2006 World Factbook Available

The 2006 CIA World Fact Book is a great source of basic information about most countries of the world. The 2006 edition is the first to includes information about the European Union. The country profiles describe the country's geography, people, government, economy, communications, transportation, military, transnational issues (such as refugees and illicit drugs).

The rank order page ranks the countries in all of the above categories as well. Check out which country has the most cellular phones in use, the highest population, or the lowest public debt.

The book may be used online, downloaded or purchased in print. The online version is updated throughout the year.

Thanks to beSpacific and TVC Alert for news of the updated version.
