Measured in GDP per capita, Brunei is one of the richest
countries in the world, a welfare state which, because of
its close contacts with the oil company Shell, is sometimes
jokingly called a "Shellfarestate". There is no personal
income tax and the state provides well-developed systems for
social insurance, health care and education. Visit AbbreviationFinder to see the definitions of BRN and acronym for Brunei.
