Republic
of Indonesia (Indonesian: Republik Indonesia
Indonesia
[rɛpublik ɪndonesia]),[lacks stress] is a unitary sovereign state and transcontinental country located mainly in Southeast Asia, with some territories in Oceania. Situated between the Indian and Pacific oceans, it is the world's largest island country, with more than thirteen thousand islands.[12] At 1,904,569 square kilometres (735,358 square miles), Indonesia
Indonesia
is the world's 14th largest country in terms of land area and the 7th largest in terms of combined sea and land area.[13] With over 261 million people, it is the world's 4th most populous country as well as the most populous Austronesian and Muslim-majority country. Java, the world's most populous island,[14] contains more than half of the country's population. Indonesia's republican form of government includes an elected parliament and president. Indonesia
Indonesia
has 34 provinces, of which five have Special

status. Its capital is Jakarta, which is the second most populous urban area in the world. The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and the eastern part of Malaysia. Other neighbouring countries include Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Australia, Palau, and India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia
Indonesia
has vast areas of wilderness that support a high level of biodiversity.[15] The country has abundant natural resources like oil and natural gas, tin, copper and gold. Agriculture mainly produces rice, palm oil, tea, coffee, cacao, medicinal plants, spices and rubber.[16] Indonesia's major trading partners are China, United States, Japan, Singapore
Singapore
and India.[17] The Indonesian archipelago has been an important region for trade since at least the 7th century, when Srivijaya

Indonesia
consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups, with the largest—and politically dominant—ethnic group being the Javanese. A shared identity has developed, defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, religious pluralism within a Muslim-majority population, and a history of colonialism and rebellion against it. Indonesia's national motto, "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" ("Unity in Diversity" literally, "many, yet one"), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. Indonesia's economy is the world's 16th largest by nominal GDP and the 7th largest by GDP at PPP. Indonesia
Indonesia
is a member of several multilateral organisations, including the UN,[a] WTO, IMF and G20

Etymology Further information: Names of Indonesia The name Indonesia
Indonesia
derives from the Greek name of the Indos (Ἰνδός) and the word nesos (νῆσος), meaning "Indian islands".[20] The name dates to the 18th century, far predating the formation of independent Indonesia.[21] In 1850, George Windsor Earl, an English ethnologist, proposed the terms Indunesians—and, his preference, Malayunesians—for the inhabitants of the "Indian Archipelago or Malayan Archipelago".[22] In the same publication, one of his students, James Richardson Logan, used Indonesia
Indonesia
as a synonym for Indian Archipelago.[23][24] However, Dutch academics writing in East Indies publications were reluctant to use Indonesia; they preferred Malay Archipelago (Maleische Archipel); the Netherlands
Netherlands
East Indies (Nederlandsch Oost Indië), popularly Indië; the East (de Oost); and Insulinde.[25] After 1900, Indonesia
Indonesia
became more common in academic circles outside the Netherlands, and native nationalist groups adopted it for political expression.[25] Adolf Bastian, of the University of Berlin, popularised the name through his book Indonesien oder die Inseln des Malayischen Archipels, 1884–1894. The first native scholar to use the name was Ki Hajar Dewantara, when in 1913 he established a press bureau in the Netherlands, Indonesisch Pers-bureau.[21] History Main article: History of Indonesia Early history

Southeast Asia
from present-day Taiwan. They arrived around 2,000 BCE, and as they spread through the archipelago, confined the indigenous Melanesian peoples to the far eastern regions.[31] Ideal agricultural conditions and the mastering of wet-field rice cultivation as early as the 8th century BCE[32] allowed villages, towns, and small kingdoms to flourish by the first century CE. Indonesia's strategic sea-lane position fostered inter-island and international trade, including links with Indian kingdoms and Chinese dynasties, which were established several centuries BCE.[33] Trade has since fundamentally shaped Indonesian history.[34][35] From the 7th century CE, the powerful Srivijaya

The first regular contact between Europeans and the peoples of the archipelago began in 1512, when Portuguese traders, led by Francisco Serrão, sought to monopolise the sources of nutmeg, cloves, and cubeb pepper in Maluku.[42] Dutch and British traders followed. In 1602, the Dutch established the Dutch East India Company
Dutch East India Company
(VOC), and in the following decades, the Dutch gained a foothold in Batavia and Amboina. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, the company became the dominant European power in the archipelago.[43] Following bankruptcy, the VOC was formally dissolved in 1800, and the Dutch government established the Dutch East Indies
Dutch East Indies
as a nationalised colony.[44] For most of the Dutch colonial period, their control over the archipelago was tenuous outside of coastal strongholds; only in the early 20th century did Dutch dominance extend to what was to become Indonesia's current boundaries.[45] Japanese occupation during World War II
World War II
ended Dutch rule,[46] and encouraged the previously suppressed independence movement.[47] However, a later UN report stated that 4 million people died during the Japanese occupation as a result of famine and forced labour.[48] Modern era

