Singapore is a hi-tech, wealthy city-state in south-east Asia, also known for the conservatism of its leaders and its strict social controls. (...) Although Singapore is a multi-party nation, the People's Action Party (PAP) has been the dominant force since independence, regularly winning well over 60% of the vote. But some critics say the PAP cements its hold on power by a electoral system that makes it difficult for opposition parties to gain seats, as well as warnings that it will target investment at constituencies that vote PAP. Singapore is often referred to as one of Asia's economic "tigers". Its economy is driven by electronics manufacturing and financial services
and has weathered regional crises, including the 1997 Asian markets slump, the 2003 Sars virus outbreak and the 2009 world banking crisis. 
Singapore is a country in East Asia. They traded in their civil liberties for security and excessive cleanliness. Singapore is also considered a glorious country that chews on banana instead of gum. The PAP regularly wins elections, partly because they threaten to withhold investments from areas that don't vote for them. We're not sure if Singapore is a Democracy or not. Singapore enjoys very high living standards but the penal code is severe.
Recently, police brutality has been reported in an Indian festival, where drummers were beaten up by the police for making too much noise. This is hypocritical, as the Malays drum loudly in weddings and and the Chinese too make lots of noise and burn lots of joss paper during their seventh month, yet they are tolerated. Singapore preaches racial harmony but this is to give an impression that they are good guys, but they are not. 
Singapore is a country that pretends to be Liberal when in fact it is a Conservative nation.
Singaporeans themselves, regardless of ethnicity, are also extremely racist, even if they don't belong in a hate group; they rant and pick on foreigners and immigrants much of the time.
Homosexuality is never tolerated in Singapore. In 2014, during a peaceful pro-gay demonstration, Muslim and Christian fundamentalists arrive to demonize the supporters. Well, what can we expect from a country that is 70% religious, with strict laws.. Conservatism is rife. We as Liberals do not demonize religious people as there are many nice religious people out there; we only mock the Conserative ones.
Lastly, elitism also runs rampant in Singapore, but the education minister won't admit it, and he has the audacity to comment that grades are not important. Without good grades from a good school, unless you have the IQ of Einstein, it is hard to survive in Singapore since employers like to choose people with the best grades, from the best schools. This means that even if you have good grades, but from an inferior school, you will be at disadvantage. A known fact: The income gap between the rich and poor is the 2nd widest in the world. The bright side is that elitists are inherently close minded and can't think out of the box. Parents also like to spank their children using torturous means such as canes if they do not do well in school.
Singapore is a hypocritical, cowardly nation that hides behind a curtain while commiting evil acts. We strongly suggest that Liberals don't befriend Singapore.
