Present-day Burawa has been the home of many ancient civilizations dating back to the [[Bronze Age]]. The modern state originated from the collapse of the [[Buurawati Empire]] after the deposition of the last emperor [[Kulmis Weyn]], during the [[Burawa Revolt]]. The state underwent drastic changes to its area of control and governance until the coup of [[Manaa Kadar]] in 1925 during the events of [[Blue July]]. Under Burawa's [[Constitution of Burawa|constitution]], the government must redraft the document every 40 years to account for changes in the Burawi society. The last update was in 2000, where the was officially denoted as a [[wikipedia:Secular state|secular]] [[Buuwari socialism|socialist]] [[wikipedia:Republic|republic]].

By the end of the 14th century, the forces of the Buushari Kingdom under the rule of [[King Haweeyo Abraham]] was able to conquer the surrounding empires of Southern Kaftia. In 1490, Haweeyo Abraham, in the [[Declaration of Toghdeer]], announced himself as the ruler of the the new state of [[Buurawati]] as [[Haweeyo Weyn]]. The following year, Haweeyo Weyn, attempted to consolidate power by breaking away from the influence of [[Papal States]] to found his own [[Burawi Catholic Church|church]] under [[Kaftian Catholicism]], a local ideology promoting the lack of foreign papal control. His decision came during the middle of the [[Two Centuries War]], where Buurawati had originally supported the [[Septimania|Septimanian]] state. To avoid an full invasion of Buurawati, Haweeyo Weyn supported the militaries of the [[Zamarra Papacy]] in return of separation after the end of the war. Starting in 1492, he imprisoned and executed several Petran clerics, the result would throw Buurawati into the war, that Haweeyo Weyn used as an exuse to expand northward.

The following decades of Haweeyo's and his son, [[Haweeyo Weyn Labaad]]'s rule was characterized by aggressive [[Buurawati Expansion|conquest]] of neighbor states and territories. By the time of Weyn Labaad's death, the Buurawati Empire's borders had extended from west of [[Orma Empire|Orma]] to the northern coasts of [[Balanta]]. Weyn Labaad was able to exploit the weakness of northern states after the [[War of Tribes]] as well as integrate many rival chiefdoms to join his empire. By 1545, utilizing the current weakness of Illypnian states, Weyn Labaad had launched an attack on Septimania and was able to [[Buurawati conquest of Septimania| conquer]] portions of it's northern coast before Labaad's death in 1569.

[[Haweeyo Weyn Saddexaad]], the youngest son of of Haweeyo Weyn Labaad, assumed the title of Emperor at 25. Trained in the military at a young age and fought in the Invasion of Septimania, Weyn Saddexaad had grown to despise war. Under his rule, the Buurawati Empire had ceased the growth of it's land borders, focusing more on internal infrastructure, including the creation and maintenance of national roadways for trade. Weyn Saddexaad was a controversial leader due to his pacifist attitude and reductionist military practice to a point where he had been [[Assasination of Haweeyo Weyn Saddexaad|killed in 1573]] by a group of military leaders, known as the [[Group of Five]]. Weyn Saddexaad's brother, [[Haweeyo Weyn Afaraad]] hastily took over his role as Emperor. Predicting an oncoming schism, Weyn Afaraad ordered the expansion of the state's military. In the following year, the [[Buurawati Civil War]] had erupted from aids and partners of the Group of Five, who had accumulated power in central territories. Weyn Afaraad, a military general originally, was able to command the remaining loyal forces to victory in 1582.

Because Weyn Afaraad was not the true heir of the Buurawati throne, many of the elite of Buurawati were questioning the current line of succession. Further issues arose as Weyn Saddexaad's only son, [[Mooge Weyn]] was married to a [[Lusitania|Lusitanian]] princess [[Constança do Botão]], a [[Zamarra Catholic Church|Catholic]]. The [[Maris Boqorro]] was drafted in 1581 to standardize the line of succession of emperors, giving Weyn Afaraad's eldest son [[Haweeyo Weyn Shanaad]], the right to rule.