Sukarno, the founding father and first President of Indonesia

Two days after the surrender of Japan, Sukarno
Sukarno
and Mohammad Hatta, the influential nationalist leaders, proclaimed Indonesian independence on 17 August 1945,[49][50][51] and were selected as the country's first President and Vice President respectively, by the Preparatory Committee for Indonesian Independence. The Netherlands
Netherlands
tried to re-establish their rule, and an armed and diplomatic struggle ensued. In December 1949, the Dutch formally recognised Indonesian independence in the face of international pressure,[50][52] with the exception of the Netherlands

Indonesia
following the 1962 New York Agreement

and the disputed[53] UN-mandated Act of Free Choice
Act of Free Choice
in 1969 that led to the still-ongoing Papua conflict. Despite major internal political, social and sectarian divisions during the four-year struggle, Indonesians, on the whole, found unity in their fight for independence. In the late 1950s, Sukarno
Sukarno
moved Indonesia
Indonesia
from democracy towards authoritarianism, and maintained his power base by balancing the opposing forces of the military and the Communist Party of Indonesia (Partai Komunis Indonesia, PKI).[54] An attempted coup on 30 September 1965 was countered by the army, which led a violent purge that targeted communists, ethnic Chinese and alleged leftists, during which the PKI was blamed for the coup and effectively destroyed.[55][56][57] The most widely accepted estimates are that between 500,000 and one million people were killed, with some estimates as high as two to three million.[58][59][60] The head of the military, General Suharto, outmaneuvered the politically weakened Sukarno
Sukarno
and was formally appointed president in March 1968. His New Order administration[61] was supported by the United States,[62][63][64] and encouraged foreign direct investment, which was a major factor in the subsequent three decades of substantial economic growth. However, his administration was widely accused of corruption and suppression of political opposition.[65][66][67] Indonesia
Indonesia
was the country hardest hit by the 1997 Asian financial crisis.[68] This increased popular discontent with the New Order and triggered mass protests across the country, which eventually led to Suharto's resignation on 21 May 1998.[69] In 1999, East Timor
East Timor
voted to secede from Indonesia, after a 25-year military occupation that was marked by international condemnation of repression of the East Timorese.[70] In the post- Suharto
Suharto
era, a strengthening of democratic processes has included a regional autonomy program, and the first direct presidential election in 2004.[71] Political and economic instability, social unrest, corruption, and terrorism slowed progress; however, in recent years the economy has performed strongly. Although relations among different religious and ethnic groups are largely harmonious, sectarian discontent and violence have persisted.[72] A political settlement to an armed separatist conflict in Aceh

Lying along the equator, Indonesia's climate tends to be relatively even year-round.[77] Indonesia
Indonesia
has two seasons—a wet season and a dry season—with no extremes of summer or winter.[78] For most of Indonesia, the dry season falls between April and October with the wet season between November and March.[78] Indonesia's climate is almost entirely tropical, dominated by the tropical rainforest climate found in every major island of Indonesia, followed by the tropical monsoon climate that predominantly lies along Java's coastal north, Sulawesi's coastal south and east, and Bali, and finally the tropical Savanna climate, found in isolated locations of Central Java, lowland East Java, coastal southern Papua and smaller islands to the east of Lombok. However, cooler climate types do exist in mountainous regions of Indonesia

1,300 to 1,500 metres (4,300 to 4,900 feet) above sea level. The oceanic climate (Köppen Cfb) prevail in highland areas with fairly uniform precipitation year-round, adjacent to rainforest climates, while the subtropical highland climate (Köppen Cwb) exist in highland areas with a more pronounced dry season, adjacent to tropical monsoon and savanna climates.

Some regions, such as Kalimantan

and Sumatra, experience only slight differences in rainfall and temperature between the seasons, whereas others, such as Nusa Tenggara, experience far more pronounced differences with droughts in the dry season, and floods in the wet. Rainfall is plentiful, particularly in West Sumatra, West Kalimantan, West Java, and Papua. Parts of Sulawesi
Sulawesi
and some islands closer to Australia, such as Sumba

is drier. The almost uniformly warm waters that make up 81% of Indonesia's area ensure that temperatures on land remain fairly constant. The coastal plains averaging 28 °C (82.4 °F), the inland and mountain areas averaging 26 °C (78.8 °F), and the higher mountain regions, 23 °C (73.4 °F). The area's relative humidity ranges between 70 and 90%. Winds are moderate and generally predictable, with monsoons usually blowing in from the south and east in June through October and from the northwest in November through March. Typhoons and large scale storms pose little hazard to mariners in Indonesian waters; the major danger comes from swift currents in channels, such as the Lombok

and Sape straits. Geology Main article: Geology of Indonesia See also: Volcanoes of Indonesia

