The 8 Most Corrupt Countries in the World

Page 1 of 9

Who are the most corrupt countries in the world? Corruption is a serious matter in numerous nations around the globe. What’s more, as revealed by the data released by Transparency International, the world’s leading anti-corruption organization, there is not one single country that is corruption-free. However, it is undeniable that, in some nations, the situation has gotten somewhat out of control.

Using the figures from Transparency International’s latest report on the matter, the Corruption Perceptions Index 2012, we have compiled a countdown of the world’s eight most corrupted countries. The Corruption Perceptions Index scores countries from 0 to 100; the lower the score is, the higher the level of corruption.

Iraq has been under the scrutiny of the international press for more than a decade and its recent history is plagued by acts of violence and terrorism, loss of lives, religious feuds, and violations against human rights. Iraq once again manages to draw negative attention towards it by achieving one of the lowest scores on the Corruption Perceptions Index. With its score of 18 out of 100, Iraq is still better off than 7 other nations in the world; however, this score remains a strong indicator that the country is still far from recovery.

One of the world’s last remaining communist nations, North Korea has also made our top 8 by becoming the 2nd most corrupt country. Issues such as the national food shortage, the country’s nuclear ambitions, and the death of Kim Jong-il have kept the world’s focus on this country over the past few years. North Korea has managed to score the lowest score on the Index (8 out of 100), a tie with Somalia and Afghanistan. This score only manages to further fuel international concerns over the country’s current situation.

We would like to introduce you to the eight most corrupt countries in the world. Apart from Iraq and North Korea, highlights also include Afghanistan, Burma, and Sudan.

So, let’s take a look at the countdown.
