The Top Ten

North Korea
I have a courage to shoot that jung il and go to heaven. the poor, starving citizens did nothing wrong. its their leader's problem
Probably one of the worst prison systems in the world, if not THE worst of all. Oh, I'm not talking about the country itself (North Korea alone could be considered as a prison) but it's home to the worst concentration camps in history since the Nazi Death Camps went out of commission. Not to mention one million people starve to death every year in North Korea. If you ever visit North Korea one day, make sure you won't wake up in the morning thinking you died and went to hell, you're still in North Korea. That's probably the best word to describe that cesspit; Hell.
Yes, unquestionably and without a doubt, North Korea is the absolute worst country on this earth.I.. I don't even know where to start; oh yah, the leadership. The North Korean Kim dynasty is a chain of brutal, tyrannical, belligerent, barbaric, idiotic, imbecilic fools who clearly care nothing for they're people and only about themselves, money, sex and nuclear missiles. The North Korean economy is a disaster, and would be nonexistent if not for they're illegal exports of fake Viagra, heroine, sexual slavery and weapons, which are present throughout other dictatorships around the world. They basically force young "volunteers" to go work unpaid in mines and other industries in third world dictatorships, as a corrupt method of getting other countries to to they're good side. Kim Jong Un and his thugs own like 99.9% of the wealth while his people starve. Almost the entire population of the country are hordes up into collectivized farms and or prison camps while those 100 or so lucky enough to be born into the families of a North Korean official live in the almost completely empty city of Pyongyang. There are absolutely no civil rights. The police can arrest and kill you for doing anything and there is nothing you or anyone you know can do about it. You can only eat, drink, ware, say and think what the government wants you to. You can't even have your own hairstyle. There is no welfare whatsoever and everyone basically are forced to work from birth to death. If you are caught conspiring to over through the government (AKA reading a banned book or something) you are thrown into what can only be described as concentration camps where you are regularly tortured in some of the cruelest and most savage ways imaginable. And if that wasn't bad enough, your family, your friends, everyone you know and love is arrested and brought into the camp just because of something you did or didn't do. And even after you die, your kids will remain in the same concentration camp, and so will they're kids. Only your great grandchildren get let out, after three generations of imprisonment, meaning that there are still South Korean POWs and they're descendants from the Korean War living in them. All of this while Kim Jong Un lives in a palace, eats food ironed form all over the world, gets drunk and does absolutely nothing to run the country accept make a speech about how the west will be destroyed by the mighty North Korean military. Speaking of the military, the only reason it is so big is because people join to get free food for them and they're families. All of the money goes into building outdated weaponry from the 50's and crappy nuclear bombs that can't reach Hawaii, let alone Washington DC. Every time I think about my problems, my homework, my annoying siblings. My teachers. My grades, my parents, everything that may be bothering me, I just think to myself "at least I don't live in North Korea" and smile. It actually makes me feel better.

2Afghanistan
1 - Why is Australia on here?
2 - Afghanistan sucks completely. I pity those who live there
I agree Australia shouldn't be here on the list ranked top 10 or 20 but Afghanistan my birth country SHOULD NOT BE 2nd what's wrong with people? I completely disagree and in my opinion Afghanistan should be 4th or 5th because Syria and Iraq should be replacing the rank. Afghanistan does not suck, don't accuse the country, accuse the Taliban ;-;

AussieAfghanRules

I don't wont to be unkind about someone else's mind and ideals but how is Australia even on this list. You wont see snakes in major cities or normal towns. In the country side just stay on the foot path. You can out run a snake.

But as idi admin said: you can't outrun a bullet:. And there's a lot of bullets flying out guns along with land mines in Afghanistan along with religious extremists. And religion has caused more war than anything else.

I live in Australia and I love it. You wont hear an afghan say that.

