South Sudan Map
South Sudan or officially Republic of South Sudan. It is the youngest nation in the world, as it only emerged in 2011 after a long civil strife. Its capital is Juba, with approximately 250,000 inhabitants, while the total population is about eight million.
The majority of the population is engaged in subsistence agriculture, but the country’s main wealth is oil from which it produces about 500,000 barrels per day, although it depends on pipelines and refineries in the North.
South Sudan is bordered to the north by Sudan, to the South by the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda and Kenya, to the East by Ethiopia, and to the West by the Central African Republic.
The northwest of the country is occupied by the Libyan desert and the Northeast by the Nubian desert that ends in the atbay mountains that reach 1780 mts of altitude. In the centre and south of the country, the Marra mountain range, the Kordofan plateau and, beyond the Nile, the first foothills of the Ethiopian massifs extend from East to West.
