The Top TenXW

1North KoreaThe Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

People who voted for the United States over North Korea must be insane. In the United States you're free to practice your religious beliefs without worry of being murdered because the government decided to ignore human rights and outlaw the ability to follow it. In the United States you can preach about how your leader is terrible if that's your opinion without being thrown into jail, executed, or facing punishment. In the United States you don't have to avoid displaying any affection for your lover in public.

The fact of it is that in North Korea you do have to worry about the things listed above. North Korea oppresses, indoctrinates, and strips away the rights of its people. It's one of the worst places in the world and anybody who would speak about how places like India, America, or almost anywhere in the world are worse clearly need to reevaluate their history or their sense of morality.

You guys do not know what the definition of "worst" is. America has contributed so much to history and yes, it made huge mistakes in the past but it is nothing compared to North Korea. I am an Asian and I acknowledge that North Korea is the worst Country ever. From the very start, this Country was doomed. It fell into the hands of a corrupted man called Kim Il-Sung and it just fell from there. North Korea is now simply a propaganda piece held together by a government that prides themselves in brainwashing people. There is not one positive point I can say about this Country. North Korea disgusts me and I will openly and proudly say that North Korea is the worst Country I have ever known.

Imagine if the NK government and its people were personified as two people in an extremely abusive relationship. The government in North Korea is practically the perpetrator beating and severely hurting its poor defenseless innocent partner for no damn reason whatsoever. They are brutally attacked for making one TINY mistake, and if they try to escape, they are sentenced to death in the most horrific and sickening circumstances, it's beyond human comprehension. Lil Fat Boy is up there having the time of his life siting in his office, stuffing himself with all kinds of junk food, not giving even a smidge of regard to his people who are too brainwashed to realize the truth about him, while they are out there starving to death, forbidden to express themselves as who they are as people and living in fear in case they are executed for doing or saying something wrong. And that's the sad, disgusting reality, unfortunately. I mean, I can't even imagine how those people are living. But I'm ...more

Anyone who says USA is worse than North Korea is crazy. You can dislike Obama here. At least we don't get killed for PRACTICING RELIGION! It's so much worse than USA. And honestly... NO ONE from North Korea is going to be offended. They have no internet there.

2United 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 ...read more.

The United States is above Somalia. Syria, Russia, Iran and every country on Africa! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Why does everyone look at the United States in such a negative light. We are not the best country in the world, but we are certainly not the worst country. Not even close. I can name twenty countries off the top of my head that I would rather through myself off a cliff than live in. The USA is not one of them. Here are some reasons why the US is not the worst country in the world. We have the largest and most diverse population. People from all over Europe as well as parts of Central America, Asia and even places like Africa and the Middle East come here for better economic opportunity. Almost every religion has a stronghold in America. Christianity is historically the strongest faith here, but there are also lots of Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and a growing population of Atheists. Americans have learned to tolerate other religions and respect them. Racism in America is ...more

Well I don't think there should be any such list as Worst countries. I know every country has its own bad times. I'm from India and am really hurt to see it placed fourth. I know our country is going through a harsh time but I believe we will get over it. Finger crossed. Well I have no problem with United States it is a powerful nation. But the too much westernization it is bringing about in the world along with other European countries, I personally am not in favour with it. We Eastern countries are losing our feet and culture.

You say we are TERRIBLE. But, look who's insulting a country with stupid stereotypes? Some Americans are fat, some Americans are arrogant, and some Americans are racist. It's like saying all British have bad teeth, or the French love cheese. Besides, we have good intentions. We need to learn when some things have gone too far. At least most have a lot of pride in our country. We have many mistakes and problems that we need to fix, but so does every other country on this list.

It is one of the worst that thinks there the best.

China aren't poor or greedy or anything they're clever and intelligent and really polite people,much better than these western savage countries.

By far the worst country. The most Polluted, selfish, overpopulated, and, murderous (to animals) country. - WorldsWorst

4PakistanPakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia.. Islamabad is its capital and have a great population.. People speak Urdu and English as well..

I have been there but it is not that bad people are friendly and Islamabad is much cleaner than New Delhi. I am from Kabul, Afghanistan but, I don't hate it as much as you people say.

Definitely the worst. Pakistan should manage to get a first place in this.
Terror terror all around filth on the roads! People mean what more are the requirements for the fist place winner?

Paksitani people are very intelligent and sincere, they are always willing to help their brothers provided they are given a right direction. They are extremely helpful.

How on earth is the US higher up on this list than Pakistan? Is this a joke?

6AfghanistanAfghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Afghanistan has been really bad since Russia invaded and tried to take over in 1979. Russia wouldn't stop until they left in 1989, and when they did leave, Afghanistan was pretty much a disaster area because of the 10 years of war, which wasn't fair to Afghanistan in the first place. After that, it became really corrupt and governments kept on changing all the time and one wouldn't last for at least 10 years. And then the Taliban came around and controlled almost all of the land by 1996. The Taliban made a ton of strict laws and mistreated women so much it's heartbreaking. And they also allowed terrorists to stay there until the USA invaded in 2001. Ever since then terrorists are still running around out there and innocent people are at high risk for something bad happening to them every day. It is also one of the poorest countries in Asia. I just feel really bad for all of the innocent people there because they don't deserve any of the bad things that are going on over there.

