The result of the move request was: Move to States of South Sudan - "States" is more consistent with other similar articles and is more specific. Neelix (talk) 20:39, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Subdivisions of South Sudan → States of South Sudan – There is a separate page for counties of South Sudan, and this page primarily concerns states of South Sudan. Most other countries, including (North) Sudan, have analogous pages with more specific names for the type of first-level administrative subdivision in question (e.g. States of Sudan). Regions seem to be based off of historic provinces, and though they retain some geographic significance, I question whether the fact that this page lists regions as well as states precludes it from having a more specific title - especially considering that these historic provinces/regions aren't actually considered administrative subdivisions according to the constitution. -Kudzu1 (talk) 04:55, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Agree - I don't think it's controversial, if I was admin I'd have just done it, as non admin apparently it needs to wait 7 days.EdwardLane (talk) 09:04, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Comment are these divisions actually called "states" or are they something else? (like provinces) Before independence and after independence could change terminology. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:16, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
The constitution calls them states. -Kudzu1 (talk) 06:25, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Support yes, that's what the page is about. —innotata 19:01, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

According to this article 28 sates have been established in place of the former 10. “The Establishment Order No. 36/2015 AD for the creation of the new South Sudan states” was passed in October 2015, and in November the South Sudanese parliament empowered President Kiir to create new states. Finally in December Kiir appointed governors for the new 28 states. Aotearoa (talk) 18:15, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