and Nusa Tenggara, and then to the Banda Islands of Maluku to northeastern Sulawesi.[79] Of the 400 volcanoes, around 130 are active.[80] Between 1972 and 1991, 29 volcanic eruptions were recorded, mostly on Java. While volcanic ash has resulted in fertile soils (a factor in historically sustaining high population densities of Java
Java
and Bali),[81] it makes agricultural conditions unpredictable in some areas.[82] A massive supervolcano erupted at present-day Lake Toba
Lake Toba
around 70,000 BCE. Earth's largest eruption in the last 25 million years, it is believed to have caused a global volcanic winter and cooling of the climate, and subsequently led to a genetic bottleneck in human evolution, though the eruption's precise effects are still debated.[83][84][85] The two most violent volcanic eruptions in modern times occurred in the archipelago; the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora—the largest known eruption during the past 10,000 years—resulted in 92,000 deaths and created an umbrella of volcanic ash which spread and blanketed Southeast Asia, plunging it into darkness for a week, and made much of Northern Hemisphere without summer in 1816.[86] The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa, which produced the loudest sound in recorded history,[87] resulted in 40,000 deaths that are attributed to the eruption itself and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world years after the eruption.[88] Recent disasters due to seismic activity include the 2004 Indian Ocean

earthquake and tsunami that killed an estimated 167,736 in northern Sumatra,[89] and the 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake. Biodiversity Main articles: Fauna of Indonesia

and Flora of Indonesia

Species endemic to Indonesia. Clockwise from top: Rafflesia arnoldii, orangutan, greater bird-of-paradise, and Komodo dragon.

Indonesia's size, tropical climate, and archipelagic geography support a high level of biodiversity.[15] Its flora and fauna is a mixture of Asian and Australasian species.[90] The islands of the Sunda Shelf (Sumatra, Java, Borneo, and Bali) were once linked to the Asian mainland, and have a wealth of Asian fauna. Large species such as the Sumatran tiger, rhinoceros, orangutan, Asian elephant, and leopard, were once abundant as far east as Bali, but numbers and distribution have dwindled drastically. In Sumatra
Sumatra
and Kalimantan, these are predominantly of Asian species. Forests cover approximately 70% of the country.[91] However, the forests of the smaller, and more densely populated Java, have largely been removed for human habitation and agriculture. Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara, and Maluku – having been long separated from the continental landmasses—have developed their own unique flora and fauna.[92] Papua was part of the Australian landmass, and is home to a unique fauna and flora closely related to that of Australia, including over 600 bird species.[93] Indonesia
Indonesia
is second only to Australia
Australia
in terms of total endemic species, with 36% of its 1,531 species of bird and 39% of its 515 species of mammal being endemic.[94] Indonesia's 80,000 kilometres (50,000 miles) of coastline are surrounded by tropical seas that contribute to the country's high level of biodiversity. Indonesia
Indonesia
has a range of sea and coastal ecosystems, including beaches, sand dunes, estuaries, mangroves, coral reefs, seagrass beds, coastal mudflats, tidal flats, algal beds, and small island ecosystems.[20] Indonesia
Indonesia
is one of Coral Triangle
Coral Triangle
countries with the world's greatest diversity of coral reef fish with more than 1,650 species in eastern Indonesia only.[95] The British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace
Alfred Russel Wallace
described a dividing line between the distribution of Indonesia's Asian and Australasian species.[96] Known as the Wallace Line, it runs roughly north–south along the edge of the Sunda Shelf, between Kalimantan
Kalimantan
and Sulawesi, and along the deep Lombok
Lombok
Strait, between Lombok
Lombok
and Bali. West of the line the flora and fauna are more Asian – moving east from Lombok they are increasingly Australian until the tipping point at the Weber Line. In his 1869 book, The Malay Archipelago, Wallace described numerous species unique to the area.[97] The region of islands between his line and New Guinea
New Guinea
is now termed Wallacea.[96] Environment Main article: Environment of Indonesia Indonesia's large and growing population, and rapid industrialisation, present serious environmental issues. They are often given a lower priority due to high poverty levels and weak, under-resourced governance.[98] Issues include the destruction of peatlands, large-scale illegal deforestation and related wildfires causing heavy smog over parts of western Indonesia, Malaysia
Malaysia
and Singapore; over-exploitation of marine resources; and environmental problems associated with rapid urbanisation and industrial development, including air pollution, traffic congestion, garbage management, and reliable water and waste water services.[98] Indonesia
Indonesia
has a below average but slightly improving performance in the global Environmental Performance Index (EPI) with an overall ranking of 107 out of 180 countries in 2016. This is also below average in the Asia-Pacific region, behind Thailand
Thailand
but slightly ahead of China.[99] Much of Indonesia's deforestation is caused by the expansion of palm oil industry[100] that requires land reallocation as well as changes to the natural ecosystems. Expansions can generate wealth for local communities, but it can also degrade ecosystems and cause social problems.[101] This makes Indonesia
Indonesia
the world's fourth largest emitter of greenhouse gases.[99] Such activity also threatens the survival of indigenous and endemic species, including 140 species of mammals identified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as threatened, and 15 as critically endangered, including the Bali

starling,[102] Sumatran orangutan,[103] and Javan rhinoceros.[104] Government and politics Main articles: Politics of Indonesia

