Long books/long publications that compare and contrast two different countries in great detail?

In the past, I discovered this long publication from the US Census Bureau website from 1991 where the statistical agencies of the US and USSR extensively compared and contrasted various statistics for the US and USSR in extremely great detail:

Also, I discovered this online book from 1998 (though research for this book likely began in 1991 or beforehand since this idea was apparently already mentioned in an article from early 1992: https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/opinions/1992/02/16/ivans-real-face/ab48e7f4-d614-44ab-ba5d-0f90e7cdca13/ ) which extremely extensively compared and contrasted the geography of the US and the former USSR as well as what can be viewed as the identities of different regions in the US and the former USSR:

In turn, this motivated me to ask this question--are there any other long books/long publications--preferably those whose research began in 1991 or beforehand--that compare and contrast two different countries in great detail? I'm talking about books and publications that try to create a sufficiently similar frame of analysis for both countries in order to emphasize their similarities--if that makes sense.

Anyway, any thoughts on this?

For the record, I would highly advise everyone to take at least a quick look at both of these links to see why exactly I am so fond of these publications. :) They really do present the geography, regions, and statistics in the US and (former) USSR extremely neatly, clearly, and concisely and are both pretty long--as in, consisting of many pages. :)
