Government styles evaluated
2005 map of Worldwide Governance Indicators, which attempts to measure the extent to which agents have confidence in and abide by the rules of society...
The breakdown of the colors on this map of the countries in the map is as follows:
Dark green (90th-100th percentile)
Light green (75th-90th percentile),
Yellow (50th-75th percentile)
Orange (25th-50th percentile)
Pink (10th-25th percentile)
Red (0th-10th percentile).
It is important to note that the Dark Green areas are all democracies, Republics and Constitutional Monarchies where authority is vested in a parliament...but NOT those parliamentary republics whose parliaments are effectively supreme over a separate head of state.
