The causes of corruption lie in part in political and cultural reasons. Ineffective law enforcement may further promote it. It is striking that it is regularly lower in democratically governed countries (form of government in the Bahamas: Parliamentary democracy). Similarly, higher corruption occurs predominantly in low-income countries. In the Bahamas, per capita income is 26,490 USD annually, relatively high by global standards. The high cost of living also indicates a prosperous country.
