Norway leads the world in fiscal transparency and freedom of the press, and indeed in the Index for Public Integrity. It also diverges from many countries on the top of governance by its enforcement of international anticorruption regulations. Norway is under-regulated where public accountability mechanisms are concerned (on party finance restrictions, financial disclosures, conflict of interest), and on the European average only where freedom of information and procurement regulations are concerned. However, it seems that transparency , freedom of the press and a record number of e-citizens make an excellent job of constraining corruption, even in the presence of high natural resources.