Indonesia
Indonesia
is a republic with a presidential system. As a unitary state, power is concentrated in the central government. Following the resignation of President Suharto
Suharto
in 1998, political and governmental structures have undergone major reforms, with four constitutional amendments revamping the executive, legislative and judicial branches.[105] The President of Indonesia
President of Indonesia
is the head of state and head of government, commander-in-chief of the Indonesian National Armed Forces (Tentara Nasional Indonesia), and the director of domestic governance, policy-making, and foreign affairs. The president appoints a council of ministers, who are not required to be elected members of the legislature. The president may serve a maximum of two consecutive five-year terms.[106] The highest representative body at national level is the People's Consultative Assembly (Majelis Permusyawaratan Rakyat, MPR). Its main functions are supporting and amending the constitution, inaugurating and impeaching the president,[107][108] and formalising broad outlines of state policy. The MPR comprises two houses; the People's Representative Council (Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat, DPR), with 560 members, and the Regional Representative Council
Regional Representative Council
(Dewan Perwakilan Daerah, DPD), with 132 members.[109] The DPR passes legislation and monitors the executive branch. Reforms since 1998 have markedly increased its role in national governance,[105] while the DPD is a new chamber for matters of regional management.[110][108] Most civil disputes appear before the State Court (Pengadilan Negeri); appeals are heard before the High Court (Pengadilan Tinggi). The Supreme Court of Indonesia
Supreme Court of Indonesia
(Mahkamah Agung) is the country's highest court, and hears final cessation appeals and conducts case reviews. Other courts include the Commercial Court, which handles bankruptcy and insolvency; the State Administrative Court (Pengadilan Tata Negara) to hear administrative law cases against the government; the Constitutional Court (Mahkamah Konstitusi) to hear disputes concerning legality of law, general elections, dissolution of political parties, and the scope of authority of state institutions; and the Religious Court (Pengadilan Agama) to deal with codified Sharia
Sharia
Law cases.[111] In addition, the Judicial Commission (Komisi Yudisial) monitors the performance of judges. Parties and elections Main articles: List of political parties in Indonesia
List of political parties in Indonesia

Indonesia
has had a multi-party system. In all legislative elections since the fall of New Order, no political party has managed to win an overall majority of seats, resulting in coalition governments. The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle
Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle
(PDI-P), which secured the most votes in the 2014 elections, is the party of the current President, Joko Widodo.[112] The Great Indonesia
Indonesia
Movement Party (Gerindra) is the third largest political party.[113] Other notable parties include the Party of the Functional Groups (Golkar), the Democratic Party, and the National Awakening Party
National Awakening Party
(PKB). The current DPR consists of 10 political parties, with a parliamentary threshold of 3.5% of the national vote.[114] The first general election was held in 1955 to elect members of the DPR and the Konstituante. At the national level, Indonesian people did not elect a president until 2004. Since then, the president is elected for a five-year term, as are the party-aligned members of the DPR and the non-partisan DPD.[109][105] Beginning with 2015 local elections, Indonesia
Indonesia
starts to elect governors and mayors simultaneously on the same date. Political divisions Main article: Subdivisions of Indonesia Indonesia
Indonesia
consists of 34 provinces, five of which have special status. Each province has its own legislature (Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Daerah, DPRD) and an elected governor. The provinces are subdivided into regencies (kabupaten) and cities (kota), led by regents (bupati) and mayors (walikota) respectively and also their own legislature (DPRD Kabupaten/Kota). These are further subdivided into districts (kecamatan or distrik in Papua), and again into administrative villages (either desa, kelurahan, kampung, nagari in West Sumatra, or gampong in Aceh). This number has evolved over time, the most recent change being the split of North Kalimantan
Kalimantan
from East Kalimantan
Kalimantan
in October 2012.[115] The village is the lowest level of government administration. Furthermore, it is divided into several community groups (rukun warga, RW) which are further divided into neighbourhood groups (rukun tetangga, RT). In Java, the village (desa) is divided further into smaller units called dusun or dukuh (hamlets), these units are the same as RW. Following the implementation of regional autonomy measures in 2001, the regencies and cities have become key administrative units, responsible for providing most government services. The village administration level is the most influential on a citizen's daily life and handles matters of a village or neighbourhood through an elected village chief (lurah or kepala desa). The provinces of Aceh, Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Papua, and West Papua have greater legislative privileges and a higher degree of autonomy from the central government than the other provinces. Aceh, for example, has the right to create certain elements of an independent legal system and several regional parties participate only in elections within the province.[116] In 2003, it instituted a form of sharia (Islamic law).[117] Yogyakarta
Yogyakarta
was granted the status of Special Region in recognition of its pivotal role in supporting the pro-independence side during the National Revolution and its willingness to join Indonesia

Since independence, Indonesia
Indonesia
has adhered to a "free and active" foreign policy, seeking to play a role in regional affairs commensurate with its size and location but avoiding involvement in conflicts among other countries.[121] In contrast to Sukarno's anti-imperialistic antipathy to Western powers and tensions with Malaysia, foreign policy since the New Order have been based on economic and political cooperation with the West.[122] Indonesia maintains close relations with its neighbours in Asia, and is a founding member of ASEAN and the East Asia

