The Republic of Singapore is officially an island-country located in Southeast Asia less than 100 miles north of the Equator. Consisting of one large island (called Pulua Ujong in Malaysian) and over 60 smaller islands, Singapore is a major world commercial center that claims the third-highest per capita income among all world countries. Nearly 75 percent of Singapore's population is Chinese, with Indians, Eurasians and Malays comprising the other 25 percent. Due to Singapore's quick ascent into economic prosperity, it is now identified as a "middle power" country exhibiting substantial influence in global affairs.
