Transparency International’s annual report on global corruption rate was released this week. Denmark shares the 1st place with New Zealand which are the least corrupt countries of the world.

Based on the report this year’s results highlight the connection between corruption and inequality. Bright yellow indicates the very clean status of corruption, while deep red marks high corruption rate in each country on the world map.

Lower-ranked countries in the index are suffering from untrustworthy and badly functioning public institutions which often undermines sustainable development and incorporates in social exclusion.

Higher-ranked countries generally tend to possess higher ratio of press freedom, access to information and independent juridical system, with more balanced distribution of wealth and power.
