The increase in the number of poor people is caused by many factors, starting from inflation, Human Development Index (HDI), education, labor, unemployment rate, Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP), and average per capita expenditure. Dynamic systems have two main elements, namely Causal Loop Diagrams (CLD) and Stock Flow Diagrams (SFD). This research aims to determine the impact of moving the capital city from Jakarta to Nusantara on poverty levels in Balikpapan. The results obtained are based on the research graph, namely that moving the country's capital has a significant effect on the poverty level in the Balikpapan city, moving the country's capital resulted in population mobilization and an insignificant increase in the number of births.