Weyn Shanaad rose to the thrown in 1606 and had ushered in a new age of exploration and discovery. From the start of his reign to the mid 17th century, Weyn Shanaad attempted to "Modernize" the populace of Buurawati by introducing state sponsored scientific institutions, as well as the [[Imperial Shipping Fleet of Buurawati|Imperial Shipping Fleet]], a naval institution focused on discovery and colonization of new territories as well as protection existing assets of the state. In 1624, Buurawati had established it's [[first colonies]] in [[Lurandia]], in current day [[COUNTRYLAND]]. Buurawati's expansion was overall stemmed by it's Illypnian rivals, and overseas territory had begun to wane after the end of Weyn Shanaad's rule.

Weyn Shanaad's son, [[Haweeyo Weyn Lixaad]]'s reign started in 1654 at the age of 14. His young age proved to be a point of instability, where in the first 4 years of his rule, [[Straits War|Septimania]] was able to push the military of Buurawati out of [[Illypnia]]. The shocking defeat of the Buurawati forces continued the time of instability of the nation under it's young leader. In 1658, Weyn Lixaad was captured on return from [[Lusitania]] by Orma privateers.

The top general, [[Kaaiyre Daafaca]] declared war on the [[Orma Empire]] as soon as word arrived his capture. The [[Buurawati-Orma War]] lasted from 1659 to 1684 and tested the forces of the shamed Buurawati military. The conflict ended in a stalemate that damaged both military powers. The [[Treaty of Capua]] was signed in the winter of 1683, but fighting continued until early next year. Haweeyo Weyn Lixaad had died during the conflict in a military prison, but due to the grip and influence of [[Kaaiyre Daafaca]], he was able to declare himself the Emperor in 1684, with the name Kaaiyre Abdikarím.

Kaaiyre Abdikarím attempted to reconquer much of the territories lost during the reign of Weyn Lixaad, starting with territory lost during the [[Buurawati-Orma War]]. Abdikarím launched his [[Buurawati Colonialism|conquest]] of [[Central Kaftia]] in 1694. Fearing the growth of the Illypnian powers, Abdikarím did not attempt to reconquer [[REGION]], which was returned to [[Septimanian]] in the early years of Weyn Lixaad's reign. During Abdikarím's rule, the once military leader, enacted a number of reforms to [[Abdikarím Reforms|improve]] the nation's internal mobility and transportation, military education systems, and research institutions. Abdikarím was the first emperor in Buurawati to establish a national research Univeristy, the [[University of Iskhal]]. Abdikarím's died in 1692 from a concussion from a horse riding accident. His son, [[Kaaiyre Abdikarím Labaad]], took the thrown the same year.

Abdikarím Labaad's continued his father's strong arm policy of reform and expansion. By the turn of the century Burawa had been at it's peak of land occupation, on all continents besides Illypnia. Abdikarím Labaad instituted a [[Second Abdikarím Reforms|second issuance of reforms]] aimed at culture and imperial unity. Some of these policies including enforcing a national language through all it's territories, investment in Buurawati culture and it's spread to it's territories, and the eradication and looting of local religious and cultural artifacts. Abdikarím Labaad died in 1712 with no sons to inherit the thrown. A military tribunal, known as [[Magan Kooxaha]] was established that following year to select a new leader - [[Odawaa Ellyas]].

Many of the newly expanded lands as well as overseas colonies of Buurawati were learning of many new ideals of independence from the recent [[Varkan Restoration War]]. In 1744, [[Kokla]], in Central Kaftia, had declared independence from the Buurawati Empire, prompting the [[Kokla War of Independence]] of Buurawati forces against Orma supported rebels. The war had ended in 1750, with Buurawati conceding the territory to the rebels under [[The Treaty of Ceri]]. By the end of the war, many in Buurawati were questioning the actual power of the Buurawati military that had not been upgraded since the beginning of the century.

