Brunei, officially the State of Brunei Darussalam or the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace (Malay: Negara Brunei Darussalam, Jawi: بروني دارالسلام), 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 is an enclave inside another country which is itself discontiguous (Malaysia, being split in two by the South China Sea).

Brunei, the remnant of a very powerful sultanate,[citation needed] regained its independence from the United Kingdom on 1 January 1984 and is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.
