The Top Ten

North Korea
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.
The country is has one of the most oppressive governments in the entire nation and previously one of the cruelest dictators. The government has committed thousands of crimes (including murder). They also refuse to have relations with any other nations. Their country is armed with nuclear weapons and the threat of them using them is very real.
North Korea is the country of the Freedom! You are free to chose:
To live and praise the oppression of a dirty warmonger communist government.
To leave the country, DEAD, so much win right?
Then, eventually, history books will say: "Oh, they misrepresented Marx! "

2United States
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.
I'm from the usa myself but there are messed up people there
how the heck is india higher than china? china should be number 1 on this list! all those who voted for india are bloody racists! largest democracy! freedom of speech thought and everything! united states police are too strict! african countries civil war... pakistan terrorism... afghanistan almost anarchy... china government controls literally evrything and internet and information is tabood... north korea too... iraq iran total confusion! but whats 1 negative about india? and where is australia? >:/
This is a first world country and anyone who's commented has a computer (or goes to the library), so they're most likely well off.

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?
Worst worst worst
It should be awarded first prize in this list... How can anyone like Pakistan? Impossible liking it
HA! I'm so rapt that this country is on third place but I really feel sorry that they are not on the first place.. Don't worry people, Pakistan would be on top within a few years.. I'm from Bangladesh, and honestly I hate Pakistan badly for what they did to us back in 1952 & 1971.. What a SHAMELESS NATION! And I'm feeling so damn happy that Bangladesh is out of this list..

Bad people ans bad smell
More comments about India

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.


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.

You'd get slapped, bro.

7South Korea
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.
The people have a low level of culture.
That's all!
As the same as north korea.
Both countries are the identical stocks.

8United Kingdom
I'm from the uk myself, and we've had a pretty messed up past.
The country which destroyed the whole culture of India... Stole all concepts of science.. I must tell you that gravitation was first done by Bhaskaracharya not Newton... This is the country which destroyed the whole country.
This country is a real cancer to the whole world, they enslaved the Native people in their former colonies.

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.

"Hurricanes, Tornadoes and terrible crimes

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 I love they're accents and 2 let's here YOUR ACCENT HUH? I bet you sound like a freak of nature and I really hope so.

It's obvious why people are starting to say stupid places, accents and stupid everything. The second comment's writer is an idiot. They obviously don't know that Americans are proud and are very patriotic. USA is a paradise and just because people living in disadvantaged countries they're starting to take out America. By the way do YOU HAVE NYC SAN FRAN LA MIAMI YOSEMITE YELLOWSTONE CALIFORNIA FLORIDA OR INCREDIBLY CHEAP BREAKFAST? (I got four pancakes with ice cream at someplace for 50c. It's easy living and it's paradise.
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

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.
stole the land, bulldozing the natives houses, killing children, builds "Jewish only" settlement on the land of the native people, killing dozens of peace activist, etc. etc.
Most dangerous country with nukes. They try to create chaos

1. Everybody there is fighting with somebody.
2. It ties with DRC as the least developed country on Earth

2. Somalia has Somali Pirates
3. Somalia has Somali Civil War
4. Somalia is dangerous to go

There is an Albanian town in Greece, and the Albanians there are treated with little to no respect, and have no civil rights just because they are Albanian.
Greeks are one of the most racist at country.
There police do not hunt criminals, but every morning Arrest ImmigrantS who are looking for jobs. there racism is behind logic
They arrest imigrants because they are illegal or they do illegal jobs. We have hundreds of thousands illegal imigrants or even 1m+ in a coutry of 10 million people with economical crisis and they are ruining my country even further. If you want to be imigrant you are most welcome if you do it with the legal way.

People just like 2 fight
They have bombs and nuclear weapons, they should be no. 1!


Bunch of cowards that ran away or hid when the fighting started, to other countries, but pretend to be tough hard people, in reality are backwards losers

14Sri Lanka
The WORST country of All-time!


The bad conditions of poor parts of India but with genocide
How come India is ahead of Sri Lanka!
Mahatma Gandhi is a Billion times better than Sarath Ponseka and Jawaharlal Nehru is a Million times better than Ranasinghe Premadasa!

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

A country of filthy lying thieves, that take over other countries through mass immigration
It's not depressing, they just have a communist government and are seriously over-populated.


Truly needs a revolution to bring rights to the country

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!

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.
Serbs made the word "balkanisation" mean splitting up into separate states following a violent civil war.
Sad faces, sad cities, arrogants, primitive and bad tempered, poor and mean.

There is a civil war that is starving and killing everyone there

Iran is actually not a bad country, their past hasn't been good, that's it.

22Saudi Arabia
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

Canada isn't a bad country, it just doesn't have the best military. I don't mean to be mean or anything, in fact, I like Canada and kinda want to stay there for a little bit. It seems nice and pretty peaceful. A good place to get in touch with nature.


Why would you post Canada on there, Canada is Best!
