Lepakland Bolehland United States of Malaysiaball is an American kebab American state countryball who was the original lah speaking countryball before Singapore-icon.png Tringapore stole it and claimed it as his own and where everything is possible located in Southeast Asia. He cannot into safe airlines is bordered by Thailand-icon.png Thailandball and Brunei-icon.png Bruneiball to the north, and Singapore-icon.png Tringapore and Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball to the south. The country is divided into 15 13 states and 3 federal territories, which are Putrajaya-icon.png Putrajayaball, Labuan-icon.png Labuanball, and his capital Kuala Lumpur-icon.png Kuala Lumpurball, giving him a total area of 127,613 square miles (330,803 Square Kilometers), making him the 66th largest country in the world. As end of 2020, he maintains a population of about 33.10 million inhabitants of various religions. He is the funniest countryball in the world.

Being geographically in Southeast Asia, as well as being a former Islamic British colony, gives Malaysia the ability to join ASEAN-icon.png ASEANball, the English-icon.png Commonwealth, and the OIC-icon.png OIC. Malaysia is also a major non-NATO ally, as well as a UN-icon.png UN member like every other country.

Malaysiaball (except for Sabah-icon.png Sabahball) as well asSingapore-icon.png Tringapore and Brunei-icon.png Bruneiball are safe from most natural disasters. (Thanks to Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball.)The word 'most' is used, because this year (2021) he experienced his worst flooding in half a century.

His national day (Hari Kebangsaan) is on August 31st and founding day (Hari Malaysia) on September 16th.

Malaysiaball is an expert about the land he lives in and everything in it, from poetry, music, house-making, forest navigation, smithing... you get it. Probably the most famous example of Malay blacksmithing is the legendary Keris (or Kris), a short melee weapon with a curved blade that's really tough for almost all purposes (including fashion, Malaysiaball can be spotted wearing one during cultural festivities, paired with his favourite hat headgear known as tengkolok or tanjak). He also uses his own martial art (actually shared with Indonesiaball, same thing with the aforementioned Keris), which is - wait for it - silat. Contrary to popular myth that said hat Malay weaponry is so backwards, he actually had already begun using rifles as early as the 16th century, even perfecting it to an extent never before achieved by European-made rifles. Another popular myth is that Malaysians are lazy people, which is totally wrong. In fact, many Malaysians overworked, rivalling, sometimes even beating Germans in terms of work consistency.

The strength for Malaysiaball is its ethnically & religous diverse population. Malaysiaball has three main ethnic groups, Malays, Chinese and Indians. Malaysiaball also have indigenous population called Orang Asli. Sabah-icon.png Sabahball and Sarawak-icon.png Sarawakball has even more indigenous ethnic groups while their major ethnic groups are Kadazan-Dusun and Iban respectively. Racial tensions is still a common issue since 13 May incident of 1969.

Islam-icon.png Islam (Kebab) is a state religion but other religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Chirstianity and Sikhism are freely practiced in Malaysiaball, apparently a good role-model in religious freedom. All Malays however, should be Kebabs and it is illegal for them to convert to other religions. This doesn't apply to any other ethnicity.

What people didn't know though, is that Malays were always defined by religion. For the last couple centuries, that religion was Islam. In fact, so ingrained it was in Malay culture that it's considered as part of Malay identity, and converting to other religion will strip someone of its identity as a Malay.

History

Ye wanna learn how I was created? Good. Get your nasi lemak ready and wear that time-traveling tengkolok to get back into the Middle Ages.

In 1400s, In one of it's state of Malacca-icon.png Malaccaball, became an Malacca Sultanate-icon.png empire and anchluss then Kingdom of Singapura-icon.png Kingdom of Tringapura and some parts of Sumatra in Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball. In 1511, Kingdom of Portugal-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball ruled Malacca-icon.png Malaccaball and destroyed it's empire. The fall of Malacca-icon.png Malaccaball led to the birth of Johor-icon.png Johorball and Perak-icon.png Perakball. Later the Dutch Empire-icon.png Dutch Empireball and Johor-icon.png Johorball helped to remove Portugal-icon.png Portugalball of Malacca-icon.png Malaccaball in 1641, and then Dutch Empire-icon.png Dutch Empireball give Malacca-icon.png Malaccaball to UK-icon.png UKball in 1825.

