2. Corruption in Arizona
I would have to say corruption has nothing to do with the term "level" identified preceding to the words "world nation". In other words the richest nations have some of the darkest corruption rings in the world. It appears, the greater the money and democracy, the greater the corruption due to the fact that organized means “better hidden”. America is a country in which everyone looks up to it as it has become prosperous in both economic and living condition. However there is a darker side to what goes on here in Arizona.
In the state of Arizona, specifically in the city of Tucson, a state court known as Pima County Superior Court has processed thousands of cases in which it is evidenced, by the orders filed by the superior court, child abuse, child neglect, child endangerment and child kidnapping is acceptable environment for child development. Looking deeper into these child cases, the superior court demands the parent who objects to the court’s diminished moral interpretations on stability to accept their moral interpretation or face additional fines and judgments. In 98% of all custody cases reviewed from 2000 to 2012, we found that the pima county superior court placed large number of children into imminent death and dangerous and life threatening environment by not ruling in favor of the best interest of children. This pima county superior court, has clearly shown that it intends to wait till the child is dead before it uses its “honorable” authority to protect our children. Our own tax money is used to pay the State of Arizona who intern uses it to commit atrocities and human rights violations against children in the Pima County!

The Bahamas before France, Qatar and UAE right before Cypurs, Puerto Rico before Slovenia, Rwanda before Czech Republic, Jordan before Croatia. Nonsense.
7. must try harder if Israel wants to be #1 like USA
8. Israelis, BEWARE!
It is easier for a nation to recover from war than to recover from corruption. See Germany & Japan......and look at corrupt nations like India (I am ashamed to say)and Bangladesh.
