The Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace (as per its official name), is a small country in Borneo. Having gained its independence from Britain in 1984, it is now an absolute monarchy that is second only to Singapore in economic development in its region (Southeast Asia), mostly because of its petroleum exports.

The country's mukims (second-level administrative divisions) are used as territories, with the exception of the seven capital mukims which were too small to include. Instead they've been combined with Mukim Kianggeh.

v1.1: Reduced all bonus incomes by 1.

Can see some potential, but highly dependant on map settings.

Played with 4 starting territories and 5 base income; no wastelands and 4 players: because of the 4 army neutrals on every tile, edge starts are very powerful, especially North Belait (4t/+3) as it only borders 3 territories compared to North Brunei Muara (4t/+3) which borders 5, or south brunei Muara (3/+2) bordering 6; the bonuses don't correspond to the difficulty in defending them, and given the small map size any bonus held will snowball quickly

Thanks for the evaluation! After playing around with it some more, I reduced all bonus values by one, to reduce the snowballing effect of capturing any single bonus. I contemplated reducing North Belait's income further, but that would leave it with just 1, which seemed too low for 4 territories, even if they are a bit (not overpoweringly so) more defensible than others.

Would be cool if this was a map of Europe instead
