Today is August 17, 2018, the Republic of Indonesia is even the last 73 years of independence. Age is so young for a country, especially a country in Asia, especially in Southeast Asia.
For example, such as India and Pakistan in 1947, Kuwait 1961, Qatar 1971, Malaysia in 1957, Myanmar 1948, Singapore 1965, and several other countries.
