How many islands has Indonesia?

Well, the answer to this question is 17 508!!! However only about 6000 of them are inhabited and the majority of the population lives in the greatest five islands (Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Irian Jaya and Java).

No doubt that Indonesia is the country with the greatest number of islands world.

For the record, there are also 583 languages and dialects spoken in the archipelago!!!
Crazy numbers aren't they?
