Description: South Sudan is the world’s newest country. It was a hard-won fight for independence that followed decades of war. The war began with the discovery of oil and the belief that economically the country of Sudan would be able to rid itself of its Christian African inhabitants. Years of genocide and ethnic cleansing followed leaving South Sudan with little except for its vast reserves of oil.
