The Top TenXW

1United StatesThe United States of America, or the U.S.A for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states. 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence in 1776 with more.

The United States is famous for everything! We have the largest economy. We have a lot of technology, such as iPads, phones, laptops, and and so much more. We get lots of news every day, and the average citizen has much technology and freedom. I don't know how else to say more, but we have too much. I do not intend to brag, but all of this is true. U.S.A.

No matter how bad or good the US is, its the most famous country almost everyone know

Our culture is exported to the world. You are probably reading this using an American operating system, with an American CPU, with an American web browser, using the internet that American founded and still runs. You could be anywhere in the world (expect maybe Cuba, North Korea and Iran) and find American products quite easily, you couldn't say this about any other nation in the world. The same can be said with American fashion, music, films and television. They are popular throughout the world. When an American Presidential election happens, the whole world takes notice; this happens nowhere else in the world. How many people have drank Coke or Pepsi; or eaten at a McDonalds; or worn Nike shoes; or like an American cultural icon?

This doesn't even really get into the sheer size of the US economy or the military or our geopolitical reach or fact that we're still the world's only superpower.

There are many problems with the US but let's be honest; even then we're paid ...more

2FranceFrance, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. more.

France is the most visiting country on earth, a lot of variety for landscape, the best food ever and the French way of life is very famous

Amazing country, simply beautiful, very open minded. Don't listen to the stereotypes, all my encounters with French people were always really pleasant, I mean you'll have the equivalent of American rednecks everywhere, France too, but I've never met any.

Wonderful and famous country.
So various landscapes, there some villages which look to be villages of medieval tales.
France is like a dream, we had the chance to go to Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora and Marquesas Islands. Besides the fact that these places are simply marvelous, splendid, is so amazing to know that it is part of France.
Here you have among the most beautiful coral reefs (UNESCO) and gorgeous beaches in the world.

France is so different, has a so rich culture and history and so peaceful areas to live in, it is the bucolic country.

And if you need you BBQ, no problems, here you can eat everything you want.
It is No 2 for McDonalds in the world after USA.

It's true that French are not the best in spoken English, but they are not the worst compare to some countries around.
And most of people speak only their own native language, so it's something understandable.

We plan to live there at least half of the time.

France is just one of the best places I have been too. I tried so many French food that I got so hooked to them!

To be a pain it's actually called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. - ParasN2000

It makes me quite emotional, thinking how this one small island has managed to shape the entire world. And it can't be argued that we didn't shape it, we ruled over 1/3 of it at one point. The mother tongue of a small island race is taught in schools across the world.How on earth are India and the US above the United Kingdom? We gave birth to them, for god sake. Everything that's great about those countries were introduced or created because of the UK. How's everyone reading this now? On the internet. Who created the internet? Tim Berners Lee. What nationality was he? British. We invented more everyday things than any other country. We started the industrial revolution. Our music is listened to across the world, our literature is read across the worlds. London is the most visited city in the world. The reasons are endless. - englishlady

The first man in space, ingenious art, intelligent, educated people, the brilliant scientists. I know that Russia was born from the ashes in 2000 and Russia continue to develop. For 12 years, look what has become Russia, Russia is regaining the status of super power and will not stop. I admire Russia. I wish you good luck and prosperity to Russia. (from Germany with love)

Only in Russia happened many things that never happened to world. I think it will be weird if someone didn't heard about Russia.

Russia is a nice country but the people are getting ruder and ruder, something like 70% of the people use swear words EVERY DAY, the other 30% use swear words once every 2 days, I used to like Russia, their president is nice but he starts insulting other countries, also he said they could win the world war without any help from other countries, and the people, they just keep shouting: Russia IS THE BEST, ALL OTHER NATIONS ARE STUPID, BO, see, that's why I don't really like the people.

