Although slowly built up from a number of fragments carved out of pre-existing states in the region, Britain's possessions in Southeast Asia over the long haul left the colonial period as four independent states: Burma (Myanmar), Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei. Despite the unique circumstances and separate evolution of these administrations, their history in the interim has much in common and has had similar effects. There is still a British military presence in the region, a lasting legacy of British rule there.
