Nose reconstruction in subcontinent or somewhere further east (9)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'somewhere further east' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both locations as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe there's an association between them I don't understand?
'nose reconstruction in subcontinent' is the wordplay.
'reconstruction' indicates anagramming the letters (I've seen 'reconstructions' mean this).
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'subcontinent' becomes 'india' (I've seen this before).
'nose' with letters rearranged gives 'ones'.
'ones' inserted within 'india' is 'INDONESIA'.
'or' is the link.
(Other definitions for indonesia that I've seen before include "I said none (anag) - country", "Its capital is Jakarta", "part of Asia", "SE Asian country", "somewhere in Asia", "State", "Muslim republic", "An ionised country of South East Asia", "Asian country, capital Jakarta" and "Asian republic".)
