Jubek State is the capital state of South Sudan. One of 28 states, Jubek is located in the Equatoria region. The national capital, Juba, is the largest city in Sudan. The state borders include Yei River State to the southwest, Amadi State to the west, Terekeka State to the north, and Imatong State to the east.



On 2 October 2015, the president of South Sudan issued a decree establishing 28 states in order to replace the 10 constitutionally established states. The decree established the new states mostly among ethnic lines. A number of opposition parties and civil society groups challenged the constitutionality of the decree, and these actions led to president Salva Kiir to take the decree to parliament for approval as a constitutional amendment. In November the South Sudanese parliament empowered President Kiir to create new states.
