Indonesia is home to the shortest people on average
Every country has tall and short people. However, in some places, the median height is higher than in others. There are many reasons why nations have taller or shorter populations on average. One is their genetic heritage.
Some people, such as those from Bolivia, tend to be shorter, averaging 5 feet 2.4 inches. Others, like the Dutch, are often over 6 feet. The country with the shortest people in the world is Indonesia, where the median height is 5 feet 1.8 inches.
