Most Evil Countries of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Nazi Germany

Actually, 6 million people only accounts for the Jewish population exterminated during the Holocaust. That's not even taking into account Polish and Soviet prisoners of war, as well as gypsies, homosexuals, disabled people, and other minority groups. It's actually estimated that over 60 million people were killed as the result of the Second World War (ten times more than just 6 million), which was directly caused by the Nazi regime in Germany with their invasion of Poland. So yeah, the Nazis were NOT nice people. Undoubtedly one of the most evil countries that have existed in history, and the fact that it happened so recently makes it this all the worse, since it is fresh in our memories.

Nazi Germany has caused many deaths during the Holocaust. If you want to learn more about this topic, you should read Number The Stars. It gives a view of the effects of the Holocaust in a place called Copenhagen, Denmark. Nazi Germany had hatred and racism towards the Jews. About 6 Million Jews died during the holocaust. Also gypsies and homosexuals were attacked to. They were sent to extermination camps.

They killed 6 million people. Worst deed ever. They killed innocent lives. 6 million!

2 Soviet Union

Killed, imprisoned, brainwashed, and discriminated against more people than Nazi Germany and lasted much longer. Caused horrid broken systems of communism and socialism to rip apart countries all over the world with economic downfall and starvation. Even infiltrated western education and convinced the youth that it and its ideology weren't terrible. From Lenin to Gorbachev their own leaders were a bunch of oppressive mass murderers. Nazi Germany is close, but their popularity is the only thing they have over the Soviets.

Their first leader Stalin killed around 20 million of his own people this doesn't include any other wars or foreign affairs they were involved in. Also this is just Stalin there was other leaders and let's not forget the Russian revolution

The government killed or sent people to Siberia for no reason. They just thought they were an enemy of the state. For no reason at all

3 British Empire

10th yet again (this should be at least in the top three, along with the Mongols and Nazi Germany). I think this shows how many shameless defenders of this rapacious, mass-murdering entity are still there.

Genocide across continents (India, Ireland, Australia), biological warfare (North America), destruction of wildlife (Asia, Africa), slavery (banning it well after having profited from it and when it made more sense to replace with indentured labour). Looting their colonies dry (for over a hundred years).

It was built on the bodies of millions across continents.

They are the worst nation I history!

Should be first on this list

Should be number 1 but then these genocidal scumbags write the history books.

4 North Korea 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. more.

North Korea is the Most Evil Nation to ever Exist

Y isn't this number 1. If anything Kim Jong Un is worse than Hitler and Stalin combined. He does what Hitler did but instead of Jews, it is Christians who R getting imprisoned, tortured and executed abd they also have concentration camps in North Korea. North Korea is also more of a hell than the USSR and Nazi Germany were. He wants 2 nuke the US and is doing nuclear tests. - POKEGAMERZ

Kim jong un in a nutshell

Kim jong un: I wanna do this

North Korean logic:
Kim Jong Un: you want hair cut?
Civilian: Yes
Kim Jong Un: Welp fill out all these papers and then sign here here and here then... (three and a half hours later) then sign this and this and this (So many hours that I lost count) and then take a bullet to the head.

5 United States of America United States of America 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 more.

The American government is just a cancer that needs to die and get rid of. USA and North Korea should become best friends because they both have extremely evil governments. They kill millions of Native American tribes celebrate it as a holiday bomb countries in the Middle East no universal healthcare poor get taxed and the rich don't. USA should be 2nd place. North Korea 1st because North Korea threatened the world. It makes North Korea a slightly more evil than USA. But USA is still a terrible awful government. Canada is a way better country than this garbage dump.

