How to Get Country Information using Python

In this tutorial, we will learn about how we can get country information using the Python program. We will discuss a Python module to obtain information about capital, currencies, official language, and many other things. We will also learn to get the country from phone numbers. Let's start the tutorial.

Python countryinfo Module

Python provides the countryinfo module to get the information or properties about any country including the ISO information, states, and languages are spoken, currencies and various other details. This module doesn't come with the Python pre-install version. To use it, we need to install it using the pip command. The country module is a user-friendly and open-source module. Let's install the countryinfo module in the terminal.

This command will install the module in the local system.

Now let's move to the coding part.

Code Implementation

Let's understand the following steps -

  1. First, we import the CountryInfo class from countryinfo module and use the input() function to get the country name as an input.
  2. We create a class name CountryDetails that takes a country name as input and stores it in a variable.
  3. To use the CountryDetails class, we provide a string containing a country's name as an argument. This will create an instance of the `CountryDetails` class that represents the specified country.
  4. Utilize multiple methods within the `CountryDetails` class to manipulate the object and gather specific information about the country. For example, these methods might retrieve details such as population, capital city, currency, and languages spoken in that country.
  5. Access the necessary information using the dot notation, which allows you to retrieve the specific details from the `CountryInfo` object.
  6. After obtaining the country's details, print each specific information individually, like printing the country name, capital city, currency, and languages spoken in that country.

Let's implement the above steps in the code.
