This pictorial diagram describes both physical and human characteristics of South Sudan. South Sudan is the world's newest country.
It is a rare opportunity that the world gets to witness the birth of a new nation. But with the birth of South Sudan, it seems the world was ready to welcome them in. After Sudan became free from Egypt and the United Kingdom in 1956, 39 of thier 55 years of freedom have been in war between the northern part and southern part of the country. It made sense to divide the two. They had different religion focuses, different terrain, and different ways of life. The split was based on a nation wide vote, which well over three million votes were cast. There was really no dispute about a border, one was already mad eby the land. The Sudan was a desert region and as you traveled South it turned into swamp and forests (apparently you can see the border clearly form an aerial view). The border was put in place and now the South Sudan is the 193 nation to join the United Nations. While the Sudan is much larger than the South Sudan, it seems this plan to seperate has worked for the better. Becoming a nation in July 2011, it recieved assistance from the U.N. in its period of transition. Overall, I think the South Sudan and the Sudan seperating was for the best. Now the countires are free to practice their own religions and lifestyles. All that is left to say is #Welcome193
South Sudan secceded from Sudan in 2011. North Sudan is Muslim, while South Sudan is Christian. This difference alone causes one t think of what impacts and consequences this new border will cause.
