Singapore is also known as the Lion City and was founded in 1819 when Sir Stamford Raffles fearing Dutch expansionism argued for a larger British presence. Since then, Singapore's fortunes started swinging and it flourished as a trading British colony. After moving towards independent rule, Singapore has emerged as one of the dynamic and robust economies in Southeast Asia. Today, Singapore is the financial and technological hub of Southeast Asia. It has one of the world's busiest ports in terms of tonnage handled.

Singapore is one of the densely populated cities in the world, with about 6,430 people per square kilometer. The demographic profile of Singapore is a mix of Malays, Chinese and Indians. Singapore has four official languages- Mandarin, Tamil, Malay and English.
