If you plan to buy a globe this holiday season…

…make sure you buy one that includes South Sudan.  South Sudan gained its independence from the northern part of Sudan on July 9, 2011, making it the newest country in the world.  New flag, new anthem, new capital city, new international dialing code, new currency, and new borders!   Visit the CIA World Factbook for information about this new country and make sure the maps and globes you are buying as gifts for others or for yourself include this update.
