What is Brunei?

Brunei, officially the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace, also Brunei Darussalam. Located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia, surrounded by the Malaysian state of Sarawak, Brunei is the only sovereign state entirely on Borneo – the island divided between Malaysia and Indonesia.

As of 2020, Brunei’s population was 460,345, of whom about 100,000 live in the capital and largest city, Bandar Seri Begawan. The government is an absolute monarchy ruled by its Sultan, and implements a combination of English common law and sharia law, as well as general Islamic practices.

Classified as a developed country today, Brunei gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1984. Growing its wealth from extensive petroleum and natural gas fields, Brunei increased 56% GDP from 1999 to 2008, transforming it into an industrialized country.
