Top Ten Most Arrogant Countries

The Top Ten

1 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.

Americans don't know anything about any other countries, and think they're the best, which they're not. - TomoK12

We may not be the best but we do know a damn lot more about other countries than your country does

America is hands down the most arrogant country in the world. Most Americans are arrogant for no damn TRUE reason too. America isn't the best, freest, most prosperous, nicest, most educated, or anything. Give me a break. - Otaku2012

It just obvious. Listen to their nation anthem and how much they rave on about there pathetic country with an obsession for unnecessary amounts of firearms to make up for their weakness. They are practically China's bitch, with 16 trillion dollars of debt, and STILL think they're number 1! GET A REALITY CHECK!

I agree that Americans are pretty arrogant, but not everyone. I believe that our education system is to blame for it because we never have to learn where other countries are located on a map. We also spend way too much time in school learning about American History and the American government over and over again. Believe me, it' gets really boring really fast. The thing is though, we sort of do have the right to be arrogant. We may be trillions of dollars in debt, but that is only because we use our money aiding other countries and funding well known organizations like the world food bank and the United Nations. We also hold a lot of power and influence around the world because of our money. We may be in debt, but if you look at how much money the U.S. actually makes every year, it's a lot more than almost any other country. And the whole thing about our national Anthem, we don't rave about our country with an obsession for unnecessary amounts of firearms either. (even though there ...more

2 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.

Violent people when they get drunk always look for trouble and most womens in India which is belong to the high class society are so very arrogant, felt too smart and demanding they felt that they are most beautiful and richest people living on this earth. But sorry for those Indians but your not! Sorry for those Indians belong in low class society...

India should be number one. I've traveled the world and met many different nationalities but I think Indians are the most arrogant. The irony is that unlike many countries on this list (that have at least managed to achieve in something) Indians really have no reason to be arrogant. They claim they are the most egalitarian people yet their society is deeply divided by caste, religion and wealth. The rich and industrious do nothing to help improve the living standards of the majority of Indians in the long run. Most emigrate at the first chance they get.They claim their civilization is the best and try to take credit for other people's achievements by claiming ancient Indians had already invented it. They accuse Hollywood of ripping of Bollywood when it's actually the other way round. any of them are very racist to non-Indians and even dark skinned Indians. I have often heard the analogy that "god undercooked Europeans, burnt Africans but Indians were cooked just right". They ...more

If I have to choose, it would have to be India because Indians are always so pushy, naggy and just annoying, Indians always shove you out of the way when they see something or want to get past, and most of them have no manners

3 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

As Italian I travelled and worked in other countries in Europe and I can guarantee that I've never seen such as an ignorant, cocky, racist, close-minded country in the world. First of all I won't generalise here, but the vast majority of Italians are racist against EACH OTHER, yes you heard well. They exclude you from their circle if you don't wear branded clothes or you're not cool as they think they're. Completely disorganised and unprofessional at the workplace, besides they don't know what respect is. They love using sarcasm to mock others and they result to be in my opinion one if not the most arrogant country in the world. Finally the girls, the most haughty and full of themselves in the world. You can probably wait to see the end of the Israel-Palestinian war than get laid an Italian girl. The food isn't so bad, the quality of raw materials makes Italian food great. Art and nature are astonishing but really bad-managed. A beautiful country with the wrong people living in it.

So arrogant country where live so arrogant people.

If you want to be stolen and not by foreign immigrants, but by local Italians, go there.

They drive like crazy, they never say hello, the cities are old and dirty, It smells sewers everywhere. Impossible to find a restaurant which is not Italian.

Hotels are really low quality and extremely expensive.

Be careful with policemen, they do not like foreigners, they arrest you and make mess.

Nobody in this country speaks something else than Italian.

It's a very old and boring country.

And for the beaches they are all private or full of rubbishes.

And for visiting only ruins, when it's possible to visit because of continuous strikes.

