Its 161 km coastline faces the South China Sea. On the land side, it is enclosed by the Malaysian state of Sarawak, which divides it in two.

The districts of Brunei–Muara, Tutong and Belait make up the larger, western part of the country; Temburong district the east.

Bandar Seri Begawan (capital, pop. 76,200 in 2009, comprising Kampong Ayer 42,500), Kuala Belait (28,400), Seria (28,300), Tutong (21,500), Muara and Bangar.
Transport:

The country has 3,030 km of roads, 81 per cent paved. The main deep-water port is at Muara, with a dedicated container terminal. The Brunei, Belait and Tutong rivers provide an important means of transport.

Climate:

Tropical, with high humidity and heavy rainfall. There is no distinct wet season; the wettest months are January and November. Much of the rain falls in sudden thundery showers.
Environment:

The most significant environmental issue is seasonal smoke/haze resulting from forest fires in Indonesia.
Vegetation:

Mangrove swamps lie along the coast, and forest covers 72 per cent of the land area, a large part of this being primary forest, dense in places and of great genetic diversity. There are 15 forest reserves, covering about 40 per cent of the total land area. The government plans to increase the area of the forest reserves. Around 15 per cent of the land area is cultivated.

ABOUT BRUNEI DARUSSALAM

Brunei Darussalam, meaning ‘The Abode of Peace’, is a country that many may know as an oil-rich sultanate on the third largest island in the world, but Brunei Darussalam is much more than that. Brunei Darussalam is located on the northern shore of Borneo island, bordered by the South China Sea and the Malaysian state of Sarawak. Geographically, Brunei Darussalam is comprised of two parts, with a total area of 5,765 sq km. It is divided into 4 districts, and the capital city is Bandar Seri Begawan.

Brunei has a tropical climate with temperatures ranging year-round from between 25 to 32 degrees Celsius. The population of Brunei Darussalam stands at about 400,000 – 67% Malay, 15% Chinese, 6% tribes indigenous to Borneo including the Iban, Dusun and Murut tribes, and 12% other. The national language is Malay (Bahasa Melayu) but English is widely spoken and is the principal language of business.

The majority of the population is concentrated in and around the capital city in the Brunei Muara district, which houses government institutions and the economic sectors of the country which are not oil and gas related. The Belait district lies in the northwest, and is the hub of the country’s oil and gas activity, which is Brunei’s primary source of wealth. Brunei Darussalam is a country emerging on the world scene with exciting economic potential and unique and treasured resources, political stability, a highly educated population, and an enviable reserve of life-sustaining primary rainforest filled with rare indigenous life forms that scientists are scrutinising for their possible contribution to the world.

The current ruler of Brunei Darussalam, His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, is the 29th sultan in a line of royal genealogy that dates back to the 14th century. His Majesty belongs to one of the oldest continuously ruling dynasties in the world. In the 14th century, Brunei ruled much of Borneo, including Sabah and Sarawak, in an empire that stretched to the lower areas of the Philippines. The empire nourished with trade networks linking China, India, Java, Malacca, the Middle East, Spain and Portugal. This was all changed in the 17th and 18th century after a wave of internal battles, rebellion and a surge of dominating colonial influences.

Brunei’s economic power went into decline and her territories were subsequently lost in a series of agreements and treaties made in the 19th century. Since the discovery of oil in 1929, however, petrodollars have revived the Bruneian economy and ushered in an era of significant development. The standard of living and quality of life has been significantly raised, and benefits like free health care, education, housing, no income tax and one of the highest per capita incomes in the world all point towards the extent of progress in Brunei.

Despite this swift development, Brunei has managed to successfully reconcile its firmly upheld centuries-old traditions and culture with the spirit of progressiveness and modernity. While the oil and gas industry remains the backbone of the economy, a wave of diversification is rolling in to ensure that the landscape of the economy remains geared for long-term sustainability.
