Litter in the Republic of Singapore

Singapore prides itself on being a very clean country.  Littering is punishable by a S$200 fine for the first offense.  But if you litter again, you can be ordered by the court to work picking up litter for up to 12 hours.  This is the same country where vandalism is punishable by imprisonment and being beaten with a cane and where bringing heroin into the country is punishable by death.  Yes, it is a tough law and order sort of place, but it is one of the safest countries in the world.
