Well, depends on the depth of information and the level of detail. Maybe a
faceted aproach would be best, where you can look for information based on:
country, region, culture, religion, etc.
Also I was wondering the amount of countries in the list.
If it's only a few or some don't contain much information you may consider
grouping them by region of the world (i.e. Western europe, Eastern Europe,
Middle East, Northern Africa, Equatorial Africa, South Africa, North
America, Central America, South America, etc. etc. ).
