The States of South Sudan were created out of the three historic former provinces (and contemporary regions) of Bahr el Ghazal (northwest), Equatoria (southern), and Greater Upper Nile (northeast). The 28 states are further divided into 180 counties.

In October 2015, South Sudan's President Salva Kiir Mayardit issued a decree establishing 28 states in place of the 10 previously established states.[1] The decree established the new states largely along ethnic lines.[citation needed] A number[who?] of opposition parties challenged the constitutionality of this decree and the decree was referred to parliament for approval as a constitutional amendment.[2] In November the South Sudanese parliament approved the creation of the new states.[3] In January 2017, President Salva Kiir decreed a further subdivision of the country from 28 into 32 states.[4]

States of 2017-present[edit]

On January 14th 2017, President Kiir issued a presidential decree that increased the number of federal states from 28 to 32.

  1. - The now defunct Eastern Nile State was split into 2 individual states, Central Upper Nile State containing Malakal as it's capital city. Northern Upper Nile State containing Renk as a capital city.
  1. - Maiwut State was formed and split from Latjoor State in the Greater Upper Nile Region retaining Koma, Longuchuk, and Maiwut counties.
  1. - Tumbura State was formed and split from Gbudwe State, with Tumbura as its capital. It comprises Tumbura and Nagero counties in the Equatoria Region.

Rebel declaration[edit]

On 22 December 2014, rebel leader and former vice president Riek Machar declared the 10 states of South Sudan dissolved and the formation of 21 new states in a federal system. The declaration was not recognised by the South Sudanese government.[7] The Sudan Tribune reported on 1 January 2015 that Machar appointed "military governors" for several of his declared states.[8]
