Only one of the three will be pulped?

It's probably one of the most ethnically diverse places I've ever been. They've got Hindus, Christians and Muslims, millions of 'em, living pretty much right on top of each other. They all get along because most of them have made out pretty darn well for themselves in the global economy and poverty is pretty much non-existent. It's also pretty authoritarian, not a lot of freedom and you'd be amazed at how many cameras a government can put up if it sets its mind to it. It's pretty much 1984 in Singapore and the People's Action Party has been Big Brother since the British left them the place. It's also really expensive and uncomfortably clean, you drop something, you pick it up, even if you don't want it.
