    Re: indeed - in fact - actually

    Do you mean as interjections or as adverbs?

    Indeed in my country there are a lot of stupid people. adverb emphasizing a point= There are certainly a lot of stupid people in my country

    Does that right ? [Are these right?]

    Additionally:
    Emphasis:

    A: Was your grandfather religious?

    B: In fact, my grandfather was a priest.


    Contradiction:

    A: Do you understand me?

    B: Actually,I can't understand you.


    Emphatic agreement:

    A: There sure are a lot of stupid people in your country.

    B: Indeed! There are a lot of stupid people in my country.
    (The last conversation seems quite unlikely, but it does help me make my point.)
