OK, which country is really corrupt
I am pretty used to getting jumped on here when I assert that Nicaragua has small corruption compared to countries such as the US. Well, there is at least one other person who agrees with me.

Maybe it is all wrong. Let us know.
While it is true that you don't typically have to bribe your postman to deliver the mail in the US, in many key ways America's political and financial practices make it in absolute terms far more corrupt than the usual global South suspects. After all, the US economy is worth over $16 trillion a year, so in our corruption a lot more money changes hands.
