In 1949, the newly-conquered Coliantia was in dire need of quick and efficient aerial transport, being that it is an island surrounded by large masses of sea. The powerful Air Ibbonia formed a Coliantian subsidiary on June 17, 1949, Air Coliantia, focused solely on developing a strong aerial fleet that can bring thousands of people to the "uncivilized" island. The company's first head was Nara Oaman, a wealthy Ibbonian businessman.
The company, with guidance from the powerful Air Ibbonia, became powerful and massive instantly. In just its third year, in 1951, it carried around a million passengers. By the end of the 1950s, it was at six million.

In 1974, following a plane crash in October which killed all 303 passengers and crew, the company signed a partnership with the Coliantian National Emergency Services, supplying the company with an abundant number of medical staff and equipment to ensure that no such accident may ever happen again. They also launched a policy of airplane inspection once every two months to ensure that the planes are in peak performance and will not break down while on air. Nevertheless, crashes still occurred, the largest of which was the 1998 Ichara crash which killed 213 people.

Gabi Pakito was a computer engineer who graduated in the University of Sulchi in 1984. After graduating, he struggled to find a job, and instead produced computers with his other colleagues, Poka Tikana and Tim Bokini, in his garage. In November 1985, they produced their first computer model, Patibo I. Despite the lack of experience in inventing and manufacturing a computer, as well as lack of budget, the Patibo I was at the same level as the famous computer models in the country at the time.
Seeing the potential, Pakito founded Blue Tech Corporation on March 4, 1986, named after the color of the first computer they made, and partnered with Abaka Inc., another computer company, to produce and manufacture units of Patibo I. The move was a success, as the new model performed great for its time. In their first year, the company had a revenue of $740,000.

Palo Bikami was a regular person in colonial Coliantia. In 1968, he graduated as a mechanical engineer in the Imakota University. Driven by the country's issue of the lack of automobiles and overreliance on horse-drawn carriages, he partnered with other Coliantian and Ibbonian engineers and technicians and founded Bikami Motors on March 25, 1969.
In 1969-70, the small group of engineers and technicians worked hard on trying to develop their first car model. Based on the Ibbonian Cala-2 Engine, they developed their first car model: the Bikami Breakthrough, a simple sedan. Like what the name suggested, the model was a breakthrough in the Coliantian automotive industry, selling over $2M worth of units throughout the country. The company put forth one of the greatest first steps in Coliantian history.

Fresh and delicious, just like how you want it.
Burger Island is a privately-owned fast food chain in Coliantia. It has built a reputation among the working class as an amazing fast food chain. Over time, its delicious burgers and fries have made Burger Island the largest fast food chain and one of the largest companies in the country.
Kenny Itchino is a wealthy Coliantian businessman during the 1960s. It owned one of the largest industrial companies at the time, Itchino Industries, and was making tons of revenue a year. In one faithful day of 1968, his colleague and friend Harry Intaka said to him how hard it is to buy and eat fast food in the country. Then on, he decided to make a fast food chain that would provide the average Coliantian easy access to fast food.
He founded Burger Island, Inc. on April 12, 1969. The first Burger Island restaurant was opened in Pakita. The fast food chain first served only regular hamburgers and cheeseburgers, french fries, and Ibbonian softdrinks. The restaurant proved successful among people who, most of them, have not eaten a burger in their life. In its first year of operation, the Pakita restaurant served over 150,000 burgers.
In 1970, the food chain opened its first branch in Sulchi and Tikaha. In the 1970s, they would add more well-known menu items, including the iconic Island Pounder burger, the chain's counterpart of real-life McDonald's' Big Mac. By the end of the decade, the food chain had established itself all around Coliantia's largest cities.
In the 1980s, it went on a commercial rivalry with Mikota's, another fast food chain. Regularly known as the Burger Wars, the two sides regularly launched commercials and other marketing strategies specifically aiming to attack each other. In 1987, Burger Island launched the infamous 'This One Sucks' commercial: "This one right here [pointing at the Island Pounder], this is delicious. This one, though [pointing at Mikota's' M3, or Mikota Meat Monster], this one sucks. It's simple." By the end of the decade, Mikota's would suffer commercial and financial struggles, with the massive success of Burger Island as one of the reasons, and would eventually lead to the company filing for bankruptcy in 2004.
From the 1990s up to today, Burger Island has established a powerful empire of restaurants not only in Coliantia, but also in Ibbonia. As of 2022, there are over 900 Burger Island restaurants established in the latter country. It has become the icon of the Coliantian middle class of the 20th century.
Over the past years, Burger Island has faced minor commercial struggles after the public movement to defeat obesity and create a healthier society. Riding at this route, the restaurant has since released healthy options at their menu items, even releasing vegan and vegetarian branches at cities over Coliantia.
In 2022, Burger Island made its first international establishment besides its Ibbonian presence by establishing a restaurant at the Feker Libi International Airport of Illdonya and in the Seorabeol Federation.
