Sudan: Country in Northeast Africa
Sudan, officially the Republic of the Sudan, is a country in northeastern Africa. It is bordered by Egypt to the north, Libya to the northwest, Chad to the west, the Central African Republic to the southwest, South Sudan to the south, Ethiopia to the southeast, Eritrea to the east, and the Red Sea to the northeast. Sudan has a population of 43 million people and occupies a total area of 1,886,068 square kilometres, making it the third-largest country in Africa and also the third-largest in the Arab world. Before the secession of South Sudan from Sudan on 9 July 2011, the united Sudan was the largest country in Africa and the Arab world by area. Sudan's predominant religion is Islam, and its official languages are Arabic and English. The capital is Khartoum, located at the confluence of the Blue and White Nile. Since June 2011, Sudan is the scene of an ongoing military conflict in its southern states.
