East Timor is a country in Southeast Asia. It comprises the eastern half of the island of Timor, the nearby islands of Atauro and Jaco, and Oecusse, anexclave on the northwestern side of the island, within Indonesian West Timor. East Timor has a lower-middle-income economy. About 37.4% of the country’s population lives below the international poverty line which means living on less than U.S. $1.25 per day and about half or 50% of the population is illiterate.
