The World Factbook

The World Factbook is a one-stop reference site.

Although many of the facts presented in The Factbook may be found in various other publications, they are conveniently gathered together in one place only at The World Factbook Web site.

It is collected from - and coordinated with - a wide variety of US Government agencies, as well as from hundreds of published sources.
