"NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- When it comes to emerging market investing, BRIC nations -- Brazil, Russia, India and China -- dominate the headlines.

They're big, important countries. And together, they make up about half of the iShares MSCI Emerging Market Index(EEM_), one of the most popular exchange traded funds.

But what about the 17 other countries in the fund?

For some time now, I've been monitoring a country that's off the radar screens of even the most sophisticated investors, one that represents a bigger prize than the BRIC nations.

Emerging Market Investing -- Consider These Statistics: See if you can guess which emerging market investment I'm talking about. Take a look at these statistics.

1. It's a member of the global economic leaders club -- better known as the G-20.

2. With 240 million people, it boasts the world's fourth-largest population.

3. Its land mass is three times the size of Texas.

4. Its 10-year government bond interest rate is less than Spain's.

5. And, most importantly, it was the best-performing stock market in 2009 and continues to chug forward in 2010.

The answer is: Indonesia. "
