Most Dangerous Countries In the World

The Top Ten

1 Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. ...read more.

It is so dangerous because people living there risk their lives and their average life spam is about 30-40 and they lack access to clean water food and other kinds of materials to survive. They also get killed in different kind of reasons that don't actually have to be killed

First Iraq was safe and calm but when america army attack it, Iraq became unsecure and terrible, I think sources of all insecurity in the world are america and Israel.

Please think about this issue very carefully that, in each country there is insecurity and war america paricipate it.

This country is quite dangerous I heard of people getting killed here when visiting iraq, I would never go on vacation here - trains45

The British invaded India. The USA invaded Iraq. Make up your mind.

2 Somalia

Somalia has no government. Plus there is a lot of terrorism. There's a civil war going on warlords, pirates, famine, and drought. Somalia is hell on Earth.

No government and full anarchy, terrorism is extremely abundant in this vulnerable country and poverty is extremely high. Somalia is the North Korea of Africa, except the only thing that makes Somalia more dangerous is that North Korea has a government.

I'm scared to go there but its started to rebuild

A few months ago was listening on the radio to a BBC foreign correspondent who was reporting on his recent visit to Somalia. Surprisingly he found much of the country was apparently quite orderly, and he remarked that he had been to other places in his career which he found much less safe and much more dangerous, such as parts of Nigeria and parts of Mexico.

3 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

The regime is shelling cities using mortars, bombs, tanks, helicopters and jet fighters! Scud missiles are used too to hit civilians, needless to remind you of the chemical weapons which have been used too! The regime is fighting rebels inside and outside cities.. No where to run! Now what do you think? What country is the most dangerous in the world?

The Syrian civil war basically DECIMATED the country. It was a beautiful and stable country before the aforementioned war. It is currently extremely unstable with very poor living conditions. Sadly, the war won't end any time soon. - PhoenixAura81

Syria is a dangerous place. Isis is there. Isis is a large group of terrible people. They brainwash children so that they can join Isis. This group holds innocent people hostage. Sometimes they kill those people! So I would like to say that Syria is very dangerous.

According to Global Peace Index, Syria is the most violent country in the world.

4 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

This quite dangerous country I have heard of some bad stuff happening here - trains45

my one friend who used to live there said half her school got blown up - cowstar

For my opinion Afghanistan is most most dangerous country in the world, United States of america is no way near as dangerous as Afghanistan, but some places in the United States are dangerous like the bronx or detroit but any where in Afghanistan is more dangerous than anywhere in United States of america

Land mines, malaria, lack of government, lack of resources, extreme poverty, famished, malnutrition, illnesses, drugs and religous radicals known as the Taliban make this country by far the worst place on Earth to live. Don't underestimate any of those I've listed, research will show you each one is the worst in it's class. Afghanistan leads the world in malaria cases, active land mines, and poverty. Their number one crop is opium! Americans will pay out a federal salary to local nationals to earn hard cheddar by performing hard labor, digging ditches in 120+summers all day should be worth more than a handsome $7! That's right, apparently making 7 US dollars is well worth a hard days sun!

5 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

It's dangerous because the dictatorship is SO MUCH... like there's no freedom of speech and internet is forbidden. Only the high rank officials can use internet to cover them up. THEY ARE FULL OF LIES! No North Korean people have access to the Internet because the government is concerned that people would see things that would make them feel unfairly critical toward the West, and the government would like to protect the West's reputation by preventing the people from going on the Internet. LIKE! And there are lots and lots and lots and lots of propaganda. They are war freaks in short.

I was actually surprised at how easy it is to escape North Korea, it's as simple as boarding a flight to Beijing, a non hostile relationship with a communist country, and from there going to another place. The problem is that the people are so brainwashed that they wouldn't know to do that, or that they're living deplorably. The country shouldn't even be called North Korea. South Korea shouldn't be called that either, the south is the only REAL Korea. The North shouldn't even be recognized as a country, it's a giant prison. And Shorty needs a bullet through his forehead. Can you get on that, Rodman? Make yourself useful for a change. -