There's nothing that makes Afghanistan a redeeming state. The country has been at war for decades. That any country other than Afghanistan, Somalia or Congo is on the top is unbelievable. - nonofyall

Disgusting, horrible, immoral, paedophiles. I'm sick of 'lack of education' being used as an excuse. I imagine most races wouldn't have to go to school to realize that raping children is immoral, disgusting and pathetic. But, they do it on thursdays, and god forgives them on fridays, therefore it's acceptable.

It's a great country but the Taliban ruined it with the bombs and violence and acid attacks

7IndiaIndia, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Watch out, ladies (local or foreign). India is now the rape capital of the world.

I love India even though it's a messy place. People in India give respect to each other. And it's not about the place it's all about the people. How people give respect and take respect. India is a place where the Hindu gods use to live. Its an awesome place in this world and in the universe!

I am form Afghanistan and I was in India this February first New Delhi to Mumbai then Pune. Mumbai is the worst it is very dirty very stinky everywhere has the smell of urine I guess they all have urinary tract infection.

I voted because they don't think good for their own country but always think and do bad for other countries.

8Syria

You put the US, Italy, and South Korea above Syria. Some people need to stop hating countries because of history when they vote on this list. Syria is in a civil war right now, was tied for the least democratic country in the world, and its citizens are being massacred by their government. If you believe that this sounds better than the US, Italy, or South Korea, you need to read the news and learn what human rights are.

It is crazy. They are in civil war and you put them at 45.

Im Glad not being There
1. Everybody there is fighting with somebody.
2. It ties with DRC as the least developed country on Earth
3. Its too poor
4. Bad government but most people are nice - while the leader is doin nothin, people are starving and fighting

Stop giving aid to Somalia. 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 uncivilized, and divided third world country plagued with poverty, crime, and corruption.

Stop helping the Retarded Somalies, let them screw up their country themselvs and plus they are a lot better at screwing up anything.

Same with all Islamic countries out there!

(I don't WANT TO BE MEAN TO THE MuslimS THAT RESPECT ChristianITY AND HinduISM AND OTHER RELIGIONS THAT ARE NOT PART OF Islam.

10Russia

While Russia might have its beauties, you can't deny that it's one of those countries that caused the most harm to the world. The Russians are still proud of their imperialist past, think their leaders are always right and refer to anyone who doesn't want to be its slave as an "American puppet". The Russians are violent and stupid.

In Russia to live cool, while others say in the media about Russia only bad things that other countries are often promoted Russophobia, in other countries, media for people always lie about the Russia

omg. I just saw a documentary about the environmental issues over there. Bursting of oil pipelines, air pollution and not to mention the areas of radiation. *shudder"

Putin has done some human rights violations... and he has sold weapons to Syria through Finland...

11ZimbabweZimbabwe, officially the Republic of Zimbabwe, is a landlocked sovereign state located in southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers.

1. Zimbawbe is a nice place. Although, with that ruler, I guess it isn't exactly paradise.

2. On this page people are being so racist. I come from Australia and no, they're is no racism on Australia here. Now, I do think Australia is the best country but that is for an obvious reason. I come from there, and everyone has a right to their opinion. But they DON'T have the right to write or speak racist comments. Especially, when you're not even giving us a reason why you're being a racist:

Stupid ascents, stupid places, stupid everything I have a american guy in my class (stupid)

"Americans think they are the best, but they are not.
I hope they will be nuked from North Korea.

Ok I'm fine with the last one but the first 2 ones? Let's start with the first one. Whoever wrote that you are a racist and a beep. Is it the kid's fault he's american. Is they're any problem with it? NO! Stupid accents? 1 ...more

A single US Dollar is worth hundreds of quadrillions of the currency here, Google it if you don't believe me. (Quadrillion comes after Trillion)

I understand Zimbabwe is pretty messed up but every country has it's problem but every foriegn country from the us always hate the us I mean what is wrong with people america is very confused but so is all these countries I reckon we should all just respect each other where on human race but we all hate each other it's just sad

12IsraelIsrael, officially the State of Israel is a country in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea.

Israel is one of the greatest countries. The world is full of antisemites and Israel was created so Jews could finally try to live freely without being killed and persecuted. Israel is the only democratic country in the Middle East where people of all religions and all genders can live freely. In all the other Middle Eastern countries, people are routinely murdered and persecuted if they are not Muslim or if they are women. And yet the world remains ignorant of the reality and truth and the world remains antisemetic and misinformed by the biased racist media who discriminates against Jews and falsely blames Jews. Somehow Palestinians who constantly perform and promote terrorism become in the right because that is what the media tells you. People need to realize that a country like Israel that promotes equal rights for everyone should have our support not all the other Middle Eastern countries or the Palestinians who support terrorism and death to all who are not Muslim. When will the ...more

They went into Palestine and forced the original people there out of there homes completely because of there religion to create there own religious country. Religion has been the largest cause of war ever and this has already caused 2 wars and much terrorism.

