A great resource for country-specific information is the U.S. State Department series of Background Notes. It won't have all the information you need about a country, but each issue does have a lot of very useful information. They are updated regularly and you can subscribe to email updates for particular countries of interest or the whole series. Click here for the recent update for Japan. Or click here to see the recently updated report for South Korea.
