  Negara Brunei Darussalam , more commonly referred to as the Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam or simply Brunei Darussalam, is a country located on the island of Borneo, in southeast Asia. Apart from its coastline with the South China Sea, it is completely surrounded by East Malaysia. The Petroleum and gas-rich Brunei Darussalam is a member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the (British) Commonwealth of Nations.

Main article: History of Brunei Darussalam
The Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam was very powerful from the 14th through the 16th century. Its realm covered the southern Philippines, Sarawak and Sabah. European influence gradually brought an end to this regional power. Later, there was a brief war with Spain in which Brunei Darussalam was victorious. The 19th century however saw Brunei Darussalam losing much of its territory to the White Rajahs of Sarawak.

There was a small rebellion against the monarchy during the 1960s, which was prevented by the United Kingdom. This event became known as the Brunei Darussalam Revolt and was partly responsible for the failure to create the North Borneo Federation. The rebellion also affected Brunei Darussalam's decision to opt out of the Malaysian Federation. Brunei Darussalam was a British protectorate from 1888 to 1984.

Main article: Geography of Brunei Darussalam
Brunei Darussalam consists of two unconnected parts; 97% of the population lives in the larger western part, only about 10,000 live in the mountainous eastern part, the district of Temburong. Major towns are the capital Bandar Seri Begawan (about 46,000 inhabitants), the port town Muara and the oil producing districts of Seria and Kuala Belait.

The climate in Brunei Darussalam is equatorial-tropical, with high temperatures, a high humidity and heavy rainfall.

Main article: Economy of Brunei Darussalam
This small, wealthy economy is a mixture of foreign and domestic entrepreneurship, government regulation, welfare measures, and village tradition. Crude oil and natural gas production account for nearly half of GDP. Substantial income from overseas investment supplements income from domestic production. The government provides for all medical services and subsidizes rice and housing. Brunei Darussalam's leaders are concerned that steadily increased integration in the world economy will undermine internal social cohesion although it became a more prominent player by serving as chairman for the 2000 APEC (Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation) forum. Stated plans for the future include upgrading the labor force, reducing unemployment, strengthening the banking and tourist sectors, and, in general, further widening the economic base.

Main article: Demographics of Brunei Darussalam
About two-thirds of the Brunei Darussalam population are of Malay origin. The most important ethnic minority group are the Chinese, with about 15%. These groups also reflect the most important languages: Malay, which is the official language, and Chinese. English is also widely spoken and there is a relatively large expatriate community.

Islam is the official religion of Brunei Darussalam, and the sultan is the head of the religion in the country. Other faiths practised are Buddhism (mainly by the Chinese), Christianity and very small communities still practice indigenous religions.


The Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam's heyday occurred between the 15th and 17th centuries, when its control extended over coastal areas of northwest Borneo and the southern Philippines. Brunei Darussalam subsequently entered a period of decline brought on by internal strife over royal succession, colonial expansion of European powers, and piracy. In 1888, Brunei Darussalam became a British protectorate; independence was achieved in 1984. Brunei Darussalam benefits from extensive petroleum and natural gas fields, the source of one of the highest per capita GDPs in the less developed countries. The same family has ruled Brunei Darussalam for over six centuries.
