Transparency International has just released its much anticipated Corruption Perceptions Index 2010.

The good news? The report looks really awesome—cool use of maps, colors, and infographics.

The bad news? Their findings.

“Nearly three quarters of the 178 countries in the index score below five, on a scale from 10 (very clean) to 0 (highly corrupt). These results indicate a serious corruption problem.”

And just to get our collective bloods-a-boilin’, here’s a list of the 22 countries that scored better than the US.

Now all we have to do is nudge our politicians through various financial and personal blackmails into falsifying a few documents that will give us license to blow these sumsofbitches off the map.
