In addition to my usual CIA factbook I finally discovered Nationmaster.

Part of services are paid, but comparison of countries by single factor is free.

several examples:

GDP per capita
Military expenditures % from GDP

internet users per capita
cell phones per capita

But the most horrific fact I found there, was that
Japan has a second large number of Mac-Donalds in the world

- У вас есть яйца?
- Есть.
- Тогда дайте мне десяток батонов колбасы. (c)
