The website Index Mundi is a free worldwide database with lots of social-economical information from almost all countries. Do you wanna know which country has more cellphones, or which country has more money per person, or more people older than 80? What about the biggest number of illiterates, or the countries that export more products? Or which countries have the biggest armies? It is all there.
One of the most interesting things about numbers (in my opinion of stupid person), is that if you quantify something, anything at all, including the number of steps you give from your bed to your door, or how many clicks you click in one day, as incredible as it may sound, by the end you will get a complete new vision of this something you decided to quantify, making yourself even able to predict the future of that something.
It allows us to say that with the right information, you can predict the future of anything, really anything, and these numbers about how the world is going on and all, can offer the possibility to make true predictions about the future of a particular country, about global economics, technological advancements and so forth.
So, what are you waiting for? Give a quick look at Index Mundi, who knows maybe you will find some primordial super plus standard behavior about all that is going to happen in the next 100 years and than you can use it on that small project of worldwide domination you have in your drawer?
