Selamat Pagi! (That's good morning in Indonesian.) My name is Jeremy and this is my fifth report on a country. This report is, as you all should know, on Indonesia Asia's largest Muslim or Islamic nation. Indonesian economy is based on tourism. The language is based on Malay. Indonesia has 203,459,256 (2001est) people. Indonesia's national anthem is called "Indonesia Raya"
Sadly, Indonesia has had a terrorist attack at the Sari Club and Pattes Bar in Bali triggering a large tourism fall, which basically ruins Bali. 204 people died including 84 Australians.

My country is Indonesia. Its flag is red and white. Red means the Heroes' blood and white means holy. Heroes are very important in Indonesia, because in 1945 many heroes went to war to get their countries freedom. (Added by Rosa)
