As shown in the Burundi Political Map, Burundi is a landlocked country in east-central Africa, bordered on the north by Rwanda, on the east and south by Tanzania, and on the west by the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The national capital, Gitega, is clearly shown on the map. It was moved from the city of Bujumbura (which is near Lake Tanganyika) to Gitega, which is 39 miles (63 km) further inland, in January 2019.

The Burundi Political Map highlights the major cities, provinces and their capitals, and national and international boundaries of the nation.

One of the smallest countries in Africa, Burundi is divided into eighteen provinces. On March 26, 2015, the eighteenth province of Rumonge was created by taking five communes from Bururi and Bujumbura Rural provinces. The provinces are Cankuzo, Gitega, Rutana, Ruyigi, Karuzi, Kayanza, Kirundo, Muyinga, Ngozi, Bururi, Makamba, Rumonge, Bubanza, Bujumbura Mairie, Bujumbura Rural, Cibitoke, Muramvya, and Mwaro.

Burundi is a unitary dominant-party presidential constitutional republic. The President of Burundi is both head of state and head of government. Évariste Ndayishimiye is the president of the nation since June 18, 2020.

Burundi is a densely populated country with a majority of the population living in extreme poverty and hunger. Poor education, unhygienic living conditions, scarcity of food, water, and medical facilities, and corruption are other major problems. HIV/AIDS is rampant in Burundi and continues to tear its economy apart.
