I really dig this app! Love the resizable flags. I, too, wish the text would wrap. I had to drag it open, push it offscreen to the left, drag it more... just to read everything. But, hey, it's free. And looks, feels, great otherwise. The quick link to the web is cool too.

Excellent. A 2nd download sight! Big thumbs up to the provider of the mirror ;) ! Now that I have all 165kb of the app, I like it a lot. Very neat and clean, w/a small footprint. The flag and map "drawers"/popups are a sweet touch. I second the recommendation for text wrapping. Or, someone could buy Me a bigger monitor. ;) A cool,educational, free, app. 4 stars.

I'd love to download it, but as pointed out, the site regularly exceeds it's bandwidth allocation. The developer should submit it to the MIT info-mac arhive. http://www.info-mac.org/how/submit.html Doing so would take nothing away from Macupdate, and would allow people, unfettered access to the software. PEACE

Very nice. The only thing is that if a line of text is too long, the program can't wrap the text and put a scrollbar. For instance, check out Niue's religions--I had to drag the window all the way to the left and then resize the windown by widening all the way to the right twice before being able to read it completely. Otherwise, totally sweet. It would also be cool if you could do a search for a country instead of just having to pick one from the menu

Succinct. Excellent for those who desire brevity. Nice interface. How does one update? Keep in mind this is what the CIA wants you to know.
