CIA World Factbook

Sometimes old tools are the best tools. I remember stumbling onto this great resource back in 1999 as we prepared for a trip to Peru. Ok, that's not so old, but it seems like the World Factbook has been a staple of mission teams for many years. You don't get information that would benefit your day-job in espionage, but this is a wonderful tool for quick reference on every country on the planet (and it was updated just last week). So, if you're preparing a trip for your teens or want to help your class pray for a missionary, here's the place to find everything from a color map to a .gif of the flag.
