It's the same story.

White and US allies near the top and so on so forth.
The chart also carries "Taiwan" as a separate country.

This is about level of corruption, and in that context mainland China and Taiwan are separate entities.

Taiwan's policies to control corruption do not affect level of corruption in mainland any more than the other way.

Maybe you can shed a few tears for it not being labeled "province of China", but doing so would not change corruption in either place.

Here, have a tissue though.

As for Israel being ranked 34th - do you think this as a good score? Shows where you come from.

Bribes

It is obvious that officials in developed countries do take bribes. Things there just may  ...
no point talking about corruption in isolation. What we need is better morality.


This evaluation is about corruption in isolation.

While throwing comments like "Why is county X scored Y when it does Z", you should keep that in mind.

I'm sure you can find similar evaluations of countries ranked by the observed morality of their citizens, or whatever other standards.

If you do, you can post a new thread and we can discuss it there. But probably we will find the moral evaluation to lack the element of corruption (or some thing relevant for a random reader) in their evaluation.

New Zealand (Aotearoa)

What about the Maoris in Aotearoa ? The Inuit in Greenland ?

I don't know how corrupt their respective settlements were prior to coloniation of western countries, but now they are part of NZ and Denmark respectively and their voices are included in the democratic processes within said countries.

They are part of the numbers that you see on top of the table, which reflect current level of corruption - not past.

I don't think that the genocide and plunder of locals by Briitish or Danish settlers in any way contributed to decreasing corruption in those two countries.

Vote rigging USA!

GW Bush did not win the popular voting in 2004.
The presidency was presented to him by his own brother.

Likewise the American corrupt voting system helped put Trump to the Oval Office with millions of fewer popular votes than his opponent Hilary Clinton.

"A survey published by Transparency International in 2017 showed that nearly six in ten Americans believed the US was more corrupt than the previous year, with the White House considered the most corrupt institution in the US."

"Transparency International said cross analysis with global democracy data had revealed a link between corruption and the health of democracies."
