World Diplomacy Simulation for College students.
My history teacher recently presented the idea of my group of friends creating a World Diplomacy-type simulation for another one of his classes. There would be 25 countries, one for each student. The scenario would take place in the present day and would involve military, economic, and governmental interaction between everyone involved. The goal is to teach students how governments work and interact with one another.
My question is this: besides Wikipedia.org, which is a great source of information, is there any place where I can acquire current day military statistics for modern nations? Such as the number of troops in the Canadian army including reserves, number of ships in the Royal Navy, and number of aircraft in the Royal Air Force. WIkipedia gives this information for some nations but not for all. The simulation will be very comlex in a variety of ways and so therefore it is crucial that I acquire this information. I would very much appreciate any information that people on this forum could give me. Thank you.
