- Indonesia is a country in Southeast Asia that consists of more than
13,000 islands. The islands lie along the equator and extend more than
5,000 kilometers. Many of the islands cover only a few square
kilometers. But about a half of New Guinea and three quarters of Borneo
also belong to Indonesia. Both islands are the second-and-third largest
islands in the world, after Greenland. Many geographers divide the more
than 13,600 islands of Indonesia into three groups: (1) the Greater
Sunda Islands, (2) the lesser Sunda Islands, and (3) the Mollucas.
Indonesia also includes Irian Jaya, which is part of New Guinea.
The Greater Sunda includes Borneo, Sulawesi, Java and Sumatera. The Lesser Sunda Islands extend from Bali eastward to the Timor. The Mollucas lie between Sulawesi and New Guinea. The western part of New Guinea is called Irian Jaya, an Indonesian territory. Compared to the other regions, Irian Jaya is the most thinly populated.
