Most Corrupt Countries In the World
The Top Ten
They execute any person who dislikes our says something rude to the leader of the country (or total dictator of the country) and there are basically no rights. Christianity is basically banned, and worshippers have begun to do it privately. They threaten to nuke other countries, ban Internet, and don't get me started about the propaganda. They make them believe crazy things like " Kim Il-Sung is a the eternal leader of North Korea and is a god" or "Kim Jong-Il controls the weather and created the hamburger". Kim Jong- Un is basically deranged, as he killed his uncle. While millions of people starve all across the country, the government imports Coke. Instead of using their money to feed the starving population, they just increase military strength and just end up in more debt. For example, the government tried to build a building called " the Ryugyong Hotel, a hotel that is over 1,000 feet tall in 1987. They still haven't opened it. This country is crazy and sick. - ethanmeinster
I can't believe that Ameroca was voted more corrupt then North Korea... Yes we have flaws. Many flaws. Yes, we are trillions of dollars in debt, we never solve any problems, and yes, we are mostly fat, uneducated, gun-enthusiasts. But: do we worship our leader as if he was a god? No. Do we believe that we are the center of the universe? No. And most important of all: are we all brainwashed minions of a fat, psychotic warmonger? NO. come on guys. Be real. We (Americans) may be very very flawed, but admit it: We have it so much better then North Korea.
Never enter North Korea...it is literally the highway to hell.
Meanwhile the devil himself lives like a celeb in his home living in luxury while everyone else suffers famine and propaganda everywhere.
They kill anyone who says anything to there dictator Kim Jong Un. You don't get killed for making fun of Barrack Obama people do it all the time. All of North Korea is starving, Kim Jong Un ate all there food. North Korea is the ones who are corrupt. America only gets involved in other countries business because there's stuff that should never ever happen there. Then people who are from other countries trash the USA because of stereotypes and say it's because were greedy. Meanwhile Kim Jong Un is killing people because a paper with his picture on it is being used as wrapping paper. So, tell me who is corrupt now? America number 1 on the best countries to live list and number 1 most corrupt. #Logic
I hate the USA. I hate all the crime they have, all the hatred towards other countries. I hate their ignorance towards other countries and their overall ignorance. They have a terrible Educational system. Too many black problems (serves them right for having enslaved all of those people from Africa). They are the most gun crazed people in the world. They have so much poverty, so many street people, so many gangs. The drug trade depends on Americans usage. They think Canadians still live in igloos. So uneducated) They have the most corrupt medical system in the world. Doctors are in it strictly for the money. They have the most demoralizing food stamp system in the world. When I was a child I thought everyone lived in big homes and had a pool, that is what they wanted everyone outside of USA to believe. Their Government thinks more about pouring money into war than taking care of its own people. They would like to run the whole world. They forget one think... History shows that great ...more
I don't like people saying how Americans are ignorant. I'm American and I don't think Canadiens live in igloos. There is a lot going on in the United States ( and the rest of the world). But people should be grateful, because your life literally depends on where you are born. But it's your opinion, and I won't argue with that. - Pony
These people have no idea what they're talking about. America may have some internal problems, but that's bound for a nation so powerful. Just historically this can be proven (Rome, UK, Mongolia). We also give more than any other country. I hate how people say we are ruining other countries. Those idiots would blow each other up without a moderator. China may be able to solve some math problems, but they can't get it together. And ya, America messed up at times, but they got even better from it. Only a small portion of America wanted slavery, but the south would threaten to leave when told to give up slavery. We are run by the people, not some dictator. These conspiracy losers try to argue with doctored evidence. People disagree with america's rights for abortion or same sex marriage, but if we didn't allow it, I bet that all of you would be complaining that we are so segregated still and the the the. People also take their ideas of American intelligence from unreliable sources. ...more
"We are run by the people, not some dictator." We are now, since Trump is in office. - Metalhead1997
This country takes advantage of other countries, allows unborn babies to be killed, allows people of the same gender to marry, gives rights lie "Freedom of Religion" an restricts Jews, Christians, and Muslims from practicing their beliefs, they have tons of drama if a black person is killed, but if a white person is slaughtered nobody cares, they mourn over Pearl Harbor where 2,000 were killed (I understand this is a sad thing) and when they bomb Hiroshima where 200,000 were killed they do not mourn. In history books they include that Germany was ruled by a dictator who started a mass genocide, but they do not mention that Hitler was Austrian, he wouldn't have been in power if the treaty of Versailles wasn't written by greedy power hogs, and they don't mention that they looted German houses and kicked the rightful owners out when they took over a city. And do NOT get me started on the President. - GeorgBavaria
We have definitely done bad things in the past, but there isn't restriction on freedom of religion at all (at least in Florida). In my personal opinion, allowing same-gender marriage isn't a bad thing, but that is up to personal beliefs. Same thing with abortions, that is controversial and many normal citizens don't know how they feel about it because they aren't being given correct information. political parties are becoming increasingly stupid and biased. Also, the President has made down idiotic decisions, most Americans acknowledge this. - FandomsUnite
I'm British and I don't like this country but come on! This one of the richest countries ever! You have houses, and fresh water, and all the McDonald's, right?
