More on New Batavia

flag

New Batavia is a Dutch speaking interactive geofiction project based on the world of Micras. Interactive geofiction, often called "micronationalism", is a kind of internet-based game in which the different creators let their creations (in this case, their nations) interact with each other. This often means that different fictional countries on the same planet engage in diplomatic relations, trade, warfare, and so forth.

New Batavia is an Islamic Republic with a parliamentary form of government. The president is the ceremonial head-of-state. The government is headed by the Grand Vizier. Legislative power is vested in the Majlis-ash-Shoera. There is also an adivisory branch of government, vested in the Islamic Diwan.
