The Republic of Singapore is made up of the main island and some 54 islets. The focus of living and activity is on Singapore Island itself, which has a total land area of approximately 650km². The island measures about 42km from east to west and about 23km from north to south.
This island is very densely urbanised, but its luxuriant vegetation throughout the city has given Singapore its name, the city of gardens. The equatorial climate, uniformly warm and stormy all year round ensures the abundance of greenery.
Singapore is known all over the world and often referenced for its extraordinary economic success. Since its independence in 1965, Singapore has become one of the most prosperous and developed countries of the world, despite the very few natural resources and challenges of a multi-ethnical society.
