Tiny Country, Big Impact
Brunei is a small, tropical country with a tiny population---just 400,000 residents. But small doesn't mean insignificant. Brunei has one of the highest standards of living of anywhere in the world, the country is quite wealthy due to a booming oil and gas industry. Over 40% of the population of Brunei is made up of expatriates, some who are on short-term work assignments, and others who were drawn to it because of the prospect of tax-free income.
Most expatriates in Brunei live in large, detached single-family houses, which are the most typical style of housing in Brunei. Apartments and condominiums are limited and not very common.
Bruneians don’t point using their index fingers; this is considered impolite. They point with their thumbs instead.
Education is free to the citizens of Brunei, and expatriates can send their children to state schools for a (usually small) fee. Most people choose to send their children to private or international schools, which provide a more rounded education and go all the way up to the university level.
