The 10 most democratic countries in the world
Landlocked Switzerland is an ongoing, highly interesting experiment in what happens when you take the concept of democracy and pump it so full of steroids it becomes a gigantic, unstoppable beast. This is a nation that doesn’t just conduct regular referendums, it conducts endless polls on nearly every aspect of life within its 26 cantons. Anyone can call a referendum on anything, you just need to be a Swiss citizen, and collect 100,000 signatures in 18 months. Then the whole country votes and lives by the results, even in cases that are patently ridiculous.
