Bechuana, officially the Republic of Bechuana, is a country located in Southern Dorissia, bordered by the Republic of Venda and Pemba to the north. Bechuana, a former Neustrian colony, was granted independence in 1955, but remained under de facto Neustrian rule as the minority ruling class of Neustrian roots maintained all political power in the country. A popular uprising in 1973 over land reform legislation saw the overthrowing of the government and the freeing up of elections. The first democratic elections were held in 1974, which saw President Mawala Nguwu elected as the first native President of Bechuana.
Once renowned as a champion for the anti-colonial cause, Nguwu, who remains in office as President to this day, is now seen as a repressive authoritarian responsible for human rights abuses.
