It's my understanding that if you have some verifiable income
you can establish residency in Indonesia without to much hassle. I think you would start by going to the consulate and obtaining as long a visa as you can and then going to an agency that will do all the paper work for you. Civil servants, cops, etc. not only don't get paid much, they often have to buy their jobs and pay to keep them, so you will have to grease the wheels. You will waste you're time getting huffy about it and the system actually works quite well.
a cop gets paid $100k a year to be perfectly polite while writing you a $500 ticket. For that kind of money
you could get your own temple in Indonesia. And it is flat out the most beautiful place in the world.
