The Freedom House 2010 Report was issued in January. It gave the status (Free, Partly, Free, Not Free) of countries for 2009, their freedom scores, and identified whether or not they were electoral democracies.
Recently, Freedom House has completed its overall report with the presentation of its Country reports. They are available here. The reports are brief, but they are very useful for providing a basic overview of events in every country of the world, including countries about which it is often difficult to get any information whatsoever.
