"With a population of over 32 million, Malaysia is the world's 43th-most populous country."
I do not believe there is any such thing as a "43th-most" anything. You may consider changing it to "43rd." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Madaboutplaid (talk • contribs) 02:21, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
I have undertaken research, without billing Wikipedia my usual rate, to sort this out. The 2nd sentence (as of the date and time you can find stamped on this edit) says there are 13 "states". The 2nd-to-last sentence of the third paragraph states that the Monarch is elected by "the nine Malay states". I have pieced it together by my uncompensated labors that one of the nine "Malay States" and one of the 13 "States" are not the same thing, but I wished you made that definition clear FOR me without making me do the work. Actually, NO, I did NOT figure it out. Of the 13 "States", 11 are on the Malay Peninsula, so, upon review, I have NO IDEA why only 9 the 13 States are called "Malay States", whose "rulers" can become Monarch of Malaysia, and why four states' "rulers" are not eligible to become Monarch of Malaysia. I give up, and curse Wikipedia's name yet again. A pox, nay, a Malayse, be upon thee.2604:2000:1383:8B0B:103:D4DB:AD9A:6C92 (talk) 22:41, 9 August 2020 (UTC)Christopher L. Simpson
