Brunei at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Independent sultanate, NE Borneo. The country is divided into two parts, each surrounded by the Malaysian state of Sarawak; they both have coastlines on the S. China Sea and Brunei Bay. Area: 2,226 sq mi (5,765 sq km). Population (1997 est.): 308,000. Capital: Bandar Seri Begawan. Brunei has a mixture of S.E. Asian ethnic groups: about two-thirds is Malay, one-fifth Chinese, and the remainder indigenous peoples and Indians. Languages: Malay (official); English is widely understood. Religions: Islam (official), Buddhism, Christianity, and animism. Currency: Brunei dollar or ringgit. The narrow N coastal plain gives way to rugged hills in the south. Brunei's W enclave consists of the valleys of the Belait, Tutong, and Brunei rivers; it is mainly hilly, rising more than 1,640 ft (500 m). The E enclave contains the Pandaruan and Temburong river basins, and the country's highest point, Pagan Peak (6,070 ft, or 1,850 m). Much of Brunei is covered by dense tropical rain forest; very little land is arable. Its economy is dominated by production from major oil and natural-gas fields. It has one of the highest per-capita incomes in Asia. It is a monarchy; the head of state and government is the sultan. Brunei traded with China in the 6th cent. AD Through allegiance to the Javanese Majapahit kingdom (13th-15th cent.), it came under Hindu influence. In the early 15th cent., with the decline of the Majapahit kingdom, many converted to Islam, and Brunei became an independent sultanate. When F. Magellan's ships visited in 1521, the sultan of Brunei controlled almost all of Borneo and its neighboring islands. In the late 16th cent., Brunei lost power because of the Portuguese and Dutch activities in the region; they were soon joined by the British. By the 19th cent., the sultanate of Brunei included Sarawak, present-day Brunei, and part of N. Borneo (now part of Sabah). In 1841 a revolt took place against the sultan, and a British soldier, James Brooke, helped put it down; he was later proclaimed governor (see Brooke Raj). In 1847 the sultanate entered into a treaty with Great Britain, and by 1906 had yielded all administration to a British Resident. Brunei rejected membership in the federation of Malaysia in 1963, negotiated a new treaty with Britain in 1979, and achieved independence in 1984, with membership in the Commonwealth. Today Brunei is considering ways to diversify the economy and to encourage tourism.

the commission of an offense, whether as principal or
accessory. Thus in treason, there are no abettors or
accessories, but all are held to be principals or
accomplices.Abet \A*bet"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Abetted}; p. pr. & vb. n.
