Answer

Country Information can be found in many places.  One good place to search a large amount of information at one time (books, articles, media) is our SuperSearch--the main search box on our homepage.

Databases
We also have a number of databases specifically targeted to country information. These can be found under the "Find a Database" under the first tab on the homepage. You will see an alphabetical list of all databases in our collection.
Here are some that might be useful:
Business Source Complete (Company Search Interface) -- use Country Reports under the Browse box on the right side of the page
Mergent Online--use Country Profile in bottom right corner of the page
Europa World
Lexis Nexis-- click on the Search by Content Type box at top right then click Country Information at the bottom.  Enter the country you are looking for.
