Food for thought; instead of trying make a statement against certain states or country, what about only/mostly patronizing those countries that are setting the high-bar for human rights via their *actions* (vs laws too often ignored) spanning a comprehensive set of criteria, including all that extrajudicial activity (incarceration, torture, etc)?


For example, the Human Rights Data Project contains standards-based quantitative information on government practices for a wide range of internationally-recognized human rights, primarily drawing from the US Department of State and Amnesty International reports.
