Corruption is prevalent across every country but the level of corruption is different from country to country. Corruption ranges from bribery to paid intimidation and sometimes as far as imprisoning journalists and opponents.
Corruption is directly tied in with the economic stability of a country. Western countries tend to follow non-violent ways where a whistleblower or journalist exposes corruption. Countries that have problems with their power structures and deal with economic stability tend to have the highest rate of corruption.
Transparency International defines corruption as the misuse of public power for private benefit.
