Spread across two regions of land, separated by the South China Sea, Malaysia shares borders with Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei. Malaysia is a federal constitutional monarchy. Alongside a parliament, the monarch is also elected for a five year term, with candidates chosen from one of nine hereditary monarchies who rule some of the constituent States. Freedom of speech and political activities are tightly controlled in Malaysia, with frequent abuses by security services, arbitrary detention and the imposition of strict laws on sexual activities.
