As the world's fourth most populous country, Indonesia is an archipelago that lies across the equator. Due to its unique location, there is an immensely diverse environment ranging from the sea to volcanoes. Early Indonesians were animists, meaning they believed all objects had a life force or soul. These beliefs are still visible in their practices of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. On top of their rich culture, Indonesian cuisine can range from very sweet to sour ingredients and their most popular dish is nasi goreng (fried rice) topped with sweet soy sauce.
