condemned by micronationalists, most notably by Los Bay Petros[1] and A1[2].

Indonesian micronationalism was not in a great change until 2011 when several Indonesian micronations established and emerged; such as Principality of Inesia, Federal Republic of Santos, Republic of Islamkistan, and Republic of Shuffle. Also in year 2011, the first ever Indonesian micronation organisation, the Association of Indonesian Micronations was established by Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman and Nabil Ihsan.

Heads of state of LIR Union during 2012 summit

Relationship formed inside the sector proved very strong, because each micronations inside the sector felt that their neighbor also their family of their own. This strong feeling of friendship resulting in a stable and peaceful atmosphere inside the sector. Last notable major conflict inside the sector was occured in January 2014, and even this conflict strengthen more the feeling of unity, instead of ruining it.

Various official summits was attempted by Indonesian micronationalists, motivated by 2012 LIR Union Summit which became the first success, remembering the previous failures. Unfortunately, great distance divide each micronationalists and financial problems always made the plan failed. The latest planned of Indonesian micronational summit was to be held in June 2015, with Indokistani capital Suwarnakarta as the host, which also failed.

Indonesian sector receives its strongest blow in 2015-2016, when the most powerful micronations inside the community, Indokistan and Los Bay Petros dissolved on that year. Until 2018, Indonesian sector micronations began to recover, despite of declining number of micronations because of inactivity or deliberate dissolution, and majority of the remaining active micronations is confined to the members of the AIM.

Characteristics

Micronations inside Indonesian sectors bears many universally-identifiable characteristics. Indonesian micronationalists have a high committment towards micronational simulationism, as opposite to secessionism, despite showing a high level of physical activities. In spite of several reasons on establishment of micronations in Indonesia, such as as an educational tools, cultural preservation, and for personal enjoyment, there are no single known Indonesian micronations who actually intended to secede from Indonesia. These behaviours can be explained by a strong patriotic views adhered by micronationalists and strong influence of Indonesian national ideology Pancasila that emphasized in "an united Indonesia". Fiharayan experience with Indonesian police in December 2010 also may contribute to the behaviour showed by Indonesian micronationslists to be cautious and strengthen their committment to simulationism, since Indonesian police may take their micronations as an actual threat to Indonesia.

Influenced by strong anti-communist nature of Indonesia politics, Indonesian micronations on their early days also followed the same suit. They discouraged communism from micronationalism, and attacks anyone they accused as communist. A successful rebellion toppled Communist Indokistani government in January 2011 and refusal of Indonesian micronations to recognize UMSSR (a communist breakaway from Los Bay Petros) from 2011 until end of 2012 was an example of anti-communism in Indonesian micronational community. In early 2013, the trend was changing, with micronations began to no longer discouraged communism on basis of political freedom. The behaviour was shown by recognition of communist Sunda Raya in 2014, a move that on the previous years was not imaginable.

Indonesian micronational community is one of the most religious-diverse community in Indonesia. Remembering conservative nature and hostility of Indonesian society towards unofficial religions, Indonesian micronationalists tends to take secular reaction and have no problem with meeting new individuals from different religions. Inside Indonesian sector, there are micronations and micronationalists that originated from minority groups, most notably the Shiites and Bahai'ist, that if they publicly declare their faith in Indonesian society, they will be easily scrutinized.

Geography

Micronations in Indonesia claims region which become their primary workplace, houses, land owned by their relatives, and often claims a such large region, even claims region outside their primary place.

It is bound with flora and fauna diversity, as lots of different animals and plants can be founded in Indonesian micronations. One micronation may have their own national plant or animal that based from animals and plants founded on their landclaims.

On the distribution on Indonesian micronations landclaims, more than half of micronations of Indonesia known to outside world are based or have only landclaims on the island of Java, with small number of micronation is based outside Java. On this, Sultanate of Al Rasyid Darussalam are based on the island of Sulawesi, and few of Indonesian micronations has landclaims outside Java.

Micronational organisations inside Indonesian sector

Association of Indonesian Micronations (AIM), founded in 2011 by Los Bay Petros and Indokistan, is the only intermicronational organisation with relative influence inside Indonesian sector and is uniting Indonesian micronations. Suwarnakarta Institute, established on July 2016, runned by former Indokistani citizens is also another micronational organisation devoted itself to the development of micronationalism inside the sector.

Several inactive organisations also once active inside Indonesian sector and devoted itself for micronations inside it, there were TASPAC, LIR Union, and Indonesian Micronational League (LMI).