North Korea is way too corrupted. North Koreans are brainwashed, being told that their "eternal leader" is a god, and that Kim Jong Un controls the weather. People are starving, with some regions turning to cannibalism, and millions dying in a 1994-1998 famine. There's no freedom at all, and saying a bad word about the leader would get you killed. They threaten the US and South Korea, and have nuclear bombs. The Internet is completely banned. Law-breakers, including Internet users, Christians, people trying to escape, and rebels are put into prison camps which has conditions that you can compare to a Nazi concentration camp. Children and infants are killed, prisoners are brutally beat up, and people eating snakes to survive. Some even say that biological weapons are tested on them. There needs to be some changes. - ethanmeinster

Did you know North Korea legalised meth.
Middle Class think it's a medicine for their common cold or back pain.
The poor think it's to ease their empty stomach.

6 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are ...read more.

Pakistan is extremely beautiful place, especially northern areas are just like Switzerland. Pakistan is very famous for Basmati Rice, Mangoes, Cotton, Sugar and other minerals.

Food and Clothing is so famous around the world that you cannot imagine. Housing and life style is great no comparison.

Yeah, you are right. It has each and everything present in this world (can be every type of food, material, metals, gas, petrol, water, river, deserts, valleys and much more) but the corruption, fighting, less interest in education, dirt everywhere, no cleanness, no helping, competition and dying for money are the reasons which destroys Pakistan.

Pakistan is not dangerous, Actually dangerous is America who always want to broke Pakistan styles and Pakistani culture... otherwise Pakistan is not bad... the bad some peoples here who are not Pakistani but they come to Pakistan from another countries like Afghanistan, India, Bangladesh, etc

Pakistan itself has danger from the neighbouring countries like india and iran who has much better military forces than Pakistan. Pakistan should improve relation with these countries to build their country prosperous.

7 South Sudan South Sudan, officially the Republic of South Sudan, is a landlocked country in northeastern Africa that gained its independence from Sudan in 2011. Its current capital is Juba, which is also its largest city.

The newest country in the world is very dangerous and one of the least developed countries in the world. Widespread poverty too. - PhoenixAura81

South sudan? Below south Africa? ARE YOU JOKING? - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

South Sudan is becoming so relentless on civilians, it's on its way to becoming Somalia part 2 - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

South Sudan is the newest country and the poorest country which makes It dangerous

8 Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. ...read more.

As an Israeli, I had to say something:
I DON'T want to kill innocent people, most of us just want peace.
Of course there are some racist groups, but besides that, we are not an evil racist country who just wanna bomb all our neighbors, we want peace too, but so far, nothing has gotten better. I really wish for peace

I have a friend who lives in Israel and he has to live in fear of bombs and rockets coming near by. I feel so sorry for him. He literally had to go off a call because they were near by. I am grateful that I live in England, because there's some that are no where near as fortunate - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Israel is most dangerous country in the world

No, PALESTINE is the dangerous country to be in. Israel are just attacking the Palestinians daily.

9 Yemen Yemen, officially known as the Republic of Yemen, is an Arab country in Western Asia, occupying the southwestern to the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula.

The country is more dangerous than Brazil, Mexico and Honduras - splatter22

It has loads of wars each year I think sorry if I'm wrong I pretty much only study ice age

In some websites this country reveals as the number 1 most dangerous.

Too much people are starving over there. It's heartbreaking.

10 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.

The Usa is getting more dangerous, and all the people who are saying that USA is not dangerous is because they live in USA and don't want to admit that it is one of the most dangerous country in the world, I mean world wide, you see american news all the time that are about murders or robberies or prison breaks, and I live in the UK. Its not that the people are crazy its just over populated like brazil and china, and Iraq is dangerous because of there history with bad presidents like salaam which made them violent. That's all I have to say.

There are many controversies surrounding the US (my home country), but compared to the rest of the world, it is pretty safe for the most part. It isn't in constant war and poverty like in other countries (*cough* Syria *cough* cough* Somalia). It has the largest economy in the world. There is good education (though it doesn't compare to the likes of Finland). It is very diverse. America is a pretty good place to live. I am pretty proud to be from here (though I can't be proud of its controversies and the new mainstream music these days). - PhoenixAura81

Why the hell is this higher than Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia and North Korea? - ElSherlock

The US is no more dangerous than the UK, France, Canada, etc. Looking at recent events that have been hyped up and saying "wow it must be so dangerous there! " is foolish. There are obviously bad parts and there are isolated events but it's a very large country, the third largest in the world, with a high population. There is nothing inherently dangerous about the US, and personally I feel a lot safer anywhere in the US (with the exception of East Detroit and Camden) than I would in most of London.

