Myanmar in brief

Destination Myanmar, a Nations Online country profile of the Southeast Asian nation also known as Burma and the Golden Land. Myanmar has a long coastline along the Bay of Bengal, the Gulf of Mottama and the Andaman Sea in the south. It borders China in the north and northeast, Laos and Thailand in the east, and Bangladesh and the Indian states of Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram in the northwest.

The country covers an area of 676,578 km², making it almost twice the size of Germany or slightly smaller than the US state of Texas.

Myanmar has a population of 54 million people (2021 est.). Largest city, former capital, and economic center of Myanmar is Yangon (Rangoon). Since 2005 Burma's new (administrative) capital is Naypyidaw, a planned city in the country's central part.
Spoken languages are Burmese (official); Kachin, Kayah, Karen, Chin, Mon, Rakhine, and Shan are major regional languages. Rohingya, the language of the Rohingya people from Rakhine State is spoken by about 1.3 million. According to the United Nations, the Rohingya are one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. In 2017 hundreds of thousands of Rohingya fled from western Myanmar into neighboring Bangladesh because of the repression and violence they face in Myanmar.

Geography
The highest elevation in Myanmar and Southeast Asia is Mount Hkakabo Razi (Khaka Borazi), at 5,881 m (19,295 ft). The mountain is located in Kachin state near the country's northern border with China, about 110 km (70 mi) north of the city of Putao.
Burma's main rivers are the Chindwin (the 'Mighty Chindwin') and the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady).

Background:

Flag of National League for Democracy
The fighting peacock flag
Previously an independent kingdom, Burma was annexed by the British Empire into the colony of India in 1886. The occupation brought social, economic, cultural and administrative changes to the once-feudal society. The Japanese Empire, supported by the Burmese Independence Army, invaded and occupied (British) Burma during World War II and nominally declared the colony independent as the State of Burma (1942). In 1945, however, Burma returned to British control until the country's independence in 1948.

In 1962, an army coup led by Ne Win overthrew the government and established an authoritarian state. From 1962 to 2011, the country was ruled by a military junta with absolute power. The country's name was changed to Myanmar in 1989 by the ruling military government, officially recognized by the United Nations. Some national governments, such as Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and much of the Burmese population, do not recognize this name change since they do not recognize the military government.

Despite multiparty elections in 1990 that resulted in the main opposition party winning a decisive victory, the military junta refused to hand over power.

Key opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi has been set under house arrest from 1989 to 1995 and was again placed under house detention in September 2000; her supporters were routinely harassed or jailed or killed.

In 2011, the military junta was dissolved following a general election in 2010, and a civilian government has been installed. Since April 2016, Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of the National League for Democracy of Myanmar, is the incumbent State Counsellor and plays a vital role in the government, but her influence is relatively weak. Her international reputation was damaged after hundreds of thousands of Rohingya fled to Bangladesh as the Burmese army destroyed villages and killed members of the unwanted Rohingya Muslim minority.

On 8 November 2020, general elections were held in Myanmar, and Aung San Suu Kyi's party (NLD) won the majority. But the military-backed opposition has demanded a re-run of the election. In February 2021, Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior figures from the ruling party were detained by the military. Protests erupted on the streets of the country's major cities against Min Aung Hlaing's orchestrated military coup.

Political system of Myanmar
Since 29th March 2011, when Burma's military handed over power, the country is ruled by a nominally civilian government. But the military retains a considerable amount of control in government and parliament.
In 2008 the country adopted a new constitution, but some critics say it is "less a charter for democracy than the generals' retirement plan." [1]
In March 2016, the first democratically elected government went into session after more than fifty years of brutal military rule. But Aung San Suu Kyi, the trailblazer of the pro-democracy movement, was barred by the constitution from becoming president.
In February 2021, a coup d'état, staged by Min Aung Hlaing (a mediocre general of the Burma Army), changed the country's political landscape again, with an uncertain future.
After the military took over the government and declared a state of emergency, General Min Aung Hlaing is now head of state. He established a State Administrative Council as the executive government body with 16 members (8 civilian and 8 military), headed by him.

Economy of Myanmar
Myanmar's economy is among the least developed in the region and is essentially agricultural. About 70% of the labor force is employed in agriculture, 7% in industry, and 23% in services.

Since Burma began its transition to a civilian-led government in 2011, the country has embarked on economic reforms to attract foreign investment and integrate into the global economy. The government enacted a new anti-corruption law in September 2013 and granted licenses to 13 foreign banks. In October 2016, Myanmar passed a Foreign Investment Law that consolidates investment regulations and relaxes rules on foreign ownership of companies.
The country's abundant natural resources and young workforce have since attracted foreign investment in the energy, apparel and information technology sectors.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Myanmar
There are two cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Myanmar. Additionally, 15 properties are listed in UNESCO's Tentative List, an inventory of those properties which each State Party intends to consider for nomination. (see the List of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Myanmar).

World Heritage Sites are natural or man-made sites, areas or monuments that are recognized as being of outstanding international importance and therefore deserve special protection. Sites are nominated and designated by the World Heritage Convention (an organization of UNESCO).

World Heritage Site Bagan
Bagan is a sacred landscape featuring an exceptional range of Buddhist art and architecture that demonstrates centuries of the cultural tradition of the Theravada Buddhist practice of merit-making (Kammatic Buddhism). The property includes numerous temples, stupas, monasteries and places of pilgrimage, as well as archaeological remains, frescoes, and sculptures. Hundreds of places of worship are the spectacular testimony of the zenith of the Bagan civilization (11th-13th century AD) when the complex was the capital of a regional empire.

World Heritage Site Pyu Ancient Cities
The Pyu city-states were a series of city-states that existed from about the 2nd century BC to about the mid-11th century in what is now central Myanmar. The heritage site includes the remains of the walled cities of Halin, Beikthano and Sri Ksetra in the vast irrigated landscapes in the dry zone of the Irrawaddy River basin. The city-states were founded by Pyu people, the earliest inhabitants of Burma, of whom records are extant.

Burmese landscapes
Myanmar is endowed with great biogeophysical diversity. There are the coastal areas along the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea in the south, the densely populated Irrawaddy Delta and the tropical evergreen forests with Malay fauna and flora. The Chin Hills-Arakanto mountain range covered by mountain forests forms a natural border with India in the West. In central Myanmar are the irrigated fields of the dry zone of the Ayeyawady River and in the far north are the snow-capped mountains with the flora and fauna of the Himalayas. The central western part is dominated by the Shan Highland. Myanmar's two major rivers are the Chindwin and the Irrawaddy River.
