We thank Hope Steele for her superb editing

graphic design and layout. We are grateful to

The terms country and nation as used in this
report do not in all cases refer to a territorial
entity that is a state as understood by international
law andpractice. The terms cover
well-defined, geographically self-contained
economic areas that may not be states but
for which statistical data are maintained on
a separate and independent basis.