Very underestimated country. Not the best... But not the worst by all means. I would put it #11 on this list. (and I am an american)The worst is Uganda. The LRA are not soldiers... There murderers

3Somalia
When you land at Mogadishu's international airport, the first form you fill out asks for name, address, and caliber of weapon. Believe it or not, this disaster of a city, the capital of Somalia, still gets a few commercial flights. Some haven't fared so well. The wreckage of a Russian cargo plane shot down in 2007 still lies crumpled at the end of the runway. Beyond the airport is one of the world's most stunning monuments to conflict: block after block, mile after mile, of scorched, gutted-out buildings. Mogadishu's Italianate architecture, once a gem along the Indian Ocean, has been reduced to a pile of machine-gun-chewed bricks. Somalia has been ripped apart by violence since the central government imploded in 1991. Eighteen years and 14 failed attempts at a government later, the killing goes on and on and on -- suicide bombs, white phosphorus bombs, beheadings, medieval-style stonings, teenage troops high on the local drug called khat blasting away at each other and anything in between. Even U.S. cruise missiles occasionally slam down from the sky. It's the same violent free-for-all on the seas. Somalia's pirates are threatening to choke off one of the most strategic waterways in the world, the Gulf of Aden, which 20,000 ships pass through every year. These heavily armed buccaneers hijacked more than 40 vessels in 2008, netting as much as $100 million in ransom. It's the greatest piracy epidemic of modern times.

In more than a dozen trips to Somalia over the past two and a half years, I've come to rewrite my own definition of chaos. I've felt the incandescent fury of the Iraqi insurgency raging in Fallujah. I've spent freezing-cold, eerily quiet nights in an Afghan cave. But nowhere was I more afraid than in today's Somalia, where you can get kidnapped or shot in the head faster than you can wipe the sweat off your brow. From the thick, ambush-perfect swamps around Kismayo in the south to the lethal labyrinth of Mogadishu to the pirate den of Boosaaso on the Gulf of Aden, Somalia is quite simply the most dangerous place in the world.

The whole country has become a breeding ground for warlords, pirates, kidnappers, bomb makers, fanatical Islamist insurgents, freelance gunmen, and idle, angry youth with no education and way too many bullets. There is no Green Zone here, by the way -- no fortified place of last resort to run to if, God forbid, you get hurt or in trouble. In Somalia, you’re on your own. The local hospitals barely have enough gauze to treat all the wounds.

The mayhem is now spilling across Somalia's borders, stirring up tensions and violence in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Eritrea, not to mention Somalia's pirate-infested seas. The export of trouble may just be beginning. Islamist insurgents with al Qaeda connections are sweeping across the country, turning Somalia into an Afghanistan-like magnet for militant Islam and drawing in hard-core fighters from around the world. These men will eventually go home (if they survive) and spread the killer ethos. Somalia's transitional government, a U.N. -santioned creation that was deathly ill from the moment it was born four years ago, is about to flatline, perhaps spawning yet another doomed international rescue mission. Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed, the old war horse of a president backed by the United States, finally resigned in December after a long, bitter dispute with the prime minister, Nur Hassan Hussein. Ostensibly, their conflict was about a peace deal with the Islamists and a few cabinet posts. In truth, it may be purely academic. By early this year, the government's zone of control was down to a couple of city blocks. The country is nearly as big as Texas.

Just when things seem as though they can't get any worse in Somalia, they do. Beyond the political crisis, all the elements for a full-blown famine -- war, displacement, drought, skyrocketing food prices, and an exodus of aid workers -- are lining up again, just as they did in the early 1990s when hundreds of thousands of Somalis starved to death. Last May, I stood in the doorway of a hut in the bone-dry central part of the country watching a sick little boy curl up next to his dying mother. Her clothes were damp. Her breaths were shallow. She hadn't eaten for days. "She will most likely die, " an elder told me and walked away.

