Like any country, Egypt has its fair share of crime, and boasts the 9th largest <a href="http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_pri-crime-prisoners">prisoner population</a> with just under 62,000 people incarcerated. It still enacts the death penalty, though only in a limited way with 48 <a href="http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_exe-crime-executions">executions</a> having taken place in 2007, the 5th highest number for the year though somewhat far behind China's 470 executions. However, it is the prominence of <a href="http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_cor_of_man_sur_ran_thi_as_a_maj_bus_con-surveyed-ranking-major-business-constraint">corruption</a> that is of major worry to most, with 50.26% of business managers claiming it was a major business constraint - the 11th highest rate globally.

That placed Japan 6th overall, with only 20% of that reported in the leading nation, the US. However, just 15.2% of Japanese people claiming to be <a href="http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_tot_cri_vic-crime-total-victims">victims of crime</a>, placing the country 20th in the world, with 30% of Australian making a similar claim. Perhaps surprising to many is the fact that Japan still enacts the death penalty, with 9 prisoners <a href="http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_exe-crime-executions">executed</a> in 2007.
