Who executes the most people?

Yes, its 'our' great friend, the Chinese Stalinist regime. It executed more people than the rest of the world put together in 2009.

In China you can be executed for, among other things, bribing officials and stealing historical relics. And for opposing the Chinese regime.

This information is taken from Amnesty International.


  1. Seems reasonable since they have so many people....dunno how reliable these figures are but per capita China comes in at #14.


    Interestingly Singapore is #2 and they are considered a 'good' eastern country by the West. The reason for their ranking may be drug related executions, while still being barbaric, the executions are possibly not related to freedom of speech.
    Also Kuwait is the top ranked Arab country at #6, despite being seen as one of the 'good' Arab countries by the West.
    USA have more executions per person than Somalia, Zimbabwe and Pakistan, all of which we get told are run by unstable leaders, or are a threat to freedom.
