This template displays a short summary of standard information for countries. It should go at the top of the Understand section in every country article. Note that per current consensus, quickbars should ONLY be used for articles about sovereign countries and their separately-administered territories (generally speaking, places with their own 2-character ISO country code and Internet Top-Level Domain). It should not be used for U.S. states, Canadian provinces, or any other article type. You may make a suggestion on the Template talk:Quickbar page if you feel that quickbars should be used for other article types, but be aware it's been discussed a lot.

It uses the following format (note that the location image MUST NOT be wider than 250px):

| name=Country Name (if different from the PAGENAME)
| flag=Image:flag.png
| flagwidth=50px (defaults to 75px; override only if necessary)
| location=[[Image:location|noframe|250px]]
| capital=[[Capital]]
| currency=currency used
| population=recent population estimate
| electricity=electrical voltage and current (plug type)
| callingcode=calling code
| timezone=time zone(s) in relation to UTC