I agree. Russians are very intelligent. Unlike people who don't know that Ukraine IS NOT in Russia

The people are generally kind and easygoing and multiculturalism is a big part of Australia, being the second most multicultural country in the world. It's also in the top 10 safest and best places to live and grow up and the top 10 places to visit. The cities are exciting and Australia is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and one of the best educated countries. Also I think we have the perf. Weather most of the time and as a matter of fact, we do have snow! One downside in case you hadn't noticed, some of have big egos and talk to much but that's ok! Because we love our country(... Generally).

Australia is Famous for fun, although the most dangerous and driest country on the Planet, we are still very fun, a the same time, we have the most liveable cities in the world and we have lots of theme parks and beaches and lakes perfect for any sport, not only do we have dry deserts, we have Extravagant Rain Forest that will put you in awe, the amount of amazing animals we have in Australia and only in Australia is Amazing. As well as the 12th best Economy in the World, we have Brisbane city, the city of Casinos, Lights and jobs, this city may not be fun, but you can get good jobs and opportunity's and Brisbane nearly funds everything in Australia, Brisbane is also famous for the Education it provides and in the north, there is the calm beach filled Sunshine Coast, and in the south, the Gold Coast, the most famous hot spot in the Southern Hemisphere. Australia is definitely the Best place to live

The second most developed nation behind Norway. One of the richest countries on earth with the 12th highest gdp (with a population of only about 23 million! ). The second least densely populated country. Basically every type of climate; we have snowy alps little did you know. A highly educated society with long lives and beautiful cities. Of Australia's 5 major cities on the list of most developed the least developed Australian city is brisbane (the 12th most developed city on earth) whereas melbourne is the most developed city on earth. Perth 9th, Adelaide 6th, Sydney 7th. A culture that promotes equality over having a large house and lots of money. I wouldn't move elsewhere, the world doesn't seem as relaxed and free as home. There are more statistics that show this is the greatest land to live however this would get a bit overboard if I referenced them all. Come move to Australia, it's called the lucky country for a reason :).

13SingaporeSingapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

Singapore is almost the safest country to live in. It has the second lowest crime rate in the world. Also, it has high standards of living, and has good alliance to other countries. Singapore may be small, but much efforts are made to beautify the country. Finally, Singapore is a multi racial country with lots of tourist. Therefore the tourists can easily get help, as I guess there are people that speaks different languages. Singapore feels like a mixed country of British, America, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, India, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and many different countries.

Singapore is the best country! Multi-religious, Awesome Singlish! Singlish is made out of many languages combined! Singapore also have Universal Studios and Singapore Flyer. The fact that peace is really peaceful down here, although we are related to one of the most emotionless countries

Singapore is a very nice country

Absolutely love this country

Awesome! Simply awesome! Compare Italy with other countries is simply impossible, Italy is the center of all... Wonderful place. Love from Germany

Wherever they immigrate Italian people create a small neighbor then it becomes Italia town, the only people in the planet who do not integrate with others. If you let them in your country, you are pretty much done in 50 years. All they think about is business and money. They are the least generous people on earth and most selfish at all.

They cannot and refuse to integrate behaviors or respect the rules of the country they live in. They are just among the worst migrants but unfortunately they are the most numerous migrants all over the world.

The most wonderful, interesting and amazing country in the world...! I love It very much in spite of I'm not Italian...! - ITALIELI

18GreeceGreece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Greece is one of the FIRST nations and countries which appear in history. Findings show that our civilization exists for over 10.000 years.

Top philosophers were born in Greece. Modern Greece has done some mistakes, but never harmed anyone. Learning our History until now days, shows the heroic spirit of our people and our nation

Worldwide known for the philosophers, mathematicians, thinkers etc born in this country. Home to democracy and other values. Cornerstone to medicine. Cradle of civilization but also known and respected for its long and ancient history. Additionally it is situated in a very strategic point joining Europe, Asia and Africa commonly referred to as the "three continents' crossroads" - a reason for strong controversy among countries as USA, Russia and China over their internal influence and deriving/respective rights.

I think they are known because of the peoples warm personalities and their ancient history, which is heard in school and influences a lot of movies in Hollywood
