A massive central data source and a handy way to graphically compare nations. You can generate maps and graphs on all kinds of statistics, and select exactly which countries you want to include. For users looking for U.S. or local material this is not your best choice as it is mainly useful for making comparisons between nations. The data covers the eclectic and the mundane, but often hard to find, sorts of things such as numbers of soldiers, Olympic medals, tourists, English speakers or wall plug voltages. Users will also find profiles of individual countries including maps and flags.
