Corruption on the Maldives 2007 - 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 on the Maldives: Presidential republic). Similarly, higher corruption occurs predominantly in low-income countries. On the Maldives, per capita income is 9,600 USD annually, which is relatively low by global standards. The cost of living is in the unremarkable middle range, but does not indicate either great poverty or great prosperity.
