___ Political Map of Sudan and South Sudan
|Map is showing Sudan, formerly Africa's largest country. Sudan was divided in 2011 into Northern Sudan, officially the Republic of the Sudan, with a predominantly Arab population and South Sudan, officially the Republic of South Sudan, formerly the southern part of the country (see the red demarcation line).
Southern Sudan was until 2011 an autonomous region within the Republic of the Sudan, with a population of about 8 million people of mainly African ethnic origin (Dinka, Nuer, Karo and other Nilotic tribes).

The Republic of the Sudan is located in north-eastern Africa between Egypt and Eritrea, bordering the Red Sea in north east.
It is bordered by Libya in north west, by Chad in west, by the Central African Republic in south west, by South Sudan in south and by Ethiopia in south east.
With an area of today 1,886,068 km², Sudan is the 16th largest country in the world, more than five times the size of Germany, or slightly less than one-fifth the size of the USA.
The country consists of a vast plain bordered on three sides by mountains: to the north east by the Red Sea Hills, to the west by the Marrah Mountains with Deriba Caldera (3,071 m) as the highest point in the country, desert dominates the north.
