    History[edit | edit source]

    Burkina Fasoball was an 8-icon.png 8ball and formed into many Mossi Kingdoms-icon.png Mossi Kingdomballs. Then, France-icon.png Franceball adopted it in 1896 where it became part of French West Africa-icon.png French West Africaball. The territory now known as Burkina Fasoball separated from France-icon.png Ivory Coastball in the form of French Upper Volta-icon.png 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 Volta-icon.png Republic of Upper Voltaball.

    In 1983, Thomas Sankara-icon.png Thomas Sankara came to power in a coup and would rename the country to Burkina Faso-icon.png 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 France-icon.png Franceball's neoconservative influence. France-icon.png Franceball feeling threatened by this, planned a coup against it. In 1987, Thomas Sankara-icon.png Sankara would be killed in a coup. Burkina Faso-icon.png Blaise Compaoré would then become dicator president and Burkina Faso-icon.png Burkina Fasoball would fall under France-icon.png 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 Thomas Sankara-icon.png 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 {{I|ISIS},} Al-Qaeda-icon.png terrorists in the countryball's clay, his dissents in the army started firing gunshots just a few days ago. Even though 8 officers were arrested, the military was successful in overthrowing Kaboré. The constitution is now suspended and now the militia now orders the sacking from chiefs to fight ISIS-icon.png and Al-Qaeda-icon.png Al-Qaedaball. President Kaboré has been contained by officers. In response, Burkina Fasoball received condemnation from both UN-icon.png UNball and African Union-icon.png African Unionball. Burkina Faso-icon.png Burkina Faso was later suspended from both the African Union-icon.png African Unionball and ECOWAS-icon.png ECOWASball. Similar to Mali-icon.png Maliball, this coup caused France-icon.png French influence rot and made Russia-icon.png pro-Russian influence a thing, as as some were seen waving the Russian national flag 🇷🇺. This had been due to protests against France-icon.png 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.
