Sudan, officially known as the Republic of Sudan or the Republic of the Sudan, is an African country located northeast of the continent. Until the independence of South Sudan it was the largest country in Africa.
It is an eminently flat country. There are many different ethnic groups living together. It is generally a young population, with high birth and infant mortality rates. Although the average population density is low, it increases along the Nile.
Sudan was one of the poorest countries in the world and its economy maintained the characteristics of underdevelopment. Agriculture remains the country’s main economic resource, employing 80 per cent of the economically active population. The main commercial crop is cotton, which accounts for about half of the exports. The main subsistence crops are durra, millet, maize and cassava.
