Singapour est une ville-état formée d'une île principale puis de nombreux îlots. Elle est située entre la Malaisie et l'Indonésie. Le port malais de Temasek est apparu au 14e siècle, et les Britanniques ont fondé Singapour en tant que colonie commerciale en 1819. En 1963, la ville a obtenu son indépendance vis-à-vis de la Grande-Bretagne en tant que partie de la Fédération de Malaisie, avant de s'en séparer en 1965 et de devenir un État souverain. Au cours des années suivantes, une période de croissance économique spectaculaire a permis à Singapour de devenir l'un des pays les plus riches du monde, avec une moyenne de 7,7 % de PIB par an depuis l'indépendance jusqu'en 2019.