I just voted this to say something. Pakistan may be corrupt, but its not as stupid as people call it. It's a beautiful country, just as good as usa (but maybe not financially. ) its just a myth that everybody is a terrorist there. My neighbors are Pakistani and they are the nicest people ever!
Pakistan isn't such a bad country. But They are a bit corrupt. It's just some people think that people should follow their rules. I'm not Pakistani but I'm Indian and I've met a lot of wonderful people from Pakistan and one is my best friend. In every country they're people who are good and who are bad.
I still love my country no matter what the stupid people say
NO WAY! How can it be under India?!? Don't you know what goes on in here? Men here publicly beat women even in front of police officers and no one says anything to them! There is NO SINGLE LAW TO STOP THIS! AND WHAT LAW HAS CAME OUT IN THIS HELL IS THAT MEN ARE FREE TO BEAT THEIR WIVES! WHAT CAN BE WORSE THAN THIS?!? Ans women are getting all type of tortures either by the law or by the rituals!
Are you sure that the United States (the world's super power with one of the highest standards of living on the planet) is more corrupt than a failed state with a famine? - Votebotingsucks
Somalia was listed as the most corrupt country in the world and has a long history of corruption. The Somalian government is only one year old and is already corrupt. From setting up refugee camps to divert food donations so they could steal them and sell them on the black market. Also the Al Shabaab movement the infamous terrorist sect control most of the nation and finance most of their operations through ransom money it demands as tribute from pirate gangs... oh did I mention they have pirates too. As well Somalia's Transitional National Government led by Sharif Sheikh Ahmed are most competent at stealing foreign aid. Not to mention it is stuck in an ongoing seemingly never ending civil war which began in 1991. Which lead to the overthrowing of the already corrupt Barre government only overthrown because the Somali Armed Forces the military where supplying armed rebel groups with major weapons this then lead to seemingly constant faction fighting between militant groups to become ...more
Somalia for me is probably the most corrupt country in the world, since the government can't fully aid those hungry people that cause them to steal like pirates, They are somehow, the modern-day pirates
For all you Libertarians in the United States, this country is the closest thing to an actual Libertarian government. When you see the anarchy that unfortunately is Somalia, it's the best advertisement against Libertarianism I know of. I'll even agree that Libertarianism sounds great on paper---but the actual practice of it leaves a lot to be desired.
Having the USA as the most corrupt country is a complete joke, anyone that even votes for the USA has no idea whats going on in Africa, and in India, over 30% of India's legislation steal from the country
India is so corrupt. Anyone who voted USA has no idea what they are talking about because the USA is one of the least corrupt governments and has an excellent democratic system that serves the people. I'm Indian, so I can tell you about India. In India, politicians steal money from the people, hide the money, and evade taxes by pretending their income is lower than it is. Also, many politicians will bribe people to win elections, yet don't do anything to fix problems. The government does not serve the people and bribery is common. Right now, India is definitely the most corrupt country in the world. One day however, we will become a country with low corruption. I feel like for the first time, our government is finally doing the right thing and taking steps to make a better country.
