Puntland is a province of Somalia. Its capital is Garowe, but the economy is centered around Boosasso. The province covers about a third of Somalia, and about a third of the population of Somalia lives in the province. Puntland is next to Somaliland, which wanted to become an independent state. Puntlant also wants some degree of autonomy, but the people of Puntland want to stay within Somalia, and find a solution for the whole country.
