We just published an open database of central government revenue, expenditure and debt data.  The database is at http://www.publicsectorcredit.org/sovdef and a descriptive blog post can be found at http://expectedloss.blogspot.com/2012/12/a-new-free-sovereign-risk-database.html. We are hoping to get community input to improve this public resource.  Anyone interested can comment on the site or email me at marc@publicsectorcredit.org
