Inglehart-Welzel Cultural Map of the World marks the nations by 2 main factors. First is importance of religion (traditional/secular-rational values), and second factor is transition from industrial to post-industrial society (Survival/self -expression values).
Countries are positioned in a way you can see the difference between certain parts of world, but what more interesting – also beetwen certain parts of Europe. Ex-communist Europe is still glued together, with Chech Rep. and Slovenia (maybe also Croatia) looking good.
This Map shows that most innovative countries in the world (also in EIS – European Innovation Scoreboard) are at the top right corner: Japan & Sweden).
