New Look for CIA's World Factbook

For more than 30 years, the CIA's World Factbook has been a reliable source of information on countries around the world. The online home of the Factbook was recently redesigned, the first significant upgrade since the web version appeared in 1997.
Among the major enhancements are downloadable and printable photos for nearly 100 countries, a "Did You Know?" section explaining the impact of the Factbook around the world, and built-in world rankings for many of the Factbook information fields.
Those information fields include:
  • communications
  • economy
  • geography
  • government
  • history
  • military
  • people
  • transnational issues
  • transportation
