The Burawa Republic (Burawi: Jamhuuriyadda Buurawat), commonly known as Burawa (Burawi: Buurawat), is a unitary republic of approximately 76.22 million people located in Southern Kaftia that stretches the northern part of the Mesogean Sea. The nation is comprised of 33 provinces, 3 Independent Cities, one of which is the Capital District where the capital, Kankadadka is located as well as 8 territorial possesions.
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 Buurawat Empire after the deposition of the last emperor Cawil III, ten years after the end of the Silent Revolution. The country, then known as the Burawa State was a confederal republic of 8 regions lead under a President. Burawa went through a period of incredible economic and industrial growth that also contributed to gross inequality throughout the nation. Internal tensions continued to grow until the 1924 Burawi Revolution when Manaa Kadar and his socialist Kadarist party took control of the nation.
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, the Kaftian Union and an associate member of the Mesogean Cooperation Organization.

Ancient and Classic Periods
Medieval Period (325 - 1490)
During the fall of the Mesogean League, many independent city-states had started to expand past its borders; cities like Mazar, Catania, and Lambdia were occupying areas along rivers to the further inland. In 325, the warrior-king Sonda I of the small Kingdom of Ufyen had begun to rapidly expand from their native land surrounding Haro Lake. Sonda and his successors, Sonda II and Sonda III were able to expand their empire, known as the Sonda Dynasty from Haro to regions just short of the NORTHERN SEA by 433. The 4th to the 7th century were marked by instability in area, much of the coastline had been fragmented to smaller kingdoms and city states. TheAnab people, a group of invaders spurring from the Vasaros, had started to appear on the coast around 500 to set up trading outposts and later villages. The Anab people, underneath Babrak I, established a small kingdom around Souq peninsula.
In 785, the ruler of the Webi Kingdom, Markos Ellyas had named himself the ruler of all Burawi people, renaming his nation to the Buurawat Kingdom and gave himself the name Markos I. With the support of the Papal States, he had formed an army to expand his empire north and westward towards the Sonda Dynasty. Sonda VI, the ruler at the time began fighting skirmishes with the Buurawat Empire in the 40 years war. The war had ended only a few years after Markos I had died, leaving his throne to his two sons, Markos II and Andoni I. The two brothers had decided to split the empire into two halves along the Kaysoor river, the Eastern Buurawat Kingdom and the Western Buurawat Kingdom.
The Western Buurawat Kingdom was formed in 825 under the leadership of Markos II, the elder brother of Andoni. He was given the western territories of the Buurawat kingdom as requested by his father. The territory at the time had stretched west of the Kaysoor River until the land reaching an area west of modern-day Pashano. Under the leadership of Markos II and his subsequent heirs the kingdom was able to expand westward to modern-day Linakia. By 855, the state had been known as the Western Buurawat Empire.
When Markos IV, the grandson of Markos II had died in 933, he had no heirs to the empire. The eastern empire, run by Yacuub II, had attempted to court the lords of the western empire to unify the two empire. This period in time was known as the Crisis of 933. The western empire had found an heir later that year, Yonadan I, a prince of the Maia kingdom who was the grandson of Markos II's sister. Yondan had ascended but tensions between the western and eastern empire had grown as the Maia kingdom had continually waged war against the Eastern kingdom. To reduce the threat of an oncoming war between the nations, Yondan had relinquished his title as prince of Maia and only as king of the western kingdom.
The western kingdom under Yondan's rule had continued to prosper until his death in 965. His son, Carhan had continued to keep the empire stable. The nation was very skinny in the western portions, often only reaching 40km into the territory before the thick jungle. The nation had fought small tribes and groups on the fringes of the region. Carhan had decided to centralize his authority and had moved his capital from Samara all the way to Linge. In 982, Western Buurawat, now run by Yacuub III had declared that he was the emperor of both western and eastern Buurawat; claiming that the Carhan was not a legitimate heir of the western empire.
Eastern Buurawat originally occupied areas between all Burawi speaking areas between present-day Sabia and eastern Kaytoy. The ruler, Andoni I of Buurawat had spent most of his time restoring areas formerly run by the Sonda Dynasty into Buurawat territory. With the death of Sonda IV and the rise of the Maia Kingdom in the area northeast of Haro, many Burawi speaking territories had defected to Andoni. In 805, the kingdom had fought the 50 years war with neighboring Maia Kingdom, eventually winning and increasing their territory in the east.
