To keep up with news from a country, subscribe to several newspaper feeds from the country. These are often searchable in RSS readers like Feedly.
For basic information about a country, try the CIA World Factbook (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/).
Search a country's governmental web sites for regulatory information. You may need to consult a librarian. The United States regulatory information is in the Code of Federal Regulations, for example (http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/). Industry feeds or blogs may also talk about regulatory information, such as http://www.raps.org/regulatory-focus/news/.
