Jabadebekoboggertangarpong, (abb. Japong), once variously known as Jakarta, Batavia , Depok, Bekasi, Bogor, Tangerang and Serpong , is the former capital city of the Indonesian Archipelago. On August 17th 2053 the Indoneesian government relocated to the island city of Cibandung in West Java. The main stock exchange and the headquarters of most financial houses remain in the coastal business zone of Puncak. Once a megacity  with a population of 50 million, Japong is now a world heritage marine park.
From 1982, when records began, Japong had been subsiding by an average of 20cms per annum. By 2025, when Ibu Suciwati was elected Governor by acclamation, it is estimated that due to the effects of global warming the sea level in Japong Bay had risen by approximately 2 metres.
Japong having suffered disastrous flooding in a five year cycle from 1937 to 2022, Gov. Suciwati ordered the building of a system of flood canals, seawalls and raised roadways.
The areas of Muara Angke on the northern coast, of Kelapa Gading in East Japong and Meruya in West Japong were cleared of their inhabitants and reverted to their original function as floodplains.
Indoneesia lies just north of the most complex active tectonic zone on earth. In early May 2047 there was the ultrarare occurence of the northward-moving Indo-Australian and the westward-moving Pacific plates colliding with the southwards moving Southeast Asian lithospheric plate along a 500 kilometre conjunction of both the Sunda and Java trenches.
This raised the southern seaboards of Java and Sumatra by as much as 217.9 metres, the result of which was to tip the northern seaboards downwards by an average of 57.6 metres. The sea dykes along the northern coast of Japong, a mere 18 metres high, were powerless to prevent the sea water rushing in. The estimated death toll ranges from 11 to 35 million . No accurate figures are available as the floods incapacitated all branches of the government.
Creationist John Baumgardner proposed the catastrophic plate tectonics theory to explain the biblical global flood. It has received tentative support from creationist organizations such as Answers in Genesis . Baumgardner accepts conventional theory that the continental masses were once united in a single supercontinent. He believes that a process of “runaway subduction” initiated the catastrophic breakup of this supercontinent, which in turn precipitated the global flood of Noah. During the year-long global flood, the continents rapidly moved to the positions they held until 2047.
In the ancient Batak traditions of North Sumatra, the earth rests on a giant snake, Naga-Padoha. One day, the snake tired of its burden and shook the Earth off into the sea. However, the God Batara-Guru saved his daughter by sending a mountain into the sea, and the entire human race descended from her. The Earth was later placed back onto the head of the snake.
Nowadays, most Bataks and the surviving Betawi people of Japong, are members of the Temple of Bumgardeners. Worshippers gather every week to tend hydronically grown rice crops and their holy sacrament, cannabis kallativa.
Japong Marine Resort
Visitors to the Japong Marine Resort need a pass, obtainable from the Department of Marine Resources and Forests in the nation’s capital, Cibandung. Magnetoskims depart from Tangkuban Prahu every hour throughout the dry season, taking approximately ninety minutes to reach the Greater Japong Maritime Zone. Being glass-bottomed, passengers are able to observe the rich marine life during their transit.
On arrival at Mulia Tower Two Pierhead, visitors descend by glass elevator into the reception area where they undergo a medical examination to ensure that their visit will have minimal impact on the environment.
Japong Bay attractions include the Monas Lighthouse, the Pancoran Beacon and the Taman Anggrek Marina. A honeymoon resort has been established at the Taman Anggrek Marina – an artificial archipelago of partly submerged skyscrapers with its renowned seafood restaurant and the Aquadome Retail Museum, a scuba diver’s paradise world of life before the Deluge. The underwater rooms at the Japong Marine Resort are fully air conditioned and offer a panoramic view of the beautiful coral reefs which now cover most of Old Japong. Visitors can still trace the ruins of the never completed monorail system transport from the last century.
Because the site lies offshore inter-species marriages are permitted and couples can get married in a variety of indoor or inwater locations. However, these marriages are not recognised by the Japong government .
