I can’t find one other country that receives “On Target” for 6/7 goals, with only one with “Some Progress” universal primary education.

We can criticize China’s treatment of political dissent, but it is definitely not just a rent-seeking regime. It is strongly improving its citizen’s lives more comprehensively than any other low or middle income country. How long can it continue to do that with political repression? Who knows.
