South Sudanese Cultures
In 2011, Sudan split in half and South Sudan emerged. The country is about the size of the state of Texas, and its landscape includes savanna, marshland, and rain forests. A wide range of wildlife lives in South Sudan, including elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, monkeys, and cranes. The largest ethnic group and the largest tribe in South Sudan is the Dinka (36 percent), followed by the Nuer (16 percent). While South Sudanese are proud to be an independent nation, pride for ethnic group affiliation typically passes national identity. In South Sudan, integrity is a respected character trait.
