And together, they make up about half of the iShares MSCI Emerging Market Index(EEM_), one of the most popular exchange traded funds.But what about the 17 other countries in the fund?For some time now, I've been monitoring a country that's off the radar screens of even the most sophisticated investors, one that represents a bigger prize than the BRIC nations.Emerging Market Investing -- Consider These Statistics: See if you can guess which emerging market investment I'm talking about. Take a look at these statistics.1. It's a member of the global economic leaders club -- better known as the G-20.2. With 240 million people, it boasts the world's fourth-largest population.3.
