    Wrong comparison. Sri Lanka has a higher HDI and GDP per capita than all South Asian countries (except Maldives in GDP per capita). Therefore, we must have a rule of law index that matches with our HDI and GDP per capita. The fact that a poorer and less developed Nepal beat is means we pathetically lag behind in the rule of law.
