The CIA World Factbook

February 23, 2007

Whatever else you might think about the CIA, they provide a great reference service containing a wealth of information, updated regularly, on countries around the world. They begin each country’s information with a map and general introduction. Categories of information that follow include: geography, people, government, economy, communications, transportation, military and transnational issues. These headings might sound dry but the information is very helpful whether you’re doing a report for school or familiarising yourself before traveling. The added bonus when reading about a country is the ever-present tingle one gets from imagining how the cloak and dagger world might otherwise use this information.
