The closer the score is to 0, the more corruption, the closer to 100 is the evaluation that means less corruption, the country that recorded 50 points or more in 2018 is more than two thirds. The average score is 43 points.

There are few corruption in Denmark, New Zealand, Finland, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Asia is only ranked in Singapore. On the other hand, countries with many corruption are Somalia, Syria, South Sudan, Yemen, North Korea.

Lack of corruption is very important for democracy, and countries with a CPI of 50 or less are said to be "not complete democracy". From the left, the following graph shows "complete democracy", "defective democracy", "combined structure", "dictatorship system" along with their respective average CPI. For example in the case of Japan CPI is 73, so it seems to be close to "complete democracy".

Corruption tends to spread in places where the foundation of democracy is weakening, and politicians who are not democracies and politicians of popularism often use corruption. Transparency International 's Patricia Moreira , which publishes CPI says, "Many democratic organizations around the world are being threatened by autocratic or mass-oriented leaders, we strengthen check-and-balance and citizen It is necessary to protect you.
