South Sudan. A failed state.

South Sudanese citizens wave their flags as they attend the Independence Day celebrations in the capital Juba

In the beginning;

A few years ago, the greater Sudan used to be a country of conflict. Since 1956, they have always been in a civil war having peace for only a period of 10 years between 1972 to 1983 after which, another civil war begun.