With many territories abroad starting to rebel against the poorly armed Buurawati military, the Orma Emperor [[Jeylaani Zerezghi]] had declared war against the crumbling empire. The [[War of 1756]] crippled the remaining central forces of the Buurawati military, and had forced Weyn Toddobaad to call for a mandatory conscription of all men from every territory to resist the newly upgraded [[Orma Imperial Force]]. The war had ended in 1760 with Orma managing to take the [[Territory of Hiiran|Territory of Hiiran]] and force Buurawati to pay for it's war debts.

With this huge defeat, many within the Buurawati Empire had begun to doubt the ability of their current emperor. Calls for abdication as well as the [[Buurawati Democratic Movement|calls for a democratic state]] had been heard throughout the capital of Iskhal. [[Weyn Toddobaad]] was forced to abdicate in 1772 during the [[Badalga Convention of 1772]], giving the title of Emperor to [[Biixi Weyn]], the great-great-grandson of [[Weyn Saddexaad]]. Biixi Weyn was not given the title of [[Weyn Siddeedaadna]] as he was [[Zamarra Catholic Church|Catholic]]. Under his rule, he oversaw the attempt to reconquer lands taken by the Orma Empire, which was undergoing a civil war. In 1782, Biixi Weyn had announced his support for the [[Fuuldura Kan Gadaa| democratic insurgents]] in the Orma Empire that would ultimately lead to the collapse of their neighbor state in 1786. Biixi Weyn was able to reconquer the the Territory of Hiiran before the fall of the empire. In the following years, Buurawati had started to modernize it's military. Biixi Weyn died in his sleep in 1799, his son Kulmis Weyn was able to take the thrown.

Kulmis Weyn's reign revolved around the emerging democratic movements first discussed 40 years before. With the revelation of the many genocidal tactics of the Buurawati military in it's colonies, many local Buurawati citizens became distraught at the current Emperor. While this was happening, Buurawati was experiencing tens of revolts against these cultural and actual genocides in it's territories, slowly damaging it's military regime.

The Burawa Republic (Burawi: Jamhuuriyadda Buurawati), commonly known as Burawa (Burawi: Buurawati), is a federal republic of approximately 63 million people located in Southern Kaftia that stretches the northern part of the Mesogean Sea. The nation is comprised of 24 states, 2 Free Economic Zones, and a Federal Capital District where the capital, Kankadadka is located.

Present-day Burawa has been the home of many ancient civilizations dating back to the Bronze Age. The modern state originated from the collapse of the Buurawati Empire after the deposition of the last emperor Kulmis Weyn, during the Burawa Revolt. The state underwent drastic changes to its area of control and governance until the coup of Manaa Kadar in 1925 during the events of Blue July. Under Burawa's constitution, the government must redraft the document every 40 years to account for changes in the Burawi society. The last update was in 2000, where the was officially denoted as a secular socialist republic.

Burawa is a highly developed country and has Adonia's ??th largest economy by purchasing power parity. It is a member of the Adonian Community, the Pan-Kaftian Economic Development Organization and the South Kaftian Peace Association.

Buurawati Empire (1490 - 1832)

Rise

By the end of the 14th century, the forces of the Buushari Kingdom under the rule of King Haweeyo Abraham was able to conquer the surrounding empires of Southern Kaftia. In 1490, Haweeyo Abraham, in the Declaration of Toghdeer, announced himself as the ruler of the the new state of Buurawati as Haweeyo Weyn. The following year, Haweeyo Weyn, attempted to consolidate power by breaking away from the influence of Papal States to found his own church under Kaftian Catholicism, a local ideology promoting the lack of foreign papal control. His decision came during the middle of the Two Centuries War, where Buurawati had originally supported the Volisanian state. To avoid an full invasion of Buurawati, Haweeyo Weyn supported the militaries of the Zamarra Papacy in return of separation after the end of the war. Starting in 1492, he imprisoned and executed several Petran clerics, the result would throw Buurawati into the war, that Haweeyo Weyn used as an exuse to expand northward.

