Published by Firefly Books Ltd., 2006.


This revised edition of Firefly's World Factbook contains articles and maps for all countries of the world, arranged in alphabetical order.

  • Up-to-date maps and information for all 192 nations;
  • Concise, cross-referenced articles on geography, climate, vegetation, economy, history and politics;
  • Colour annotated maps showing principal cities, roads, railroads, and border crossings;
  • National flags and stamps, with origins explained;
  • Climate graphs for major cities in each country;
  • Updated, at-a-glance charts showing area, population, capital city, government, ethnic groups, languages, religions and currency;
  • Ready-reference tables with up-to-date statistics.
Special sidebars, “Did You Know,” offer interesting and intriguing facts. For example, Icelanders do not have family names and are properly addressed by their first names; Panama hats are made in Ecuador, not Panama; and Germany was the first country to build freeways.

Firefly's World Factbook is a ready resource of information for the home or office — an A-Z reference guide to every country in the world.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
