The "Jewel in the Crown" of the British Empire. Until independence in 1947 it was ruled from London under the auspices of a British-appointed Viceroy whose powers were absolute.

India is the second most populous nation state in the world, after China.

Military expenditure

In 2013, India was #9 in the world in terms of military expenditure.[1] Between 2012-2016, it was one of only 2 states to account for over 5% of global weapons imports (together with Saudi Arabia).[2]

"War on Terror"

Full article: Rated 4/5 “War on Terror”

After the 2008 Mumbai attacks, the National Investigation Agency was set up, a special national "counter-terrorism" agency empowered to deal with "terror-related" matters anywhere in India without permission from the state governments.


In 2015, the New York Times reported on Delhi's air pollution that "nearly half of the city’s 4.4 million schoolchildren have irreversible lung damage from the poisonous air."[3]


In 2016, the Indian central bank banned their highest denomination banknote, citing concerns about corruption.[4]


In December 20018, the Indian government passed a law that required any person in charge of a computer to “extend all facilities and technical assistance to the agencies” in accessing its content. Failure to comply with the agencies could result in seven years of imprisonment and an unspecified fine.[5]

Universal surveillance

In 2010 India started scanning personal details like names, addresses, dates of birth, mobile numbers, and more, along with all 10 fingerprints and iris scans of its 1.3 billion citizens, into a centralized government database called Aadhaar to create a voluntary identity system. This was reportedly breached in January 2018.[6]