Indonesia's Armed Forces (TNI) include the Army (TNI–AD), Navy (TNI–AL, which includes Marine Corps), and Air Force (TNI–AU).[132] The army has about 400,000 active-duty personnel. Defense spending in the national budget was 0.9% of GDP in 2015,[133] and is controversially supplemented by revenue from military commercial interests and foundations.[134] The Armed Forces was formed during the Indonesian National Revolution, when it undertook a guerrilla warfare along with informal militia. As a result of this, and the need to maintain internal security, the Armed forces including the Army, Navy, and Air Force has been organised along territorial lines, aimed at defeating internal enemies of the state and potential external invaders.[citation needed] After a three-decade involvement and support for the Suharto
Suharto
regime, the TNI's formal representation in parliament was removed following political reforms in 1998. However, its political influence remains extensive.[135][136] Since independence, the country has struggled to maintain unity against local insurgencies and separatist movements.[137] Some, notably in Aceh
Aceh
and Papua, have led to an armed conflict, and subsequent allegations of human rights abuses and brutality from all sides.[138][139] The former was resolved peacefully in 2005,[73] while the latter still continues, amid a significant, albeit imperfect, implementation of regional autonomy laws, and a reported decline in the levels of violence and human rights abuses, since the presidency of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.[140] Other engagements of the army include the campaign against the Netherlands

major economies.[144] Indonesia's estimated nominal gross domestic product, as of 2017[update], is US$1.020 trillion while GDP in PPP terms is US$$3.257 trillion. It is the 16th largest economy in the world by nominal GDP and is the 7th largest in terms of GDP at PPP. As of 2017[update], per capita GDP in PPP is US$12,432 while nominal per capita GDP is US$3,895.[8] The debt ratio to GDP is 26%.[145] The services are the economy's largest and accounts for 43.3% of GDP (2016), followed by manufacturing sector (42.9%) and agriculture (13.7%).[146] Since 2012, it has employed more people than other sectors, accounting for 44.8% of the total labour force, followed by agriculture (34.3%) and industry (20.9%).[147] Agriculture, however, had been the country's largest employer for centuries.[citation needed] Overview

Vast palm oil plantation. Currently, Indonesia
Indonesia
is the world's largest producer of palm oil.

Over time, the structure of the Indonesian economy has changed considerably.[148] Historically, it has been heavily weighted towards agriculture, reflecting both its stage of economic development and government policies in the 1950s and 1960s to promote agricultural self-sufficiency.[148] A gradual process of industrialisation and urbanisation began in the late 1960s, and accelerated in the 1980s as falling oil prices saw the government focus on diversifying away from oil exports and towards manufactured exports.[148] This development continued throughout the 1980s and into the next decade despite the 1990 oil price shock, during which the GDP rose at an average rate of 7.1%. The consistent growth saw the official poverty rate falling from 60% to 15%.[149] From the mid 1980s, the economy became more globally integrated as trade barriers were reduced. The 1997 Asian financial crisis affected Indonesia
Indonesia
both economically and politically. The government's initial response was to float the rupiah, raise key domestic interest rates, and tighten fiscal policy. The effects of the crisis were severe. By November 1997, rapid currency depreciation had caused public debt to reach US$60 billion, imposing severe strains on the government's budget.[150] In 1998, real GDP contracted by 13.1% and inflation reached 72% (slowed to 2% in 1999). The economy reached its low point in mid-1999 with only 0.8% real GDP growth. Recent strong economic growth has been accompanied by relatively steady inflation.[151] Since an inflation target was introduced in 2000, the GDP deflator and the CPI have grown at an average annual pace of 10¾% and 9%, respectively, similar to the pace recorded in the two decades prior to the 1997 crisis, but well below the pace in the 1960s and 1970s.[152] Inflation
Inflation
has also generally trended lower through the 2000s, with some of the fluctuations in inflation reflecting government policy initiatives such as the changes in fiscal subsidies in 2005 and 2008, which caused large temporary spikes in CPI growth.[151] Since 2007, however, with improvement in banking sector and domestic consumption, growth has accelerated to over 6% annually.[153][154] This helped Indonesia
Indonesia
weather the 2008–2009 Great Recession,[155] during which the economy performed strongly, and later in 2011 saw the country regain the investment grade rating it lost in 1997.[156] The growth, however, has slowed to 5% since 2014 due to a ban on exports of unprocessed mineral ores in an attempt to boost the domestic mineral processing industry and encourage exports of higher value-added mineral products,[157] and a rise in interest rates.[158] As of 2016[update], 10.8% of the population lived below the poverty line and the official open unemployment rate was 5.5%.[159][160] Palm oil
Palm oil
production is important to the economy as Indonesia
Indonesia
is the world's biggest producer and consumer of the commodity, providing about half of the world's supply.[100] Plantations in the country stretch across 6 million hectares as of 2007,[161] with a replanting plan set for an additional 4.7 million to boost productivity in 2017.[162] As of 2012[update], Indonesia
Indonesia
produces 35% of the world's certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO).[163] Automotive industry produced almost 1.18 million motor vehicles in 2016, ranking Indonesia as the 17th largest producer in the world.[164] Nowadays, Indonesian automotive companies are able to produce cars with high ratio of local content (80%–90%).[165] With production of 13 billion packs in 2016, Indonesia
Indonesia
is the second largest producer of instant noodle after China which produces 38.5 billion packs a year.[166] Indofood, the world's largest instant noodle producer, is known for Indomie, one of Indonesia's best known brands.[167] Of the world's 500 largest companies measured by revenue in 2016, the Fortune Global 500, Pertamina
Pertamina
was the sole Indonesian company on the list.[168]

ran a trade surplus in 2016, with total exports and imports of US$140 billion and US$132 billion, respectively. During the last five years, exports and imports have decreased at an annual rate of 3 to 4.8%, from US$224 billion and US$173 billion, respectively in 2011. The country's main exports are led by palm oil and coal briquettes, with jewellery, cars and vehicle parts, rubber, and copper ore making up the majority of other exports, while imports mainly consist of refined petroleum and crude petroleum, with telephones, computers, vehicle parts and wheat cover the majority of other imports.

