It is very poor, 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. Stronk.
The capital can into funny name.
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 of 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-imperialism, he would call out Franceball's neoconservative influence, Franceball being threatened by this, Franceball planned a coup against him. 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 202
Due to Kaboré's failure to counter-attack on 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 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. Silimar to Mali, this made French influence rot and made pro-Russian influence a thing as you see here, although not really. This had been due to protests against Franceball's miltary taking place in the region.