The person complaining about "oh no I have to watch my kid, there's so much crime on the news oh no oh no panic panic panic! " has no idea what they're talking about. They panic and have no idea what reality is, and they need to grow the hell up - the crime here is statistically not that bad. Syria is probably ten times more dangerous. For the record I've only ever met a single person who's died in my entire life (18 yrs), and I live in a pretty dense population zone.

Although, leaders of other countries keep clear because Trump will slaughter your Twitter account if you anger him! - TheInsomniac

The Contenders

11 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

That is true this is the worst country ever with the drug cartels and the border to USA this is the worst country I've ever traveled to and the schools are the worst and the property housing those houses are made of cement I hate that and the apartments too! The schools are the worst they tell on guys to shave their hair when its long from preschool til high school that sucks has the worst school systems and the flag with an eagle killing a snake that's the worst flag ever made the USA flag is more beautiful than this one. Politics stealing money killing people Crime, dirty, corrupt and those are adjectives id use to compliment them. Mexico scored a 35, and was ranked as one of the top 75 most corrupt countries in the world. Thank god Donald Trump added this The worst country ever with the baddest economy and education system drug violence and crime killing and worst politics the food is terrible tacos and the Chinese food is even worse in USA is better. This should be number 1 on the ...more - Lordvader3500

WHY IS AMERICA IN THE TOP 5? PEOPLE... We need to put this list in a per-capita.
America is not this dangerous!
We are not in the TOP 10!

Where have you been? I have lived in America my entire life, the crime rate has gone up tremendously since World War Two... American's have lost there Patriotism... - LostDream258

I disagree with the fact that Mexico is in 7th. They should be in 3rd due to the deaths caused by the cartels and Mexico is way more dangerous than the usa. Does USA have power gangs or a powerful military. No they don't. Just because Mexico lost in the Mexican American war doesn't mean they are more powerful. Mexico is a fierce country. The USA is no more dangerous than a little doll.

I'd love to travel to Mexico but the thought of it scares the crap out of me, I was reading in the News Paper before, some cartel kidnapped An American man who was just on vacation down there with his wife for a few months. They tortured him, beat him, starved him and demanded his wife to pay a large amount of money if she was to ever see him alive again (I can't remember how much It was, but it was a lot of money) they kept him hostage for 4 months I think. He was only released once his wife had payed all the cash. He is Ok now. But No thank you I wont be travelling there any time soon.

12 Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Only Eastern Ukraine and Chernobyl are dangerous. Just because a portion of the country is dangerous doesn't mean the entire country is dangerous. The rest of Ukraine is safe, just don't go to Chernobyl and the eastern part.

Poor Ukraine it's getting horrible

Russia Is An Idiot,Seriously What Did Ukraine Ever Do To Russia?

Bandit broken government. Stop propaganda against Russia.

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

If you watched the news for the past few months (when it was all over the news), it is pretty dangerous. There is a corrupt government, many street protests in response, crumbling economy (oil prices were getting lower), and (perhaps the worst thing) the inflation there is some of the worst in the world. We talked about the whole crisis during Spanish class this school year (as of 5/6/19). One of my former Spanish teachers is actually FROM Venezuela. When I asked one of my sisters who has her class if they talked about the Venezuela crisis, the said teacher almost cried. This is very understandable because it's her country. I am saddened by what happened and I hope it can do better. - PhoenixAura81

How did USA get ranked more dangerous than Venezuela. Just shows how much people go outside their bubbles and check on reality...

Clearly, not everyone knows about Venezuela. With its corrupted government there is murder and kidnapping everyday.

Be careful of fighting and shooting!

14 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.

It's extremely hot there, one place there is hotter than Australian summer (trust me, I'm Australian). And in 2011...

Libya fell into complete Anarchy in 2011. It has to be above 20 at least. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

You really think Libya is safer than Malaysia?

They have got the best cuisine in Asia

15 South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana ...read more.

It is the only country where if your black your safe and if your white your targeted. Its literally the opposite of Alabama

South Africa get a lot of misconception besides Turkey and El Savaldor.

