While Indonesia is represented on the map as one entity, it is much more. Made up of more than 17,000 individual islands spread across 735,000 square miles, Indonesia is the fourth largest country in the world by population, and easily one of its most diverse. There are more than 300 regional ethnic groups and 700 languages spoken.
