Corruption is one of the most serious problems facing the world and is both a result and the cause of poverty. Corruption doesn't only occur at the lower levels of society but also at the higher levels of national governments, judiciary, businesses, military etc.
It is sad to know that corruption affects all elements of society and the poor are the ones who are most harmed by it. By the means of a corruption score, the existing corruption in a particular area or country can be measured and calculated.
This score has helped to list down the top 10 corrupt countries in the world.
Corruption is rampant in most countries around the world and the country which is considered the most corrupt is Somalia with a corruption score of 1/10. North Korea is another really corrupt country with the same corruption score as Somalia.
Countries like Myanmar and Afghanistan too are considered very corrupt and part of the ten most corrupt nations worldwide. Uzbekistan, with a score of 1.6/10 on the corruption scale, is another nation which has corruption spread like a disease.
Turkmenistan scores the same corruption score and is a country whose system has been made hollow by corruption just like Sudan. With a corruption score of 1.8/10, Iraq is another nation which counts as one of the ten most corrupt countries in the entire world. Haiti and Venezuela too are part of the most corrupt nations of the world.