The following decades of Haweeyo's and his son, Haweeyo Weyn Labaad's rule was characterized by aggressive conquest of neighbor states and territories. By the time of Weyn Labaad's death, the Buurawati Empire's borders had extended from west of Orma to the northern coasts of Balanta. Weyn Labaad was able to exploit the weakness of northern states after the War of Tribes as well as integrate many rival chiefdoms to join his empire. By 1545, utilizing the current weakness of Illypnian states, Weyn Labaad had launched an attack on Volisania and was able to conquer portions of it's northern coast before Labaad's death in 1569.

Haweeyo Weyn Saddexaad, the youngest son of of Haweeyo Weyn Labaad, assumed the title of Emperor at 25. Trained in the military at a young age and fought in the Invasion of Volisania, Weyn Saddexaad had grown to despise war. Under his rule, the Buurawati Empire had ceased the growth of it's land borders, focusing more on internal infrastructure, including the creation and maintenance of national roadways for trade. Weyn Saddexaad was a controversial leader due to his pacifist attitude and reductionist military practice to a point where he had been killed in 1573 by a group of military leaders, known as the Group of Five. Weyn Saddexaad's brother, Haweeyo Weyn Afaraad hastily took over his role as Emperor. Predicting an oncoming schism, Weyn Afaraad ordered the expansion of the state's military. In the following year, the Buurawati Civil War had erupted from aids and partners of the Group of Five, who had accumulated power in central territories. Weyn Afaraad, a military general originally, was able to command the remaining loyal forces to victory in 1582.

Because Weyn Afaraad was not the true heir of the Buurawati throne, many of the elite of Buurawati were questioning the current line of succession. Further issues arose as Weyn Saddexaad's only son, Mooge Weyn was married to a Lusitanian princess Constança do Botão, a Catholic. The Maris Boqorro was drafted in 1581 to standardize the line of succession of emperors, giving Weyn Afaraad's eldest son Haweeyo Weyn Shanaad, the right to rule.

After the Maris Boqorro

Weyn Shanaad rose to the thrown in 1606 and had ushered in a new age of exploration and discovery. From the start of his reign to the mid 17th century, Weyn Shanaad attempted to "Modernize" the populace of Buurawati by introducing state sponsored scientific institutions, as well as the Imperial Shipping Fleet, a naval institution focused on discovery and colonization of new territories as well as protection existing assets of the state. In 1624, Buurawati had established it's first colonies in Lurandia, in current day COUNTRYLAND. Buurawati's expansion was overall stemmed by it's Illypnian rivals, and overseas territory had begun to wane after the end of Weyn Shanaad's rule.

Weyn Shanaad's son, Haweeyo Weyn Lixaad's reign started in 1654 at the age of 14. His young age proved to be a point of instability, where in the first 4 years of his rule, Volisania was able to push the military of Buurawati out of Illypnia. The shocking defeat of the Buurawati forces continued the time of instability of the nation under it's young leader. In 1658, Weyn Lixaad was captured on return from Lusitania by Orma privateers.

The top general, Kaaiyre Daafaca declared war on the Orma Empire as soon as word arrived his capture. The Buurawati-Orma War lasted from 1659 to 1684 and tested the forces of the shamed Buurawati military. The conflict ended in a stalemate that damaged both military powers. The Treaty of Capua was signed in the winter of 1683, but fighting continued until early next year. Haweeyo Weyn Lixaad had died during the conflict in a military prison, but due to the grip and influence of Kaaiyre Daafaca, he was able to declare himself the Emperor in 1684, with the name Kaaiyre Abdikarím.

Abdikarím Dynasty

Kaaiyre Abdikarím attempted to reconquer much of the territories lost during the reign of Weyn Lixaad, starting with territory lost during the Buurawati-Orma War. Abdikarím launched his conquest of Central Kaftia in 1694. Fearing the growth of the Illypnian powers, Abdikarím did not attempt to reconquer REGION, which was returned to Volisanian in the early years of Weyn Lixaad's reign. During Abdikarím's rule, the once military leader, enacted a number of reforms to improve the nation's internal mobility and transportation, military education systems, and research institutions. Abdikarím was the first emperor in Buurawati to establish a national research Univeristy, the University of Iskhal. Abdikarím's died in 1692 from a concussion from a horse riding accident. His son, Kaaiyre Abdikarím Labaad, took the thrown the same year.

