These are the most lawful and morally upright governments in the world. It's hard to find a government that is completely untainted with greed or deceit, but these are the closest to completely honorable governments on earth we can find. Denmark leads the way as the purest political government to date while Portugal, which is last on this list, is still a whole point above being average. That's still pretty good given how easy it is to be corrupt in our power-hungry world today.
