You’ve made me think - the index might be based on a set of assumptions or metrics that some countries can’t or really just are different enough not to ever really match properly.

Yeah that can be an issue but it's probably good enough right?

The UN reports are all sorts of problematic. They're self reported mostly hence why you get crazy shit claims at times, and since they're self reported you get fudge too. Cooling the book style.

But most of all, they're usually built on "developed" world standards which means odd shit.

I love the idea of the UN but then I watch a session and damn. How can they really get anything done when the perpetrators and their allies veto everything? Then it’s just loud noises.

The UN isn't really meant to solve anything, it's meant to prevent WW3. The vetoing is thus deliberately designed to be there