Escape to Switzerland, Austria or France, it's close and really more funny.

Why Brazil and Argentina are the most arrogant countries of South America? Because they have huge Italian population!

Happy Columbus Day everyone! Wait, why do we even celebrate this guy? He was a murderer, raped my ancestors and not only that, but America was discovered by Leaf Erikson for Christs sake! Today is indigenous Peoples Day! Yep, the ONLY Christopher we acknowledge is Wallace. From CC: I'm celebrated for being evil to Native-Americans and discovering their land that was discovered by a Viking ages before me.

Chinese people are so arrogant and they will argue with you without even know what they are arguing about. Also, I have a school who keeps telling Chinese owns the world like what.. I remember last time I was talking woth my Chinese friends and one Chinese kid bumped my shoulder two times and have a look the looks like he's gonna eat me and he keeps pushing me and I asked him what is his problem and he keeps shouting "Why?! " at me like what dude you pushed me and ask me what my problem is and in the end of our argument he shut his mouth and couldn't accept his mistake

They worship MONEY, MONEY AND MONEY only! China MAINLAND PEOPLE are arrogant! They don't care about other nationalities. they will trick, fool, and take advantage of anybody just to get what they want... no wonder they are not liked by most countries... They will only change attitude if they migrate to other countries.

Only cares about money and is insecure that they do not have socially desirable aesthetics. Very racist and not welcoming to outsiders. Think that you don't have to do your own hard work, as long as you can cheat and exploit others. They are the capital of smart people who also cheat. Living in a large population does it to them, but they don't even try to be the "bigger person."

They built a lot of high-rise buildings in the city, looks great and very rich, but, in fact, many of them are not sold to the so-called ghost town(no body live in). why they build these buildings? it is the government in order to allow the country's GDP been always rising, so loan much money to the businessman for build these house.

Russia should be number 1. Russians are by far the most arrogant, ignorant, rude, and just flat out the most annoying. I know for a fact that if some Russian sees this, they will think I'm American. And I'm not you idiots. I'm British. According to Russians, Russia is the only good country in the world. The world revolves around Russia. Russians are super nice. None of that is true. They all also seem to think all people that are not from Russia are American. You ignorant pricks. I hate Russia and everyone else should too. They already do. Screw Russia.

All Russians I have known have been arrogant. Perhaps nice but they sure walk with a stick up their ass and nose held high. They think Russia is perfect and no one else can win.

Rude, imperialist, racist, xenophobic...

I like Russia.

6 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.

To be honest I really think it's too obvious to explain why. It surprised me when I realised how much the well-organised European and German propaganda had affected German public opinion, even though it is common knowledge that living in the developed world in 21st century you can literally NEVER trust the media propaganda and always trying to use your common sense and your conscience in order to form an opinion about anything you don't already know. Of course this is a fact that concerns every single country, but Germany now has the upper hand, the greatest responsibility and the necessary luxury to help Europe move forward, not keep on going backwards. As a foreigner and a tourist in Germany I find no excuse for racism (even though usually Germans take away your right to point it out because they can). Having said that I have to admit that in such a cruel environment, those Germans who do not only refuse to be easily manipulated and close-minded but also try to help Europe's ...more

In reply to the guy who said, "Honestly, I can understand why Germans would be arrogant." You are either German (again proving your arrogance), or you are nothing short of an ignorant sucker. But I'm sure it's the first one. Lol get off the internet, will you?

Honestly, I can understand why Germans would be arrogant. Planly, Germans are nothing short of BADASS! In everything. Soccer, Physics, Literature, War, Cars, industry and much more. And that is not to mention that about 57% of white people in the USA are of German descent and the USA is badass too.

