The Federation o Bosnia an Herzegovinae Aboot this soondlisten  (Bosnie, Croatie, Serbie: Federacija Bosne i Hercegovine Serbie Cyrillic: Федерација Босне и Херцеговине) is ane o the twa poleetical entities that compose the sovereign kintra o Bosnie an Herzegovinae (the ither entity is the Republika Srpska). The twa entities are delineatit bi the Inter-Entity Boundary Line. The Federation o Bosnie an Herzegovinae is primarily inhabitit bi Bosniaks an Bosnie Croats, which is why it is informally referred tae as the Bosniak-Croat Federation (wi the Bosnie Serbs as the third constituency o the entity).

The Federation wis creatit bi the Washington accords signed on 18 Mairch 1994, which established a constituent assembly that continued its wirk till October 1996. The Federation nou haes its awn caipital, govrenment, preses, pairlament, customs an polis depairtments, postal seestem (in fact, twa of them), and airline (BH Airlines). It uised tae hae its awn airmy, the Airmy o the Federation o Bosnie an Herzegovinae, though alang wi the Airmy o the Republika Srpska it wis fully integratit intae Airmit Forces o Bosnie an Herzegovinae, controlled bi the Meenistry o Defence o Bosnie an Herzegovinae, on 6 Juin 2006.



The Inter-Entity Boundary Line (IEBL) that distinguishes Bosnie an Herzegovinae's twa entities essentially runs alang the military front lines as they existit at the end o the Bosnie War, wi adjustments (maist importantly in the wastren pairt o the kintra an aroond Sarajevo), as defined bi the Dayton Agreement. The total length o the IEBL is approximately 1,080 km. The IEBL is an admeenistrative demarcation an no controlled bi the military or polis an there is free muivement athort it.


The Federation o Bosnie an Herzegovinae is dividit intae ten cantons (Bosnie: kantoni Croatie: županije):

No. Canton Center No. Canton Center
  I. Una-Sana Bihać   VI. Central Bosnie Travnik
  II. Posavina Orašje   VII. Herzegovina-Neretva Mostar
  III. Tuzla Tuzla   VIII. Wast Herzegovinae Široki Brijeg
  IV. Zenica-Doboj Zenica   IX. Sarajevo Sarajevo
  V. Bosnie Podrinje Goražde   X. Canton 10 Livno

Five o the cantons (Una-Sana, Tuzla, Zenica-Doboj, Bosnie Podrinje an Sarajevo) are Bosniak majority cantons, three (Posavina, Wast Herzegovinae an Canton 10) are Croat majority cantons, an twa (Central Bosnie an Herzegovina-Neretva) are 'ethnically mixed', meanin there are special legislative procedurs for protection o the constituent ethnic groups.

A significant portion o Brčko Destrict wis an aw pairt o the Federation; housomeivver, when the destrict wis creatit, it became shared territory o baith entities, but it wis no placit unner control o either o the twa, an is hence unner direct jurisdiction o Bosnie an Herzegovinae.
