Who Are The Mortacracies? Part V

I lied. I wrote that this would be the concluding part of this series on defining the world's mortacracies, with my identification of the final list and what to do about them. But, I came across the Fund For Peace webste on failed states with beautiful data for my purpose here. So, never one to let good data rest in peace, I will exploit them to further define mortacracies.

The data comprise the 12 indicators of a state's failure listed below:

1 - Mounting Demographic Pressures,
2 - Massive Movement of Refugees and DPs,
3 - Legacy of Vengeance - Seeking Group Grievance,
4 - Chronic and Sustained Human Flight,
5 - Uneven Economic Development along Group Lens,
6 - Sharp and/or Severe Economic Decline,
7 - Criminalization or Delegitimization of the State,
8 - Progressive Deterioration of Public Services,
9 - Widespread Volition of Human Rights,
10 - Security Apparatus as "State within a State,"
11 - Rise of Factionalized Elates,
12 - Intervention of Other States or External Actors.
