It was a collective executive authority comprising of remaining active members of Indokistani society, which was Mustafa Hakim, Dicky L. K., and Lindy Lucky.
The Council suspended most of national institutions, established radical changes and centralisation policies, and set a reform plan in order to ensure survivability of the country plagued by inactivity.

A vacuum period was deliberately installed by Indokistani authorities from March until April 2012 in order to allow Indokistani citizens to concentrate on their educational examination took place on that period. Despite of confidence on easy resumption of activities after the period, restoration of activities were instead failing since citizens and members of government began their departure from Indokistani territory. Furthermore, citizens reluctance and rejection to rejoin political activities and resume work on their posts also complicate the crisis.
After weeks of stressful attempts on restoration efforts, acting president Mustafa Hakim decided to declare a state of emergency and install the Emergency Government on 23 August 2012. Mustafa later gather the remaining active members of Indokistani society, including Dicky L. K. and Lindy Lucky, to form the National Salvation Council on 26 August 2012.
The name of the Council was inspired by the Romanian National Salvation Front governed the country after the collapse of its communist government in 1989. Throughout its existence, the council name was almost exclusively rendered by its English name, with its Indonesian translation only used later.
Members of the council consisted of the only remaining active members of Indokistani society. Each members were assigned with distinct responsibility and work portfolios.
