Gapminder

Here's a slick flash application from Google which let's you visualize all kinds of data about all the world's countries. See how India's military budget is almost the same percentage of GDP as the US military budget but how we have only 85 phones per 1000 people as compared to 1223 in the US.

Best of all, if you notice the slider at the bottom, you'll notice that the chart can be viewed over a period of decades starting from 1975.

Fascinating!
