By almost any standard, Malaysia has become one of the most prosperous and successful nations in the Islamic world. The Malaysian economy has grown steadily, thanks to a focus on new technology and manufacturing. Although Malaysia's government is not fully democratic, it permits an increasing degree of public participation.
