Putri Raemawasti, the Miss Universe 2008 from Indonesia, is from East Java
Indonesia officially does not allow beauty pageants, declaring that swimsuits and exploitation of women are sinful and un-Islamic. However, the Miss Universe organization has been sending candidates to the contest without getting into trouble with the law.