It's crunch time for Somalia, but the world is like me, standing in the doorway, looking in at two decades of unbridled anarchy, unsure what to do. Past interventions have been so cursed that no one wants to get burned again. The United States has been among the worst of the meddlers: U.S. forces fought predacious warlords at the wrong time, backed some of the same predacious warlords at the wrong time, and consistently failed to appreciate the twin pulls of clan and religion. As a result, Somalia has become a graveyard of foreign-policy blunders that have radicalized the population, deepened insecurity, and pushed millions to the brink of starvation.
In all honesty you are so ignorant that its not even funny. It's actually pretty sad. I've been to Somalia and it is not as bad as you make it seem. no one asks for a caliber of weapon... the country is on its way to retribution. although I do agree its once gem-like appearance would truly allow it to be called the "pearl of the Indian Ocean", is now reduced to rubble and machine gun destruction. all I'm trying to say is complete ignorance is not needed
This is why anarchy is stupid. 4 million have died since it lost its government.
Famine, Anarchy, Homeless, Islam. None of these work and putting them together just makes it worse.

4Pakistan
Damn this is my country but it is one of the worst places to live!
Pakistan Taliban school attack kills 141, including 132 children - as it happened (The Guardian, 16 Dec 2014): 'Taliban sought no terms, began shooting immediately'.
I am a Pakistani, and this is the first time I've been here. I came here seven months ago and honestly everyday I just want to kill myself. It's 46 degrees in Lahore the electricity goes out nearly 12 hours a day. The people are unlettered, bigoted and ill-mannered and have the mentality of probably the 18th century. Extremely belligerent. The news is unbearable, people dying everywhere in blasts, killing, beatings, burnings. And don't even get me started on the religious extremism. THIS COUNTRY IS HELL ON EARTH!

lassidoggy

Among the current Top 10, Somalia and North Korea are rather accurate choices. Middle Eastern countries are NOT inherently bad because they are middle eastern, many people actually enjoy living there. If I remember correctly, it were the Europeans who were adamant about leaving their countries and immigrating, (especially to USA).
This is kinda messed up in the South Sudan there is mass genocide and in places like China and South Africa there is a fair bit of wealth

9India
HOW DID INDIA GET IN HERE?
All those of who are Indians and think India is the worst, Has anyone of you done anything to make it better? But you have definitely made your nation earn a bad name by posting such stuff.
I am natural (born and raised) citizen of India. The current condition of the nation is due to its so called varied diversity in population.

Every other person in India wants put blame on an politician/government for its issues like corruption, poverty, lack-of-quality in education etc. , but no one wants to elect a right candidate nor they are interested in having the election policies changed.

Most of the population is literally unproductive to ever-developing nation. There is no one who wants to talk about reducing the population (there by getting 80% of the issues resolved) but many speak of changing constitution.

It has become an dead-easy game for politicians to classify citizens by Religion and exploit Caste System (which 90% of the world's population doesn't understand).

Despite an lead in IT, but & many other sectors, hardly 3% of population pays income tax and rest-of-so-called-citizens expect politicians and government to respond to just about all their needs.

If India has any issues, its not because of its law makers/constitution/law but only because of its citizens. It should be at 1 (Its been 66 years since not-so-independence and God knows when will it be developed).
India sucks. Truth hurts, India suffers from over population (the population of Brazil and USA combined doesn't beat India population) the majority are narrow minded and believe in superstitions, they are also very racist and they think its not wrong, they have caste system which 90% of other countries don't understand. The country is ruled by corrupt officials who only care about money. The education system is messed up, the way teachers teach their students, boys should have short hair also they have the most ridiculous uniforms, if guy has long hair he is called a girl also a girl sporting short is called boy cut (like seriously what is a boy cut) and these students grow up with this mind set and become the narrow minded citizens of tomorrow. The schools are the main culprits, India also suffers from lack of clean drinking water facility and toilets. The people lie, cheat and steal and are VERY perverted, crime rates are high especially against woman, no woman can walk around freely without getting dirty stares from everybody. The people have no sense of social politeness, if a couple is walking down the streets people stare, if a guy has a hairstyle which is out of the norm people stare (long hair, anime visual kei hair) and also there are no safe garbage disposals and the roads suck. India is one of the wrist countries to live in, even their form of entertainment sucks.
Fully agree 100% with the comment above. Any Indian who disagrees, should not even consider worth living/existing.

