Located in Southeast Asia, Indonesia is the largest archipelago country in the world and is also known as the “country of thousands of islands.”
With a population over 28 billion, Indonesia is the fourth most populated country in the world as well as the biggest economy in Southeast Asia. However, its GDP per capita is only US$3,900, making it a low- and middle-income country.
A country of diverse cultures, there are more than 300 ethnic groups and 200 languages in Indonesia. It is also the country with the largest Muslim population in the world. The religion and culture of West Papua Province, the easternmost territory, are very different from the rest of Indonesia, and hence ethnic conflicts break out frequently.
