Corruption in Kuwait 2003 - 2022
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 Kuwait: constitutional monarchy). Similarly, higher corruption occurs predominantly in low-income countries. In Kuwait, per capita income is 34,290 USD annually, which is very high by global standards. The cost of living is in the unremarkable middle range, but does not indicate either great poverty or great prosperity.
