    I came upon this website accidentally, but it is by far the most extensive accumulation of world facts. You can even click on which city is the drunkest. It's a keeper, so I thought I'd share. Great browsing when you get bored with the usual.

    Rankings, Records, Countries of the World

    Zimbabwe...lowest GDP per capita at $200.

    So if I wanted to live like a Zimbabwean, I'd work for three hours and then take the rest of the year off.
