Your Nation
http://www.nationmaster.com/index.php
GRADE LEVEL: 7-12

CONTENT:
Discover just how different (or similar) two countries can be by using the remarkable features at Your Nation. This site allows users rank and compare statistics from every country in the world.

AESTHETICS:
The site is fairly plain, but features Macromedia flash movies for information delivery.

ORGANIZATION:
Your Nation features a handy navigational bar at the left side of the pages. A Macromedia Flash plugin is needed to view the information on the main site, but an alternative image based version is also provided for older browsers that do not support Macromedia Flash.

REVIEW:
Your Nation is a unique resource that shows the similarities and differences between countries graphically. At this time Your Nation offers three choices of ways to view the information stored on the site. Users can choose to Compare, Rank, or Summary the data by clicking on the appropriate button in the left menu bar. Users then can choose the type of data and the countries to display. The information is displayed in graphs and charts. Users can modify the search parameters by clicking on Settings. Users that register to join the site can have customized settings remembered. The site promises that it will soon offer new features such as interactive maps, and greater user flexibility. This is a great research tool.
