Plans for the Southern Sudan urban redesign project suggest a mammoth nationwide undertaking in celebration of its anticipated independence next year. The government intends to reorganize and rebuild its 10 state capitals for about $10.1 billion.

The money will fund the conversion of impoverished neighborhoods into zoned cities in the shapes of symbolically-chosen animals and fruit. As part of the Southern Sudan urban redesign project, Juba, for instance, will become a rhinoceros, while Wau will become a giraffe.
