Nusantara, a Sanskrit, then Malay, word referring to an island realm, is here adapted to become Nusantaria - denoting a slightly wider world but one with a single linguistic, cultural and trading base.

The surrounding waters have always been uniquely important as a corridor connecting East Asia to India, the Middle East, Europe and Africa." - Copac