Buurawat Empire (1490 - 1832)
By the middle of the 1400's much of the remnants of the Southern Buurawat Empire had begun to weaken from internal and external conflicts. The third son of Haweeyo II, Haweeyo Wyen| was able to consolidate power within the fighting factions and in 1490, in the Declaration of Toghdeer, announced himself as the ruler of a unified Buurawat Empire, renaming himself Weyn I. The following year, Weyn I, attempted to consolidate power by breaking away from the influence of Papal States to found his own church under Kaftian Catholicism. His decision came during the middle of the Two Centuries War, where Buurawat had originally supported the Volisania. To avoid a an invasion of Buurawat, Weyn I supported the militaries of the Zamarra Papacy. Starting in 1492, he imprisoned and executed several Petran clerics, bringing himself into the war.
The following decades of Weyn I and his son, Weyn II's rule was characterized by aggressive conquest of neighboring kingdoms and lands. By the time of Weyn II's death, the Buurawat Empire's borders had extended from west of Orma to the northern coasts of Balanta. Weyn II was able to exploit the general weakness of the northern regions of the Kaffa Peninsula to quickly integrate many rival chiefdoms to join his empire. By 1545, he mounted a invasion of Volisania and was able to take hold of Reige for a number of years.
Weyn III, the youngest son of Weyn II, assumed the title of Emperor at 25. Trained in the military at a young age and fought in the invasion of Volisania, Weyn III had grown to despise war. Under his rule, the Buurawat Empire had ceased the growth of its land borders, focusing more on internal infrastructure, including the creation and maintenance of national roadways for trade. Weyn III 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 III's third son, Amail of Haro hastily took over his role as emperor, taking the name Weyn IV. Predicting an oncoming schism, Weyn IV ordered the execution of all the group of five members and affiliates as well as forced the exile of his two brothers.
Because Weyn IV was not considered the true heir of the Buurawat throne, many of the elite of Buurawat were questioning the current line of succession. Further issues arose as Weyn IV's only son, Mooge of Odari was married to a Kastrunetian princess Constança do Botão, a catholic. After Weyn IV's death, the Maris Boqorro, or Passage of Kings doctrine, was established by the Burawat church to standardize of succession of emperors to the eldest son of the descendant of Weyn I. This moved the line of succession from Mooge of Odari to Weyn III's eldest son's eldest son Harad Weyn, later named Weyn V.
Post-Maris Boqorro Reforms
Weyn V rose to power 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 Buurawat 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, Buurawat had established its first colonies in Lurandia, in current day COUNTRYLAND. Buurawat's expansion was overall stemmed by its Illypnian rivals, and overseas territory had begun to wane after the end of Weyn Shanaad's rule.
Weyn V son, Weyn VI'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 Buurawat out of Illypnia. The shocking defeat of the Buurawat forces continued the time of instability of the nation under its young leader. In 1658, Weyn VI was captured on return from Kastruneto by Orma privateers.
The top general, Kaaiyre Daafaca declared war on the Orma Kingdom as soon as word arrived his capture. The Buurawat-Orma War lasted from 1659 to 1684. 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. Weyn VI had died during the conflict due to the sinking of ship he was set to return on. Kaaiyre Daafaca, using his power and status was able to declare himself emperor after annoucing the death of the childless Weyn VI. He was crowned emperor in 1684, with the name Kaaiyre Abdikarím or Abdikarím I.
Abdikarím I attempted to reconquer much of the territories lost during the reign of Weyn VI, starting with territory lost during the Buurawat-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 Volisania in the early years of Weyn VI 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 Buurawat to establish a national research University, the University of Iskhal. Abdikarím's died in 1692 from a concussion from a horse riding accident. His son, Abdikarím II, took the throne the same year.
Abdikarím II continued his father's strong arm policy of reform and expansion. By the turn of the century the Buurawat empire had colonies on 3 continents. Abdikarím II instituted a second issuance of reforms aimed at culture and imperial unity. Some of these policies including enforcing a national language through all its territories, investment in Buurawat culture and its spread to its territories. The reforms also included a strict new eradication of local religious and cultural artifacts. Abdikarím II died in 1712 with no heir. A military tribunal formed from the Abdikarím's top generals, known as the Magan Kooxaha was established to select a new leader, Odawaa Ellyas. The Magan Kooxaha had created a new system of governance of emperor, where the Magan Kooxaha would create policy and the Emperor would approve it or deny it.
