In case you haven't memorized your African geography yet I have bad news, because there's a new country on the way. That's right, Africa's long painful experience with figuring out why the fuck Europe made their borders randomly cut out shapes has resulted in some more sorting out of the whole damn mess with the splitting of Africa's biggest country, Sudan, into two!
The last new country we got was Kosovo (no matter what any Serb and Greek users might want to say to the contrary lol). And that was 2008. This new country is pretty similar in more then a few ways.
The new country to be? Southern Sudan, or at least that's what they intend on calling it I guess. Kind of uncreative I dunno. And I don't know if Sudan normal will keep calling itself "Sudan" or now "Northern Sudan".
Anyway it's all gonna be voted on (independence) this coming Sunday, and all observers including the bitter North are pretty much in agreement that independence will be voted for.
Some Facts too kno aboot are new friend:
People: Various tribes, namely Dinka.
Why they Leave: Because the big mean North and them have nothing in common except a gross imbalance of influence in the government and infrastructure, and the North wants to keep the region under it's thumb for resources and all that (oil and water). North and South are culturally and religously different too which always makes things cool. So no this is nothing like Korea.
here's what it should look like, so update yer books! and get ready for some future conflicts
