Who governs in the OECD?

I thought it would be interesting to look at the 36 members and see how many have centre-right and centre-left governments. The split as far as I can tell is:

Centre-Right (23)

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Chile
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Israel
  • Italy*
  • Japan
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania*
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

Centre-Left (13)

  • Canada
  • Estonia
  • Finland
  • Greece
  • Iceland
  • South Korea
  • Mexico
  • New Zealand
  • Portugal
  • Slovakia
  • Slovenia
  • Spain
  • Sweden

So around two thirds of OECD members currently have centre-right Governments.

Even more interesting when you adjust for population. Around 300 million live in a country with a CL Government and almost one billion in countries with a CR Government.