Abdikarím Labaad's continued his father's strong arm policy of reform and expansion. By the turn of the century Burawa had been at it's peak of land occupation, on all continents besides Illypnia. Abdikarím Labaad instituted a second issuance of reforms aimed at culture and imperial unity. Some of these policies including enforcing a national language through all it's territories, investment in Buurawati culture and it's spread to it's territories, and the eradication and looting of local religious and cultural artifacts. Abdikarím Labaad died in 1712 with no sons to inherit the thrown. A military tribunal, known as Magan Kooxaha was established that following year to select a new leader - Odawaa Ellyas.

Decline and collapse

Odawaa Ellyas, was one of the first military elected emperors of Buurawati. Unlike his predecessors, he was no longer tied to the Maris Boqorro, and was replaced by a new tribunal elected leader after his death. Ellyas ruled shortly from 1712 to 1720, where he oversaw the construction of the Dawacaale Canal, which connected lake Lake Ghefai to Lake Karaas. Ellays was assassinated by agents connected to members of the current Magan Kooxaha. The murder of the emperor sent Shockwaves through the nation as the Magan Kooxaha would soon appoint and assassinate three more Emperors until 1735.

In 1735, Dayax Ćawil, the current General of the 12th Buurawati regiment had ordered the arrest of the members of the Magan Kooxaha. Ćawil was able to arrest and execute the members with little conflict and had declared that he would take the role as Emperor of Buurawati. Dayax Ćawil took the name of Haweeyo Weyn Toddobaad after marrying the great-granddaughter of Weyn Shanaad, Aamino Weyn, in 1737. As emperor, Weyn Toddobaad was able to restore order in many of the overseas territories of Buurawati as well as continue Abdikarím Labaad's policy of cultural genocide.

Many of the newly expanded lands as well as overseas colonies of Buurawati were learning of many new ideals of independence from the recent Varkan Restoration War. In 1744, Kokla, in Central Kaftia, had declared independence from the Buurawati Empire, prompting the Kokla War of Independence of Buurawati forces against Orma supported rebels. The war had ended in 1750, with Buurawati conceding the territory to the rebels under The Treaty of Ceri. By the end of the war, many in Buurawati were questioning the actual power of the Buurawati military that had not been upgraded since the beginning of the century.

With many territories abroad starting to rebel against the poorly armed Buurawati military, the Orma Emperor Jeylaani Zerezghi had declared war against the crumbling empire. The War of 1756 crippled the remaining central forces of the Buurawati military, and had forced Weyn Toddobaad to call for a mandatory conscription of all men from every territory to resist the newly upgraded Orma Imperial Force. The war had ended in 1760 with Orma managing to take the Territory of Hiiran and force Buurawati to pay for it's war debts.

With this huge defeat, many within the Buurawati Empire had begun to doubt the ability of their current emperor. Calls for abdication as well as the calls for a democratic state had been heard throughout the capital of Iskhal. Weyn Toddobaad was forced to abdicate in 1772 during the Badalga Convention of 1772, giving the title of Emperor to Biixi Weyn, the great-great-grandson of Weyn Saddexaad. Biixi Weyn was not given the title of Weyn Siddeedaadna as he was Catholic. Under his rule, he oversaw the attempt to reconquer lands taken by the Orma Empire, which was undergoing a civil war. In 1782, Biixi Weyn had announced his support for the democratic insurgents in the Orma Empire that would ultimately lead to the collapse of their neighbor state in 1786. Biixi Weyn was able to reconquer the the Territory of Hiiran before the fall of the empire. In the following years, Buurawati had started to modernize it's military. Biixi Weyn died in his sleep in 1799, his son Kulmis Weyn was able to take the thrown.

