    Your challenge is pretty much what the title says: have Malaysia be significantly more successful than it was IOTL.

    The British keeping the Dutch East Indies in the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1814? Which would probably led to ATL Malaysia also encompassing OTL Indonesia, alongside OTL Malaysia

    It would never be called Malaysia, they would simply be called as Melayu provinces of Aceh, mind you.

    The Anglo-Dutch treaty did in fact Guarantee Aceh's independence at the Sumatran border, but strip Aceh all of their overseas possession in Malay Peninsula, which was quite large.

    Without British taking over the Peninsula, I could see them staying within the realm of Aceh, as they were the Suzerain (Raja Diraja) of the lesser Sultanates before that.
