The Economist Democracy Index   rates countries   on the state of their governing system each year. In the latest installment published today, 22 countries in the world were rated as “full democracies,” including all Scandinavian countries, several Western European nations as well as Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Mauritius, Costa Rica and Chile, which joined the top group in 2019 together with France and Portugal.

The US was listed as a 'flawed democracy', downgraded because of low 'political participation' and dysfunctional government.
