World Corruption Ranking - How corrupt is your country?
« on: January 26, 2017, 10:45:19 AM »
Transparency International published a ranking on how corrupt countries are. Pretty interesting stuff. Winners are Denmark and New Zealand, and apparently, Somalia and South Sudan are more corrupt than North Korea.

Just because you don't understand something, doesn't mean it's not real.

Rigged!

America should be #1.

Seriously though I'm kind of surprised we're that high up the list considering how large this country is.

Nothing really surprised me there, about where I figured...Seeing the Scandinavian countries where they are is of no suprise. They are heavily socialist, and going by the requirements of the poll it makes sense.

New Zealand is not surprising either, I have actually looked on and off to move there, it is an interesting setup for a country. Free markets, but heavy social programs, however, the entire population is burdened to pay for them not just a few, kinda like Sweden, but with most of its markets being free.

Though the country that surprised me of its standing was Germany.