Military Rule (1712-1735)
Odawaa Ellyas the first elected emperor of Buurawat. Unlike his predecessors, he was no longer tied to the Maris Boqorro and had no dynastic claim to Burawa. Ellyas ruled shortly from 1712 to 1720, where he oversaw the construction of the Dawacaale Canal, which connected lake Lake Ghefai to Lake Karaas. Under his leadership, Burawa had continued to grow its borders, with a new military campaign into NEW WORLD. Ellyas had co-ruled alongside the Megan Kooxaha, who had blocked many of Ellyas' plans. Ellyas had attempted to regain control from the tribunal but had lost most support by 1719. Ellyas died in his sleep on June 5, 1720, later revealed to be an assassination by members of Magan Kooxaha.
The Magan Kooxaha from 1720-1735 continued to elect and depose 3 more emperors. The empire between this period in time was very tumultuous and public favor had grown sour of the leadership. In 1735, Dayax Ćawil, one member of the Megan Kooxaha had launched a coup against the tribunal and ordered their arrest and execution. Cawil had made this event very public, utilizing the printing press to notify all of Burawaat that he had overthrown the corrupt tribunal and sought to return power to a Burawi dynasty.
Cawil Reforms (1735-1799)
Dayax Ćawil took the name of Weyn VII after marrying the great-granddaughter of Weyn V, Duchess Aamino of Odari. Cawil's first goals was to present Burawa as a modern state with modern rulers. He created a national bureaucracy modeled after the military and established a parliament that handled the civil affairs of the nation. Cawil took inspiration from many Illypnian states at the time, primarily VOLISANIA. The parliament had consisted of landowners and nobles who would come to advise the emperor as well as draft legislation for law. Cawil also had standardized the alphabet to conform with the Volisanian script and established a national institute of language, to standardize the Burawi language.
Cawil I's rule had lasted until 1772 when he had died of a heart attack. His son, Cawil II, ascended to the throne but had decided to keep his regal name as Cawil instead of Weyn
He had grown many enemies in the ruling class as well as the growing mercentile class. Burawi revolutionaries, supported by some of these parties had mounted various insurrections and revolts in the furthest extents of the Empire. Cawil II during this time had allied himself with Volisania and Orma to combat the encroachment of territory by the colonial Breisland. Burawa joined the War of the Second Coalition after Breisland had invaded Orma. Cawil had died in 1799.
Taxation had remained high in Burawa due to the need to continue squashing uprisings in the western and northern regions of Burawa. The military had continued to thin due to desertion and the emperor had continued to lose support among his people.
The United Party as well as their coalition with the non-aligned parliament members (the United Party was the sole party at the time), had taken advantage of this to advocate for more power. In 1823, the parliament had gained the ability to forge laws and pass them and in 1826 was given reigns over the military. By 1828, with the emperor in poor health, parliament had forced him to abdicate, giving all power in the nation to the unified body in the Concession speech.
After the abdication, the parliament under Yosef Ganacsade began to institute numerous reforms to reduce taxes and improve general wellness in the empire. The plan, known as the Reclaimation Plan of 1829, was an effort to restructure Burawa into a parliamentary state that had less power concentrated in the capital. The first action was moving the capital from Kaysoor to Samara.
Burawa State (1832 - 1925)
The Burawa State was established in 1832 as a loose federation of multiple "nations" that were united under the banner of Burawa. The Parliament of the Burawa Empire in 1830 had set created a forum of all provinces in the empire as well as separatist factions to come to decide the new and fairer nation. The idea was to reorganize groups or nearby provinces into sub-nations that would have their own parliament, leader and domestic government, while an overarching Burawa State would manage inter-region affairs, military and foreign policy. Of the 319 provinces and factions invited to the summit, 204 had decided to remain in Burawa. In 1831, the Samara Accords had established 6 new nations to exist as part of the Burawa State: Burawa, Faheya, Ayorin, Dakare, Maianka, and the Somalka. Each sub-nation would have their own parliament and leader, while the Burawa state would have a legislature chosen of members of the sub-national parliament and a president chosen by the electorate.
The first elections of the Burawa State were held in 1833 with Yosef Ganacsade as the only candidate running for president. Terms in parliament would last 3 years while a president would last 6 years. Ganacsade's government had established ties with the greater world and was recognized by most states. Ganacsade's and the United Party's vision for Burawa was a nation that was powerful through collective confederalism, where regions would work together for a greater cause.
Confederal Era (1835 - 1860)
Burawa State's early era had been categorized by rapid regionalism and the growth of power of the sub-national parliaments. The united party that had won the first election of 1833 had broken up by the third election in 1836. Burawa had 4 national parties and over 20 sub-national parties. The Confederal Era as it was known futher established highly independent regional governments and a weak central authority. Elections for sub-national parliament had almost four times the participation of presidential elections, which had been seen as the selection of a diplomat.