Meanwhile in the Borneo Islands, Bruneian Empire-icon.png Bruneian Empireball gave Crown Colony of North Borneo-icon.png North Borneoball to Sulu Sultanateball and the Sulus later handed over to UK-icon.png UKball, while Sarawak-icon.png Sarawakball became a kingdom as Bruneian Empire-icon.png Bruneian Empireball gave it to the Brooke family (also a Pro-British) and Labuan-icon.png Labuanball became a crown colony to the British.

Since 1771, UK-icon.png UKball started to colonize every states in Malaysia-icon.png Malayaball starting from the settlement in Penang-icon.png Penangball (then part of Kedah-icon.png Kedahball) until the fall of Pahang-icon.png Pahangball in 1863. Then of UK-icon.png UKball started to centralise Malay states which led to Malayan Union-icon.png Federated Malay Statesball and Unfederated Malay states. Also, UK-icon.png UKball built Straits Settlements-icon.png Straits Settlementball by putting Penang-icon.png Penangball, Dutch Malacca-icon.png Dutch Malaccaball, British Singapore-icon.png British Tringapore and Labuan-icon.png Labuanball.

Later in 1942, of Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanese Empireball anchluss and ruled Malaysia-icon.png Malayaball and Borneo until 1945. Then when they left, communism started to grow in the peninsular and had threatened to remove the monarchy which led to an emergency. UK-icon.png UKball returned to Malaysia-icon.png Malayaball and forced all rulers in the state to sign a birth certificate of Malayan Union-icon.png Malayan Unionball despite threats of mass removal by the Malays. Malayan Union-icon.png Malayan Unionball was born and lasted 3 years after it was forced to remove by the Malays, it was later replaced by Malaysia-icon.png Federation of Malayaball until they can into independence on August 31st, 1957.

Meanwhile in the Borneo islands, the Brooke dynasty in Malaysia-icon.png Sarawakball was dying and they promised to give independence earlier which was canceled after the Anschluss of Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanball. Crown Colony of Sarawak-icon.png Sarawakball was handed to UK-icon.png British Empireball and became of Crown Colony of Sarawak-icon.png crown colony instead. While Crown Colony of North Borneo-icon.png North Borneoball also became a Crown Colony of North Borneo-icon.png crown colony of UK-icon.png British Empireball after they easily accepted their offer.

In 1960s, independent Malaysia-icon.png Malayaball managed to remove communism, grows up and calls Crown Colony of Sarawak-icon.png Sarawakball, Crown Colony of North Borneo-icon.png North Borneoball and British Singapore-icon.png British Tringapore to become Malaysia-icon.png Malaysiaball. Crown Colony of Sarawak-icon.png Sarawakball, Crown Colony of North Borneo-icon.png North Borneoball and Singapore-icon.png Tringapore agreed to form the federation. Brunei-icon.png Bruneiball wanted to be part of Malaysia-icon.png Malaysiaball at first but was later refused over oil issues. Malaysia-icon.png Malaysiaball became of reality on 16 September, 1963. Philippines-icon.png Philippinesball and Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball are against it at first and they attacked us but Commonwealthball came and protected us, later they of accept the formation.

With the attack ended, and the growing tensions of the Cold War, Malaysiaball was strongly against communism and decides to seek protection from UK-icon.png UKball, Canada-icon.png Canadaball, Australia-icon.png Australiaball, and New Zealand-icon.png Australia's Australiaball if communism ever tries to remove him. Later, he founded the ASEAN-icon.png ASEANcoin along with his neighbors as a part to remove communism and seek monies.

Singapore-icon.png Tringapore wanted equal rights to all races after they formed Malaysiaball. Unfortunately, due to of racial politics, Malaysiaball didn't agree. This led to of racial disputes, causing racial riots in 1964. and on 9 August 1965, Tringapore was kicked out by Malaysiaball.

In 1969, racial tensions between of Malay and of Chinese were growing over control of Malaysiaball's economy. This was due to the racial side effects left by UK-icon.png UKball where he implemented a policy where one race work in just one industry. Basically, economic apartheid. The Chinese were far more rich compare to of Malay. Tensions grew even further after this issue was brought into politics. This led into a breakout of May 13 riots in which was later declared one of Malaysiaball's darkest day. With this, he decided to implement New Economic Policy and Oath of Allegiance (Rukun Negara).

In 1970, the New Economic Policy has helped Malaysiaball gain monies and racial tensions in the economy had finally eased and ensured every industry was handled by every race, not one industry was monopolized by just one race.

