The White Rajahs of Sarawak

This was a bonafide kingdom founded by one James Brooke and carried on with his heirs Charles and Vyner. They were collectively referred to as the White Rajahs of Sarawak.

An interesting and unusual 'curiousity' that history can throw up from time to time. Not unlike the Clunes-Ross family in fact. I believe that they should have continued in power to this very day as well.

I have added some links to John Clunes-Ross and his family who founded a kingdom on the Cocos Islands:

The last Crown Prince of Sarawak dies aged 98

Former HH Rajah Muda (Crown Prince), Anthony Walter Dayrell Brooke, 98, passed away in Wanganui, New Zealand on March 2. He is survived by his wife Gita, son James Lionel, daughter Celia and grandchildren Jason, Laurence and Sura.
Anthony was born in England in 1912. He was the only son of the Tuan Muda of Sarawak Captain Bertram Willes Dayrell Brooke.
Anthony’s uncle Sir Charles Vyner Brooke was the third Rajah of Sarawak. Sir James Brooke became Rajah in 1841 and the Brooke family ruled Sarawak until the Japanese invasion in 1941.
As Sir Charles had no male heir, Anthony’s father, the co-ruling Tuan Muda was the heir-apparent. However, he renounced his claim in favour of his son, who was duly appointed Rajah Muda and heir-apparent in his place. - The Star online

The British Government forced the Brooke family to give up Sarawak in 1946. The Brookes got pensions. Sarawak would be better off if the Brooke's had retained their throne

Why do you think Sarawak would be better off?
