Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago. Due to the country's huge size it contains a high degree of diversity in terms of religion and traditional belief systems. Although Indonesia has a Muslim-majority population, it is a secular democracy with a constitution that guarantees all Indonesian citizens the freedom of worship, each according to his or her own religion or belief (this system does not function perfectly in reality, however). Still, it means that Indonesia contains many (mostly religion-inspired) public holidays on which the nation's financial markets are closed.
