We Lead the World

... in locking up people.

Here are the top 10 countries in the number of prisoners per 100,000 people:

  • United States, 751
  • Russia, 627
  • Virgin Islands, 549
  • Cuba, 531
  • Turkmenistan, 489
  • The Bahamas, 462
  • Belize, 460
  • Georgia, 428
  • Belarus, 426
  • Kazakhstan, 378

It is obvious that we are in "good" company.

In contrast, these are the figures for the other leading economic powers:

  • England, 151
  • China, 119
  • Canada, 108
  • France, 91
  • Germany, 88
  • Japan, 63

There is something wrong with this picture.
