Where can I find data on US States, such as population, income,
demography, education level, etc. This data needs to be in some
database-usable format, and also needs to be in the public domain.
More precisely, I'm looking for the state-by-state version of the CIA
World Fact Book.

I believe the spreadsheet files on this page should give you all the
information you're looking for:

This is almost what I was looking for but I wonder if there is
something in addition to this which would have even more information.
For example the CIA World Fact Book, which is the model for this
query, has flag, map, and other non-statistical information such as
type of government. Is there anything that is in the public domain
that is like this?

If necessary, I can mark this answer as complete and set up a new one
for that other data. Just let me know.

Hey there.

Have a look at this site:

There's a lot of material here, which is open license stuff...almost
as good as public domain.

Take a look, especially, at the section on "List of States"  and
further down, the similarly titled "State Lists".

These might be what you need.  But if not, may I suggest posting a new
question so that a researcher can pinpoint the additional information
you need.
