[Comment] Offline: Indonesia—unravelling the mystery of a nation

Size isn’t everything. But population does make some contribution to a nation’s presence, even its influence, in the world. China is the most populous country on our planet today, with 1·36 billion people (according to World Bank figures) making an increasingly telling impression on our lives. India is second (1·29 billion people). The USA is third (318·9 million). Which country comes next in this demographic league table? You might guess Brazil (population 206·1 million). Or Pakistan (185·0 million).
