Economic Freedom: Blue is freest, Red is most planned. New adjectives with no value judgement. Importantly, the red and the blue equal in brightness.
Civil Freedom: Yellow is freest, dark green is most regulated.
Political Freedom: Light purple is freest, black is most regulated.

Economic strength would then be mentioned in the text, in the same way many other stats help build front page text (like crime does now). For example "The nation has a powerhouse free market economy, thought to be due to a combination of high economic freedoms and business-friendly government."

I can, however, see that these aesthetics will offend many!

I definitely agree they should all indicate freedom but I feel like it would be best to keep green to red just for simplicity. Or at least have all three be the same color scheme not three different one.

I've always viewed the color scheme from the context of a stoplight:
  • Green=Go. You're free to just go on through. No slowing or anything.
  • Yellow=Caution. If you're already at the intersection, go ahead. Otherwise slow down.
  • Red=Stop. Until given permission, you are not permitted to leave.

That provides the perfect color scheme/metaphor for the freedoms.

That makes a lot of sense. I've definitely thought about it similarly but I hadn't actually come to that metaphor
