I’m Adelia and I’ll talk about Brunei. Brunei is a small country on the north boundary of East Malaysia. It is located on Borneo Island. Like Malay people, most of them are Muslims. Their national anthem is “Allah Peliharakan Sultan.” Their government system is Sultanate. Brunei's leader is Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah. The official name of Brunei is Negara Brunei Darussalam or . Brunei's motto is "Selalu menuruti arahan Tuhan," which in English is "Always in service with God's guidance."

Fun Facts:

1. Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is one of the richest royals in the world.

2. Brunei owns a lot of oil.

3. Brunei was established on January 1, 1984. That is not long ago!

4. The name “Brunei” comes from when the Malay people first arrived at the Brunei River. They said, "Baru Nah," which means this land is very beautiful. Over a long period of time "Baru Nah" eventually became "Brunei".
