The essence of this interpretation is presented below:

Principal Component 1 : "Wellbeing of the country. "Red" countries are successful; "Green" are not.

Principal Component 2 : "Uncontrollable force". "Green" countries are poor or the ones, where international influence is not compensated by the development of democracy foundations.

Principal Component 3 : "Difficulties of democracy". "Red" countries are rich with totalitarian politics, "Green" ones are the countries with democratic regime, but which experience some difficulties.

Principal Component 4 : "Importance of the International influence despite of the national problems" is the slogan for "Green" countries, "Red" countries are less sensetive to the international impact.

Principal Component 5 : "Balance between Soverain State and the quality of life". In "Red" countries more attension is paid to the development of the life quality, in "Green" the state consistency is more important.