Kulmis Weyn's reign revolved around the emerging democratic movements first discussed 40 years before. With the revelation of the many genocidal tactics of the Buurawati military in it's colonies, many local Buurawati citizens became distraught at the current Emperor. While this was happening, Buurawati was experiencing tens of revolts against these cultural and actual genocides in it's territories, slowly damaging it's military regime.

The Burawa Revolt began in 1829 was the final major conflict in the aging Empire of Buurawati. The current emperor, Kulmis Weyn, unable to maintain his fragmented military, was forced to abdicate the thrown to liberation forces. Fighting continued for three years as many of Kulmis Weyn's governers fought to maintain various territories from Askagha to Mashar. The fighting came to an end in 1832 with the signature of the Odowadiri Accords that created six independent states from the remnants of the Buurawati empire.

Military

The Burawi Military is organized into Ciidamada Cirka (Air Force), Ciidan (Army), Ciidamada Badda (Navy), Adeeg Cilmi, and Adeegga Caafimaadka. In 2015, military spending was ₭60.75 billion, about 2.5% of the country's GDP.

With a reported 312,423 active and 2,546,172 reserve service members, Burawa is considered both a major regional and military power. Burawa since it's foundation has had compulsory military training and service for it's non-nomadic citizens starting at the age of 18 for two years. Since 1977, college students and persons involved in grant-funded independent research are able to forgo training and participate in a two week boot-camp for four years. After their expected term of service, citizens are expected to join reserve forces and usually participate in duty every one to two years for two weeks until their forties.

The Burawi military primarily relies on a combination of high-tech weapons systems and satellite/air defense networks to keep and maintain it's sovereignty over it's disputed territories as well as provide support to partner nations in the Pan-Kaftian Defense Network.

Economy

Burawa has a heavily controlled semi-socialist economy with a highly skilled labour force, a large capital stock, a low level of corruption, and a high level of innovation. It is the world's sixth largest exporter of goods, and has the largest national economy in Kaftia.

Most of Burawa's major enterprises are state owned, organizations that usually aren't state owned are classed as non-essential businesses, which are companies that do not contribute "majorly to a Burawi person's life". Such businesses include Yadir, an investment banking firm, Nassér, an asset management organization, Kosham-Guuce, a major electronics manufacturer and Korsa, a major social networking website.

As of 2015 Burawa's labor force consisted of 32.4 million workers. Burawa has a low unemployment rate of 3.0%, mainly attributed by bike-shed jobs sponsored by the government. Poverty is relatively low in the low-lands of Burawa with a rate of 3.3%, while the access to government programs is still lacking in northern parts of the country, where poverty rate is estimated to be around 25%.

Exports

Burawa has a diverse and large export capacity, with exports ranging from electronics, chemical goods, oil, natural gas, copper, plastics, machine tools, pharmaceuticals, processed foods and, electronic parts.

Imports

Burawa's main imports are vehicles, raw materials, and textiles. Burawa is one of the worst countries to do business in, with one of the highest taxes on corporate income. Most imports are handled by the Burawa Import Bank, which may purchase wholesale goods tax-free and resell them locally or organize direct sales inside Burawa. Since 2002, companies no longer needed to coordinate sales with the Burawa Import Bank and could perform direct sales to retailers.

Technology

Technology has been the forefront of Burawi strategy since Kaaiyre Abdikarím. Burawa since 2005 has made significant investments in scientific research grants with 84$ billion spent on average each year. Burawa has been home to some famous inventors and engineers, inclding Barkhad Zakaria, the inventor of y, as well as Bedri Ćigál, the father of g.

The Burawa National Space Agency is the largest contributor to the Kaftian Space Association, with names including Geedi Warsamé, the inventor of the modern Solar thermal rocket, who currently work there. The space program is one of the world's most active. It's first satellite, Kaxarey-1 was launched in 1969 and doing so became the fourth country to independently launch one. Burawa sent it's first human into space in 1994, being the sixth country to do so independently.

