This graph compares the geography of states which contribute to the budget for UN peacekeeping operations with that of states which provide military troops. States in the North pay, while states in the South send men: the top 6 financing states (covering two-thirds of the budget) are in the North (United States, Japan, Germany, France, United Kingdom) or are members of the Security Council (China), whereas the 13 states that mainly supply troops (two-thirds of the contingent) are in the South (South and East Asia and Africa).
