What is the GDP of Germany?
How many people live in Brazil?

Application contains more than 50,000 facts (I stopped counting):
• For each of 256 countries & territories:
- official name, flag and ISO codes
- location in the world with a map
- capital and the largest city
- area, coastline and elevation
- neighbouring countries
- population, its density, and real-time growth
- official languages and currency
- GDP, its growth, and per capita
- labor force and unemployment
- trade balance from export and import
- time zones and DST transition
- number of mobile phones, and calling code
- adoption of internet and national top-level domain
- suicide rate, illiteracy, CO₂ emissions, and other random facts
- many more…
All facts are accessible after the purchase. However, the app also includes Statistics module that provides a new view of the same countries and the same vales. Small part of the Statistics module is included in original price, but unlocking all Statistics requires an additional payment.
After a significant pause in updates, here’s a new load of features:
• The app now includes a new group of facts related to society as researched by Social Progress Index 2016. These indexes are a good way to compare complex aspects of life in countries, like:
– Basic Human Needs
– Access to Education
– Ecosystem Sustainability
– Corruption, and more.
There are also several absolute metrics that are relevant to quality of life, for example:
– Suicide Rate
– Obesity Rate
– CO₂ Emissions
– Illiteracy, and more.
• Population and Economy data were updated to the latest values from 2016. As previously, the source is The World Factbook.
• Added largest city of every country and its population. In most countries, the largest city is it’s capital, but there are notable exceptions, for example New York City, Sydney, Dubai, or São Paulo.
• Some improvements were made also to Statistics module. Sorted lists of countries now include special entriesm which should help you to get better picture about the metrics, for example:
– European Union, for population and economy
– some U. S. States, like California, Texas, and Alaska
– several largest cities for their population and density
• World population will reach 7.5 billion people in few weeks. Watch it live within the app!
