Indonesia shares land boundaries with East Timor, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea. Other near countries comprises of Australia, Philippines, Singapore, and the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Fossils and the remains of tools display that the Indonesian archipelago was populated by Homo erectus, prevalently recognized as the "Java Man", between 1.5 million years ago and as lately as 35,000 years ago.

Indonesia's home motto, "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" ("Unity in Diversity" literally, "many, yet one"), enunciates the mixture that forms the country. Even with its large population and tightly populated regions, Indonesia has massive expanses of wilderness that support the world's second highest level of biodiversity. The country has plentiful natural resources, yet scarceness remains common.
