Top 5 most democratic nations in 2018:


#1  Norway 9.87

#2  Iceland 9.58

#3  Sweden 9.39

#4  New Zealand 9.26

#5  Denmark 9.22

(Canada and The United States placed 6th and 25th respectively. Canada qualifying as a full democracy while the US qualified as a "Flawed Democracy".)

 

"DEMOCRACY stopped declining in 2018, according to the latest edition of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index. The index rates 167 countries by 60 indicators across five broad categories: electoral process and pluralism, the functioning of government, political participation, democratic political culture and civil liberties. It is stricter than most similar indices: it concludes that just 4.5% of the world’s people live in a “full democracy”. However, the overall global score remained stable in 2018 for the first time in three years. Just 42 countries experienced a decline, compared with 89 in 2017. Encouragingly, 48 improved."

 

Bottom 5 Countries:

#163  Chad 1.61

#164  Central African Republic 1.52

#165  Dem. Republic of Congo 1.49

#166  Syria 1.43

#167  North Korea 1.08

I'm not too familiar with the political situation in Spain besides corrupt officials, so I may be way off base on this, but this judges countries on a large number of criteria. China for example got points for strong separation of church and state. This also takes into account the opinions and actions of the local populations which may skew the data, but it is ultimately leveraged by professional opinion. Spain highest scores were in "Electoral Process and Pluralism" and "Civil Liberties".

Or listing North Korea as democratic at all.😏

By what criteria do they measure the level of Democracy.  ???

Simply voting for a dictator (or else) can't be considered a peoples choice government.

USA isn't  perfect either, look at who got elected for President....😎

Canada the only Super Large Holder of Oil and Natural Gas in Dark Green...

 

Explains how the population successfully stops every pipeline and Government can't seem to overrule it (even when the government buys a pipeline directly and still can't build it) :air:
