Given the country's plethora of checks, it's not surprising that a Prague-based startup travel agency has devoted itself to the fine art of corruption, giving people tours of some of the more blatant examples of pocket-lining in the land.
The first of its kind in the world, CorruptTour aims to give people "the most comprehensive range of corruption experiences", covering short-range scandals, long-term abuse, and everything in between, confident that they'll find you the tour "that is perfect for you and at the right price", if you know what they mean! Seriously... what do they mean?
They offer both walking & bus tours (in English, German, or Czech) of sites around the capital, as well as other cities in the Czech Republic, so you can "enjoy the Best of the Worst!".
Popular itineraries include The Prague Crony Safari (a “safari of the habitats of cronies in the wild”) and Hospitals on the Edge of Law, which highlights “Three Prague hospitals notorious for graft and sleaze”. Sounds like somebody's been making a few too many withdrawals from the blood bank.
They'll give you a surprisingly accurate breakdown of the numbers involved in public finance projects, and will even go so far as to take the group into offices to speak directly to the people involved, who'll presumably simply have to explain that boats don't buy themselves.
You can even buy shares in the enterprise, with a fat 0.05% stake costing $170, and having your certificate bearer-issued.
They're planning on expanding the service in the near future to graft-fueled countries like Italy & The Virgin Islands, though thankfully not Illinois, whose system of checks & balances prevents anything like that.