On February 13, 2017, two women from Vietcong and Indonmie killed the half-brother of North Korea-icon.png North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Nam with little support by the North Korean Supreme Leader. Malaysia was happy, but also become wary because of this.

On 9 May 2018, the main opposition coalition called Pakatan Harapan ("Alliance of Hope") in the Malaysian Parliament won a total of 121 seats in the new Parliament, enough to form a government. This marked a historic defeat for the ruling Baziran Nasional coalition (which its name was tarnished by corruption scandals and misallocation of government funds), which had been the governing party of Malaysia and its predecessor state, Malayaball, since the country's independence in 1957. However on 25 February 2020, Pakatan Harapan government collapsed upon Mahathir's resignation and failed Sheraton Move coup and replaced by the Perikatan Nasional.

States and Territories

Malaysiaball map

Federal Territoriesball (Wilayah Persekutuan)

  • Kuala Lumpur-icon.png Kuala Lumpurball - Home of the twin towers. Future of KL118 & the T-Rex Tun Razak Exchange. The best place to go sight-seeing a Ferrari (why do Malaysians suck at saying foreign brand names? Anyway)
  • Putrajaya-icon.png Putrajayaball - Second Capital, Home of the government and the prime ministers. Has a great man-made lake and futuristic architecture. Nice mosques too. He is a role-model and are usually twinned with Sejong-icon.png Sejongball.
  • Labuan-icon.png Labuanball - The one who takes care of Sarawakball and Sabahball, and can into cheap cigars, liquors and CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!!! MMM. Tax-free haven. Also has a cemetery dedicated for some WWII heroes.

Peninsular (Semenanjung)