10China
Yes, the Chinese government does have multiple flaws. Yes, the government is corrupt. But some of the comments here are so rude and offensive, and it's upsetting to read something that generalizes a group of people. First of all, I bet that half of these people here haven't been to China before. You really can't judge something until you've learned about it, visited it, gotten diverse views on it, or etc. Also, I'd just like to point out that the women's rights in China are much better than the United States's. There's also no "baby killing" policy. Yes, there's a strict One Child policy but there have been some reforms. Having one child is a comfortable option but certainly isn't a mandatory choice. Also, saying that "All Chinese people are rude" is an awful generalization. First of all, how can you tell if a random stranger is Chinese? Many people from neighboring countries look similarly to people from China. Also, a small group of people from China may be rude, but not EVERYONE from that particular country is loud-mouthed and arrogant. When you say that a whole ethnic group is racist, you're basically being racist yourself. I'm not saying that I support the flawed government and its corruptness. But please read more into a topic and educate yourself on a subject before you start to criticize and judge. Don't make an offensive comment targeting a certain group of almost arbitrary people before you start to learn about them. Every group of people has bad people and good people. We're not all that bad, we promise.
I find that the Chinese are torturers, they think they're better than everybody else and can judge when in fact their courts are all staffed by murderers in uniforms. They copy products from other nations because they have created a culture which stifles and dissuades creative thought, and brands anything non-government authorized as "Subversive". China used to be a beautiful country, now it's just another Industrial Skag Heap, not unlike many other "Developed" countries. Development is more than just building crap and being rich, civilization is more than using force of arms to conquer your neighbours. Everybody hates China, even the people who make money from working with the communists regrets cutting deals with them.
They are living financially aside for the fact that they were very indecent, for an instance, if you get bump by a Chinese, there's no sorry, not even a glimpse.
[Newest]China is has bad pollutions, they drink contaminated water, it's illegal to watch anything that involves time travel, reincarnation is forbidden as long as you got permission from the stupid government, millions of babies are abandoned due to the one child policy What's wrong with 2 or 3 kids? What makes me hate China even more is that they treat animals like freakish rubbish. I'm an animal lover myself but I cannot believe that animal cruelty is considered a freakish joke to them

12Democratic Republic of the Congo
HERMES IS FROM HERE
Another African country that doesn't deserve financial Aid, only more AIDs, just like Sudan and any West African country (e.G. Nigeria, Ghana etc).

Congo has a corrupt political regime with useless, uncivilized people who eventually become uncivilized in any country they seek refuge.

West Africans and Sub-Saharan Africans are the worst kind of people and can turn any first world country into a ghetto (with race-baiting, scams, fraud, drug/weapon dealing/trading worldwide, more welfare dependency, producing 5 or more poor, uncivilized children into society, sham marriages to gain citizenship, violent gang crimes etc).
No order, low income, and lots of crime. Its government is weak and powerless with warlords widespread.

14Bangladesh
I am Bangladeshi born but brought up in Kuwait from early age and now live in U.K.

In contrast to middle eastern and western life which I have experienced; I can honestly say that yes Bangladesh sucks!. It is not the land which is green and lush but the people themselves. Most of the Bengalis are the stupidest of the stupid and full of greed then any other civilized people I have met. Thieves and muggers are every where.

My mother (who leaves in Bangladesh now after leaving Kuwait in 1992) along with my sister and brother in-law almost got killed in an armed robbery in our house last year. The armed robbers forced their way into steel gates and toughened doors at night and stole every thing at gun point (gold, cash, computers, mobile phones) with in 15 minutes of terror. Our house is in the middle of commercial area with surrounding populated residency. When my brother in-law cried for help at night, no one came forward to help nor even called the police via their mobile.

Once when the whole drama was over and my family was left in distraught, than more than 2000 + locals came to see them next day giving full moral support. This is the unity of Bengalis and this is the true cowardness in them. Tigers during the day and cats at night.

No law or order and nothing gets done at official level without bribe. From street foot path to official levels; they are all beggars.

