Status Update: Still Moving To Australia

That's right: Australia. The go-to reference here is, as always, the CIA. What's not to like? Unfortunately, although the spooks have updated the look of their website quite a bit, they don't seem to be inserting much editorial commentary between the statistics any more. I recall with particular fondness their informative "Five Reasons Guyana Sucks Compared To The US", their declaration of CIA headquarters in Langley as an independent state along the lines of the Holy See, and their initial denial of Factbook space to Azerbaijan on the grounds that it had been "fabricated from whole cloth by Syndicalists". It's hard to find good interns these days.
