Walk Free investigated 162 countries and found slaves in every single one.

But the practice is far worse in some countries than others.

Women and men are coerced into participating, often starting at a very young age, and are completely reliant on their traffickers for not just their daily survival but basic life choices; they have no say in where they go or what they do and are physically prevented from leaving.

A less visible but still prevalent form of slavery in America involves illegal migrant laborers who are lured with the promise of work and then manipulated into forced servitude, living without wages or freedom of movement, under constant threat of being turned over to the police should they let up in their work.

Walk Free cites "a highly developed criminal economy that preys on economic migrants, trafficking and enslaving them." That economy stretches from the migrants' home countries right to the United States.

But that adds up to a lot: an estimated 60,000 slaves, right here in America.

If your goal is to have as few slaves as possible -- Walk Free says it is working to eradicate the practice in one generation's time -- then this map is very important, because it shows you which countries have the most slaves and thus which governments can do the most to reduce the global number of slaves.

The rate of slavery is also alarmingly high in Haiti, in Pakistan and in India, the world's second-most populous country.

In all three, more than 1 percent of the population is estimated to live in slavery.

A few trends are immediately clear from the map up top.

First, rich, developed countries tend to have by far the lowest rates of slavery.

Others fall into forced labor when they move to a different region looking for work, and turn to an unlicensed "broker" who promises work but delivers them into servitude.