USA is corrupt and it has the most crime in all the other countries. - WorldPuncher47592834
This is a country people can be murdered in hundreds by Political powers in an organized fashion for keeping the politicians in power - example - Just Google search Vyapam scandal - in which a person can pay money to become become a doctor, engineer or similar position in one of the Indian States. They have killed about 50 witnesses and middlemen over a course of many years to keep the accused safe
India is so corrupt that even if a terrorist enters the country and gets caught by the cops and if the terrorist gives like 5 rupees to the cop he would be free this is how corrupt India is. India supports the #1 highest murder rate due to politics, and the government
A true story of Russian Corruption:
In Russia, like other places in the world, a Double Yellow Stripe in the middle of the road means 'No Passing'. A Dotted Yellow Stripe means that you can pass. However, sometimes the Russian Police will put up a sign stating 'NO PASSING'. Outside St. Petersburg there was a road that was being built, and the Police told the contractors to paint a dotted yellow stripe down the middle. They complied. After the road was opened, the Russian Police hid a NO PASSING sign behind a bush. The contractor found the sign, and decided to to the Locals a 'favor' by repainting the road with a Double Yellow Stripe. Well, when the Police found out about this, they went out in the middle of the night with Black Spray Paint and made the stripe look dotted. And they didn't stop there. They hired a farmer with a tractor to drive up and down the road, to encourage motorists to try to pass, and when they did, the Police would nab them. They paid the farmer a bottle ...more - Operation_Fortitude
At this point in history the word "Russia" and the word "Democracy" are pretty much antanyms. It is actually really hard to imagine a democratic Russia. It's like trying to imagine a frozen Mexico or a war hungry Switzerland. The Russian people cannot grasp the thought of Democracy after living under tyranny for so many thousands of years. Imagine someone who has lived underground all of their life attempting to comprehend the sun or the sky. Something in Russian culture, ideology, national identity, whatever is just so hostile to the concepts of democracy and liberalism that the two cannot possibly exist together.
Putin isn't exactly helping either. I sware I wouldn't be surprised if that phsyco tried to take over Alaska or something.
The biggest corrupted police ever in Russia
Since Russia runs much of the US corruption, maybe most of it, especially 2016-2020, they should be number one. It's a criminal syndicate.
Its corrupt because usa is giving millions of dollars to its people but they use it for army... While they don't have soldiers!
It's very dangerous this country. Mines are all over the place.
If it has moslems, then corruption follows.. these people can't go by one day without blowing themselves up.
Their motto goes, "Come to Afghanistan. Have a blast, it might be your last"
Afghanistan is going DOWN!
This country isn't really corrupt by itself, isis is what made it bad to live in. - lolingdog9000
No it is not the corrupt country persons who commented that it is corrupt country they are the corrupted one
Its corrupt country
One of the corrupt countries in the world
Why is there even a such racist list like this?
A country full of Embezzlement
Oh god curse them for taking American hostages!
Do u kno de wae
Do u kno de wae
Do u kno de wae
Even though it's very very rich country richer than what you'd thought of it's dictator intentionally made the gov so corrupt & people so poor so powerless he actually get foreigners to fight them killing 400000 of his own people 12 million displaced he's personal wealth estimated 300 billions all of it outside the country he should be ranked number 1 criminal on earth the amount of crimes he commit against his own people is unheard of
Indeed Syria is the most corrupt country reason because of terrorist.
THE PEOPLE THERE ARE STUPID AND CRAZY!
*When Syria isn't even in top ten*
Wake up people
You must be having a laugh if this country isn't on this list. Deserves to be in the top 5. THE FRENCH WON'T LEAVE THEM ALONE. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
They'd execute you if you were gay. I mean, I'm not gay, but that's just... barbaric
What does that has to do with corruption?
Also they don't kill you if you're gay, they kill you if you had gay sex, so if you did that it's your fault they have warned you. - Votebotingsucks
A country that has free healthcare no tax and has a king that has gave women a right to vote strongest economy in Middle East free education you guys come on its not Congo
Should be top10
Just cause you believe strongly in your religion doesn't mean jihad
Dear lovely commentor who posted this friendly statement: "Have you ever seen a Chinese person when questioned about anything, even insignificant non- sense be able to tell the truth. They are lying little picture taking, back stabbing, stealing pricks! "
I'd like to tell you to stop generalizing a whole group of people. Yes, we tell the truth. And yes, unlike you, most of us refrain from making uneducated racist comments that have no truth or background whatsoever. I bet that you'd feel incredibly hurt if someone ruthlessly criticized your country's people. I get that some Chinese and the government are corrupt and rude, but there's no excuse to attack a whole country! Besides, we're only nice to you if you're nice to us.
P.S. Picturing taking... so offensive, huh? -_- It's pretty fun - you should try it some time!
Have you ever seen a Chinese person when questioned about anything, even insignificant non- sense be able to tell the truth. They are lying little picture taking, back stabbing, stealing pricks!
