In 2006 the International Monetary Fund (IMF) had 184 members. The IMF aims to ‘promote monetary cooperation’, ‘foster economic growth and high levels of employment’ and provide loans.

This map shows votes per territory in August 2006, prior to a vote redistribution. The most votes were cast by the United States, which had as many as the next three biggest voters combined; these were Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom. The total votes allocated to Central Africa were less than 1% of all votes; Southeastern Africa had just under 2% of all IMF votes. The redistribution of votes did not noticeably increase the share of African territories.

"Go tell the International Monetary Fund that privatisation is a big disaster in Zambia ... I challenge them to point at a success story - it is being forced down our throats and is highly undemocratic." Joyce Nonde, 2004

Territory size shows the proportion of all votes in the International Monetary Fund that were allocated to that territory.
