Indonesia, All Areas
Overview

Indonesia, All AreasIndonesia is in South Eastern Asia, archipelago between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. The climate is tropical, hot and humid, but more moderate in highlands.

The official language is Bahasa Indonesia. English is also spoken by the educated elite and large numbers of the middle classes in the major cities with varying degrees of fluency. A few members of the older generation speak Dutch. The main religion is Islam.

The economy of Indonesia is the largest economy in Southeast Asia, is one of the emerging market economies of the world, and is also a member of G-20 major economies. It has a market-based economy in which the government plays a significant role by owning more than 164 state-owned enterprises and administers prices on several basic goods, including fuel, rice, and electricity.

Most Indonesians, especially Javanese, tend to avoid confrontation. As a result, it is considered impolite to contradict other people, especially guests. They may therefore avoid saying 'no' when in fact they mean "no". Expatriate business dress is relatively casual because of the climate. Expatriates should however dress conservatively.

The security risk for expatriates in Indonesia varies considerably across the country, but is generally medium, however Maluku, Aceh, Papua, and West Papua carry a higher risk. Risks include violent and non-violent crime, risks associated with protest action, and terrorism. Other risks include natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding and volcanic eruptions.

The currency of Indonesia is the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR).

Medical facilities are not generally comparable to those of Western Europe and North America, especially in rural areas. In major cities private medical care is available, but it is expensive. Rabies is present. Dengue fever occurs. Widespread forest fires can cause smoke haze resulting in poor air quality that may have an impact on public health.

The population of Indonesia is 261.1 Million (2018 est.), while the inflation rate (CPI) is 2.88% for Indonesia as at September 2018.

Xpatulator Hypothetical Tax for Indonesia is based on the current personal income tax rates which are progressive up to 30%.
