Depending on the kind of information you need, encyclopedias are usually a great place to start for basic information on countries.
We have an encyclopedia database called "Gale Virtual Reference Library" that can be found on our homepage under "Top Databases" or on our full database list. Doing a search for your country in that database will come up with multiple encyclopedia articles.
The CIA World Factbook also provides excellent information about countries, including economic figures, cultural facts and geography notes.
This should get you started, but if you need more information, we're always here to help!