The early 1800s was the beginning of large migrations of people in the Burawa State from primarily agrarian northern territories to more urbanized southern regions. The regions of Dakare, Faheya and Ayorin had the largest outflows to Burawa and Maianka. The influx of migrants started anti-northern sentiment. Backlash from this sentiment paired with growing popular theories of race science such as polygenism had forced legislatures of all sub-nations, who were mostly ethnically Burawi, to enact the first race-based restrictions in the country. These restrictions included bans of non-Burawi to move between nations without licenses as well a migrant's tax for those who had migrated in the last 10 years.
Counter-movements to race-based discrimination arose as more non-Burawi and mixed Burawi people began to fill seats in the sub-national legislatures of northern provinces. The most important legislation to anti-discrimination was the Representation Act of 1844, that had expanded voting rights to all men over the age of 25. This had enfranchised millions of citizens, primarily those of non-Burawi ethnicity.
By the 1850s the central government had started to regain power as a subsequent sub-national legislatures attempted to reduce the influence of non-Burawi people. The 1849 National Act of Burawa had changed the national parliament's structure from 8 representatives of subnational parliament to one that was population based, giving the Nation of Burawa and Nation of Maianka a majority of seats in the legislature. The 1850 Bureaucracy Centralization Act had unified the formerly split up imperial bureaucracy to be managed by the executive of the Burawa State, giving the president power greater than foreign policy and military decisions. The president at the time, Cilmi Milhay was a member of the ruling party, the Federal Party. Milhay's new government imposed greater control of the central government, establishing systems for managing domestic trade, mining, and inter-region commerce.
Industrialization Era (1860 - 1885)
The industrial era of Burawa had began in the 1700s on the southern coasts of Burawa but had taken hold nationally once the nation had become more centralized. The new central government Bureaus under Milhay and subsequent presidents had created a new system of logistics that allowed for the mining and farming of resources in the north and manufacturing and export in the south. The introduction of steamboats in the early 1800s had made navigation along Burawa's hundrends of rivers feasible, easing the transit process of raw goods. Trade with Illypnia had increased as Burawa had become the closest destination for cotton. Private enterprise became common as Burawa opened up
From 1867 to 1870, Burawa and Orma had fought the Third Burawa-Orma War over the western territory of Orma, a ethenically split region of Burawi and Ormati people. The Diigaluu dynasty that had been placed by the Breislandic Empire after the War of the Second Coalition had continued to grown unpopular. Orma, unlike Burawa and Jarin had remained primarily agrarian and had a feudal system that was fragmented. Orma had lost considerable territory during the conflict and had it's western territory annexed into the new region of Maianka-Orma.
Transitional Period (1905 - 1924)
* Burawa, Dakare, Ayorin, Maianka-Orma had become unhappy with national party * Socialists win seats in national parliaments * Leaders become weary of socialist power attempts to squash opposition * Wada Party established * Wada party gains majority in 4/6 nations * Burawa fights in random wars, Faheya unstable * Socialists take control of Burawa national parliament in 1924 with Wada coallition, force a constitution re-write, splitting Burawa from the Burawa State. * Burawa State becomes the Kaftian Republic -> Socialists take over the Kaftian republic, Kushish, Maianka and Faheya leave * Ayorin declares independence, remains socialist, adhering with Burawa * Burawa fights a war with Kushish and replaces it with socialist government
1924 Burawi Revolution
The 1924 Burawi Revolution was a political movement that reorganized the nation of Burawa, had established the new constitution of Burawa that created the Republic of Burawa, and formally withdrawing Burawa from the Burawa State.
Manaa Kadar, the prime minister at the time, had assumed the role of Leader of the Burawa Republic the nation had started major restructuring of various elements of life. The initial transition into socialism was very gradual, as Manaa Kadar had instituted a 3, 1-year long agendas to roll out reforms. These agendas, known as the Kankadadka Plan (1926), Qallahere Plan (1927) and Khabale Plan (1928), would be used to gradually nationalize and socialize the economy.
