Background 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>&nbsp;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>&nbsp;having taken place in 2007, the 5th highest number for the year though somewhat far behind China&#39;s 470 executions. &nbsp;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>&nbsp;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. As one if the most populous nations on earth, there can be no great surprise that Japan has one of the highest incidents of crime, with the <a href="http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_tot_cri-crime-total-crimes">total number of crimes</a>&nbsp;reported in 2002 more than 2.85 million. 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>&nbsp;in 2007.
