This tiny oil-rich Islamic kingdom lying on northwest Borneo is known for the astounding wealth of its Sultan, its tax-free, subsidised society, and the fact its population enjoy one of the highest per capita incomes on earth. Despite ornate modern public buildings in the capital, most of the country remains undeveloped and untouched by the outside world. Alcohol is virtually unobtainable, there's little nightlife, and the political culture encourages quiet acquiescence to the edicts of the sultan.
