Estonia is one of the three Baltic States. Rapid economic growth prior to 2007 gave the state its nickname, the Baltic Tiger. It is one of the world’s high income countries. Both its GDP per capita and Global Peace Index rankings are close to that of Taiwan. It ranks among the top three countries in the world in the Digital Government Index with nearly 99% of government services digitized. The World Bank has praised Estonia for having the most successful eID system in the world. Even the registration of marriage and divorce can be processed online. After nearly five decades of Russian occupation, Russophobia runs deep in Estonia society even till today.
