It is located about 40 kilometers southeast of Bor, and serves as the county headquarters for Bor South County.[2] Cuei-keer figures in a popular saying as the southernmost boma of Greater Bor, which runs "from Cuei-keer to Cuei-thon."[3][4]

The data collected during the Fifth Population and Housing Census of Sudan were to be the primary source of information for decisions about the number and demarcation of electoral constituencies and administrative boundaries in what was then southern Sudan. South Sudanese officials rejected census results for southern Sudan.
