Introducing Indonesia

Indonesia is a country in the Indian and Pacific Oceans off the mainland of South-East Asia. It is an archipelago that lies across Equator and covers a distance of one-eighth of the circumference of the earth. The capital, Jakarta, is situated close to Java's northwest coast. Indonesia was the most populous country in Southeast Asia at the beginning of the 21st century and the fourth most populous in the world.

While it has land borders with Malaysia to the north and East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the east, its exclusive economic zone also reaches southern Australia; Palau, the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore and northern Thailand; and northwestern India. With a large but rapidly sculpted amount of green forests on all its islands and halfway between the poles, Indonesia is referred to as the Emerald of Ecuador.
