Transparency International has released its annual list of the most corrupt countries around the world, and the United States actually did pretty well! It came in at No. 22 out of 178 countries. So who did better than us?
Tied for first were Denmark, New Zealand and Singapore, and Finland and Sweden round out the top five. Those Scandinavians are so bloody honest! How are we ever going to beat them? Why don't you stop cheating on your taxes, dirty American liars! That's a probably good start.
A chart displaying the most/least corrupt countries is below, just in case you're planning a trip abroad and you need to figure out which destinations will require you to bring along some extra cash to pay off corrupt cops. (Click image to enlarge.)
