CIA World Factbook - Get a "snapshot" of the world...
Town Compass® presents the CIA World Factbook 2005.
The United States has carried on foreign intelligence activities since the days of George Washington, but only since World War II have they been coordinated on a government-wide basis. The CIA World Factbook is one of three programs that have highlighted the development of coordinated basic intelligence since that time.
The World Factbook includes information on 271 countries, territories and other areas, with full-color maps and flags.
Recent confirmation that the United Kingdom Government administers the Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia on Cyprus as dependencies (and not as lease areas like the US Guantanamo Bay Naval Station in Cuba) has required a changing of their status and their addition to the Factbook as new entities.
The European Union has been included as an "Other" entity. The European Union continues to accrue more nation-like characteristics for itself and so a separate listing was deemed appropriate. A fuller explanation may be found under the European Union Preliminary statement.
The World Factbook now features five new fields. In the Economy category, entries have been added for Current account balance, Investment (gross fixed), Public debt, and Reserves of foreign exchange and gold. The Transnational issues category has a new Refugees and internally displaced persons entry.
Revision of some individual country maps is continued in this edition. Several regional maps have also been updated to reflect boundary changes and place name spelling changes.
Each country listing includes:
