Corrupt Countries

Transparency International is an organization that collects data on country-level corruption and publishes its results in the form of a ranking index. Here's an excerpt from an article at The Wall Street Cheat Sheet highlighting the seven most corrupt countries in the world according to TI:
Transparency International’s study of corruption found that two-thirds of the world’s nations scored below 50 on their corruption index, with the worst possible score being a 0 and the best, 100. While many developed countries posted fine scores — Denmark and New Zealand led the way, tied at 91 — a number of nations in Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas lagged behind.
