Singapore is one of the most expensive countries in the world. It’s a small island country in Southeast Asia, located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. Singapore is home to about 5 million people. The country’s economy has been growing steadily since its independence from Malaysia in 1965, which helped make it one of Asia’s wealthiest nations by 2010.

New Zealand is the most expensive country in the world. There are several reasons for this, but one of them has to do with its currency. The New Zealand dollar is pegged against the US dollar and it’s been at par since 1985, which means that if you’re going to buy something in New Zealand, you’ll need to pay over $1 USD for every NZ$1.
