Fun Facts from the CIA

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), was formed in 1947 in the National Security Act. It is a civilian intelligence agency whose primary function is to collect and analyze information about foreign governments, corporations, and persons in order to advise public policymakers. Every year they publish a fact book about every country in the world, that is available online for free.
