Corruption in Oceania
Oceania consists of an enormous region containing Australia, New Zealand, and hundreds of thousands of islands scattered across the Pacific Ocean. It contains some of the world’s most developed and democratic countries as well as some of its most impoverished (Papua New Guinea). Although it comprises a very small share of the world’s population, it exhibits a great diversity of cultures, economies, and political systems.
