Brunei Introduction

        Brunei is a small country in Southeast Asia. It lies on the north coast of the island of Borneo. The people of Brunei enjoy a high standard of living, mainly because of the country's valuable offshore petroleum deposits.

          Brunei covers 5,765 square kilometres and has a population of 299,000. Its official name is Brunei Darussalam, which means Brunei, Abode of Peace. Bandar Seri Begawan is its capital and largest city.

A Short Background

The Sultanate of Brunei's heyday occurred between the 15th and 17th centuries, when its control extended over coastal areas of northwest Borneo and the southern Philippines.

Brunei subsequently entered a period of decline brought on by internal strife over royal succession, colonial expansion of European powers, and piracy. In 1888, Brunei became a British protectorate; independence was achieved in 1984.

Brunei 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 now ruled in Brunei for over six centuries.