  • Selangor-icon.png Selangorball - The most urbanized state. Also the most populous one, and the richest. One of his mosques has the biggest dome in the world! The coastal port of Klang is currently the country's main port. His clay can get very crowded in some places, while being completely empty on other places. Has the only major track in all of Malaysia, the Sepang Circuit, ya ever heard of it? (This is the reason why Malaysians race on the streets and install some Jahannam mods to their cars, there is not enough tracks for Malaysians to test their cars and to know more about actual good mods to install, not just some taped spoilers that allegedly produce an elephant's weight of downforce but are also vulnerable.)
  • Perak-icon.png Perakball - Gold and Silver mines goes here, in fact, he's probably named after the Malay word for poop(berak) silver(perak). His rulers are of direct Malacca Sultanate descent. He creates the innovative clay container known as labu sayong. Makes good Gongpian too. Makes good chicken rice too. His royal capital has the beautiful Ubudiah Mosque. The city of Teluk Intan (Diamond Bay), formerly known as Teluk Anson (Anson Bay), has a leaning tower called Menara Condong (literally means 'Leaning Tower' in Malay), similar to Pisa's. Pulau Pangkor is very nice, it has the ruins of a Dutch fort (remains from when the Dutch flee the island after being attacked by locals, who said Malays are weak?)
  • Penang-icon.png Penangball - Another most urbanized state, THE food capital, professional doctor, and a tourist attraction that includes a UNESCO site, beaches, a long bridge and a verdant hill. Some people actually think that learning how to drive in his clay will make you a great driver, although this is unjustified. Once part of Kedahball, he was the first Malaysian state to go under British rule, in 1786. Even today there are statues of Francis Light in his capital.
  • Malacca-icon.png Malaccaball - Used to be SPQRball version of Southeast Asia that was Anschlussed by Portuguese-icon.png Portuguese in 1511 (actually he almost totally rekt Portugis, but he got backstabbed by one of his ministers), now he still remembers his former glory. A tourist magnet. Has many relics from the ancient times such as the A'Famosa fortress and a replica of the wrecked Portuguese flagship vessel, the Flor de la Mar (The Flower of The Sea).
  • Kelantan-icon.png Kelantanball - Has a very catchy accent of Malay. Loves his animals, especially his mousedeers. He loves playing wau, a really big kite handcrafted by himself, and can take on many shapes and forms, but the most well-known (and possibly the biggest and the most striking) one is Wau Bulan (Moon), shaped like a crescent. He even wrote a song about it (eh wau bulan, eh wau bulan, eh wau bulan, teraju tiga...). Can into female leadership during the good old days. Many tribes live in his interiors. Best buds with Terengganuball. Almost everything is the same between them - both have great folk music, both have Islamic-oriented leadership, both have beautiful girls, just like Thailandball both can be hit hard by floods (though Kelantanball usually takes more pain because his heartlands are not as mountainous as Terengganuball's, but he has more tourists anyway), both use the Jawi writing system more frequently than other states, both have a quite similar accent, both have beautiful beaches, both has beautiful, mountainous countrysides (safe for that big lake Terengganu owns, oh yeah, Terengganu also hugs most of the coast), both has a history crafted from the up north, both have been under Siamese rule, both are pious kebabs, both have delicious foods, and the list goes on. But, according to legend, there is a hiccup in their relationship. see Terengganuball
  • Kedah-icon.png Kedahball - Rice, rice, and rice. As someone to draw a picture of Kedah's countryside, and they'll likely to include vast paddy fields in the foreground, maybe with a traditional Malay house, a coconut tree, or a stream, with hills in the horizon. He's known for being the 'rice bowl' of Malaysia, the rice capital of Malaysia. His rice has gone global. Another catchy accent of Malay, known as 'the Northern speak' is spoken here. He owns Langkawiball, a nice, big island and a tax-free haven. He still remembers his glorious old days, when he was a major port in Southeast Asia, with global relationships. Now he wants to build a new track, because him and the boys aren't satisfied with mountain tracks alone.
  • Terengganu-icon.png Terengganuball - I HUGGED THE EAST COAST!!! Loves the Jawi writing system. His most famous artifact is a slab of stone from the ancient times that signified his acceptance of Islam (he is the first one to do so). Yet another catchy accent of Malay is here, which is quite similar,but quite different (wat?) to Kelantan's accent. His Pasar Payang (Payang Bazaar) is still one of the most well-known bazaars in the country. Also loves his turtles, beaches and islands (he owns almost all the islands on the East Coast). Has the biggest man-made lake in ASEAN (Kenyir Lake). Legend has it that Terengganu and Kelantan once had a chicken fight over who should rule the land between their respective clays, a.k.a, Besutball. Long story short, Terengganu wins and got to keep Besut. Yes, it's not clear if this actually happened, but still, it's a good story.
  • Perlis-icon.png Perlisball - Nothing much other than it's close to Thailandball, and for being the smallest state. Amazing limestone formations and caves are found here. Speaks a slightly harder version of Kedahball's accent. Northernmost state (into the unknooooooooooooownnnnnn). Used to be friends with Sadaoball until the latter came under direct Siamese rule. Yeah, he's not Ukraine. Far from it. Also, dengan nama tuhan, please don't call him Thai.
  • Pahang-icon.png Pahangball - Home of the strawberries, tea, and casinos, delicious tempoyak, a very big and broad river (the largest in the peninsula), the National Park, Siti Nurhaliza (greatest singer, change my mind) Bera Lake, Chini Lake (with a legend stating that there's a dragon living at the bottom of the lake, similar to the Nessie lore), nothing much. Genting is of in Pahang-icon.png Pahang not from Singapore wannabe Selangor. Has the highest mountains in the Peninsula. Best state for sea fishing, many sailfishes and other big game fish in his waters. The same territory also houses the wrecks of two British WWII warships.
  • Negeri Sembilan-icon.png Negeri Sembilanball - Abnormal enclaves of monarchy. His unique culture is the result of a mix between local traditions and customs with Minangkabau traditions and customs brought by Minangkabau explorers from the Pagaruyung Sultanate in what is now West Sumatra (Malay and Minangkabau people, best friends! Our languages are pretty intelligible to each other, but he has some weird spelling). You may know about his royal palace, the majestic Seri Menanti Palace, in a setting that's frankly, quite similar to the Pagaruyung Palace back in Sumatra. Also, best spicy food and smoked duck you'll taste in your entire life.
  • Johor-icon.png Johorball - Singapore-icon.png Tringaporean wannabe? Where most dumb people become famous and went viral nationally. Other unfamous people are smart. (That's nice.) Leads other states in football. Calls himself the 'Southern Tiger'. And he (probably) has the handsomest boys and prettiest girls in the country. There's a legend stemming from his highest mountain, Gunung (Mountain) Ledang about a beautiful princess that once offered crazy demands to the ruler of Malacca Sultanate-icon.png Malacca Sultanateball in order to marry her, which he ultimately refused because the craziest part of her demands includes the blood of his own son. He is very rich too. He is good in football too, although lately Terengganu is catching up to him.

Borneo/Kalimantan (Malaysia Timur)

States in Borneo (East Malaysia)
