If you don't win a game or if things don't go your way, is that corruption?

If an outcome has nothing to do with dishonesty, but a trade has taken place and there are winners and losers, is that corruption?

Is everything in life fair and even? If not, is that corruption?

Is the word corruption overused?

I think you need to rephrase the question; the question you truly ask here is this: What is "right"? Many would argue the moralist is a fictionalist; that all such standards are wholly imaginary and arbitrary. But they ignore the fine points here - we are evolutionary creations which possess an emotional armory intended to promote our survival - what we sense as corrupt is the violation of those standards which we have created in an effort to peacefully ensure our survival, a perceived to be threat.

These are the most corrupt federal politicians our country has ever encountered.

Interesting how people understand a word differently. In many countries around the world what is called corruption, we here in the U.S.A. call it business.

Yes, I would say you have overused the word "corruption".
