Indonesia is home to rainforests, terraced rice paddies, vast coral reefs, large urban areas, and a ring of active volcanoes that make up its more than 18,000 islands – about 6,000 of which are inhabited.
More than 720 languages are spoken by its various indigenous tribes. The country is a former Dutch colony and ranks fourth-largest in population (right behind the US), and is the largest Muslim-dominated nation in the world; evangelical Christians make up less than 6% of the population.
