Brunei is one of the richest nations in the world. And it is all thanks to oil. In 1929, oil was discovered in Seria, forever changing the fortune of Brunei. At the time, the country had been under British rule for half a century.
Nowadays, Brunei is the fifth-leading oil producer in Southeast Asia, behind Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand.
Thanks to the oil wealth and riches, the Sultan of Brunei can live a lavish life. This documentary takes a look at the luxurious lifestyle of the royal family of Brunei.
Royal institution in Brunei dates back to the 14th century. The Sultan acts as the monarchial head of the state and head of government. Since independence from the British in 1984, only one Sultan has reigned.
Speaking of his luxury, the car collection of the Sultan of Brunei is the largest private car collection in the world. It consists of more than 7,000 vehicles with an estimated combined value of more than $5 billion.
