  Singapore

  Singapore is a small, flat, marshy island that has been developed to become the most important port and business center in Southeast Asia and one of the ten wealthiest countries in the world in terms of gross national product per capita.

  Singapore has a population of 3. 5 million people and a high density of more than 500 people per square kilometer. The superior infrastructure — especially the excellent port and international airport — has made Singapore the import and transshipment center for the region. It is one of the world’s largest oil refining centers, where crude oil is unloaded and refined before shipment to the rest of Asia . These functions are complemented by a large variety of maritime service activities, including banking, insurance, communications, and consulting.

  Singapore has diversified its service sector to include a wider range of financial, communications, and management activities and has attracted the regional headquarters of many multinational corporations. And tourism has also become a significant industry. This diversification, as well as high consumption levels in the domestic market, allowed Singapore to cope with the 1983 oil crisis and 1997 Asian financial crisis somewhat more easily than did other countries in the region.

  Singapore has a population of diverse ethnicity and religion, but it is dominated ( 77 percent) by overseas Chinese, descendants of immigrants who moved to Singapore in the colonial period and followed the religions of Buddhism and Taoism. Other groups include Malays ( about 15 percent) and Indians ( about 7 percent, mainly Hindu) . Fertility rates are low in Singapore, and the government has tried to promote more births among the highly educated in order to reduce labor shortages and ensure a workforce to support the older population. Colonial Singapore was residentially segregated, with the British living next to the government buildings on the east shore of the Singapore River, Chinatown on the west riverbank, and Indian and Malay neighborhoods farther toward the east. There are remnants of this structure in contemporary Singapore, but the city is now characterized by dozens of tall office buildings, housing complexes, new towns and new industrial parks.

  The government has made serious attempts to foster harmony between ethnic groups and to create a sense of national identity by designating four official languages ( Mandarin 064 Chinese, English, Malay, and Indian Tamil) . They promote an Asian identity through schools and national military service that emphasize hard work, community consensus, and respect for authority. They also enforce Singapore’s image of a clean and crime-free environment through very strict rules against litter and graffiti, media censorship, and licensing of satellite dishes and street entertainers.
