About Brunei

Brunei is a pint-sized oil-rich sultanate with a population of 450,000 as of 2016. This wealth generated oil has generated great wealth for the Sultan and some of the local people, and the best evidence of this is seen in the palaces and mosques. However you'll also see many people (for example in the water village) still living a subsistence life, with no tap water or sewerage system.
