10 Unbelievable laws that exist today in Singapore.
Singapore is a small country in Southeast Asia. Formerly a British colony, the country was granted independence in 1963, and since then has become one of the most prosperous nations in the world. Though there was much trouble and turmoil in the early years, being that Singapore is without many natural resources, fierce industrialism and external trading turned a blip on the radar into a global business hub and technology powerhouse. Singapore now boasts one of the highest GDP’s in the world, one of the highest developmental standings, and one of the freest economies. Not only that, Singapore’s residents claim one of the highest qualities of life of any country, and this is confirmed by their lifespan, healthcare, and education. What makes this more impressive is that Singapore has carved a status as a first world nation in a predominantly third world region. Despite this success, or because of this success, Singapore is a little backwards on the human rights front, and have some oppressive, barbaric, and just plain strange laws. As you will see from the video, no country’s perfect.
