And if you're into all this sorta thing, and have high-speed internet, why not download the CIA World Factbook, a reference containing a lot of info about all countries in the world. It includes population, politics (hehe - as viewed by the US), geography, economy, social welfare, etc...

Have a look here ;) (http://debian.paradise.net.nz/RedHat/redhat-8.0/en/iso/i386/)

But if you have restrictions please make sure that you are actually allowed to download the stuff.

well that link before is in NZ so shouldn't count towards your usage, depending on how that Uni measures/charges it.

Also you'll probably find that someone on the network will already have it and be sharing it. Also if it's anything like canty uni, it will be hosted by the uni as well so you can grab it from those servers.
