Please see the World Bank Institute's Worldwide Governance Indicators (and its Wikipedia article). Among the world's nations, Taiwan ranks near or above the 75th percentile for regulatory quality, rule of law, and corruption. This is well above the regional averages in east Asia. Control of corruption is behind only Singapore and Hong Kong, ahead of South Korea and way ahead of China.
I myself these numbers, as they are an attempt to empirically rank nations in a fair way. Also, the scores for Thailand (where I live and run a consulting company) and its region jibe with my personal experience.
