Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world. It consists of five major islands and about 30 smaller groups. The islands are located at a crossroads between two oceans, the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and straddles two continents, Asia and Australia/Oceania. Its strategic location in maritime Southeast Asia has always shaped the cultural, social, political and economic life of the country, which only gained independence from the Netherlands in 1949.

Influenced for centuries by Indian culture, which brought Hinduism and Buddhism, the archipelago gradually adopted Islam between the 13th and 16th centuries.
The Dutch began colonizing Indonesia in the early 17th century; Imperial Japan occupied the islands from 1942 to 1945.
Indonesia declared independence shortly before Japan surrendered to Allied forces. Still, it took four years of sometimes brutal fighting, interrupted negotiations and UN mediation before the Netherlands agreed to transfer sovereignty in 1949.
