Maps of South Sudan

Um. I like maps.  Just a little.

A map of all the States and Counties in South Sudan, from 2009.  This may not be 100% accurate as the counties are still evolving and changing names and borders, but is more or less up to date:

South Sudan Counties, 2009

And stolen from wikipedia, a map of Sudan as a whole, pre-split:

Sudan map, north and south, from 2006

Colors correlate as:

Green = Darfur
Pink = Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile
Orange = North Sudan
Blue = South Sudan
Purple = Eastern Front, area of operations July 2006
Yellow = Abyei, as defined by the Permanent Court of Arbitration (disputed territory.  see: oil/politics/tribal clusterfuck area)

Another map, because it’s pretty and shows that South Sudan isn’t just one big desert:

South Sudan map - physiographic zones (note: counties/borders are out of date)

And one more to show the population distribution because that’s fun:

South Sudan Population Distribution, 2009
