    The Political Intelligence Zone is a "stand alone" website within the CountryWatch suite of online products focused on providing detailed information and analysis about major political events unfolding in various countries across the world. The foundation of this website is the Political Intelligence Briefing -- a report on significant political developments across the international spectrum. Written by CountryWatch's editor on a weekly basis, the Political Intelligence Briefing offers a rich tapestry of dynamic and in-depth international coverage, which is intended to inform CountryWatch users of the complex geopolitical events evolving in the world. Included in the Political Intelligence Briefing is the Featured Country, which highlights a key current issue unfolding on the international scene. An archive of past editions of the Political Intelligence Briefings, along with a database of individual articles, known as the Political Intelligence Wire, are provided as a courtesy to clients. Finally, a collection of individual Country Profiles, providing background data on each country, is included in the Political Intelligence Zone, for the convenience of clients.
