Countries of the world

This Silk site contains pages for all the United Nations member states. All capitals, Heads of State and Heads of Government are included.

Exploring the countries, cities and persons

Because all the pages in this site are linked together we can explore all the countries by their properties and relations. Some examples below.

1. Water in Africa

The amount of water in a country varies heavily. Below the total water area for all African countries is shown. The blue filter can be used to show the water area for other regions.

2. Male vs Female life expectancy around the world

How old people get varies around the world. In some countries the difference between men and women are big as we can see in the graph below.
