As the awareness and literacy of humans increase, they realize the power they hold over the governing bodiesTo quote the chairman of the global transparency list “Corruption can be beaten if we work together. To stamp out the abuse of power, bribery and shed light on secret deals, citizens must together, tell their governments they have had enough.”

Even at the dawn of the 21st century, there are a few countries which still lack the solidarity and stability of uncorrupt governance. We bring to you the ten most corrupt nations, according to the Global Transparency list of 2015 along with a little insight into their situation.
