In order to understand the news, a context of world geography and history is essential. That is why The Onion is publishing a world atlas: to help us. News that now makes no sense will now make sense. Thus begins a new age of enlightenment. OUR DUMB WORLD contains, among other things: News and historic facts from other nations; Historic timelines for countries; Rejected flag designs; The earth broken down and described, from its molten core to the outermost sphere, and the location of heaven; Demographic, economic and other -ic data about each country's people, industries, and habits. Every country will be categorized in a number of ways, including: Ethnic cleanliness; Level of Bono activity; Prop comedians per 1,000 live birds; Yearly income in wide-screen televisions; The Monkeys they got; Where it sees itself in five years; Color boxes for average skin color; Chart listing benefits of invading said country; Most annoying handicrafts. OUR DUMB WORLD is the first original Onion audiobook in eight years - a gut-busting send-up in which no nation escapes unscathed.
