"This physical map of Sudan and South Sudan is designed to be used as a piece of art, a general reference map or to track current events. Based on the latest GIS data, this map is one of a kind; a unique combination of reference tool and art. It will become an amazing focal point in your space for daydreaming or conversation. Sudan is geographically and culturally diverse. In the north, the Nile cuts through the eastern edge of the Sahara. The East and West are mountainous regions, and much of the rest of the country is comprised of savannahs, typical of much of central sub-Saharan Africa. South Sudan is bordered by Sudan to the north, Ethiopia to the east, Kenya to the southeast, Uganda to the south, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the southwest, and the Central African Republic to the west. It includes the vast swamp region of the Sudd, formerly a breakaway region of Sudan. South Sudan became an independent country in 2011. "
