Write a bit of information about your favorite (existent) countries. Doesn't have to be a complete encyclopedia entry at this stage. Many people have simply copied in the CIA World Factbook entries, which is great (it's in the public domain; we don't use copyrighted material, of course). Below you can find countries listed alphabetically. You can also browse countries by their capital cities and by continent.
(Note that the below list contains both states and dependent territories. See country, state, nation state for some explanation of the difference between these. Note also that there is a home for dependent territories at dependent areas, and that anyone willing to brave the flames of ire may move said territories to that page.) :-)