If somehow, someway I know it's easier said than done but if all the white people in south africa could somehow leave. that country will fall and native people living their will die,.

Should be number 2 on this list,
a place where you get murdered in front of your own house just because they can and your white... Whites should leave those shores,then they'll turn on each other next.
Bunch of hooligans

16 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. ...read more.

I'm Iranian myself and its true, Iran is somehow dangerous!

Let me describe it! To be honest now days its too hard to trust anyone in Iran cause anyone (even close family members) turn into money whores and scammers!

There is a lot of criminals like drugs, rape, scams and more but all of them are HIDDEN, i mean you will never hear on the news in T.V. that someone got raped, killed, kidnapped or killed on purposed! Expect some newspapers! They might just mention the people that were killed by accident! ( Although some channels that are Persian channels in UK like BBC Persian and manoto are the same as IRIB channels and they don't have balls to talk bout criminals in UK)

The salaries are low for normal people, the prices are doubled without any reason and ofc that will raise criminals!

Freedom of speech is under 0 here, if you just talk, post or do anything against government= R.I. P ( that's why I will not talk about government here cause there is a 90% ...more - HomogeneousKhalidus

It's false.i live in Iran, Iran is very safe and good country

Safe and dangerous at the same time. No terrorism though, and our crime rate is much lower than Russia's in a lot of cases. It is not really the criminals you have to worry about here, it's the government. Although they are not as oppressive as many other governments, they are still as bad and strict as the Soviet Union/USSR (which is now defunct). In fact, it is not nearly as oppressive as Russia's modern Federation Government that was adopted after the Soviet Union was disbanded. However, it is still certainly very lacking in many rights.

Although there are a lot of criminals, The U.S. and other countries have this too, but the main danger is the government. Christians are allowed, but they are under constant pervasive surveillance, and they need to fill out attendance records. The government is also very conservative and strict. Although it is not nearly as bad as Saudi Arabia (They are much worse), the incredibly conservative regime is known for imposing harsh sentences for most crimes. However, if there is one thing I should tell you, they are also very hard on terrorists, and do not allow any groups like that in this country.

17 Democratic Republic of the Congo The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo, DRC, DROC, Congo-Kinshasa, or simply the Congo is a country located in Central Africa.

Congo is a useless ghetto country where corruption and violences goes unpunished. The so-called United Nations are obvious to all of this. I don't feel sorry for the most of the Congolese, because most of them recreate violence overseas and create further problems abroad.

This should be way higher than the USA! This deserves to be in the top 5!

This Country Isn't Really Democratic

What,democratic republic of the Congo should be waay higher on the list

18 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. ...read more.

Russia like the US is dangerous. Russia under Putin is trying to restore their empire ( the bear was never dead, just hibernating ). The US is trying to desperately hold on to its empire. The current poisonous relationship between these two nations will see a miscalculation and when it's over, the remaining nations... England, China, and others may have to pick up the pieces. On the other hand, nobody in the world is safe if both the US and Russia remain hell bent in their current mindset.

I have many Russian friends but even they can prove that Russia is one of the most dangerous countries in the whole world. Even their presidents are criminals - Magnolia

Russia is dangerous because they have a very high use of drugs and alcohol most of the crimes in russia are alcohol related and siberia is very dangerous - Dvafan2

I don't know what all of you guys are talking about, these countries are not by how much missiles and nukes they have, these are by the crime rates, and wars. From 2008 to 2011 St Petersburg and Moscow had 7,644 murders... I am from russia myself and it is never safe out in the streets, especially at night. Mafia is everywhere, and the whole country is filled with alcoholics and killers. that's why I moved to USA - johnyfoxy

19 Honduras Honduras became an independent nation in September 15, 1821. Bordering Countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Capital: Tegucigalpa, FM Population: 8 Million Language: Spanish Major Exports: Coffee, Bananas, Apparel, and Palm Oil. Currency: Lempira

How is Honduras number 15? Honduras highest killing rate for the year 2014. The rate is 80.57! That's a high amount. I would stay far away from the Honduras to keep my life safe!

