Brunei Geography and HistoryEdit

Brunei is a country located on the north coast of the island of Borneo, in Southeast Asia. Apart from its coastline with the South China Sea it is completely surrounded by the state of Sarawak, Malaysia, and in fact it is separated into two parts by Limbang, which is part of Sarawak. Brunei can trace its beginnings to the 7th century when it was a subject state of the Srivijayan Empire under the name Po-ni. It later became a vassal state of Majapahit before embracing Islam in the 15th century AD.
