Here is a good video from the New York Times about the correlation between levels of corruption and the nationality of diplomats having the most unpaid parking tickets in New York, and which has coincided with threats from the State Department to withhold aid from violating countries. However, the fact that Israel has paid all its tickets doesn't seem to jive with the impression that Israel's politicians (not diplomats) are quite corrupt; that doesn't mean that the country doesn't have the money to pay the tickets they receive.
