Indonesia is a country in Southeast Asia.

Indonesia is a major exporter of Liquified Natural Gas to other Asian countries. It is also a major producer of oil, and it used to be a member of OPEC. However, a combination of declining production, and increasing consumption caused Indonesia to become a net importer of oil, so it withdrew from OPEC in May, 2008.

Indonesia is little known to the average American, although it is one of the four largest nations in the world and the largest nation with a majority Muslim population. Its rich natural resources give it additional salience in the modern world.
