The Republic of Indonesia is a country in Southeast Asia. 

Comprising 17,508 islands, it is the world's largest archipelagic state. 

With a population of 222 million people in 2006, it is the world's fourth most populous 
country and the most populous Muslim-majority nation, 
although officially it is not an Islamic state. 

Indonesia is a republic, with an elected parliament and president. 

The nation's capital city is Jakarta. 

The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor and Malaysia. 

Other neighboring countries include Singapore, the Philippines, Australia, 
and the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

The Indonesian archipelago has been an important trade region since at 
least the seventh century, when the Srivijaya Kingdom formed trade links 
with China. 

Indonesian history has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to 
its natural resources. 

Under Indian influence, Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished from 
the early centuries CE. 

Muslim traders brought Islam, and European powers fought one another 
to monopolize trade in the Spice Islands of Maluku during the Age of Discovery. 

Following three and a half centuries of Dutch colonialism, Indonesia secured 
its independence after World War II. 

Indonesia's history has since been turbulent, with challenges posed by 
natural disasters, corruption, separatism, a democratization process, 
and periods of rapid economic change.

Across its many islands, Indonesia consists of distinct ethnic, linguistic, 
and religious groups. 

The Javanese are the largest and most politically dominant ethnic group. 

As a unitary state and a nation, Indonesia has developed a shared identity 
defined by a national language, a majority Muslim population, and a history 
of colonialism and rebellion against it. 

Indonesia's national motto, "Bhinneka tunggal ika" ("Unity in Diversity" lit. "many, yet one"), 
articulates the diversity that shapes the country. 

However, sectarian tensions and separatism have led to violent confrontations 
that have undermined political and economic stability. 

Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas 
of wilderness that support the world's second highest level of biodiversity. 

The country is richly endowed with natural resources, 
yet poverty is a defining feature of contemporary Indonesia.
