Encyclopedia of the Nations

I found an excellent online geography reference site this week: Encyclopedia of the Nations.

The Encyclopedia of the Nations is a complete source for detailed information about one hundred ninety three countries in the world, information about the United Nations and the associated agencies, and World Leaders.
There is a section that focuses on the history and the development of the United Nations, its structure and purpose, developments by each of the United Nation's generals, and the achievements in the fields such as security and peace between nations.

The detailed nation profiles are categorized by continent and alphabetically arranged and consist of information about each country such as the population, history, ethnic groups, culture, language, transportation, government structure, technology, and contain notes about museums, media, libraries, technology, and much more. We also have information about national economies of most countries in Africa, Americas, Asia and the Pacific, and Europe which include the overview of economy, economic sectors, agriculture, poverty and wealth, working conditions, imports, exports, manufacturing, and much more.

Make sure to also vist for detailed information about countries' cultures and for recipes and other information for every country.
If you want to find a list of famous Brazilians, native plants of New Zealand, or the population of Togo, this is the place to look! I haven't checked out the Culture and Food sites yet, but they sound interesting.
