They border  Maliball to the North,  Côte d'Ivoireball to the Southwest, Ghanaball and  Togoball to the South, Beninball to the Southeast, and  Nigerball to the east. They have 274,223km² of clay, making them the 74th largest country on Earthball, between New Zealandball and Ecuadorball. They also have 22,749,324 inhabitants, making them the 58th most populous, between Maliball and Syriaball. (29 June 2023)

    It is very poor, estimated $900 GDP per Capita by 2023, has AIDS, and, along with a lot of other African countries, has issues with hunger. Despite this, it is one of the least corrupt countryballs in Africa.

    The capital can into funny name. (It's Ouagadougou)

    In the French language Burkina Faso is a masculine noun. However, like all the others countryballs, the character does not have a specific gender (because many other languages, such as English for example, do not usually give gender to countries).

    History

    Burkina Fasoball was an  8ball and formed into many Mossi Kingdomballs. Then, Franceball adopted it in 1896 where it became part of  French West Africaball. The territory now known as Burkina Fasoball separated from Ivory Coastball in the form of  French Upper Voltaball later in 1919. The name comes from its location up on the Volta River.

    In 1958, it gained self-governance before becoming fully independent in 1960 under the name of the  Republic of Upper Voltaball.

    In 1983, Thomas Sankara came to power in a coup and would rename the country to Burkina Faso in 1984. Sankara would make Burkina Faso self-sufficient and create a food surplus, vaccinate 2 million Burkinabé in order to combat measles, meningitis, and polio, combat deforestation, and distribute land to the peasants. However, being an anti-imperialist, he would call out Franceball's neoconservative influence. Franceball feeling threatened by this, planned a coup against it. In 1987, Sankara would be killed in a coup. Blaise Compaoré would then become dicator president and Burkina Fasoball would fall under Franceball and its CFA franc would be used to exploit the country back to poverty.

    The countryball has since been the victim of multiple coups d'état. The latest coup was in 2014 as many oppositions allied against Blaise Compaoré (such as Sakarists). This was because Blaise Compaoré tried changing the constitution to stay for around 27 more years. The "Congress for Democracy and Progress" party was overthrown in the 2014 coup, with Roch Marc Christian Kaboré establishing the "People's Movement for Progress" which ousted Blaise Compaoré. In 2021, it is suffering from terrorist attacks killing 100 but it also won its first medal, which was bronze, in the Tokyo 20201 Olympics.

    Due to Kaboré's failure to counter-attack on terrorists in the countryball's clay, his dissents in the army started firing gunshots. Even though 8 officers were arrested, the military was successful in overthrowing Kaboré. The constitution is now suspended and now the militias orders the sacking from chiefs to fight ISISball and Al-Qaedaball. President Kaboré has been contained by officers. In response, Burkina Fasoball received condemnation from both UNball and African Unionball. Burkina Faso was later suspended from both the African Unionball and ECOWASball. Similar to Maliball, this coup caused French influence rot and made pro-Russian influence a thing, as as some were seen waving the Russian national flag 🇷🇺. This had been due to protests against Franceball's miltary taking place in the region as France is seen as unhelpful. After weeks of the transition, the constitution was restored on the 31st January, and Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba had been enrolled as president for the interm. However, Damiba was overthrown by general Ibrahim Traoré in another military coup in September 2022.

    According to the government, a coup attempt took place in September 2023.
