- Impact 1: Australians in Indonesia: Australian were stranded within new Indonesian territory. In response to this, the Indonesian government set up a citizen fee fund, taken from the budget and transferred through the eRepublik Bank of Indonesia to the Australians. Eventually, many Australians left Australian regions to several countries, mainly the UK; some to Canada and others. However, some Australians still chose to stay in Indonesia.
- Impact 2: New regions: many Indonesians left their home town and moved to the new Australian regions; however, there are still more Indonesians in Indonesia than in Australian regions. More than half of the Australian regions are still left without hospital service.
- Impact 3: Increasing demand in goods needed for the war made Indonesian GDP rise and put Indonesia as a runner up in the highest economy score. Many Indonesian economic indicators are improving. Indonesia has all runner up positions in eRepublik score.
- Impact 4: New gift companies: War brought a high demand for gifts to recover wellness. This made several people invest their gold in establishing new gift companies.
- Impact 5: Political Parties: The addition of 4 Australian parties makes up a total of 15 political parties working in Indonesia. Several Indonesians joined these Australian parties. However, only one survived while 3 others were suspended.
- Impact 6: English written media: realizing there were Australians who needed to know the situation of eRepublik Indonesia, many citizens started to publish their newspapers in English.
- Impact 7: Population boom: Indonesia experienced a second wave of population boom after promotions in many Indonesian forums, emphasizing the Indonesia-Australia war. This resulted in increased register rate, with more than 600 new citizens compared to before the war. This resulted in increasing state expenditures from citizen fees and higher demand for food and housing, making the Indonesian market unstable. This also made Indonesia's military average strength decrease and increased media output.
