Unless you've been living in a great big firewall, you'll know that the Internet is subject to censorship in some places. The map above reveals the places that adopt those practices.
Green shows that there's little to no Internet censorship, while yellow reveals countries that are contemplating increasing censorship in the future. You'll definitely not want to live in the pink areas because they're the most pervasive. Gray areas are not classified.
The OpenNet Initiative pegs the colors as such:
Pervasive - A large portion of content in several categories is blocked. (Pink)
Substantial - A number of categories are subject to a medium level of filtering or many categories are subject to a low level of filtering. (Light Pink)
Selective - A small number of specific sites are blocked or filtering targets a small number of categories or issues. (Light Yellow)
Changing Situation - It is suspected, but not confirmed, that Web sites are being blocked. (Yellow)
Little or No Censorship - No evidence of blocked Web sites, although other forms of controls may exist. (Green)
