More Information about Burkina Faso

With its 18,365,123 people, Burkina Faso is the 59th largest country in the world by population. It is the 75th largest country in the world by area with 274,200 square kilometers.

Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta) achieved independence from France in 1960. Repeated military coups during the 1970s and 1980s were followed by multiparty elections in the early 1990s. Current President Blaise COMPAORE came to power in a 1987 military coup and has won every election since then. There have been increasing protests over the belief that the president may try to run for a currently unconstitutional third term in the 2015 presidential elections. Burkina Faso's high population growth and limited natural resources result in poor economic prospects for the majority of its citizens.

Languages spoken: French (official), native African languages belonging to Sudanic family spoken by 90% of the population
