factbook gem updated - scripts for the world factbook - 250+ country profiles

Hello, I’ve updated the factbook gem that lets you read (public domain) counrtry profile pages (from the CIA World Factbook) and turns the HTML into structured data (e.g. JSON or a nested ruby hash). Build yourself an Almanac in 30 lines of ruby, for example, or find out what countries have the most oil reserves or most cell phones or internet hosts and so on. Happy exploring the world w/ ruby. Cheers.
