This link is for an article from The Economist.  It basically discusses how Singapore’s government operates, why it is efficient, and whether or not the West or China could use the same ideas.  Maybe you find it boring, maybe you find it interesting.

It was part of an overall special report on how government spending is out of control in Europe and the US.  In my opinion, the small size of Singapore and the fact that it is an island ( natural barriers to illegal entry ), is what really makes the difference.  That said, as I mentioned in a post a long time ago, sometimes it seems like a genius designed this place, other times like Homer Simpson is in charge.

Also, for reference, here is the Economist article on the Chinese government.

Please accept my apologies if it lacks any entertainment value.
