The population of Indonesia is 261 million. That is a lot of people. The majority of the people live on the Island of Java. The capital city is Jakarta. In Jakarta, the population is 10 million. A couple other major cities in Indonesia are, Surabaya, and Bandung. In Surabaya, the population is 2.8 billion. They are known for having on of the busiest ports. In Bandung, they have the 2nd largest metropolitan. They are recognized for having a very good educational system. In fact, they have over 50 institutions of higher education. In Indonesia, they for the most part speak Indonesian. But, they have 300 different types of languages spoken. They are one of the poorest countries in the world. Because of being poor, helping cure diseases and sicknesses is very hard. There are three diseases that were deathly there. They are named, Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever, Avian Influenza, and Dengue Fever. This was very hard on their country. The main religion in this country is Islamic. However, there are also other ones. In 1999, The East timor went under UN administration. In 2004, They elected their first ever president. In Indonesia, these dates were important. There are a lot of differences between our two countries. One thing that stood out to me was that this country is the world’s most major emerging economies.