Research has been a main focus of the current Burawan Technology initiative, with grants to universities and their students making up 30% of their technology investment budget. Their top schools have produced 8 Nobel Prize in Physics, 3 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and 2 in Medicine. In 2015 their universities had also produced 82,000 BSc students.

Burawa has also invested into the development of supercomputers, which are consistently ranked near the top. Since the 1990's much of the manufacturing industry has grown to utilize industrial robots.

Since 2002, Burawa has changed its policy on the research and sale of technology developments to prevent the emigration of the best engineers in the country. The policy change allowed companies built on-top or utilizing the internet protection from nationalization without due cause in court, where it's deemed as a public necessity. This new policy allowed hundreds of startups to pop up in cities like Iskhal and Kaysoor.

As of 2016, 72.1% of Buwari households own a computer, and 86.4% own a mobile phone.

Free Economic Zones

Free Economic Zones were regions created during the Split of 1964 after the nationalization of many core companies by the Burawi government. These Free Economic Zones were designated spaces where most industries (excluding transportation and infrastructure) were not nationalized as to appease regional groups who attempted to leave the country during the split. There are currently two Free Economic Zones that operate semi-independently within Burawa. These freedoms, given to the cities of Lambdia and Mazar allow the cities to control much of the economic decisions of the region, while being militarily and politically controlled by the Burawi Federal Government.

Transportation

Burawa has been historically known for it's well connected and maintained roadways since the the reign of Weyn Saddexaad. In the 1970's the mandate on national infrastructure renewed improvement on all forms of transportation within the nation. The country had adopted a three tier transportation network headed by aircraft, then trains, then roadways, all which needed to be connected to each major city in the country. The infrastructure overhaul primarily effected it's train system, which had lagged behind the western powers.

Burawa has one of the most comprehensive major road networks in the world, where national, state and district operated highways and expressways totaling 209,344 miles (336,907 km) are able to connect to 98% of the population. The IKA is one of the busiest freight transit routes in Kaftia, connecting the Ports of Mazar and Iskhal with cities and factories in southern Nalara. In 2015 there were a total of 30 million licensed vehicles in Burawi.

Railways in Burawi are operated by the state-owned, Burawi Railway Corporation, that handles 85.3 billion tonne-km of freight and 44.1 billion passenger-km every year. The national rail network is divided into a three tier system of high speed rail, commuter rail, and freight rail that wholley operate on 27,432 miles (44,147.5 km) of track. The Burawi Railway Corporation also provides rail services to neighboring Sabia and southern Kushish and Nalara. 17 cities in Burawa also have city-specific urban mass transit systems, including the Iskhal Metro, the Mazar 5, and the Badalga Metro.

There are 85 commercial airports currently in Burawa that handle over 274 million passengers a year. The largest of these airports are Iskhal Togdheer International Airport (72.01 million), Mazar International Airport (40.56 million) and Badalga Fiishar International Airport (24.85 million), all together handled over 50% of the passengers entering the country. Burawa's main airlines are nationalized and divided into specific regions, Dawati, the flag carrier is an exception, as it operates in all regions of Burawa. The country's Free Economic Zone cities are also home to three other privately owned airlines, Hawada Mazar, Lambdia Fluglinie, and Redways Fluglinie.

Energy

Burawa ranks x in energy consumption per-capita, utilizing the equivalent of 6.6 tons (5,987.42 kg) of oil per year. 30% from nuclear, 28% from natural gas, 22% of this energy came from natural gas, and the remainder from renewable energy. Burawa is the x largest producer of oil, producing 3.25 billion barrels a day as well as the x largest source of natural gas with 7.1 trillion cubic meters of gas. The country in the 50s and 60s had relied on oil to fuel growth of it's infrastructure and industry, but since 1992 started to reduce it's energy and economic reliance on the fuel by investing in nuclear energy and other clean energy sources.

Health

Burawa has a life expectancy of 80.1 years at birth, up from 78.5 years in 1990.
