About:

The earliest inhabitants of the present day Malaysia are Orang Asli of the Peninsula, Penan of Sarawak and Rungus of Sabah whose presence goes back approximately 5000 years. The Orang Asli, the Malays, and the indigenous peoples of Sabah and Sarawak are collectively called Bumiputeras – "Sons of the Soil”.

Malaysia comprises the Malay Peninsula and the States of Sabah and Sarawak on the Island of Kalimantan (Borneo). Peninsular Malaysia lies to the south of Thailand and covers an area of 130,000 sq.kms., while Sabah and Sarawak, totalling about 199,000 sq.kms. lie on the northern and north-western part of the Island of Kalimantan. Wedged in between the eastern Malaysian States is the oil-rich Kingdom of Brunei, formerly a British protectorate and independent since 1984. Singapore, south of Peninsular Malaysia, which formed part of Malaysia from 1963, was removed from the Malaysian Federation and became an independent nation in 1965. Malaysia lies entirely in the equatorial zone between latitudes 1-7 North and longitude 100-119 East. The climate is characterized by high humidity, uniformly warm temperature and rainfall. Malaysia is subject to maritime influence and interplay of wind system which originate in the Indian Ocean the South China Sea, and experiences both the south-west and north-east monsoons.

Malaysia has a unique system of constitutional monarchy giving each of the nine State Rulers a chance to be King for five years in rotation. The Government is based on parliamentary democracy.
