The Javanese Republic is an island state in maritime Southeast Asia.
The Javanese Republic emerged from the ashes of Indonesia. Once the economy crashed and the elected government were incapable of fixing things, the military took over and proclaimed martial law. It was supported by the majority of the public. The military junta has revived the policies of the Suharto regime of the 20th century.
Once peace was restored in Java, they sent their forces to regain control over the rebellious provinces. Unfortunately they faced stiff resistance by both the Sumatran Alliance and the Dayak Council, putting an end to their plans. Java then began to invade Malaysia and Australian territory, taking advantage of the fact that mana storms had weakened Australia. The raids ended upon the formation of the Australia and New Zealand Allied Confederation (ANZAC).