I'm Chinese and I'm not lying little picture taking, back stabbing, stealing pricks. Just stop. - 50
Not corrupt as North Korea and USA. - 50
Communists... I can't... believe america is number 2 when this guy killed innocent children
Oh god, this country should not even be allowed to exist. It is considered by many experts the third worst country to live in on the planet, beat only be North Korea and Somalia. The government is ostensibly democratic, but in truth it is an imperial presidency. The same "president" has been lording over the place since the end of the cold war. 99% of the country is desert. It is landlocked, dirt poor and scorchingly hot. Most people live in tiny huts with no electricity, running water or furniture. Some have dirt floors and nowhere to go the bathroom but a hole in the ground. Criticism of the government is met with unpayable fines and years upon years in jail, if not execution. The internet is censored throughout Turkmenistan and there are only 7 television channels available in the country, all of which are propaganda. Ethnic minorities are persecuted and treated little better than slaves. It is just a horrible place to live, one of the absolute worst countries to be born into. What ...more
Turkmenistan never did anything to anyone, so take this off the list!
Never heard of it so I will vote for it
Turkmenistan's govorment is so evil.
Do you lot even know what you're talking about? Do you know nothing?
In Uganda you have to bride people to do EVERYTHING!
If you want to go to the doctors, you have to bribe the taxi driver (people don't have cars there) or walk for multiple hours. Then you have to bribe the doctors so you don't have to wait in a queue for another few hours, and in the end you end up spending 10x as much as it should spend!
If you lot think Europe/ the west is corrupt, then you know nothing of the workings of this cruel world. - Jwright
Uzbekistan has steel rules! But Human rights are more special in that country! So Uzbekistan is Perfect! Because I have been there for more than hundred times! I Love Uzbekistan!
Uzbekistan is WONDERLAND. This country is not corrupt!
Uzbekistan is peaceful country with no crimes
Uzbekistan has nearly NO crimes!
Undergoing a civil war at the moment, of course they are corrupt. - Triiozz
South Korea is not corrupt. your just made that they copy people
They don't have a corrupt government, there people do not starve and they have really good technology. so don't you Yahoos say something negative because of the what people live
. you need to learn your history.
Us South Korean swear that we have better manners than you people who blame on this country with some stupid reasons.
There are so many racists and lairs.
Education of South Korea is aweful, so people are bad manner.
This country is not corrupted, but it is wicked, they kill a poor little cats and dogs which is the useful animals ever, killing them for a crappy meat, so does a China too, holy crap this is horrid.
I lived in Thailand for two months. This country is extremely corrupt. The Mafia controls everything in some sectors, you can be killed by scammers, and the your own country won't even blink an eye at what these people have done. This country get too much respect. The main thing if any country is a third world country they are very, very, very corrupt to the core. Look at the other S.E.A. countries that are underdeveloped and you will see a common theme. This is not Singapore, Japan, or South Korea...hhhmmm
What? we are not corrupt
Yes, that's true. that Fidel Ramos and Joseph Estrada are former president of the Philippines that stole some money. BUT, it's not true that FERDINAND MARCOS is the same like them. Marcos is very very rich person. He is very intelligent. He decided to give some of his money to the Filipinos to have their own houses, before CORAZON AQUINO came. that's why. AND THAT'S THE TRUTH IN THE PHILIPPINE HISTORY.
I'm not gonna lie, Philippines is corrupt. Yes, it has torn the country into bits however, Duterte is at its best trying to fight it, no country is NOT corrupt. Philippines may not be the best at politics but it's not as bad as other countries. I will never stop loving this country and I know one day it will rise again. Love from England
Philippines is fairly corrupt but that doesn't mean I hate my Country I'm am mixed English and Philippines and I am so proud I am part pinoy
My only country why would they do this it is like living with a stormtropper that commits suicide
Should be higher at the list. Not only the politicians, the common people are always trying to take advantage. Quite hypocrite.
Brazil should be #1. Our politicians don't even care about the country, or about the people. They just want money even if they have to still it from the poorest citizens... Our public education sucks, our infrastructure sucks, the country's economy is falling apart, all because they're stealing from us. So yeah, Brazil should be at least in top 10.
