Least Funny Countries

No sense for humor, always being serious and doing your work. These are countries with the least funny citizens in the world.

The Top Ten

1 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Germans are deadly serious and don't seem to have any sense of humor. They show no emotions. They do not laugh most of the time, but instead of being funny they're really efficient, the result being the world's 3rd largest economy. But nevertheless I adore Germans. - 19Leviathan14

I'm 25% German And I agree with you! I mean... I do have a sense of humor, really honestly. But I would much rather be serious about things. I guess that's why they didn't play around with that insane German engineering! - Buddha

I agree. They are like that but I still love Germany and Germans more than almost anything. My country, America, comes first of course, but Germany is second. They really are serious. My best friend, Til, is from Germany and is incedibly smart, and cane be extremely funny, but it is just rare. He is always concentrating on his work and what he is doing and never goofing off like my other friends.

I think it has a lot to do with Germans not being very open, especially with other people of other cultures. A typical German will most likely not joke with you unless you've been friends with them for quite some time. They seem to find jokes about stereotypes very funny (but only about other countries! ), and I noticed that many find it funny when someone makes a mistake, fails at something, or hurts themselves. I think they just have a different sense of humor from many other countries. Their television shows and movies are notoriously bland and unfunny as well. When I was living in Germany the only thing watchable on T.V. were the US movies and sitcoms shown on T.V.. I do remember that when the Germans had a few beers, they would finally open up a little and be a little more funny... Maybe the answer is beer...

People in North Korea are only allowed to laugh if Kim Jong-Un makes a joke.

My friend lives in South Korea and he can't even fly near North Korea or they will shoot down the plane.

Same as Iran, with the differnece of North Korea being America's enemy number 1! - 19Leviathan14

Not as serious as the Germans, but still serious, they can only laugh when they drunk Vodka. - 19Leviathan14

Only time Russia can be funny is when they fall part through the power of the people, damn commies...

This Russian girl I sit next to thinks the dumbest jokes are funny. They're awful.

They almost can't be blamed for being so dour. Had a pretty rough history. Are easier to deal with when they are drunk.

5 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

Of course is not true! I'm an Iranian person and you should know that in Iran people always lough just for no reason! And all the people in every hours are outside and having fun and even the coffee shop close at 3:00 am

People really misunderstood this list and think it is "America's N.1 Enemies". - AsianBlood

In Iran people are crazy happy

6 Libya Libya Libya, officially the State of Libya, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Algeria and Tunisia to the west.

Colonel Gaddafi ruled this country, but the lybian people will regain their emotions. - 19Leviathan14

Just wait for Libyans to feel happier

7 Turkey Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, ...read more.

The religious influence makes them really serious and they do not understand jokes when talking about their religion. - 19Leviathan14

I am Turkish, and I can agree with the previous poster. Our excessive binding to our own religion can end up in something extremely horrifying if you also consider our very much strict and poor education system.

Many people over here are also so full of themselves, so worried about 'looking cool' that many of them end up being way too boring and someone that you would not choose to hang our with at all.

8 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle east) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic The capital city is Riyadh.

No crime in Saudi Arabia Justice for everyone

The same as Turkey and Pakistan with the difference of Saudi-Arabia being more open to the world. - 19Leviathan14

Now a days the country change in many different fields the country now in westernized process, many things was unnormal became normal.

may god bless Saudi Arabia and the countries.

9 United States United States The 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 from the ...read more.

I'm not saying that they are serious, but most people got a really bad sense of humour.

They lack the wit and subtlety that British and Australian humour encompasses. Most of their talk shows seem scripted unlike the Graham Norton Show.

I agree because most of American people just think about their job and always try to save it and don't pay attention to another things like their families or travel most. Also they have to pay attention to their job because in America you should work and have job to save your house and your family.
Don't you think?

George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Dave Chapelle, Louis CK, Chris Rock, Robin Williams, etc. all were American...head your head in shame to whoever voted this - AnimeSportsFan619

12 Venezuela Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

Hugo Chavez has vanished the smiles out of it's people by threatening the USA with an attack. - 19Leviathan14

People are really funny, it's just with all the bad things going on back there they just can't be happy during bad times

As a Venezuelan guy I must say Venezuelan humor is maybe one of the worsts sense of humor in Latin America, people here really don't know how to make a joke, besides is very often that people makes jokes with you when you don't know that person enough to make joke with you, and I find that arrogant.

13 India India India, 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.

Haha no, I don't know about the WHOLE COUNTRY but in my area, people are hilarious! I seriously can't stop laughing when I talk to anybody, and they too laugh a lot!


Why is India even on the list? People are HILARIOUS there.

17 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Egyptian people embrace jokes and funny attitude. They make funny statements and jokes in most conversations. I think laughing and high sense of humor should be important and present in every country because it affects the society and the mental state of people in general, steering towards more positive and cheerful atmosphere/attitude.

People are really really funny! They are always kidding and their jokes are very funny.

They are the most hilarious people people might think that they are not funny and just stupid but believe it or not studies say they the Egyptians are one of the smartest race on earth

Its rarely to see an Egyptian without a smile on his face. They like to laugh a lot.

Canada is home to "just for laughs", A.K. A, the funniest place on earth, so there is really no reason for Canada to be on this list.
