    Transparency International has published its 2013 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), which ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their administrative and political institutions are perceived to be on a scale from 0 (highly corrupt) and a 100 (very clean).

    I've been to some countries that should have made this list, but, for some strange reason, did not. :eek:
