[Stats] Inglehart-Welzel Cultural Map of the World

"This map reflects the fact that a large number of basic values are closely correlated; they can be depicted in just major two dimensions of cross-cultural variation."

Quick explanation: Sweden good, Zimbabwe bad. You'll find the most religious and traditionalist countries at the bottom here.
A bit overwhelming, but when you've read the accompanying text and studied the map for a while it start making sense!

judgements like good or bad are not helpful and often misleading. As atheists we should be objective and try not to treat atheism as a religion. There is just a difference in culture between the nations on the map. nothing more nothing less.
