Many studies are devoted to the peculiarities of building the information society in the modern world and the problems of uneven development of information and communication technologies in developed and developing countries. This paper examines the influence of the information and communication technologies development on the social and political activities of modern society. The correlation and regression analysis has been used to identify the relationship between the Information and Communication Technology Development Index (ICT), the Human Development Index (HDI) and the Democracy Index (DI). The results demonstrate that there is a close link between the countries’ sociopolitical attractiveness and the level of their information and communication development. However, it is not equal for different countries, which are grouped by the level of ICT, HDI and DI. Besides, the country’s information and communication technologies level has a significant effect on the social and political development. The development of the information component immediately leads to improvement of the socio-political sphere in countries with high levels of HDI, DI and ICT. The EU countries belong to this cluster. Democracy development and ICT have the inverse relationship in the group of countries with average HDI, DI and ICT levels.
