Map of Republic of South Sudan

Your globes and wall maps will be obsolete as of July 9, 2011 when a new independent nation enters the world. It's South Sudan, born of a treaty between the factions that split the nation. The south, which is largely Christian, felt that independence was necessary to ensure religious freedom—given that most northerners are Muslim. This map shows the new nation... and also illustrates the climate differences between the dry Sahara north and the more fertile, wetter, south. From loststates.com
