Galmudug is a secular, decentralized state in the central region of Somalia. The administrative capital, south Galcayo, is based in the southern half of the city and district of Galkayo. To the north is Puntland, to the west is Ethiopia, and to the south and east is the rest of Somalia, presently control under Somali Transtional Federal Government. The name is a combination of Mudug and Galgaduud. Unlike the secessionist Somaliland region northwestern Somalia, Galmudug, like the northern Somali region of Puntland, is not trying to obtain international recognition as a seperate nation. It considers itself federal divison within a larger federal republic of Somalia, such as defined by the 2012 Federal Constitution(SFG).
