UK weekly newspaper The Economist has produced an interactive animation showing public debt for the whole planet. It covers most countries (99% of world GDP).

With it you can display debt by year and country, see the amount of debt in dollars and as a percentage of GDP for each country and draw comparisons. A counter similar to the one in New York’s Times Square gives a second-by-second estimation of changes in global public debt.
