Postby The_Hero_of_Men » March 16th, 2011, 2:21 am

Is there anywhere on the 'Net that I can find a list of the world's most corrupt nations?

This is the most complete list available and it comes out every year. Interesting that the US has gotten worse, BTW...

why the hell would you want to do that hero?

corruption is everywhere. usa germany japan, these are the most corrupt nations on earth

but the corruption is limited to upper classes.

now i'm not saying a culture of corruption is what makes africa, italy, russia, turkey, south america great.. but corruption can sometimes be a positive thing, especially getting around ridiculous laws

If I am going to move overseas, I want to find out as much about the target country as possible in order to make an informed decision.

The hero of time, btw, I hope you are willing to have everything you post attached to you personally in real life in the future. If that is your photo in the avatar, there is facial recognition software out there that can find your real identity through a few database searches.

I also want to find out as much as possible about the countries that I'm considering so I created a thread that lists many links here:
