The former Soviet state of Estonia leads the world in terms of internet freedom. When it threw out its ‘legacy technology’ upon independence from the USSR in 1991, legislators made a profound commitment to government openness, allowing it to pioneer online government services such as e-health, e-education and e-voting. It now produces more tech start-ups per capita than any other country in Europe.