Honduras is not that dangerous, Yes, there are murders as in almost every country, over the years this murder rate has decreased. It isn't the most dangerous place on Earth, how is that even possible with al this wars occuring at the moment? If you come here you obviously won't be murdered just as you enter the country, and there are beautiful places in here and people is nice. I Love my country, flaws and all, and stop throwing negativity towards it please

Honduras its Honduras DUH you can never live there and if you go there you'll never come out alive

Honduras is extremely dangerous, with the corrupt government, drug lords, and gangs. Its had the highest homicide rate in the world for at least the last 7 years.

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

I worked in all Europe and I can assure you that the most dangerous country in Europe and one of the most in the whole world is Italy.

No road safety, if you have a car crash you are always responsible even if you've been severely injured. I know the case of a German little girl of 4 years old killed by a truck along a road, people around have accused the little girl, I remember her father completely destroyed; The trucker was drunk and phoning during the terrible impact.

This can resume how everything could happen there if you trust Italians, never trust those cowardly and liar people.

The problems in Italy are not coming from poor migrants, as Italian people tend to convince you, or from gangs from other countries like in other parts of Europe.
Not at all problems in Italy are due to part of Italians themselves and for the rest they just say nothing or worse they do agree.
There are plenty a really nice countries to visit, but not Italy.

Italy isn't dangerous. Sure there are many earthquakes and the whole fascist thing (back in WWII times), but it isn't really dangerous. It's actually a great country. - PhoenixAura81

Italy is the highest homicide rates in Europe.

You know why of course... :-((

21 Nigeria Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall ...read more.

This DEVIL country produces self-hating, rude, aggressive, greedy, racist, homophobic and Christian-pretending rats. They export scams, violence, AIDs/HIV, drug operations, drug mules, terrorism, sadistic rituals and too many children around the world.

Nigerian migrants transform any stable countries into unstable countries by undermining natives with race-hustling, playing the 'race card' to get free entitlement, breeding too many children like rats and creating violent crime.

They deserve to be run by a self-serving corrupt bureaucratic government and BOKO HARAM.

They say "God Help Us". I say "God is helping them suffer for their sins".

Mostly a city in southern Nigeria should listen to this or everyone there will get a year or 2 or more in jail. No shooting. This is against the law, which means, that you should'nt be hurting or killing people. Or me.

This should be no 10

Are you sure that Italy and South Africa (which are just countries with high crime rate) are more dangerous than a country with a civil, famine and Ebola? - Votebotingsucks

CAR is a mess. Tensions are high, lots of unrest and war could happen at literally any second. How often do you hear about a government advising you not to visit their country? How often do you see an airport as a refugee camp? - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Why wasn't this added before I added it? The country's own government advises you not to go there! How often do you hear about something like that?

THE poorest country in the world. - PhoenixAura81

23 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

I became a crime victim on my latest visit to the Philippines when my pockets were picked in a church of all places! But actually the largest churches and pilgrimage churches in the country do present particular risks for tourists and visitors. First the crowds of beggars, street vendors and churchgoers in the streets around the church can provide cover for pickpockets. But more especially when you attend a mass and have to stand still for an hour or so, probably outside because of the crowds trying to attend, beware that pickpockets can be watching you, especially when the collection is being taken, and you put your hand into your trouser pocket which contains your money (or so it seems to them). After attending a Sunday mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage in Antopolo, I walked into the side chapel containing the Black Nazarene figure, where I did feel someone brush against me but felt no more of it. But then I soon realised that my camera had disappeared from one ...more

The country itself has a stable government, great diversity, and nice and hospitable people (family values are everything to them) and everything but what makes it dangerous (and what's decimated the country in recent years) is the natural disasters. For example, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms ever recorded, decimated the Philippines in 2013. Look up pictures. - PhoenixAura81

The Philippines is not dangerous? There are many terrorists in Mindanao and there are many criminals and drug addicts in Manila. You call that safe?

What! Yo my family lives there and not at all dangerous earthquakes, typhoons, and all those just happen! This is a great, lovely country, Gosh! Shouldn't be on the list!

