In 2019, Indonesian President Joko Widodo announced the nation’s plans to move its capital city away from Jakarta to a newly planned city in East Kalimantan that is yet to exist: Nusantara. Although the new capital is meant to promote more regional equality, as well as relieve the burdens faced by the overpopulated and sinking Jakarta, there are potential social, political, economic, and environmental threats that are likely to arise from the capital relocation project that the government must urgently address if it wants to have a successful transition to the new city. By examining past trends and patterns, as well as events from other capital cities, one can predict the various consequences of moving the capital.
