The following outline is provided as an overview and topical guide to Singapore:

Singapore – a sovereign republic comprising the main island of Singapore and smaller outlying islands which are located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula in Southeast Asia.[1] Singapore lies 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the equator, south of the Malaysian state of Johor and north of Indonesia's Riau Islands and is in-between the Straits of Malacca and the South China Sea.

Singapore is one of the three true city-states in the world, along with Monaco and the Vatican City, and is the only one with full self-governance, its own currency, and a significant military force. It is the second smallest nation in Asia by land area, ahead of Maldives and similar to Bahrain.