There are usually bus services such as Kopaja
Kopaja
and the more sophisticated TransJakarta, the longest bus rapid transit (BRT) system in the world that boasts some 230.9 kilometres (143.5 miles) in 13 corridors and 10 cross-corridor routes[170] and carrying 430,000 passengers daily in 2016.[171] Other cities such as Yogyakarta, Palembang, Bandung, Denpasar, Pekanbaru, Semarang, Makassar, and Padang
Padang
also have BRT systems in place without segregated lanes. Many cities have motorised auto rickshaws (bajaj), and share taxis known locally as Angkot are a common sight in even medium-sized towns. Becak, a cycle rickshaw, is a regular sight on city roads and provide inexpensive transportation. Rail transport

primarily dedicated to transport bulk commodities and long-distance passenger traffic. The inter-city rail network on Java is complemented by local commuter rail services in the Jakarta metropolitan area, Surabaya, Medan, and Bandung. In Jakarta, the suburban rail services carry 885,000 passengers a day.[172] In addition, mass rapid transit and light rail transit systems are currently under construction in Jakarta

Maritime transport is vital for economic integration since Indonesia encompasses a sprawling archipelago. It provides essential links between parts of the country for domestic and foreign trade, with each of the major islands having at least one port city. Boats in common use include large container ships, a variety of ferries, passenger ships, sailing ships, and smaller motorised vessels. Traditional wooden vessel pinisi are widely used as the inter-island freight service. Port
Port
of Tanjung Priok is Indonesia's busiest port, handling over 5.20 million TEUs.[176] A two-phase "New Tanjung Priok" extension project is currently underway, which will triple the existing annual capacity when fully operational in 2023. In 2015, ground breaking of the strategic North Sumatra's Kuala Tanjung Port
Port
has been completed. It is expected to accommodate 500,000 TEUs per year,[177] overtaking Johor's Tanjung Pelepas Port
Port
and could even compete with the port of Singapore.[178] Frequent ferry services cross the straits between nearby islands, especially in the chain of islands stretching from Sumatra
Sumatra
through Java
Java
to the Lesser Sunda Islands. On the busy crossings between Sumatra, Java, and Bali, car ferries frequently run 24 hours per day. There are international ferry services between across the Strait of Malacca between Sumatra
Sumatra
and Malaysia, and between Singapore
Singapore
and nearby Indonesian islands, such as Batam. A network of passenger ships makes longer connections to more remote islands, especially in the eastern part of the archipelago. The national shipping line, Pelni, provides passenger service to ports throughout the country on a two- to four-week schedule. These ships generally provide the least expensive way to cover long distances between islands. Smaller privately run boats also provide service between islands. As of 2014[update], there were 237 airports in Indonesia,[179] including 17 international airports. Soekarno–Hatta International Airport is the 22nd busiest airport in the world, serving 54 million passengers in 2016.[180] Today the airport is running over capacity. After an expansion with a third terminal was completed in 2016, the total capacity of the three terminals increased to 43 million passengers a year. The first and second terminals will be revitalised in order to accommodate 67 million passengers a year.[181] Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali

Garuda Indonesia, the country's flag carrier since 1949, is one of the world's leading airlines and the 20th member of the global airline alliance SkyTeam. The airline's modernisation plan in 2009 has resulted in numerous awards, such as Skytrax's "5-Star Airline" rating and "The World's Best Cabin Crew."[182][183] Energy Main article: Energy in Indonesia According to IEA, Indonesia
Indonesia
was the 10th top natural gas producer in 2009: 76 billion cubics (bcm) 2.5% of world production of which 36 bcm was exported.[184] In 2009, Indonesia
Indonesia
was the 5th top coal producer: 263 million tonnes hard coal and 38 million tonnes brown.[184] The majority of this, 230 Mt of hard coal, was exported.[185] Indonesia has significant energy resources, starting with oil – it has 22 billion barrels of conventional oil and gas reserves, of which about 4 billion are recoverable. That's the equivalent of about 10 years of oil production and 50 years of gas. It has about 8 billion barrels of oil-equivalent of coal-based methane (CBM) resources. It has 28 billion tonnes of recoverable coal and has 28 gigawatts (GW) of geothermal potential. 1 Includes recoverable resources of oil and gas yet to be discovered. It has even more in the form of solar, wind, biomass and biofuel potential. Indonesia's domestic oil consumption has grown from 1.2 million barrels per day in 2003 to 1.6 million barrels per day in 2013.[184] As of 2015, Indonesia's total national installed power generation capacity stands at 55,528.51 MW.[186] Jatiluhur Dam, the country's largest dam, serves several purposes including the provision of hydroelectric power generation, water supply, flood control, irrigation and aquaculture. The power station has an installed capacity of 186.5 MW which feeds into the Java
Java
grid managed by the state-owned electricity company (Perusahaan Listrik Negara). The Jatiluhur reservoir helps irrigate 240,000 ha (593,053 acres) of rice fields. The earth-fill dam is 105 m (344 ft) high and withholds a reservoir of 3,000,000,000 m3 (2,432,140 acre⋅ft).[187][188][189] Science and technology Main article: Science and technology in Indonesia Though not considered as a leading country in science and technology, there are many examples of notable scientific and technological developments by Indonesians. Living in an agrarian and maritime culture, they have been famous in some traditional technologies, particularly in agriculture and marine. In the former, as with other people in Southeast Asia, they are famous in paddy cultivation technique namely terasering. Bugis

