Indokistan

Establishment of Indokistan

The first people to gave idea on establishing a micronation, his views was supported by Farhan Abdurrahman and Dicky L. K., which was successfully convinced them to form the nation of Indokistan. He was the writer of the proclamation of establishment text and become a great contributor for the nation since then, especially after his appointment as prime minister by Farhan.

Prime ministership

After his appointment as prime minister, his first act was to form a parliament and a council of minister. On this period, he was the only Indokistani representative to foreign micronations, because of that he also act as a diplomat on national diplomacy, editor of Indokistan-related information inside MicroWiki, and the main editor of the Indokistan News Network.

On June 2011, he authorized process to convert Indokistan as a single-party state under United Peoples Party after order from president Farhan Abdurrahman, and also clarifying this issue after Indrawan Prasetyo of Los Bay Petros attacked the move.

After Dicky L. K. secured his victory in 2011 election, he trusted Nabil to became his head of government. His second period was stable compared with his first, with only minor issues occurred inside the country. On the last year of 2011, he contributed on the formation of first constitution and authorizes an embargo against Santos.

Presidency

On 15 January 2012, Dicky L. K. resigned, which forced him to took position as acting president. Shortly after his ascension as president, he decided to join Indonovia, which was later proved as a failure. Under his presidency, he declared the establishment of emergency government, survived until Kingdom of Al Rasyid Darussalam and Bobodolands unified with Indokistan to establish Federal Republic of Indokistan. Inside the Federal Republic, he was the member of Federal Council, a position he shared with Tian Abdurrahman and Jendri Mamahit.

After regained his presidential seat after departure of Jendri Mamahit in December 2012, he declared an establishment of provisional government and starting the process of national reform. On this era, he contributed on the reunification of Raflesinesia and Kingdom of Wirasena to Indokistan on February and March 2013. Presidential election was took place in June 2013, resulting on the victory of Tian Abdurrahman, ended his reign as president, as the new president also started new era of Indokistan, which was the formation of the Federal State of Indokistan.

Nabil was the figure inside this famous photo taken in July 2016, when he took off the Emblem of Indokistan from a wall in Suwarnakarta, symbolising the end of Indokistan.

Federal State

After July 2013, Nabil had no other political position than the governor of Suwarnakarta and member of the National Forum. He always showed his enthusiast inside the Forum, with always attending the session and to frequently proposed new legislation. He was trusted to become the main admin for the National Forum session rooms, despite that the nominal head of the Forum was the president.

He was the main representative led several other diplomats to the Madyaraksa Committee in August 2014 to establish the proposed confederation with Los Bay Petros. Sudden decision of Los Bay Petros to recall all of their representatives hampers all attempts of further discussion, led him to also left the committee and cancel the proposed confederation. Before the end of the committee, he already proposed the national flag for Madyaraksa.

He realizes that Indokistan has face hardships in mid-2015, since the country's development pace has gone slower than before, Nabil then decided that a mitigation should be prepared for the declining country. His decision to simplify government institutions in April 2016 was accepted by Forum members.

In 2016, understands that the country cannot be run with inactive members, he initiated the move to dissolve Indokistan. Despite of initial opposition, the proposal was then accepted since he successfully explained to other Forum members on the current situation Indokistan facing. He led the process to create the dissolution decree, and forced other members to ratify the draft, which was successfully passed in 24 June. On 5 June 2016, with Indokistan was dissolved, Nabil was handed responsibilty to handle the dissolution process, including to observe the states and "indivisible institutions and assets". After the dissolution of Aziziyah in 20 July, Nabil also declared his resignation as Suwarnakarta governor and declared the province extinct.

Post-Indokistan

His decision to disband his home state Suwarnakarta closes the history of Indokistan, as no successor state arose from the remnants of the country. He then founded Suwarnakarta Institute on July 2016 to accommodate his commitment to continue his micronational activities, despite without micronational citizenship. The Institute enable him to maintain contact with micronationalists, especially those of AIM, that elevates the Institute as non-country observer, the very first in the association.

He continues to support newly-arrived Indonesian micronationalists and to provide guidance to young leaders, especially to access the AIM and MicroWiki community. He remained highly active in AIM, engaging in discussion and consistently attending general assembly sessions, despite his institution have no voting rights.

He has no intention to establish a new micronation or to revive Indokistan, as he believe that he is the only one from Indokistani former citizens to remain committed to micronationalism, and his belief that a micronation should not be run by only one man.

Secretary General of AIM

In July 2019, AIM Chairman Excellent proposed his candidacy to the general assembly. Excellent decision to propose him was mainly motivated by their common commitment to fight for AIM rejuvenation, and to lay the foundation for reform on the organisation. Proposal to appoint him was not free from controversy, as his statelessness was the main obstacle for the passing of his candidacy. Member states had different interpretation on the AIM Charter articles on secretary general, as some member states believed that only individual of member states are eligible for office, while others held the view that the chairman has complete autonomy to appoint anyone.

After member states settled on the charter interpretation, his candidacy were able to proceed further. On 20 September 2019, his confirmation vote was passed by the general assembly, officially made him the first AIM secretary general in 4 years.

During his tenure, his proposal for the establishment of the AIM News Network was accepted by the general assembly in March 2020. He further set the foundation for AIM Museum inaugurated in May 2020. He served as the chief editor of AIMNN, and chief curator of the AIM Museum.

Close to the end of his tenure, he was criticised by member states due to his decision to not to appoint anyone to fill secretariat departments. He was then accused to deny young members and micronationalists a chance to join the secretariat, and failed to provide sufficient learning space fot new members.

In April 2020, he declared that he wishes to not to be reappointed as secretary general for the third term, as he wants to allow other members to succeed him. He wished that AIM could be rejuvenated under the leadership of new secretary general that originates from new member states joining the organisation in 2020. He then endorsed Eri Septio Priangga to succeed him, and Eri confirmation vote was passed in 2 May 2020.

Personal views

Proclamation text written by him

Micronational

He supported further implementation of socialism ideology in Indokistan, once proposing an establishment of socialist "peoples republic". He also supporting direct democracy and political activities without existence of any political party by contributing in the establishment of current, nonpartisan, deliberative assembly of Indokistan, the national forum. In economical fields, he argue that the private sector must be strictly regulated, and the government should hold entire means of production.

He is known to be a supporter of various micronational unification attempts, known with his aggresive approach to merge other micronations inside Indonesian sector to Indokistan. Establishment of Indonovia and formation of Federal Republic of Indokistan is an example of merge of Indokistan and another micronations, showing his support to unification attempts.

A supporter of "Indonesian irredentism", he views that LIR Union, formed in 2012, was a form of irredentism as first step to become a political union, and on the final state, a total merge between each members. Madyaraksa Committee formed in August 2014 was the closest part before the main goal of Indonesian irredentism, with he personally led Indokistani delegates to the committee. The failure of Madyaraksa dissappoint him, yet he never quits his ambition on irredentism.

Macronational

A self-described Left liberal, he advocates improvement for civil liberties in Indonesia. He supported reform to federal system in Indonesia, arguing the system would provide a better chance for the country known for its ethnic diversity. He opposed Indonesian authority prohibition on communist ideology on basis of political freedom and personal rights, and called the authority to revoke the law.

He supported Joko Widodo candidacy for Indonesian president in 2014, and during his reelection in 2019, despite in recent times lamenting the increasing threat to political freedom and personal rights occurred during his presidency.
