Overview

South Sudan, a landlocked country in Northeast Africa, gained independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011, following a 2005 agreement that ended Africa’s longest-running civil war. Made up of the 10 southern-most states of Sudan, South Sudan is known for its remarkable diversity, being home to over 60 different major ethnic groups. However, independence did not bring an end to conflict in the country. Civil war erupted in 2013 when the president and vice president fell out, leading to a protracted conflict that has resulted in the displacement of around four million people. The government type in South Sudan is a republic, with the president serving as the chief of state and head of government. The country’s economy is predominantly reliant on oil and agriculture, although it remains weak and underdeveloped. South Sudan is a member of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA). Despite its challenges, South Sudan continues to strive for stability and peace, ushering in hope for a brighter future for its population of approximately 11.5 million.
