The Nations Online Project :: Get In Touch with the World.
This week’s Website of the Week is The Nations Online Project. This site provides a superb collection of information and links about just about every country in the world. Search by country, continent or language. There are also some excellent articles on cities including Megacities and famous cities. Nations Online compliments the excellent statistically focused CIA World Factbook and the more culturally oriented A-Z of World Culture.
The Nations Online Project – is, among other things, a more or less objective guide to the world, a statement for the peaceful, nonviolent coexistence of nations. A statement in favor of cultural diversity and the free flow of information and knowledge across national, cultural and religious boundaries.
Nations Online Project is a pioneer in providing information about countries. It is actually as old as Google, and older than Wikipedia.