More than 742 different languages and dialects are spoken in the country.[226][3] Some belong to the Austronesian language family, while over 270 Papuan languages
Papuan languages
are spoken in Papua.[3] The official language is Indonesian, a variant based on the prestige dialect of Malay, which for centuries had been the lingua franca of the archipelago. It was promoted by nationalists in the 1920s, and declared the official language under the name Bahasa Indonesia
Indonesia
in the proclamation of independence.[227] The language has experienced centuries of local and foreign influences, including from Javanese, Sundanese, Minangkabau, Hindi, Sanskrit, Chinese, Arabic, Dutch, Portuguese and English.[227][228][229] Nearly every Indonesian speaks the language due to its wide use in education, academics, communications, business, politics, and mass media, albeit as a second language; the first language being the local ones, of which Javanese is the most widely spoken.[12] In 1930, Dutch and other Europeans (Totok), Eurasians, and derivative people like the Indos, numbered 240,000 or 0.4% of the total population.[230] Historically, they constituted only a tiny fraction of the native population and continue to do so today. Despite the Dutch presence for almost 350 years, the Dutch language has no official status[231] and the small minority that can speak the language fluently are either educated members of the oldest generation, or employed in the legal profession,[232] as certain law codes are still only available in Dutch.[233] Urban centres

Indonesia
is the world's most populous Muslim-majority country with 227 million adherents in 2017, with the majority being Sunnis (99%).[238][12] The Shias and Ahmadis respectively constitute 0.5% and 0.2% of the Muslim population.[239][240] Christians made up almost 10% of the population (7% Protestant, 2.9% Roman Catholic), 1.7% were Hindu, and 0.9% were Buddhist

The natives of the archipelago practiced indigenous animism and dynamism, beliefs that are common to the Austronesian people.[243] They venerated and revered ancestral spirit and believed that some spirits may inhabit certain places such as large trees, stones, forests, mountains, or sacred places.[243] This unseen spiritual entity with supernatural power is identified by the ancient Javanese, Sundanese and Balinese as "hyang" that can mean either "divine" or "ancestral", and tends to be associated with God in modern Indonesian.[244] Examples of Indonesian native belief systems include the Sundanese Sunda Wiwitan, Dayak's Kaharingan, Torajan Aluk' To Dolo, Manusela and Nuaulu's Naurus, Batak's Parmalim faith, and the Javanese Kejawèn. These native customs and beliefs had significant impact on how certain faiths are practiced in the country, evidenced by a large proportion of people—such as the Javanese abangan, Balinese Hindus, and Dayak Christians—practicing a less orthodox, syncretic form of their religion.[245] Though no longer a majority, Hinduism
Hinduism
and Buddhism remain defining influences in Indonesian culture. Hindu

influences reached the archipelago as early as the first century CE.[246] Around 130 AD, a Sundanese kingdom named Salakanagara emerged in western Java, and is the first historically recorded Indianised kingdom in the archipelago, created by an Indian trader after marrying a local Sundanese princess.[247]

kingdoms and various communities, with each trying to carve out a region or island for control.[250] Four diverse and contentious sultanates emerged in northern and southern Sumatra, west and central Java, and southern Borneo. They declared Islam

as state religion and pursued war against each other as well as the Hindus and other non- Muslim
Muslim
infidels.[251] Subsequently, Hindu, Buddhist, Confucian, animist communities and unbelievers bought peace by agreeing to pay jizya tax to a Muslim ruler, while others began adopting Islam

to escape the tax.[252] In some regions, people continued their old beliefs and adopted a syncretic version of Islam, while others left and concentrated as communities in islands that they could defend. For example, Hindus of western Java

and neighbouring small islands.[253] While this period of religious conflict and inter- Sultanate

warfare was unfolding, and new power centers were attempting to consolidate regions under their control, European powers arrived.[253] The archipelago was soon dominated by the Dutch empire,[254] who helped prevent inter-religious conflict, and slowly began the process of excavating, preserving and understanding the archipelago's ancient Hindu

is largely a result of Calvinist and Lutheran missionary efforts during the colonial period.[262][263][264] The Dutch Reformed Church was long at the forefront in introducing Christianity

to the natives, and was later joined by other Reformed churches that separated from it during the 19th century.[265] The VOC regulated the missionary work so it could serve its own interests and restricted it to the eastern part of the archipelago.[266] Although the Calvinist and Lutheran branch are the most common, a multitude of other denominations can be found elsewhere in Indonesia.[267] The Batak Protestant Christian