Exactly! I think most people are focusing on the climate rather than the people... - LostDream258

Me as a Colombian living in the United States I can tell you guys that Colombia isn't as bad as it seems to be honest.
Of course there are killings every single day, but that happens in almost every country around the globe, sadly we are very famous because of Pablo Escobar and all the bad stuff he did. Colombia was a hellhole 20 years ago, now it's a little bit safer, even though crime is still present I really don't think Colombia deserves such a high place in this list.

most kidnapping most dangerious 100 killings a day most dangerous cartels creaters of cocaine and other drugs rebels gurilla armed forces what more can you ask for?

No Colombia does tent have so many killings a day and we are taking care of our corruption problems and you just want to look bad anyway I think that we are not ranked this high

25 Republic of Macedonia Macedonia borders with Greece to the south, Albania to the West, Bulgaria to the East, Serbia and Kosovo to the North. It has a population of over 2 million people which are a mixture of pure Macedonians, Albanians, and Serbians. Macedonian is the language spoken in the country. Macedonia has beautiful ...read more.

A state that is controlled by the mafia and drug cartels. No thank you!

My friend that came from there needed to have a gun at all time if he went outside

Macedonia is a unique country. Poor people living in expensive houses and driving exotic cars. Where that money comes from? Easy: cocaine and guns. You can go to Tetovo and buy Plutonium on the spot. I'm not even joking! AK-47s can be bought for less than 50 US dollars. The Albanians of that country are extremely aggressive and will kill someone without hesitating. Crime is over the roof and the mafia is more influential than the local government.

With is it risky

26 Sudan

I travel in Sudan, I just find wonderful and helpful people. I also sleep in some house because people invited me. I was not scared at all, I love Sudan and Sudanese people

If you don't want to get killed by a 8 year old then don't come to Sudan. It has ongoing civil war and bandits will just behead you and rob your money

That was 20 years ago, the country is now safe, the south is the dangerous one. - Votebotingsucks

Sudan is nothing compared to South Sudan - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Really poor, but at least there is no war or terrorists there. - Votebotingsucks

27 El Salvador El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.

There is ongoing war in El Salvador between the government and gangs and a place where even kids will kill for just $20. It should be in the top 20.

Fanatic football country! that is good and bad! I am giving you the advice to don't go here!

Many restrictions gangs have made to the people

It has the highest homicide rate in the world. Enough said. - PhoenixAura81

28 Ethiopia Ethiopia, officially known as the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, is a sovereign state located in the Horn of Africa.

I'm not hating cause it's poor but, Yeah, Ethiopia is peaceful. Kidnapping happens all the time, not just African countries, it's very poor and tribes could kill you in the jungles or stuff.

You people are stupid Ethiopia is the BEST we created COFFEE our language is so beautiful

Why is this even on the list? It's one of the best countries ever.

Well, it is peaceful, but the water sucks.

Spain so dangerous

Spain more dangerous than Macedonia, Sudan, Congo, Nigeria... Qnd even Italy, the most dangerous European country, it is just ridiculous.

33 Jamaica Jamaica is an island country situated in the Caribbean Sea, consisting of the third-largest island of the Greater Antilles.

My friends's mom is from Jamaica after seeing that list I asked her about it and she said "not really" - Solarx

Jamaica is a great country. However there is corruption in the government and so affects the country; but this isn't every where. So, don't be of the impression that no street is safe to walk. As in any country we have our good and bad.

First I must say Jamaica is a beautiful country but what I don't understand is why the politics have the country in such a state... As a visitor there I was target for the US dollar... Scary, had to leave the country after two days on a two week vacation...

Jamaica is one of the coolest place on the planet. It is not as dangerous as some say. The people are warm, the beaches and awesome sites are great, the food is delicious, the air is fresh, if I were to make a choice as to where I would live it would definitely be Jamaica.

Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. ...read more.

The country has some potential and some good people live there but the government has other plans. They let extremists do and say whatever they want. There are also unusually a lot of criminals (mostly killers). The human life has no value there.

Its trash boi

Ok, what? 33rd most DANGEROUS place in the world? Obviously Albania has problems. The Socialists always buy elections, and that's why the Democrats lose. But Albania isn't dangerous. On a scale of 1-4, 4 being greatly considered for Terror Attack, and 1 not at all, albania is 1. Again, why is this Great, beautiful country 33? - EhhhBarca

This country is pure evil

35 Costa Rica Costa Rica, officially the Republic of Costa Rica, is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Caribbean Sea to the east, and Ecuador to the south of Cocos Island.

