Worst Countries to Live In
The Top TenXW
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
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 ...more
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.
Such a terrible place! They believe in having more nuclear power than having proper education. Nearly 1 million people die a year because of starvation. The government simply doesn't care cause it cares more about having nuclear power than being the worst country in the world.V333 Comments
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.
Somalia became the worst country since the 1990 of the war. Now, it's pirate invested. If they are Islamic, then why are they killing innocent people? That's my question. I can't believe that some of my relatives are from this excuse for a country. Now, my uncle is threatening me to speak Somali, while I'm good at Arabic and English. 'enough said.
Aargh I hate this countryV111 Comments
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
Afghanistan is land of tragedies. US/NATO occupation and empowerment of Islamic fundamentalism by Pentagon has made the country a slather-house and a mafia state.V102 Comments
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!
Lol, You Should be ashamed of yourself, calling yourself a Pakistani, you hypocrite.
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'.
Even in Main Cities Like Karachi on an average 10 people die
People die everywhere everyday idiot stop blaming it on Pakistan - shahnoorrox
Being Pakistani myself, I'm ashamed to have even the slightest relation with these people. They're rude, incredibly judgmental, and practically barbaric, as seen by some of the laws of the land. Add in the mass of pedophiles, kidnappers, killers, etc., and you start to see why extreme religious concentration is never good for the population. I've met fellow Muslims in Pakistan who can't hold a candle in terms of humane characteristics to some American Muslims I know.V381 Comments
TOTALLY. If you're looking to go round the world, do NOT go here.
We are still in war there it never stops they need to make some friends other than themselves
Of course! But don't forget to add Indonesia to the list. It's horrible, guys. Damn. Horrible. Pollution is what we should call it.
Never go here unless you want to be killed.V83 Comments
Totally with that war going on in there how can the people stand it?
Why is it not at the top?!
Syria is in the middle of a war would you really prefer to live in Syria rather than India. Also Syria is in an economic recession. People were chemically bombed a few days ago!
Syria was better under Bashar al-Assad than ISIS. But now thanks to the Western intervention into Syria (led by the United States), the country is now a failed state and its migrants will flood into Europe. From there they will create the Islamic State of European Nations.
I feel bad for Syria its number 6 on the list because of Isis I feel so bad for every Syrian citizens :.(V83 Comments
Well, I live in Sudan... I don't want to say it is the worst place in the world, because I believe it is relevant and to be frank I didn't live anywhere else to compare, but Sudan falling economy, wars, corrupted government and race issue for sure are not positive thing, the people lost their sense of mortality with semi civilized cities for those who didn't lose it for war in Darfur and the South. Yet, knowing that Sudan is a huge country living is not the same across the country. For example those who live in Darfur are as far from the center as for people living in other countries you feel the heat of war through news and refuges. Doesn't mean living in big cities is that great either. Family and friends which used to be the main value behind living in the country now disappeared with most people seeking better income in Gulf, EU or USA. Now I have more friends in any city in Saudi Arabia than in Sudan.
I don't believe that a person would be happier changing where they live ...more
How is Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and China above Sudan? Read my lips. GE-NO-CIDE! - 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).
With the ongoing civil war in South Sudan, it has to climb this ranking.V24 Comments
My country but its government sucks
I lived in ZImbabwe my whole life and I've lived in the United States, so I have something to compare it to. In many ways it's actually better. It's free, safe, and easy to live if you understand how the country works
Run by a disgusting, manipulative pedophile.
Because it's horribleV30 Comments
I'm Saudi... the problem is not the Gov the problem is the people.. this country has the ability to be developed country due to it's magnificent natural sources wealth (3rd) after US and Russia only!.. but the problem is the religion extremism here.. they think they are the chosen people to guide the whole Muslim world! Every religion talk is thrown in your face in any technology exist. thus no fun in this country ever.. no movies theater or any kind of fun! And most people he are uneducated because the father here once have money he buys everything to his sons thus killing the son's will to educate killing the rule "no pain no gain" and the son became dump in school (education here is free and acceptable) (not very good... and yes the CULTURE keep the people back.. the most sexist country ever exist.. no woman drive.. women spend 9 of 10 of their lives sleeping and in houses.. a lot of women suicide here... it's hell for woman here.. it's because of the extremist culture and ...more
I live there, I'm not aware of any worst than this country
I don't know why the UAE is above saudi, I live in the UAE. I also don't understand how such a purid, vile county like saudi where they STONE PEOPLE TO DEATH AND WHERE WOMEN HAVE NO RIGHTS is below countries like Australia, Canada and the USA.
One of the last places in the world I would want to live in.
Dangerous disgusting muslim hell hole.V84 Comments
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, ...more
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.
Canada is betterV201 Comments
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 ...more
Population isn't that big of a deal. Netherlands, Bangladesh and Japan have a higher per capita population density. India's actually a pretty good place to live if you have money. I've lived in Los Angeles for many years, so I know how the west looks. I've been back in Chennai for over 5 years and I kind of like it here as well. Sure, I miss a bunch of things, but if you have an inverter in your house, you can deal with the rare power cut. Plus labour is so cheap here, it's actually awesome how you can live like a king with some money. Also, places like Thailand are a couple of hours away. Living like an average Indian would probably suck, well my family used to live here many years back and it was still pretty good. I guess a lot of negative people comment in these threads. Maybe they're talking about "north India" - I agree that it's bad compared to the south. - arviman
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 ...more
Fully agree 100% with the comment above. Any Indian who disagrees, should not even consider worth living/existing.
The streets are filled with rubbish and it smells everywhere you go
Only the streets you have been to, smells. It might be because of you, I don't know. To tell you the truth only some streets smell and you been to all of them.
Yes india is racist and corrupt.V555 Comments
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.
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 ...more - williamtalavou
Australia has no export trade! The Government imports everything and sold out every major company. I've torn up my birth certificate and would rather call myself a Persian than Australian!V206 Comments
Yemen is the worst country in there world. Only men should go to Yemen because they stone and hide all the women. It is the second worst country in the world for women. Al Quada also is very prevalent in this hell-hole of a country.
This is how all countries in the Arabian Peninsula would look like if they had no oil.
So untrue Yemen should be named the world best country

