South Sudan is divided into 10 states. They 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 states are further divided into 86 counties.

Regions[edit]

Bahr el Ghazal[edit]

The Bahr el Ghazal region in northwest South Sudan includes the states of:

  1. Northern Bahr el Ghazal
  2. Western Bahr el Ghazal
  3. Lakes
  4. Warrap

According to the disputed 2008 census conducted under the Republic of the Sudan,[1] Western Bahr al Ghazal is the least populous of South Sudan's states.[2]

Equatoria[edit]

The Equatoria region in southern South Sudan includes the states of:

  1. Western Equatoria
  2. Central Equatoria
  3. Eastern Equatoria

The state capital of Central Equatoria, the smallest South Sudanese state by area, is Juba, which also serves as the national capital of South Sudan.

Greater Upper Nile[edit]

The Greater Upper Nile region in northern and eastern South Sudan includes the states of:

  1. Jonglei
  2. Unity
  3. Upper Nile

Jonglei is the largest state of South Sudan by area, as well as the most populous, according to the 2008 census.

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.[4] The Sudan Tribune reported on 1 January 2015 that Machar appointed "military governors" for several of his declared states.[5]
