The Republic of Mongolia (Mongolian: ᠮᠤᠩᠭᠤᠯ ᠤᠯᠤᠰ, Monggol Ulus) is a country that spans both East Asia and parts of Central Asia. It borders Russia to the north and China and the Republic of Manchuria to the south. It covers the northern part of Manchuria, and neighbors Japan to the east. Northern Manchuria was given to Mongolia as a gift by the Soviet Union, after the Mongolians helped the Soviets drive Japanese forces out of there. It was also meant to give Mongolia coastal territory, to aid its seemingly barren and landlocked original. Mongolian is the official language, and it is written in the Mongolian script - which is a unique form of writing descended from Uyghur script and is written vertically. There is also a Mongolian Cyrillic alphabet that was implemented during the Soviet era, until the government of the People's Republic of Mongolia re-introduced Classical Mongolian in 1975 and made it the official writing system, as the Soviets were not culturally repressive towards Mongolians as a result of their aid against foreign enemies of the Soviet Union. It is still used by overseas Mongols living in Russia, who often-not learn it alongside Classical Mongolian, as well as Mongolians who lived during the days of Soviet rule.
The Republic of Manchuria (Manchu: ᠮ? ᠨᠵᡠ) is a country located south of Mongolia and north of China.

The first Sultan, Ahmad I, enacted a non-violent deportation pogrom against the Chinese Singaporean population, wanting Malays to dominate the country "as they once did before". The Chinese Singaporeans, were able to keep all of their property and lots to the countries they chose to settle in. Many settled in Malaysia, Philippines and the United States. Sultan Ahmad also invited impoverished Malays and even Javanese and Sundanese from Sumatra in Indonesia, as well as the Malay Peninsula. Their descendants today, form the majority of Singapore's population. Unlike the Sultanate of Brunei, the Kingdom of Singapore is a constitional monarchy, rather than an absolute monarchy.