Germans are the most arrogant people in the world! They think they follow the rules but many times they just act like fools or like robots. If you walk into the store through the exit gate they are ready to make big mess if you don't get back and get inside through the right door. Most of them don't want to speak any other language but german despite the fact they know english but they will not help you for anything if you don't know german. MOST COMMON PHRASES: DEUTSCHLAND IN DEUTSCH! They hate you if you don't speak their language and most of them are full 100% racist but they hide for themselves because of their past! They think they are the best because they have big industry but the industry doesn't make the people and there are many other nation which are the same good or better in industry as USA,France,UK,Sweden,Norway,Japan,China,South Korea.
THEY ALSO DESTROYING EUROPE WITH THEIR REFUGEES!

7 Poland Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north .

Polish believe everything in Poland is the best on the planet.

Wouldn't you want a bit of pride if you get invaded every 2 years?

Pooland arrogant?

Okay, just to clarify some things : I'm,not polish, I was born in Belgium but live here for like four years already and I have to say that Polish people are in fact one of the greatest people I know, always humble and eager to help
You can always count on them when you need any kind of help, they will never excuse it
And believe me, you won't never find as hospitable nation as Poland
So, just don't believe in everything u read, because like 90% of opinions bout Poland on the Internet are mean and easily not true

America comes in close second to North Korea, in my opinion. North Korean people are actually starving and in poverty, but the government keeps saying "we're the best country in the world, and everyone else is stupid, so let's make nukes". They take such pride in something that is nothing to be proud of.

They are so stupid they went back after the world cup and said to there president that they had won the world cup what a pile of rubbish... Please view my lists funniest football players names and best psy songs and best football boots and please vote for adidas not them stupid nike folk - rhino10

Government no care about people. government so arrogant people are starving right under their noses and they do nothing about it,. then again they seem to get pleasure out of torturing people for their own benefit

9 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

Brazilians of German, portuguese, Italian or polish descent are extremely rude and annoying with foreigners. I met some European Brazilian girls from the upper class in trip to Disney, they always find a way to say her country is better and your country is trash. They say extremely rude things like Americans are fat, American middle class is dumb, Mexicans are not beautiful, Europeans are smelly dirty, Europeans smoke a lot, they don't like to smoke and other bad stereotypes... Some girls of Brazil will say you are ugly, one of my friends was called not beautiful by a cute blonde Brazilian girl in the party. Even in a nice trip, they are always saying how the place is not good and how they wanna go back to Brazil. White Brazilians seems to don't like Latin Americans, Anglo Saxon Americans and they don't like Europeans too, most because they feel isolated and forgotten by their ancient European home countries, most Italy, Portugal and Germany. Preppie Brazilian girls were always ...more

European people from Brazil are arrogant with everybody, they think they are above every latin america and sometimes they are arrogant with Europeans from Europe too. I don't support them. Probably, Argentina is the only country they respect in the world, maybe because both are the most arrogant South Americans.

These guys are so annoying. They feel that they are in higher ranking then everyone else. - uklin

Not only are Brazilians arrogant but they're very ignorant. Who cares if you come from Brazil? Brazil have many slums, many undeveloped areas with tribes and a football team that lost 7-1 to Germany!

10 Israel Israel Israel, 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.

They are not anymore god's chosen race, they kill children and innocent people, and their place would be definitely the HELL!

You forgot to mention that they are God's chosen race.
It baffles and saddens me, to read how terribly Jews have had it for centuries just to see them build the most racist and bellicose country in the world.

Israel is arrogant for no reason. All they do is swallow up European and American government money, and spend the money to slaughter innocent people (mainly children). They can't do anything themselves, always relying on America to do unnesccerasy dirty work. IsraHELL should be #1 on most arrogant and actually, disgusting and pathetic.

The kikes think they control the world. But they ain't controlling sheeiiit.
And the turd-fugees that entered Europe. Yep they are getting shipped back home. Their new home is : Israel! Yes! The rapefugees will live in Israel!

11 Argentina Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

Argentina feel they are more European than Europe, they don't like people from Mexico or Colombia. In fact they just respect 5 countries Brazil, Uruguay, Spain, Italy and France because they feel close to those countries, like brothers.

