Brunei, a 400,000-strong British colony on the northwest coast of Borneo, is an absolute monarchy (sultanate). In Brunei, which is ruled by the 68-year-old sultan, he is both the head of state and the head of government, and the minister of national defense, and the minister of finance.

Members of the royal family have often been criticized for being too extravagant in their lifestyle. The Telegraph recalled that in 1996, Michael Jackson was supposed to receive £10 million for a concert in honor of the 50th birthday of the Sultan. However, dissatisfaction with the state system in the country is small, which is a consequence of the high standard of living of its citizens, as well as free education and healthcare.