The Kankadaka Plan was mostly focused on the improvement of civil rights and re-organization of government; granting all citizens over 18 the right to vote, establishing kadarist thought in the political system, and creating the modern parliamentary system of Burawa. The Qallahere plan worked on improving working conditions and nationalizing major private institutions such as oil and railways. The final plan, the Khabale Plan was the redistribution of wealth and socialization of all land within Burawa. The final plan, which was the most drastic, had been a rallying call for the remaining capitalists factions to wage a Civil War against the Wada Government. Many landlords and capitalists were brutally executed as part of The Great Burawi Classicide as many had been captured and tried as enemies of the state. Some wealthy individuals were spared as part of plea deals and as bargaining chips in restoring order. The civil war ended with the Wada party as the clear winner. Even so, there had been a compromised made given to the remaining spared capitalists, a creation of a self-governing territory of Burawa, known as Mazar.
Great Adonian War
After the end of the Great Adonian War, Burawa, still under Manaa Kadar had attempted to further expand it's economic and social growth by instituting policies such as the Five cities plan as well as it's foreign influence, first creating the Kaftian Defense Pact and later the Kaftian Union. Burawa had also attempted to restore relations with socialist nations outside the Kaftian sphere but had failed to succeed over issues between leadership. Burawa at this time had started to involve itself heavily with nation-building, helping fund and even send their own military to assist in the creation of more socialist governments over Kaftia and the new world.
After Manaa Kadar's death in 1955, the Wada party had continued to decrease in influence and power, because of Burawa's multi-party parliament, which was unique to socialist states at the time, many other more reform and isolationist parties had become popular among the citizens of the nation. Anti-Kadarist factions had also started to spring up underground, such as the Buurawati Restoration Movement. The movement was funded by foreign capitalists with previous assets in Burawa, with most operations being done in Mazar.
The Wada Party lost control of the Maamulaha Bartamaha in 1958, the lower house in 1960 and the senate in 1964. The front-running party of the time had then become theReform Party, lead by Kunciil Hanad. Hanad's government had been much more isolationist and aggressive in their measures, closing Burawa off to much trade besides from Oil and natural gas exports and automotive imports. Hanad had proposed a nation of self-reliance, utilizing much of its capital from oil sales towards developing the nation's chemical, industrial, and technological industries. The nation had also created propoganda campaigns to steal intellectual talent from abroad without actively exporting socialist thought.
Because of the loss of economic and military support from Burawa, many of their satellite and partner states in Kaftia had started to falter under pressures from capitalist revolutionaries.

Geography and Climate
Largest cities or towns of Burawa
2015 Census of Burawa
Burawa has an urbanization rate of 75.9% with an approximate urban population of 88,282,221. Burawa has 16 cities with a population over one million, with many of them and their metropolitan areas part of a greater Metropolitan conurbation. Metropolitan conurbation consists of approximately 44 million or 50% of all people who live in urban areas. Metropolitian conurbations geographically and economically interconnected region of multiple metropolitan areas. These areas special planning authorities and funding statutes that are controlled by sub-provincial bodies. Cities and towns in non-conurbations are usually subject to the direct authority of the provinces they operate under. Burawa has been slowly continuing to urbanize, primarily in the rural regions of Banda and Edamka, which have had an urbanization rate of 12% and 14% per year, respectively.
Independent cities are regions of Burawa that are designated by the government with no provincial authority mandated over them. They are either controlled directly by the government or are given special administrative rights over themselves. There are currently only three independent cities in Burawa: Kankadadka, the capital of Burawa, Mazar, and Lambdia.
The city of Kankadadka is a special administrative city run directly by a special ministry in Burawa. The cities of Mazar and Lambdia are classified as Free Economic Zones, which are designated spaces where most industries (excluding transportation and infrastructure) are not subject to normal forms of taxation, tariffs or other particular administrative policy.

Parties and Elections
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 415,047 active and 1,500,000 reserve service members, Burawa is considered both a major regional and military power. Burawa since its foundation has had compulsory military training and service for its citizens starting at the age of 18 for two years. Since 1990, college students and persons involved in grant-funded independent research are able to forgo training and participate in a Combined Educational Service Program for two years.
The Burawi military primarily relies on a combination of high-tech weapons systems and satellite/air defense networks to keep and maintain its sovereignty over its disputed territories as well as provide support to partner nations in the Pan-Kaftian Defense Network.
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.
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.
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 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. Its first satellite, Kaxarey-1 was launched in 1969 and doing so became the fourth country to independently launch one. Burawa sent its 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.
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.
International Development Banks
Burawa since 1984 has established numerous International Development Banks to promote the development and growth of the economies of primarily Kaftian nations. Currently Burawa solely operates the Southern Kaftian Development Bank, Central Kaftian Development Bank, Greater Fosian Development Bank, and currently is a member of 8 other regional development banks.
