Sudan is just South of Egypt. 41,087,825 people live in Sudan. Sudan's land area is huge. Its 2,505,813 square kilometers. The GDP per capita is $2,200. Not a very rich country. I don't see why considering the U.S. sends them money all the time.
Sudan Boarders the Red Sea. The Red Sea is one of the saltiest bodies of water ever because of its evaporation rate. This is the sea which Moses parted to free the Jews from Egypt.
Unfortunately, Sudan has many civil war type conflicts that have been going on for a couple decades. Its horrible; rebel groups will kidnap children from rural villages and use them for their army. It has something to do with religion and the government
So for now I'd suggest to stay out of Sudan for a while. Unless your a peace keeper trying to make this country a better non-civil conflict place.
