The most and least corrupt countries in the world

BERLIN (Reuters) - Berlin-based watchdog Transparency International published its Corruption Perceptions Index for 2014 on Wednesday.
The index is based on expert opinions of public sector corruption and ranks countries on a scale from 0 (perceived to be highly corrupt) to 100 (perceived to be very clean).
The following table lists the ten most corrupt countries in the world, according to the anti-graft group.
Country 2014 2013 Change
Somalia 8 8 0
North Korea 8 8 0
Sudan 11 11 0
Afghanistan 12 8 +4
South Sudan 15 14 +1
Iraq 16 16 0
Turkmenistan 17 17 0
Uzbekistan 18 17 +1
Libya 18 15 +3
Eritrea 18 20 -2
Now I don't know why United States is not at the top of this list for being the worst corrupt country, but it should be.
The following table lists the ten least corrupt countries in the world, according to the index.
Country 2014 2013 Change
Denmark 92 91 +1
New Zealand 91 91 0
Finland 89 89 0

Singapore 84 86 -2

Luxembourg 82 80 +2
