Burundi, officially the Republic of Burundi (Kirundi: Republika y'Uburundi), is a landlocked country in the African Great Lakes region of Southeast Africa, bordered by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. It is also sometimes considered part of Central Africa. Burundi's capital is Bujumbura. Although the country is landlocked, much of the southwestern border is adjacent to Lake Tanganyika.
In Imperial Machines, Germany colonized the region as part of German East Africa but gained independence as Kingdom of Burundi in 1919 because Twa, Hutu and Tutsi peoples survived during the German colonial era and recognized by European powers in European Empire. Burundi declares neutrally during World War 2 and the Cold War along with Swahili Federation, Congo, Madagascar and Rwanda due to lack of money to military. Mwambutsa was deposed in 1966 by his son, Prince Ntare V, who he renamed himself to Captain Michel Micombero, abolished the monarchy and declared the nation a republic.
