Well, according to Foreign Policy magazine, it’s Equatorial Guinea. Yet, the BP Annual Statistical Review of World Energy – the most authoritative and comprehensive set of statistics published – disagrees quite significantly:
Oil production (thousand barrels per day) 2008
|Rep. of Congo (Brazzaville)||249|
However, this doesn’t detract from the main thrust of the FP article which places Equatorial Guinea as the 3rd least free place on earth, behind North Korea and Burma (Myanmar).
If you aren’t depressed enough by that story, they’ve got an excellent article with innovative, intuitive and informative graphics analyzing this year’s most failed states along side some excellent photography.
