Typressia (officially the Austronesian Republic of Typressia or the ART) is a country made up of islands near the Indonesian Archipelago.
In 2007, fossils were found of humans living in Typressia about 1.2 million years ago. Although prehistoric human life in Typressia is very unknown, it is thought that these people had came from Indonesia to inhabit the islands.
In c. 300 BC, people in Typressia made their own civilizations. But they were split up into 10 kingdoms - 8 on the mainland and 2 on Korabang, the island right below the mainland. Although they had different everything, they had one thing in common: Buddhism. It's why today 20% of the population is Buddhist. They had gotten Buddhism from their neighbours, which got it from South Asia and now it had spread to Southeast Asia. Despite having religion in common, many wars were frequent.
In c. 100 BC, the Chinese started to colonize Typressia and establish a new living on there to trade their silk. However, it was tough because not many kingdoms were open to trade and closed their ports. They ended up kicking out the Chinese and Chinese influence was never dominant.
The Salakupu kingdom came to power in 90 BC near the coastline of Korabang. They had started to colonize the uninhabited islands near it which later revolted and started their own kingdoms there. They had a clash with the Menipulung kingdom in the North which at the time had almost all the land of the island. They had border skrimishes and eventually the Salakupu Kingdom won.
The Dutch sailed to Typressia in 1712 from the west coast of Sumatra. When the Dutch tried spreading Christianity, it failed and many Dutch were kicked out. The Dutch could only trade in a specific port, and only certain people were authorized. However though, they sold goods. But Christianity used to be not allowed due to fears of the colonialists taking over.
Unity, but not peacefully
In 1750, the Konirang (Emperor) took the Menkosalah Kingdom on the mainland which conquered the entire mainland. Then they conquered all the other islands to make a united Typressia. The Konirang was a very strict ruler, more like a dictator. He had 3 classes. The first was him, the ruler. The 2nd was the people serving him, entertainers, warriors etc. The 3rd were "peasants". Food shortages (including apples) were extremely prevalent and many died under the rule.
In 1922, after Nen Baktung, the communist leader got ideas from the Russian Revolution and Karl Marx and basically started a revolution and the Communist Party won, but fell in ill health. So he chose Sororang Mikbung to be the leader. Sororang was a leader who had his grip over the people and never gave up his ownership. He had spread propaganda glorifying him. But he died in 1964. A new leader, Tukang Norbung decided to take power but after many revolts, he was ousted.
Japanese attempt to colonize Typressia
In April 4th 1941, The Japanese attempted to colonize Typressia. It seemed like the Typressians would be toast. But after rapid volcano explosions badly hitting the Japanese's ears, they retreated.
After communism ended in the country, they started modernizing and today the country is very advanced. Today it is a NATO and UN member.
The economy of Typressia is worth 5.68 trillion USD a year and is managed mainly by the Service sector. The Sector map can be seen here:

Most Typressian artists decide to start their pictures with two dots on the center, one on the near-end left and one on the near-end right. Pictures are usually made using thick brushes and thin brushes are almost never used.
The Typressians don't make buildings out of wood due to a fear of fire. Instead, they use stone, gold, iron, zinc and other minerals.
Samchakang is the most popular type of music. It is composed using Dulangbeng instruments, a combination of drums and violins. Typressian music is very soft at first, but the intensity increases throughout the song.
In Typressian culture, there are many dances. The most common being the Tamboklyn.
Cuisine in Typressia is also somewhat impressive. Yokblenpang is a dish where you mix eggs with meat and add broccoli and cauliflower.
In Typressia, people usually take a bucket, at a ton of stuff in it, and swing it in the hopes of none of the items spilling. They also sometimes play football, soccer and cricket.
