Malaysia is a country in South-East Asia. South of Thailand lies Peninsular Malaysia. Located across the South China Sea, the states of Sabah and Sarawak are part of the island of Borneo. The tiny country of Brunei and the Indonesian portion of the island, Kalimantan, border them. Mountains, mangrove swamps, low plains and sandy beaches feature in Malaysia 's climate. About 60% is protected by rainforest.
Since the 1970s, Malaysia, a middle-income country, has been transformed from a predominantly agricultural raw materials producer into an evolving multi-sector economy. By attracting investments in Islamic banking, high technology industries, biotechnology, and services, Malaysia is attempting to attain high-income status by 2020 and to step higher up the value-added supply chain. Exports of electronics, oil and gas, palm oil and rubber, in particular, remain the key drivers of the economy. In 2014, Malaysia hosted the Commonwealth Association for Public Administration and Management's tenth biennial conference and the fifth Commonwealth Public Service Ministers' Forum.

Destination Malaysia, a virtual guide to the country formerly known as "Malaya" in Southeast Asia.Malaysia consists of two geopolitical regions separated by the South China Sea: the Malaysian Peninsula (or West Malaysia) on the northern Malaysian Peninsula, bordered by Thailand and Singapore in the south, and the Malaysian Borneo Peninsula (or East Malaysia) on the northern part of the South China Sea island of Borneo, bordering Indonesia and including the Brunei Sultanate.The nation also shares maritime borders with Vietnam and the Philippines.
In Southeast Asia , Malaysia is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country and one of the richest and most in dustrialised nations, exceeded only by Singapore and oil-rich Brunei in terms of GNP. On 31 August 1957, the Federation of Malaya became an independent republic.
On 16 September 1963, the accession of the states of Singapore, Sabah (formerly British North Borneo) and Sarawak expanded the federation. From that date on, the name 'Malaysia' was adopted. On 9 August 1965, Singapore left the union. Malaysia is a federation of 13 nations, and a constitutional monarchy based on the British Westminster parliamentary system is the governing system of the region.
A traditional monarch of royal descent is constitutionally headed by the nine Malay States (Sultanates). The representative head of state is the monarch, who, according to the rotation principle, is elected every five years from the ranks of the rulers of the nine Sultanates. In the cabinet headed by the prime minister, who is the head of government, executive power is vested.
With the vast majority live in Peninsular Malaysia, the population of Malaysia are unevenly divided between Peninsular and East Malaysia. Huge ethnic , linguistic, cultural, and religious diversity is demonstrated by the population. A important administrative distinction is made between indigenous peoples (including Malays), collectively called bumiputra, and foreign groups (primarily Chinese and South Asians), called non-bumiputra, within this plurality.
For a long time, the Malay Peninsula and the northern coast of Borneo, both located at the junction of one of the world's largest maritime trading routes, have been a gathering spot for people from other parts of Asia. As a consequence, Malaysia's population, like that of Southeast Asia as a whole, exhibits great ethnographic complexity.
