How I Get Worldly

Fact BookIf the CIA has experienced some bad PR over the years, perhaps the World Factbook will go some way toward fixing the agency's rep.

World Factbook is the authoritative go-to place for in-depth information on every country on the planet, updated twice a month with new statistics, maps, and information that only the CIA has the resources to compile. The most interesting part of each country's description is at the end, under the heading "Transnational Issues." There you'll get the skinny on the CIA's opinion of what sorts of troubles are brewing in the nations of the world.
