Singapore is a city state located in Southeast Asia, off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. It comprises 63 islands, including the main island, Singapore Island, which is by far the largest, and Tekong Island, the next biggest. Singapore is bordered to the north, east and west by Malaysia and by the Singapore Strait to the south, which links the Andaman Sea and the South China Sea.
The terrain in Singapore is low and flat, with the highest natural point reaching 166 m (545 ft). Urbanisation has eliminated most of the original land features, but 5% of the land is set aside for nature reserves.
Singapore has a total land area of 710 sq km (274 sq miles) and had a population of 15.18 million in 2011. 63% of the population were citizens, while the other 37% were foreign workers or permanent residents. The main ethnic groups are Chinese 74%, Malay 13%, Indian 9% and Eurasians 3%. The capital city is Singapore.