I used to visit Bangladesh every year to see my family and tried very hard to love the country as I do have some childhood memories. But I have failed, I just hate it's people.

It is the only place on earth where the political thugs will burn you alive if you are an unlucky bus driver caught up in a strike ( hartaal) even though you got nothing to do with politics and minding your own business. They care less of a human life.

They burn cars, businesses, houses just to make silly political point at the expense of innocent Bangladeshis all around the year.

Bangladesh really sucks!
Been to Bangladesh multiple times. I have been to over 50 countries including Somalia, Swaziland, Eritrea, and Zimbabwe. Bangladesh easily takes the cake as the most corrupt, inefficient, misogynist country I have ever been to. For every dollar you spend I feel like 90 cents go to graft in some way shape or form. Strikes all the time that render it impossible to travel anywhere. Crippled transport networks that sees 100 KM trips turn into protracted 8 hour nightmares. The most obscene and insulting 'democracy' I have ever seen - a protracted catfight between two entirely irrelevant harpies and their equally disdainful families who could not give a hoot about anybody else but themselves and their petty problems. Bizarre internecine violence. Acid throwing. Child marriage. Constant diarrhea from eating with unwashed hands. I went three times, got scabies every time despite never touching an animal. Without a doubt the most disgusting repression of women anywhere - it is worse systemic repression than female genital mutilation in E. Africa.

The worst thing is the culture of absolution that exists - nobody takes responsibility for any of their terrible actions or decisions. Everything is a blame game and finger pointing puerility. It's truly the worst place I have ever been.
I am a Bangladeshi citizen and honestly I agree with your view. Shame that our people have more pride than logic. For example they blame paypal for not starting their services in the country when the government is solely responsible for the paypal debacle. And secondly arrogance runs rampant in our society, like for example they hate anything modern, forward thinking, new age ideas; which is exactly why we are among the most disturbing group of people in existence

15Egypt
I am an Egyptian and I will just put a summary of the worst things in Egypt.

1- Government- they just don't care about what the people want and need, they can fix the country and make it a better place, THEY CAN.. I feel like they are jackasses with red monkey butts

2- traffic- it's just horrible, traffic jams everywhere, speed bumps look like they are barriers for horses to jump above them, accidents on a highway are seen everyday and public transport drivers are driving like they are in a NASCAR race with rocket engines strapped on each sides of the car

Garbage & Trash- if you wonder around in cairo you'll find everywhere beneath your legs soda cans, shopping bags, dirt, you'll also find horse poop every where since people sell fruits and vegetables with 'that platform with 4 wheels strapped to a horse that I can't remember the name of in English'

Really the best place to live in Egypt is the country side, the farms, clean air.. only problem is that the farmers have small education.
Worst country to live in Christians and Tourists are attacked on a regular basis. Christians have no right and right violations against immigrants. No regulation companies on a regular basis commit human rights against their workers committing slaved labor and low wages. No regulation on product quality companies steal consumers blind. High inflation, food is expensive, people are eating sand and dieing.
Worst country in the world and the people are such show-offs. Women hate each other and always backbite. Cairo is the only place to live even though its so crowded and other cities are full of garbage everywhere.
[Newest]Egypt is the worst place to live seriously like it's so disgusting and stinky it should be no. 1 on this list people are so poor and I only like rich people because I'm rich and I like to stay that way.

17Australia
Australia

THE GOODS.

It's one of the sports capital of the world. We main event Rugby, Cricket, Football, Soccer, Swimming, Formula 1, Tennis, Gymnastic, Golf, Ironman.

Homeless people (rare) make more money off the streets than some countries do with daily wages even weekly for the fair few.. No starvation here and there's welfare support, the dole, all sorts of government financial help eligible for the many.

Australia is huge and the outback is beautiful. The beaches here is top notch some of the best in the world, definitely a great idea to travel around this country with family. The weather can range from very hot to very stormy but that's the beauty of it.

Our health care system one of the best in the world, our transportation also one of the best in the world. I live in a suburb called Prahran, we have trams, trains, buses, taxis, a path for cyclist there's no excuse to not get somewhere.

