Geography of Brunei

Where is the country of Brunei located on world map? According to COUNTRYAAH.COM, Brunei is an independent nation located in Southeastern Asia. Brunei gained independence from Britain on January 1, 1984. The process of decolonization began in the early 1960s when Brunei’s Sultan, Hassanal Bolkiah, negotiated independence with the British government. Sultan Hassanal had been a leader of the independence movement since the 1950s and was determined to see his country become independent. The negotiations were successful and Brunei became an independent nation on January 1, 1984. Since its independence, Brunei has achieved impressive economic growth and is now considered one of Asia’s most stable countries. It has also implemented free elections and a multi-party system of government that allows citizens to exercise their right to vote for their representatives in parliament. See historyaah for Brunei history.