Education in Indonesia
Education in Indonesia
is compulsory for twelve years,[270] and the constitution dictates that 20% of the national budget is to be prioritised for education.[271][108] Parents can choose between state-run, non sectarian public schools supervised by the Ministry of Education and Culture or private or semi-private religious (usually Islamic) schools supervised and financed by the Department of Religious Affairs.[272] Private international schools, which are not based on the national curriculum, are also available. The enrolment rate is 90% for primary education (2015), 76% for secondary education, and 24% for tertiary education. The literacy rate is 95.22% (2016) and the government expenditure on education as 3.59% of GDP (2015).[273] By 2014, there were 118 state universities and 1,890 private higher educational institutions in Indonesia. Entry to state universities depends on the nationwide entrance examination (SNMPTN and SBMPTN). According to the 2017 QS World University Rankings, the top university in Indonesia

It is expected that spending on healthcare will increase by 12% a year and reach US$46 billion a year by 2019.[277] Under JKN, all citizens will receive coverage for a range of treatments via health services from public providers as well as private organisations that have opted to join the scheme. Although health indicators have significantly improved in recent decades such as improvement in life expectancy (from 63 in 1990 to 71 in 2012)[278] and declining child mortality (from 85 deaths per 1,000 births in 1990 to 27 deaths in 2015),[279] Indonesia
Indonesia
continues to face health challenges that include maternal and child health, low air quality, malnutrition, high rate of smoking,[277] and communicable diseases. Demographic issues Close to 80% of the population lives in the western parts of the archipelago,[280] but they are growing at a slower pace than the rest of the country.[281] This has created a gap in wealth, unemployment rate, and health between densely populated islands and economic centres (such as Sumatra
Sumatra
and Java) and sparsely populated, disadvantaged areas (such as Maluku and Papua).[281] Economic inequality has affected both the economy and social structure, resulting in social discrimination.[282] Racism, especially against Chinese Indonesians
Indonesians
since the colonial period, still continues to date.[283][284] Recently, LGBT issues have gained attention in Indonesia.[285] While homosexuality is legal in most parts of the country, it is illegal in Aceh

Indonesian arts include both age-old art forms developed through centuries, and a recently developed contemporary art. Despite often displaying local ingenuity, Indonesian arts have experienced foreign influences—most notably from India, the Arab world, China
China
and Europe, as the result of centuries of contacts and interactions facilitated, and often motivated, by trade.[293] They are either work of arts produced by its people—created by Indonesian artists, or influenced by its culture and traditions. Painting is quite developed in Bali, where its people are famed for their artistry.[294] The Balinese art

Between the 8th and 15th century, Javanese civilisation has developed a refined stone sculpting art and architecture which was influenced by Hindu- Buddhist

Indonesian architecture has been influenced by foreign invaders, colonisers, missionaries, merchants and traders that brought cultural changes and profound effect on building styles and techniques. The most dominant influence has traditionally been Indian; however, Chinese, Arab, and European influences have also been significant. Traditional carpentry, masonry, stone and woodwork techniques and decorations thrive in the vernacular architecture, with numbers of traditional houses' styles have been developed. The traditional houses and settlements of the several hundreds ethnic groups of Indonesia

are extremely varied and all have their own specific history. They are at the centre of a web of customs, social relations, traditional laws, taboos, myths and religions that bind the villagers together. The house provides the main focus for the family and its community, and is the point of departure for many activities of its residents.[299] Examples include Toraja's Tongkonan, Minangkabau's Rumah Gadang

predates historical records. Various indigenous tribes incorporate chants and songs accompanied with musical instruments in their rituals. Angklung, kacapi suling, siteran, gong, gamelan, degung, gong kebyar, bumbung, talempong, kulintang and sasando are examples of traditional Indonesian instruments. The diverse world of Indonesian music genres are the result of the musical creativity of its people, and subsequent cultural encounters with foreign influences. They include gambus and qasida from the Middle Eastern Islamic music,[311] keroncong from Portuguese influences,[312] and dangdut—one of the most popular music genres in Indonesia—with notable Hindi music influence as well as Malay orchestras.[313] Today, Indonesian music industry enjoys both nationwide and regional popularity in Malaysia, Singapore
Singapore
and Brunei, due to common culture and intelligible languages between Indonesian and Malay. Scholars believe that Indonesian dances have had their beginning in rituals and religious worship.[314] Such dances are usually based on rituals, like the war dances, the dance of witch doctors, and dance to call for rain or any agricultural related rituals such as Hudoq

dance ritual of Dayak people. In Bali, dances have become the integral part of Hindu

Several royal houses—the istanas and keratons—still exist in some parts of the archipelago and have become haven of cultural conservation. The difference between courtly dance and common folk dance traditions is most evident in the Javanese dance. The palace court traditions are also evident in the Balinese and Malay court which usually imposes refinement and prestige. Java
