Indonesia: World's Most Populous Muslim Country and Biggest Archipelago

Sophisticated kingdoms ruled Indonesia before the Dutch colonized it in the early 17th century and ruled over it for two centuries. Later on the islands were occupied by Japan from 1942 to 1945, when it won its freedom. Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago and home to the world's largest Muslim population. In 1965 long-term leader General Suharto came to power and imposed authoritarian rule in the country. And also permitted technocrats to run the economy. Involvement of Army in executing government policies and programs have given birth to large-scale corruption in Indonesia. This mass corruption and citizen harassment by Armed forces ousted General Suharto from power in 1998. In the post Suharto era Indonesia brought major changes in its constitution and in the power structure. The first direct presidential elections were held in 2004.
