21 Pyongyang, North Korea

It might sound silly but aliens won't attack us if they see Kim Jong un in charge of this place. They'll just think "if the rest of this planet's like that, then we can't be bothered invading them

Kim Jong-Un's dream, may never become reality - yatharthb

Hey, Watch Out. Pyongyang is developing really fast under Marshal Kim Jong-Un, It certainly can become the capital of Korea after the reunification. - yatharthb

I am Kim Jong Un and I am friend with Osama Bin Laden. Our city, Pyeongyang is much more better than New York, London, Paris, Berlin etc. Also it is the most effective city after Beijing and Shanghai. I will invade the whole world and make my capital in Pyongyang.

Hahaaa! NO.

22 Beijing, China

COOL - PopGeorge1678

23 Olympia, Greece
24 Los Angeles, United States

Not only the greatest city in the U. S but the most diverse city in the world. Without LA there wouldn't be Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Studio City and a lot of headquarters of famous businesses. All the celebrities live in the Bel-Air Estates and LA is just a big cultural city that could be the center of the World.

Really? the most phoney city in the world? Who cares about all the celebreties who live there in their extravaganza houses? Are they gonna start to tell the world how to live ( they do it already now but it would be worse ) our lives?

25 Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul is already called the capital of the world. A city where Europe and Asia meet

Istanbul is the hub of world between east and west

26 Montreal, Canada Montreal, Canada

It's the tourism capital of North America, festival heaven! Great infrastructure, it feels like Los Angeles but improved!

Festivals EVERYWHERE! Montreal would be nice for a world capital honestly!

Yes it sure deserves world capital

27 Dubai, United Arab Emirates Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai is more of a tourist destination than a economic or Cultral capital.and people only see the good side of one considers the human rights problems or the poverty that the workers have to face.and plus.It's BOILING HOT. - 12cc

28 Tehran, Iran

Only in Ayatollah Khomeini's wildest wet dream would that ever happen.

30 Compton, California
31 Ahmedabad, India

One of the fastest developing cities in the world, Mumbai has a rich culture and people of various race, religions, etc congregate here. Once you live in this friendly atmosphere, you will never want to leave it. Given its high GDP growth rate, it will soon emerge as the world leader. Mumbai Meri Jaan!

You should also mention the high poverty rate, the high slum population, unhygienic conditions and the polluted air. - yatharthb
