Transparency International (transparency.org) currently rates Azerbaijan number 143 out of 183 on the corruption chart with a score at 2.4 out of possible 10.
Azerbaijan is believed to have corruption on the highest levels of government.
A lot of commerce and business in the country is monopolized and so it is hard for regular people to break into business and make their fortune. To do so you would most likely have to pay the people that control the business a bribe to get a foothold, which for many people is out of the question.
It seems impossible to work your way up from nothing.
If this is not possible you can work for the government then you have a good chance to make a decent living. But if you are affiliated with any of the opposition parties it is almost impossible to find employment.
