Malaysia & Brunei
The two Southeast Asian nations are neighbors, and both predominantly Muslim. But that's where their similarities end. Malaysia is a democracy with all its benefits and drawbacks — an emerging economy and multicultural society, with popular beaches and skyscrapers, but rampant corruption. Brunei is one of the world's richest nations, endowed with oil reserves, but it's also an autocracy with a prince best known for his flashy cars.