Horrible nation, horrible government, horrible people (especially the wealthy ones who are rapists, thieves, pedophiles, incestuous without moral)

Costa Rica is the tenth poorest country in North America, but it's still a safe country.

Costa Rica number #35? what? - LimePepsi25

No it's the 2nd richest.

36 Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

Vietnam is a horrible country. Only the rich kids don't realize it very bad. Yes, the war did ended a long time ago. But guess what, parents are worried about kidnapping and also there are a lot of murdering, thief, drug. Don't go to Vietnam for your own safety.

Why the hell Vietnam is the most dangerous country, I lived here for almost 19 years now and really nothing happened to me or anybody else around me. Vietnam should be take off this list

Why is Vietnam on this list? The war ended 40 years ago and I can tell you it's peaceful as I have been there and everybody is very nice and welcoming to tourists.

Vietnam, on the list really? It's a calm place, I have a friend who is from Vietnam, I don't hear them saying "Never go to Vietnam, it's bad and dangerous there! "

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

If you travel to Brazil you are likely to get mugged, because anyone who looks like a tourist is a target. Desperate poverty lies alongside great wealth in this country. Economic growth has widened the gap between rich and poor and made crime rates soar. Street crime is rampant in parts of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, and it is common for tourists to have their lives threatened for their valuables.

An already violent country elected a stupid president who wants to liberate weapons use in order to diminish violence.

It's like any other latin American country, if you don't want trouble, stay away from the shanty towns and poor areas. The violence here is 100% related to the social gap and its consequences.

Speaking foreign languages in poor areas draws unwanted attention, because people will always think you're from a rich developed nation, even when you're not.

If you don't speak a word of portuguese, you do better travel with a local friend, it's really easy to make Brazilian friends in travel social networks like CouchSurfing.

Brazil has the big crime in the world, we have higher on list this is no united state. Brasil people, is the favelas, the poor, lots weapon

I didn't know where Chechnya was so I looked it up, all I saw was war people on fire buildings on fire and all sorts of tragic incidents, I'm surprised this isn't #2

I don't believe this is officially considered a country.

It isn't a country but you don't need to call someone a noob..

This is not a country it is a Russian republic.

44 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.

I went to Egypt and the people where nice, I went out into a small town and ended up playing football match with some of the locals. Only one person was a bit weird around me and he wanted money, but I walked off and he left me alone. My friend was let onto a bus for free because he lost his wallet. But I got told stories of big crime and muggings, I also got warned by the locals not to stay around at night. From my personal experience though, the sights are amazing, you get to see the pyramids, most of the people are kind and weather is obviously, always warm. - MattKO

I think that Egypt is safe its army is strong but it gets little problems fro other bordering countries like Palestine

Conditions in Egypt since the military coup and the weather is unstable, it is possible to be arrested by the secret police and are detained to a period of more than one year and can be Achttavk during your return from your job because you refuse the political situation in Egypt

Not dangerous AT ALL.. France is more dangerous! Egypt used to have problems, but now it's extremely safe.

45 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.

My wife comes from the Philippines, and her brother works as a driver in Saudi Arabia, and he tells me how dangerous the roads are there, and much worse even than in Manila! I too have read that the traffic accident rate in Saudi Arabia (in terms of numbers of vehicles, journeys made, etc) is about three times what it is in the Philippines. I think there are two main reasons for this. First, as Saudi Arabia is a somewhat affluent country you have several teenage "boy racers" driving Ferraris, Lamborghinis, etc which they cannot handle safely and drive at breakneck speeds. Second, the rule that prohibits women from driving motor vehicles severely restricts ordinary people from going about their day to day business, as you would expect, but they get round this by having young male relatives, usually their sons as drivers, who are only about 14, 15 or 16 years old. You are therefore quite likely to see a car load full of black burka clad women being driven by one of these ...more

It's not dangerous nothing has happened to this country the beheadings and cut hands are for good reasons and for that everyone is safe here please visit it its very safe

That's false saudi Arabia is the Islamic country and in Islam there is a respect for a woman

Is getting killed a good reason in stead of jailed? Not safe at all, corrupt without oil.
