10 of the Most Corrupt Countries in the World

The world today is composed of many countries that are classified into different aspects. There are those countries that belong to the richest ones, and there are also those countries that fall to the poorest nations at the moment. One reason why a country is poor enough is corruption. In this regard, here are the 10 most corrupt countries in the world:

10. Eritrea


Fact is, there are only few people that Eritrea exists in the world map. It’s a small country that is close to Sudan. The country officials decided to open the country with tourists and business investors with the hope of improving the economy that they’re facing right now.

9. Libya 


It’s a famous African country not because of a great leader or a peaceful and safe surrounding, but because of the horrible chaos happening in the country almost everyday. Aside from corrupt officials, political issues are also arising in this nation that’s why the officials don’t have time improving the status of their own country.

8. Uzbekistan


Such nation is pitiful according to a lot of business tycoons. It’s because its President is strictly limiting business investors who can have a business in the country, making the country’s income very minimal. Because of this, the lives of the inhabitants are badly affected.

7. Turkmenistan


Incentives for foreign investors are nowhere to be found in Turkmenistan, and it’s a thing that’s imposed by the government of the country. Because of this, business investors are hesitant to invest in this nation. What’s even sadder is that the government officials are selfishly controlling the country’s income, leading to merciless corruption.

6. Iraq 


This country is well-known worldwide because of the horrible situation it’s facing from before and even up to now. Aside from corruption, it also has some other serious problems that truly affect the lives of the people like violence, protests and uprisings, political turmoil, and inexperienced and unknowledgeable officials.

5. South Sudan

South Sudan

This country has no definitive and organized political system. Because of this, some other progressive and intelligent countries are taking advantaged of the rich natural resources in the country that supposed to be the exclusive sources of income for the country itself.

4. Afghanistan 


Corruption is undeniably happening in this country. Economic and political walls are intentionally put by the country’s officials, making the country a least improved one. Freedom is something that doesn’t exist in this pitiful country. The corrupt political leaders are the ones whom should be followed.

3. Sudan 


This country hasn’t tried asking for help from the various business investors in some other countries, making it poor enough to afford the needs of the country itself. Moreover, violence is very visible in the country and the political turmoil is making the country suffer from a total chaos.

2. North Korea

North Korea

This Asian country is very strict and has a closed-off status. Because of this, there are only limited information available about the country. However, one thing is for sure and this is the fact that it has corrupt political leaders and the people are mercilessly deprived from their rights.

1. Somalia 


This country seems to have no government at all since everything here is in total chaos. A positive change will never be achieved because of the unending economic, social, and political problems happening every single day. While the people are busy fighting for survival, the government is also busy corrupting the money of the said nation.

These are the 10 most corrupt countries in the world today. These countries really have a horrible and pitiful economic, political, and social status.
