The city state of Singapore is the latest stop of the Queen's Baton Relay as it travels around the 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth.

Singapore enjoyed its best ever Commonwealth Games in 2010 with 30 medals in badminton, gymnastics, shooting and table tennis.

It has competed at every event since the 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Cardiff. Those Games also saw the inaugural Queen's Baton Relay.

The BBC's country profile highlights some of the key facts about the Asian nation.
