"The term British Malaya loosely describes a set of states on the Malay Peninsula and the island of Singapore that were brought under British control between the 18th and the 20th centuries. British Malaya comprised the Straits Settlements, the Federated Malay States, and the Unfederated Malay States.

Under British rule, Malaya was one of the most profitable territories of the Empire, being the world's largest producer of tin and later rubber."