Jews can't even marry gentiles. That's a similar thing hitler did. They need to create a Palestinian state And give them technology similar to their's to make up for what happened.

People sometimes need to know that there will always be different religions. - ethanmeinster

Israel exists because only because of the Nazi's! They killed almost the entire Jewish population of Europe! What were the Jews suppose to do? Go back where there was a bunch of haters on them in Germany and the iron curtain of Stalin? Would you like to move back to a country that was then communist? Romania, Poland, Belarus, etc. all came under the control of the communists after WW2. Were the allies suppose to send them there? It was much better to send the to Israel then to stave to death after the holocaust. - jeffy1234

13Poland

I really love Poland, I go there all the time, I speak Polish and I really don't think it should be on a list of 'Worst Countries', however, I noticed that I am treated some what differently compared to all the locals due to the fact that I don't look like a typical Polish person. Not both my parent are Polish which makes me half Polish and half Arab...
This automatically means that I get the whole street staring at me as if I've just jumped from the moon. Thankfully, its not everyone :)

I wouldn't really call it racism, just maybe ignorance about others.
Otherwise, Poland is great!

They don't stare at you because they want to be rude. Not many people from other countries come to Poland, so they are just surprised and curious.

I don't really wanna be Polish now..

I am polish and polish people suck

14FranceFrance, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. ...read more.

I don't know what you are talking about. France is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. - Alpha101

The food is amazing, and even though there is an attitude of being somewhat cool, this country is friendly and welcoming, and deserves to be out of this list.

Also, French people have a sense of fashion. The accent, food and attitude of the people, along with the various monuments to visit are all factors which contribute to the fact that France is great, and is a country one must visit in his lifetime.

Thank you France.

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.

Among the less worth country, France and French are fantastic, should be definitively out of this list.

My mom country Congo it's a very good country but the economy is very poor we are always fighting and then when we fight we played the blame game but it is beautiful country

17SerbiaSerbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

The best country in this part of Europe. But someone put bad words in media about Serbia. If they don't like Serbia and Serbs why they do visit most famous music festivals in Serbia? Most of people missjudged Serbia as a savage people which they aren't.

Very genocidal people and cold hearted. Many innocent people have suffered at the hands of the Serbs, and the worst part of it all is they deny what they've done.

Serbs made the word "balkanisation" mean splitting up into separate states following a violent civil war.

Sad faces, sad cities, arrogant, primitive and bad tempered, poor and mean.

18South KoreaSouth Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Unfortunately, having lived in Korea for the past 8 years and speaking the language well, I can honestly say that Korean men treat their wives very badly (on the whole). Most company men use prostitutes, rarely see their children, and many are not averse to using physical force if they feel their wife deserves it. This is why most Korean women who speak good enough English prefer to have western/foreign boyfriends and husbands. Ironically, Korean men have little power in the day to day running of the household and leave it to their wives to cook/clean the home/pay the bills/look after the children(including their education). Most Korean married couples do not have sexual relationships after the first baby is born - in fact it is common for the child to sleep in the same bed for many years afterward.

Anyway, there are many more things I could comment upon but I don't want to just make a long list of what is negative about Korean men - after all, I'm sure many of the same ...more

This country is evaluated by persons and countries having the common sense as follows,
Always making troubles at any time and anywhere,
Impossible to coexist in the mutual international Community, and
No use for the sustainable harmonization of the global environment.

I don't think there should be any such list as Worst countries. I know every country has its own bad times, but Korea is an exception!

Compared to North Korea, it's like comparing a pug to Adolf Hitler.

20Saudi ArabiaSaudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula.

Genuinely the worst place on Earth that I have ever had the displeasure of living in (for the past year).

To all who talk about women rights, shut up about it, it goes far beyond that. It's a place full of iignorant morons with the worst spirits and screwed mentalities.

It's not religion that makes these morons the way they R. Islam actually teaches that it is your character that counts, and teaches patience, tolerance, cleanliness, and much more good. It is just unfortunate that people judge the religion by these idiots who are so very far from it.

Saudi Arabia isn't following Islam, because if it did, it wouldn't be the filthy place that it is with its people who have possibly the ugliest manners on the planet.

Shame on you, you are a disgrace to Islam and the Arab world.

I lived in this horrible country, nothing to do there, Everything is "Haram"
A lot of Indians and Pakistanis, weather is so hot, streets are very very crowded, specially on Thursday, and those religious people! , it's just horrible country

worst country they think that there country is at utmost in this world
no religion freedom
they are lucky only because of petroleum
but besides this they have nothing, and also after some after 40 years this
resource also get depleted

Saudi Arabia is an absolute CANCER! Why are they so low?
