It was located in northern Africa immediately south of Egypt. It shared boundaries with Italian East Africa and the Red Sea on the east, French Equatorial Africa on the west, and extending to the northern borders of Kenya, Uganda, and the Belgian Congo.

The capital of the territory was Khartoum. The principal products of the colony were gum Arabic and cotton. Population was over 6 million people and covered an area of approximately 970,000 square miles.

The Condominium was administered by a Governor-General. Laws and regulations were made by the Governor-General in Council. The Flags of both Egypt and Great Britain flew over the Sudan during this time.ar:السودان الأنجلو مصري de:Anglo-Ägyptischer Sudan
