      Out of 180 countries, international financial institutions and
      think-tanks rank Slovakia as the 52nd and the US as the 18th least
      corrupt countries in the world. Their respective ratings are 5.0 and
      7.3 (10 would have been a perfect score). All the Nordic countries
      are among the least corrupt according to the 2008 annual report on
      public-sector corruption released by Transparency International this
      week, but so is Singapore whose government is often described as
      rather authoritarian.

      The perceived gap between how the governments operate in the older
      democracies and in the countries affected by communism in Central
      Europe in the past is quite defined (the US would place between the
      two groups):

      9.0 Switzerland
      8.1 Austria
      7.9 Germany
      5.2 Czech R.
      5.1 Hungary
      5.0 Slovakia
      4.6 Poland
