Budapest San
Francisco Burundi Africa HISTORY GOVERNMENT RELIGION LANGUAGE ECONOMICS From the 16th century burundi was ruled by the minority Tutsi with the majority Hutu as their serfs. It was merged with Rwanda and controlled by Germany, as Deutsche Ostafrika, from 1884 and then transferred to Belgium in 1919. In 1946 it became a UN trust territory, split from Rwanda in 1959, and gained full independence on 1 July 1962. Three main branches are the same as ours Exusitive, Legislative, and Judicial leader is President Pierre NKURUNZIZA. And their government branches do the same thing as ours is the way they handle things About 60% of the population are Roman Catholic, 5% are Protestant, and about 10% are Muslim. The remainder practices indigenous religions or has no religious affiliation Burundi's official language is Rundi. Burundi has a literacy rate of 62% which i think is pretty good. One of its immigrant languages is from Rwanda. its population is 7,859,000 so if you do the math there's a total of 4,872,580 people that can read and wright. The (GDP) in Burundi is $3.152 billion in 2010 ranked 173rd. it has grown 4.5% since 2008 it had a labor force of 2.99 million in 2002. Also their main consumer goods are light consumer goods such as shoes, soap, food processing. their agricultural products are things such as coffee, cotton, tea, corn, bananas, beef, milk, hides and more. 3 ways the land has affected human settlement? 1. the three main rivers which are the Ruzizi, Malagarasi, and Ruvuvu and none of them are navigable National Parks and nature reserves are one reason they cant expand but its good that the diverse wildlife is protected but also limited due to dense settlement such as elephants, leopards, hippopotamuses, crocodiles, wild boars, antelope, monkeys, and flying lemurs. Birds, such as guinea hens, partridges, ducks, geese, quail, and snipe are particularly plentiful around the northeastern lakes. much of the land is used for crops and 43% of it is covered by forest so they would need logging teams to cut it down eventually to expand any more