This country is made up of the poor peasants of Europe and ex-Nazi fugitives and for some odd reason they believe that they are, not only better than Europe, the best of the Latin American countries. Their only export to the world is soccer and the word "Che! " I have yet to meet a humble Argentinian. Mexico is an industrial powerhouse as is Brazil and Colombia and Argentinians have the audacity to belittle them. Soccer is not everything in life.

They think they are better than Europeans because of stupid reasons. Some even think they are the best Latin American country, but what do they have against countries like Mexico, for example? I don't really see what they are so proud of, besides the reasons above. This stereotype dominates Latin America, but I believe they should have something better to worry about. I'm only reciting what a Latin American may say.

Argentinians are cool, they are just like Brazilians, but a bit more cultivated and hot blooded.

12 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands . Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry .

I live in Australia so can speak first hand. Australians are without doubt the most arrogant people in the world hands down. They are self obsessed, think the world revolves around them, they think the world actually cares about what Australia thinks and they think they are right about everything and everybody else is too stupid, backward, uncivilised and stupid to know anything. They are disgustingly racist and think the world comprises of England, Australia, USA, Canada New Zealand and the barbarian lands beyond the borders of the above mentioned countries. They are generally ignorant, ave very very poor persona hygiene, dress like slobs and are completely upside down - women act like men, men act like women. Disgusting.

I'm American and live in Australia. I think Americans are pretty self-Rightous arrogant people but they can't hold a candle to Australia in this department. I really shouldn't complain as there is much more opportunity here in many areas vs the USA. But every day for me is a pride swallowing siege watching them imitate American culture in practically every way but without understanding what they are imitating it's just bizarre

Ok... first of all, Australia is not 'very dry.' That is only for some Areas. Places such as QLD (Queensland) and NSW (New South Wales) are in fact, yes, hot, but often it becomes very cold. No, here its not desert, its lovely green trees around every corner! It rains quite a lot. Second of all, I do believe the people that have contributed to comment on the so called "arrogance of Australia" probably only have their opinions, because they are from another country, of which is just different to Australia, or maybe they just prefer where they come from. Third of all, not all Australians are "self obsessed." Come on, there is that annoying girl in every year level, but lets be real. Hardly any of the people I know have a stuck up personality. I don't believe that I possess that trait either. What the heck are you guys talking about? "The girls act like boys and the boys act like girls." Well sorry that everything isn't gender neutralized here, preventing ...more

Easily the most arrogant people on the planet. Talk themselves up all the time. Then when they fall short they find another way to explain how they still won haha.

Yes this is correct, you can't be arrogant without some reason, GB had the largest empire in the world (Land mass). It mechanised the world in the Industrial revolution. It had the most powerful navy in the world for a century. It's list of achievements, inventions and military successes would fill a library. For the size of the Country it is (or should I say was) without equal. If you put any race on earth in America they could not fail to become powerful with all the resources that they have available. They do however have a core of clever resourceful people, many are probably from European extraction, who have made the best of what they have. That cannot be said of many countries in the world that have fantastic resources but have chosen to squander it. So I am afraid this list is basically a list of the countries that other people are most jealous of or like to hate because they feel inferior.

Nation that has always been stealing ideas and resources from elsewhere (ex the colonies, the Falklands) and claiming as their own, masters in the art of spin and falsehood the British are true manipulators who like to present themselves as polite, tolerant and reserved - you never know where you stand with them in personal and professional relationships as they communicate in a vague disingenuous manner always leaving themselves room to manoeuvre out of any commitments. Extremely lazy and ungrateful, with delusion of grandeur British are only good at self-promotion. I mean what other nation has ever called their land "Great..." anything especially considering their actual size. The clue to the mentality in the very name.

