Open government contributes to economic prosperity and democracy through active investment and civic participation. Our study investigated whether open government affects the social dimension of prosperity such as social capital and environment. Social capital measures assets of humanity such as trust and community’s network, which determines the level of a community’s success. Environment indicates the relationship between human and nature and thus relates to the wellbeing of the nation and satisfaction among the population. Using the structural equation model we find that the two variables are not directly, but significantly indirectly related through the mechanisms of Rule of Law and Control of Corruption. The role of Rule of Law and Control of Corruption are emphasized in this study, because of their significance in mediating open government and prosperity. Unless mechanisms like regulation formulation, law enforcement and control of corruption are not put into practice; open government itself will not be a driving force to a prosperous society.