No order, low income, and lots of crime. Its government is weak and powerless with warlords widespread.
People have low income less people are educated and lots of crime happen in a single day
Blame Belgian colonialism for the poverty going on there.
Belgium's fault.V26 Comments
Maybe it shouldn't be on the top, but it should be in like the top 5. My parents were born there, but I was born in the U.S. People in this stupid country give so much respect to white people (I'm not being racist). I mean you can't even cross the road in this country if your not white. And the traffic is just horrible. It 's caused by stupid impatient bus and taxi drivers. I couldn't eat outside food because I always got food poisoning. And the worst thing is the way they treat Muslims. My Muslim friend was a soccer coach at an international school. One day one of the parents came to enroll her child at the soccer training and she asked whether he was Muslim or Christian. He said that religion doesn't have anything to do with football. Then she said that she was just asking, so he admitted he was Muslim. The next day the coach asked the kids to bring some balls from home. That woman's kid lost his ball at training and she blamed the coach and called him a Muslim criminal. After that ...more
Beautiful country untouched by development the people are really nice and welcoming. The government lets them down
Everybody may love their country. But they will really (really) hate their government.It's true for us. Our country is ruled by stupid guys (Army generals). Laws are stupid. Our government has fully permission to take of our home, food, money even our lives. If you don't believe you can check : How our governments kill their citizens.

But Iran is rich and one of the safest counter in medial east
I am from Iran and I should tell to those who say that Iran is a bad place for living that please don't say anything when you don't know about something. you hear in news that Iranian are terrorist or they support terrorism in Middle East. you hear that Iran is not safe but that is not correct. you think that because Iranian are Muslim they are arab but that is not correct.we are Persian and we have a rich culture. we have a long history and great empires like Achaemenid and sasanian and the greatest kings like Cyrus the great. our people are very kind and hospitable. Iran has a lot of old and beautiful places you should visit once in your life. so don't make a hasty judgment and learn more about Iran and Islam.
It's true that Iran is not the best but it isn't worse than China!
I actually live here, it's terrible. Not as bad as many other countries, but still pretty awful.V111 Comments
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 ...more
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 ...more
I live in Bangladesh and I can say that this is the one worst countries in the world to live in, and the people of this country are the biggest hypocrites in the whole world. Whenever you talk to a people he will try to make you realize that he is better than you in some aspect of life, and again this country is severely poor with no natural resources, Bangladesh have to take loan from other countries or world bank for any high cost project. There is also no geographical diversity in this country, if you come in this country and travel a random place you will see drains filled with waste, waste on road, on road etc. And more on this country claims itself to be filled with greenery but it has less than 17% of forest floor which is one of the lowest in the sub continent.

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 ...more
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.
I think Egypt should be on top. At least in top 3. It is a huge mess. Imagine, even the capital is in worst condition, what to tell about small cities?! People are poor and envying each other smiling into face but with evil thoughts inside. Never trust them. Maybe because of that they can't go up till now even though they used to have one of the earliest civilization.

Simply, Sri Lanka is not a worse country with the comparison too others.
Sri Lanka is a country which has good people because I've been there and I don't know why is it in here...
Seriously people, what do you even know about this country? Stinky?! Worst country?! Drugs? Murderers? Rapists? Racism? Dirty? Loud?! Most of all LESBIANS?! Have you lost your minds?! Do you even know what happens inside this country?! You people talk like they aren't any murders, rapists, drugs in the heavens you live. Is it a utopia? Please prove it then. If you have crappy mouths please just keep it shout, people like you are the worse even they thought otherwise. Sri Lanka can be a poor country than yours but they have a rich heart, mind and culture than yours. In Sri Lanka people have really good manners than a some so what RICH countries. At least they know how to behave and be polite. They have rich manners, behavior and they live very simply. Some people don't like to see other religions as acceptable but you have no right to disrespect their religion. If you're already doing it, others can see how you observe your own religion.

Lots of the people on here have no idea what they are talking about. Australia? Really? It has a very untouched eco-system and is beautiful with little violence. I live in Africa. The CAR is a very bad place, but it doesn't deserve to be nuked. The poverty can be stopped. So people who sit on their butts in America living in the "hood," come see what real violence is like.
Stop giving aid to Africa. Period.
Otherwise they will breed more poor people. They start off as being helpless and vulnerable. But once they get aid, they will grow up to be sub-human, materialistic, race/religious baiting, lying, sexist pigs.
They will turn any prosperous country into a uncivilised, and divided third world country plagued with poverty, crime, and corruption.
So, you're saying all of Africa deserves to rot and die? What if you were in the exact same position, and people made a comment not to give aid to YOU? That, and Africa needs to be educated so the people can be stronger. You may be the sub-human, materialistic person in this case, if you won't give to the less fortunate. - Turkeyasylum
