Likelihood of your country being disconnected from the internet
From The Economist: "In December Renesys, a network-research firm, ranked more than 200 countries by how easy it would be to disconnect them from the internet. It reckoned that for 61 of them, with only one or two internet service providers at their borders (e.g., Tunisia, Ethiopia, and Yemen), it would be fairly simple, and for another 72 (including Rwanda, Kyrgyzstan, and Iran) it would not be too difficult. China, with its well-developed internet backbone, was not on either of those lists. Renesys thought that given a 'determined effort,' its internet could be shut down over a period of time, 'but it would be hard to implement and even harder to maintain.'"
