This image depicts a map of Singapore.

Singapore is an island city-state which is located off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula.  It has been self-governing since 1959.

Singapore began its “modern life” when Sir Stamford Raffles decided (in 1819) that it would be an ideal trading post for the British East-Indian-Company. 

Today it is highly urbanized and is one of the world’s leading financial centers.  It is also a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.
