South Sudan officially the Republic of South Sudan and previously known as Southern Sudan, is a landlocked country in east-central Africa that is part of the United Nations sub-region of Eastern Africa.. Its current capital is Juba, which is also its largest city.
It's a beautiful country with lush green landscapes, fertile land, and is filled with natural resources. Yet it is a country that has suffered over 50 years of civil-war. The Republic of South Sudan was formed on July 9, 2011 after a long prolonged conflict between the North (now Sudan), and the South (now South Sudan).
South Sudan has also struggled with unifying the various people groups within its borders. There has been conflicts over land-disputes and tribal feuds, and a solution will take time and work.
Yet even in spite of this, South Sudan has hope for the future. There is a great push for development, and the nation is rich in natural resoures. So even though the war has left South Sudan very underdeveloped and struggling in the 21st century, there is hope that the people of South Sudan will be able to develop into a strong united nation.
