I think it is not so much a problem with inflation. It is more a case of countries that limit currency exchanges or provide only allow currency exchanges as an artificial rate to try and limit capital flight occurring. 

I have a look at Venezuela and the difference there was only 3% presumably as despite the high inflation foreign exchange is still relatively easy. 

Sudan's difference was 10%.

Zimbabwe seems to be about 15%. 

I don't think Turkey has implemented currency controls yet so their is no black market rate.

> I checked a few currencies with high inflation and a shady monetary policy (as all the central banks out there lol) but it's really hard to find out the unofficial/real exchange rate

Yes, I found it difficult to find any good resources that showed data for multiple counties.
