free houses

In Brunei all destitute citizens are given free houses by the Sultan. Every citizen or permanent resident is paid a pension of $200/month from age 60. Medical, education and a host of other expenses are non existent. Petrol prices have been pegged at a dollar a gallon for 25 years. Today it is 53 cents/litre for Super Shell. Gas is supplied free of charge to many houses for cooking. In the Jerudong jungle a mini Disney Land was built. All the rides were free of charge for the first 10 years. The best news is kept until last : No body has been asked to pay any income tax during the last 60 years!
