Voting Rights in the International Bank of Reconstruction

Like in the real International Bank, country’s voting rights are based on the amount of shares held by the country. One vote for each share of the Bank’s capital stock held by the member, plus basic votes, calculated so that the sum of all basic votes is equal to 5.55 percent of the sum of basic votes and share votes for all members.

You can find a full list of shares held, and voting percentages here
