Introduction

The Republic of Singapore is a city-state that is located in Southeast Asia. Near it, we can find Malay Peninsula and Indonesian Islands. There is one main island with 63 minor ones. Interestingly, in spite of being just a city-state, there is a horrendous amount of people living there, making Singapore the second most densely populated nation in the world. There are four official languages, including Malay, Tamil, Chinese, and English.

Economy

The entire GDP of Singapore is enormous, especially if we consider its small size. In 2019, it was estimated to be at around $579 billion. Though it is "only" the 10th largest in the region of East Asia and Pacific, it is still incredibly large.

The best way to illustrate the prosperity of this city-state is GDP Per Capita (PPP). It shows us the value of $101,600. This is the second largest GDP per capita in the region and the third largest in the entire world.

Population

Due to its incredibly small area of only 728 square kilometers and more than 5.7 million residents, the nation's density is the second largest, and it is around 7,800 people per square kilometer.
