Fun is right! Instead of generalizing, let me give you some ABCs:
All Andorrans by law must keep a rifle at their home or will have one loaned to them in case of emergency.
All children in Armenia aged 6 and up have CHESS as a mandatory part of the curriculum. There's a stone structure similar to Stonehenge that is actually 3500 years OLDER than Stonehenge.
The largest KFC in the world is housed in an old railway station in Azerbaijan.
From 2006 to 2008 the Royal Bahamas Air Force had only one plane but no trained pilot to fly it.
In Belize a speed bump is called a "Sleeping Policeman"
Brazil prisons offer the prisoners to reduce sentence for 4 days (up to 48 days/year) for every BOOK they read and report on.
Brunei government owns a cattle ranch in Australia larger than Brunei itself.
Angkor Wat in Kampuchea is 80 times larger than St Peter Basilica and at least 3.5 times the size of Vatican City.
The tap water in Canada is held to a higher health standard than bottled water.
And lots more fun stuff even in the ABCs, let alone the rest!
In Zambia, foreigners have been jailed and had their passports confiscated for possession of the illegal drug BENADRYL.

Book for light reading and updating one's general knowledge about countries of the world. Not sure about the authenticity of the facts stated, but they make an interesting reading reading. ( )
