Corruption continues to ravage societies around the world, reveals Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index 2012.

Two thirds of the 176 countries ranked in the 2012 index score below 50, on a scale from 0 (perceived to be highly corrupt) to 100 (perceived to be very clean), showing that public institutions need to be more transparent, and powerful officials more accountable.

The Corruption Perceptions Index scores countries on a scale from 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean).  While no country has a perfect score, two-thirds of countries score below 50, indicating a serious corruption problem.
