Southern Sudan, map and flag from Wikipedia, below. Declared itself an independent nation on Jul 9, 2011.
Pictures above, below and background: a conference called in Philadelphia, at Temple University, in Dec 2011, to bring together all factions involved in the ongoing Sudanese genocides and other human rights abuses  in Sudan and South Sudan. The convener, Dr Abdel Gabar Adam, founder of Darfur Human Rights and adviser to Sudan Sunrise, is sitting below, with his hands raised, addressing the speaker.
The Kingdom of Northern Sudan was proclaimed on June 16, 2014 by US Army veteran, former congressional candidate in Virginia and neo-colonist Jeremiah Heaton rocks. He maintains that 1300 square kilometers of desert was previously unclaimed by either Sudan or Egypt. He is not limited by his imagination; he wants to turn the land into a food-producing area to alleviate world hunger. However, I hope he knows that the other Sudans are not getting along, and I really hope there is no oil in his country of North Sudan.
