Brunei Darussalam

Brunei Darulssalam is a small yet prosperous country situated on the island of Borneo and flanked by the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak. This oil-rich land is known primarily for the astounding wealth of its Sultan and its inhabitants, where the citizens live a tax-free, heavily-subsidised existence.

Brunei is a land steeped in culture and traditions – and the Bruneians are quite proud of that fact, too. Brunei embraces Brunei Darussalam2the Old Malay World culture, of which practices can still seen in the country today.

Many cultural and linguistic differences make Brunei Malays distinct from the larger Malay populations in nearby Malaysia and Indonesia, even though they are ethnically related and share the Muslim religion. Brunei has hereditary nobility, carrying the title Pengiran.
