Warsame Samatar (October 11, 1914 – December 5, 1967) was an Burawi industrial magnate who created the Samatar Group, a conglomerate that managed various private entities that deal with oil refining, oil trade, textile manufacturing, and commodities exports. Warsame was born into the Samatar family, a wealthy Burawi family of plantation owners. Warsame and his family were spared in the Red July revolution by helping provide resources and intelligence in the ensuing Great Adonian War and voluntarily giving up land control over their plantations. Warsame, the youngest of 5 children was given no control over any assets after his father's death in 1933 but was able to act as a middleman for his siblings to trade with the rest of the world during the war.

Warsame's wealth grew during the war as he was able to provide safe transport of goods between peacetime states and the Allied Pact, ultimately helping them win the war. After the departure of the Coastal Powers from the Burawi mainland, he was able to take control of many oil fields with the help of anti-kadarist government allies and generals to restore trade with the rest of the world. As the war ended, Warsame was one of the richest men in the world and had run to the partially self-governing region of Mazar to avoid conflicts with the restored kadarist government. Warsame continued to run multiple branches of his businesses uninterrupted after wilfully giving up his control over oil in 1954.

In the years following 1960, he had worked with the Buurawati Restoration Movement, a pro-capitalist and pro-Burawati orthodox faction based out of Mazar to help dismantle the Burawi government. Warsame had fled multiple times during his stay in Mazar to friendly states including Breisland, where he had originally met his wife Christa Müller during the war. During the operation later known as DHIMADOW, he was assassinated by fellow Buurawati Restoration Movement member Yooxanaa Wyen after a meeting. His death and events around that time lead to the 1968 Mazar Land Reform Act, which had ended partial self-governance for any territory of Burawa.