We have civil rights, a good law system to keep you SAFE but also the flexibility to venture on to many things without the hassle. We have work laws to protect you, to make sure you get treated fairly, get paid correctly and have efficient workforce safety.

We're are one of the most diverse countries in the world. We have people from all over the world coming here because of the opportunities and peace that other countries may not have.

THE BADS.

Some of our civil rights just go a bit too far, for example, you know you can be sued if someone hurt themselves while trying to break into your property.

Racism is common here but not as harsh as other countries. In the past 70 years Australia has gotten attention from Asylum Seekers within war-torn countries, corrupt government, famine, poverty. (Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Afghan, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudanese, Greece, China etc) creating a very diverse Australia. Jobs are being earned mostly by Indians and Chinese people which pushes Australian small businesses to fall which is why some Australians have a negative view on certain race. The cities have more Asians and Indians in it than actual Australians and they fear that one day it'll be a country of Foreigners dominating the country. Not only that, but they put their own laws into this country for example Sharia laws. A lot of foreigners don't like to adapt but spread their ideology among Australians so you can see that their is bitterness between.

And no we don't have the Worlds most dangerous animals etc. Our economy is not doing so well but it's doing better than most the world.

Probably the worst thing about this country is how ungrateful some people can be. They complain about anything really. We are too spoiled here to see for ourselves. Last time I was hungry (did not eat for half a day) I went to local Missionaries and got two $20 dollar supermarket vouchers not to mention a warehouse of donated clothes, beds, blankets, furniture up for grab. It's really easy living here and I'm very fortunate and lucky my mum came here from Tonga while it was still easy to get in. Yet I have to travel to other countries to get my own personal judgement.

williamtalavou

The 2 of you are completely wrong. Australia is ranked the best country in the world to live in and there is a reason. Australia is ranked the top 3 in each category. You never see "made in Australia" because Australia makes its wealth out of minerals. Australia is home to the most venomous spiders in the world but the are all in the rainforest. Australia also has the best cities in the world to live in. 4 cities that are in Australia are in the top 10. Every other country's city is only in the top 10 once. Australia is also home to the best city in the world to live in. MELBOURNE. 5th is Adelaide, 7th is Sydney and 9th is Perth. BEAT THAT. Australia is the best country to live in in the world. FACE THE FACTS.
Australia should not be on here! I don't live here - I used to. One person said there was spiders. Yeh there's dangerous spiders and other dangerous animals - but they live in the middle of nowhere and everyone lives on the coast in the main cities.

18Russia
Living in Russia... What a nightmare. Imagine living in a ugly, gray place that sometimes resembles an industrial complex, sometimes slums, sometimes a Gulag. Imagine living among ugly, drunken, primitive, boorish oafs who have no respect for each other and mostly malevolent intentions toward foreigners. Imagine living in a place, which's corruption and crime rates often surpass the worst African countries. Imagine living life in fear of corrupt, brutal and utterly demoralized government with recent history of atrocities. Imagine that you'd have to restort to petty lies every day, just to survive. And in the end, try to imagine it's 10 times worse than all I typed. Then you'll have a somewhat accurate idea of living in Russia.
Russia is a place you don't want to live, not even once. People are sadistic and plain stupid and drunk most of the time. Going alone at night ain't something to do. People are poor and don't want to learn any other language than Russian. Corruption is common. Ugly buildings looking like those cell blocks from prisons. Very high pollution. Accidents are common, you may know because of those "Mother Russia" videos. Definitely a place you don't want to live
Beig Russian, I'd say this is not only about the rich suppressing the poor. It's about the Russians themselves. I've been working as a translator, but I still can not find an appropriate translation for one Russian word which characterises the people here: 'khamstvo'. Dictionaries suggest it's 'boorishness' or 'rudeness', but it's not very exact. 'Khamstvo' is a way of living for the Russians - they're unpolite and don't respert other people's privacy at all. Being polite has been eliminated here during the Soviet times. Negative selection, I'd say.
