Brunei is a country of independent Islamic sultanate on the northern coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. It became a British protectorate in 1888, and in 1906 administration was vested in a British resident. Despite the presence of a foreign administration, Brunei’s significance began to revive with the start of petroleum production in 1929. In 1941–45, during World War II, Brunei was occupied by the Japanese. The British returned after the war, and negotiations began for the eventual independence of Brunei.