The nation is not called Great Britain that is the landmass the nation's name is the United Kingdom - Munifex

Why should Brits be arrogant if their largest empire fell down to the ground? We are mainly talking about some small countries. The Brits also are seen as tyrants during their reign of terror. They should have never colonized us Indians. To all Brits who say that have a reason to be arrogant, listen up. Your empire is gone and is a piece of history. That's the past guys so, the sun does set on the British empire/nation right now. Funny, this is the place to send insults.

In History lessons in secondary school in the UK we were taught about the British Empire. People may think that we are taught that the British empire was brilliant and amazing because we are so arrogant but actually it's the opposite, if we are so arrogant as a country and a nation then why are we taught about the horrible actions of the British Empire and not the brilliant ones. Even though the British Empire did some terrible things we provided a stable government for example places like Australia have a stable economy and things like that whereas places in the Spanish Empire like Mexico who are in poverty. Even though the British
Empire did some horrible things in a way we did kind of save other countries maybe that's something to be arrogant about.

What, are you kidding me? The Japanese are some of the most modest people that I have known. They never talk too big about themselves, unlike Mainland Chinese and Filipinos.

Why the fudge is Japan here. This is probably not even an arrogant country cause to me, majority of them are AWESOME. Japan is by far the funniest countries too because of their T.V. shows. It's just hilarious and they are also very creative.

I LOVE LOVE love Japan but I guess they can be a little arrogant but I mean who isn't everyone is a little arrogant because lets face it we aren't all perfect am I right or am I right. :3

The japanese are one of the most educated nation in the world (in % of population). They have many reasons to be arrogant but their attitude is not to be arrogant! If I have to choose where to be born in Japan or Germany or UK, India, China or USA I would chose Japan!

17 Netherlands Netherlands

The Dutch are too vain, they think they're the best at everything but the opposite is true! They think they are the richest in Europe, yeah they might earn a little more than the rest of Europe, but if you look at the prices of real estate and the rest of the products in shops, you can see that everything is overpriced and that they can't do very much with their money. For example, real estate is so much more expensive than in neighbouring countries, for the price of a terraced house in The Netherlands you can buy a big detached house with a large garden in France or Germany.

I'm Dutch and I just know the Dutch are the most arrogant of all. The Dutch swear too much and they think they can do and say everything they want, so they insult other people constantly. I have also visited other countries in Europe, like Belgium, France, Germany, England and the people are so much kinder, open-hearted and in those countries people have respect for one another! The Dutch are definitely the worst!

The Netherlands is a pretty great country, as usually people get annoyed when the dutch even show that they are aware of it a little.

It depends. Some are really, really arrogant but some are actually anything but arrogant...

France is one of the best country in the world and French people are so kind.

Elegant people, clean streets, good shopping, powerful army, good economy, great language spoken in 57 countries.

117 different nationalities are represented which make France the most diversified country in Europe and one of the first in the world.

In every country you will find arrogant people, but French are not but they are shy and for that look maybe not kind, but is just a kind of protection. But they are always there to help you and to welcome you.

I had bad experiences in Europe, but never in France.

I remember, back when I was at middle school, there was this snobby French kid in my class. God, did I hate him. Every introduction, he'd say, "I excel," stressing the latter word, "in herpetology." I wouldn't be surprised if I heard another French kid say a thing like that. Everyday, he kept boasting about his "intellectual" capabilities. He acted all chic with his French language and even had that annoying vain voice. He was tall and had straight, blonde hair. I was short, so he always looked down on me. He was adored by teachers, but cursed by students. At least students like me. I always had a grin when he was corrected. I hated when he waved to students after winning some award. He was accepted to this prestigious private school. Guess what? He says, "it's not good enough for me." He made my middle school year like hell. I'm glad he went back to France. Now honestly, the French aren't necessarily all arrogant and haughty. It's just they ...more

Amazing country, simply beautiful, very open minded. Don't listen to the stereotypes, all my encounters with French people were always really pleasant, I mean you'll have rednecks everywhere, France too, but I've never met any.

France does not deserve to be in that list.
