RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Jump to: navigation, search

The Democracy Index is an annual report produced by the Economist Intelligence Unit since 2006.[1] In its latest report the top nation was Norway and the bottom ranked was North Korea.[2] The index is compiled by examining the state of democracy in 167 countries and attempts to quantify this with an their Index of Democracy which focuses on five general categories: electoral process and pluralism, civil liberties, functioning of government, political participation, and political culture. In addition, it lumps countries into one of four different categories: full democracies, flawed democracies, hybrid regimes, and authoritarian regimes.
