 Macedonia is ranked 69. according to the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) in the 2012 Tranparency International report.

In regional terms, Slovenia (37) and Croatia (62) are in front of Macedonia, whereas Bosnia&Herzegovina (72), Bulgaria (75), Serbia (80), Greece (94), Kosovo (105) and Albania (113) behind it.

According to TI, the least corrupt countries are New Zealand, Denmark and Finland out of 176 states worldwide, whereas the bottom of the list includes North Korea, Somalia and Afghanistan.

“Looking at the Corruption Perceptions Index 2012, it’s clear that corruption is a major threat facing humanity. Corruption destroys lives and communities, and undermines countries and institutions. It generates popular anger that threatens to further destabilise societies and exacerbate violent conflicts”, says TI.

The Corruption Perceptions Index scores countries on a scale from 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). While no country has a perfect score, two-thirds of countries score below 50, indicating a serious corruption problem.
