Malaysia (pronounced Listeni /məˈlʒə/ mə-LAY-zhə or Listeni /məˈlziə/ mə-LAY-zee-ə) is a federal constitutional monarchy in Southeast Asia. It consists of thirteen states and three federal territories and has a total landmass of 329,847 square kilometres (127,350 sq mi).[2][8] The country is separated by the South China Sea into two regions, Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo (also known as West and East Malaysia respectively).[2] Malaysia shares land borders with Thailand, Indonesia, and Brunei, and has maritime boundaries with Singapore, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