What? Brazil in #18? It should be #1 and far Ps:I'm Brazilian
What it should be on the top ten even though it has a democratic government
Wasn't there an economic crisis there about a year or two ago? - Metalhead1997
Almost every nation in Africa is corrupt, but South Africa is top of the pile. The president steals R206 million for his own security upgrades at his house with his 5 wives...
The only non-corrupt African government is Botswana, which is less corrupt than Italy (and almost as clean as France or Spain) - Harri666
South Africa is probably the richest country in Africa, but, it is terribly corrupt. - Triiozz

Worst country in the world I would rather live in North Korea.
Really? Why don't you live in North Korea then? Have fun with your death sentence you unintelligent creature. Haters like you gotta hate so I don't care.
Why my country is in top ten list! Now the stupid Than Shwe is off from the chair
Death in Haiti is nonstop.
Haiti has lots of killing and hatred towards other countries. [Extremely corrupted! ]
This very country is known for its wide range of corruption, ranging from the govt to its people. It's a whole lot to say about this very country whose immense wealth from mineral resources has being used for exchange of wealth for the so called leaders even for their 20th generation to come, our national cake is being take and kept by one person. Mediocrity rules over meritocracy. Oh! What a pain we live in. We now have a next door neighbor whom we cannot even extend our greetings to talk more of asking him about your missing rat-am talking about boko haram, well, thid is a pinch of what id being heard of in this country
I agree with you. I personally think that it should be in top 5 most corrupt countries
While this place is corrupt, its one of the few african countries that's liveable, a nice place, has good tourism, and has good people
It is true our leaders are corrupt, but Nigeria is a good country with good people

Most closed country, people there don't even know what clash of cland is. - MChkflaguard_Yt
Getting more and more corrupt country. Without joke hungary should be in top 10 !
The current orban government is the most corrupt government ever in Hungary.
Should be in top 15 without joke. Large corruption you can't get things clean in this country. Mafia government rules.
Corruption getting larger in Hungary. This country should have more high ranking.
This country however may have one of the biggest empires. but how about those people slaved and killed during the colonization era. countries stolen by the British. this British country may have a worst history than Mongolia empire. like the native Americans,Asians,native people in New Zealand and Australia who lost their land for bad. even after independence the British did not helped much to help stop wars or conflicts that happed or is happening in India,Palestine Israel. how about helping them. countries that are poor that were British colonies aren't helped by the British. even though why wouldn't UK helped them. It's only their colonies. also how about extinct animals that the british killed to death because of fashion or for land. now those animals may not come back
Britain is one of the most corrupt countries in the world, but the Brits choose to stay blissfully ignorant of it. They couldn't possibly stand to hear anything other than 'our country is perfect'. Just face it! The UK's history may just be the worst out of anybody's. They enslaved and took over countries, absolutely slaughtered people during pointless wars... it's horrible.
We are not the least corrupt but some of these comments are offensive because most Brits(99.9%)of Brits are not ignorant we are a very kind country
English politicians are weak, they let in bad people, but why, what do we have to lose, why should you worry about who you offend
We know all why this country has this sad reputation, the worst it Italy has exported its bad manners to too much other countries.
2nd most corrupted country in Europe just behind Bulgaria (From Transparency International)
Most corrupted in so-called 'Modern Countries'
Italy is the name corrupt
The most corrupt countries since the fifth prime minister too arrogant fool and many scandals involving public money
Clicked into the listing and expected to see Malaysia hitting the top three at least, but heck, 39? This is crazy.
Those who voted on the US, UK, China, South Korea, etc. had no idea how corrupt Malaysia is. Our economy has been plummeting ever since our most beloved PM got his seat, and rest assured that's just the beginning.
Rapidly, the crime rates will increase, poverty will rise and the illegal migrants will rule the country we once called home.
By then, I'd probably have settled down somewhere less corrupted, and the intelligent would have fled. Malaysia would become the second Bangladesh.
Trust me... You do NOT want to take a plane ride to get to or from this country!
Should be in 1st place because of 2.6 billion! Haha
It is crime riddled and dangerous. It also has large amounts of corruption at the smaller little non-influential towns&villages. But the larger main govt is controlled by big bro U.S. OF A. who won't let it get out of hand. They do NOT belong on the list. What I should add is if there a list of most corrupt police departments they will sit on the top of that list
I'm Mexican. I love my country, but I'm sure that the main problem is the corruption. The president is the best example.
Mexico is corrupt compared to Venezuela this should be number 1 on the list.