The U.S. has done questionable things, but "evil" is not the correct word for it. The nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were in retaliation, the Japanese emperor was warned before each bombing, and thousands of pamphlets were dropped down on the cities before the bombs were dropped (In the Japanese language) warning people to evacuate. But the emperor wouldn't let them. Also, the reason they get into stuff with the middle east is because countries there have had extremely corrupt governments that had to be overthrown, were thought to have weapons of mass destruction, or posed a global threat to the peace of other countries. It's all a part of the war against terrorism. And a lot of the time, the leaders of those countries actually ASKED for the U.S.'s assistance. And when their term ended, the U.S. forces would leave. We also have the Monroe Doctrine, stating that we can't involve ourselves in European politics, and the middle east is what needs the most attention, anyway. ...more

Roughly 3 out of every 5 native American tribe helped us a war then we go out and torture native Americans. Not to mention we are the only country to launch a nuke at another country. We killed millions of innocent lives while we just could have killed five people. In our country people die from over eating while in Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America people die from lack of food - francesco

Many of these countries are on this "Evil" list as a direct result of the United States (as well as Britain and other world powers) sticking there nose in places they did not belong.

6 Mongol Empire

Rush trough urasia messacre other empire took over 78% of asia but now they live freely in desert

Basically tossed all of Asia into ruin and killed off 11% of the world’s population through needless massacres and Genghis Khan’s ruthless policies. Baghdad, arguably one of the most developed cities of the time, would be absolutely destroyed, all it’s wonders going into ruin and almost all people living there killed. Beijing fares a similar fate, but thankfully would eventually recover. Most historians place the death toll of the Mongol Empire’s conquests as high as 40 million.

7 Ottoman Empire

Make a nightmare life for all neighbour nations for thousands of years, and they would still do if they could,

Ottoman empire is not evil!

Throughout its history, the Ottoman Empire exterminated the population of many subjugated countries, ending its bloody history with the Armenian Genocide and other Christians.

1. Armenians Genocide(1.500.000 dead), Assyrian Genocide(780.000 dead), Pontic Greek Genocide(350.000) and lot of other massacres
2. Historical and Cultural Genocide

8 Empire of Japan

Japan is the worst country. Kidnapped people from South Korea and put them in a coal mine and didn't care if anyone died at all. They show off extension of an island (if you watch battleship island) they only talk about the development not the slaves. Not only that they took over South Korea and attacked every villages & killed women and children as well. Also, they would force the people to change their names in Japanese and only Japanese teachers would carry swords to school. The protesters had to be killed instead of going to jail too. Also attacked pearl harbor in 1941 and attacked the ship which J.F.K was in. Attacked China and Russia as well while taking over South Korea and have the lamest excuses saying that we attacked those countries because they were weak. There are about 100 more that happened but this is the "simple" summary

In the Nanjing Massacre, the buried people alive (making them dig the hole themselves), gangraped then disfigured women ranging from babies to grandmas, had beheading contests, made all kinds of surgeries and experiments without anesthetics, and deny all of this today to save face.

Duh?! The Japanese were the most evil, vile, inhumane rats ever lived! They enjoyed killing especially civilans!

If Japan gets to be on top, Bart-Toons will be so happy.

9 Spanish Empire

I truly admire the extremely richness of Spanish culture. From its painters, writers, builders... And everything they gave to all human kind.
But... have to admit that its "conquistadores", were anything but kind, and lead the European world conquest much before than anyone else. Together with its terrible inquisition, the expelling of hundreds of thousands of people due to a faith and ethnic "purification" together with the slavery (they started everything)... gave one of the most terrible "goverments" in history...
Rich and fascinating from a cultural standpoint? Of course, I truly love Spain (I've lived there)! But, abominable regarding current human rights conception (also think than all major nations were really cruel in the past, so... )

No my friend is from Spain and he is not evil Spain is good! Period.

Should be first on this list filthy spanish pig

10 Israel 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. more.

Only democratic state amongst barbaric countries.

This is absolutely disgusting. Jews are greedy, selfish and lazy scums of the earth. Like wow, they started wars because Hitler's mother has died and made Germany is a hellhouse of a country with horrendous economy because of them, and many, many more things they did that is absolutely unacceptable. All they care about their stupid country and religion, and love to make whole humanity and earth look like a slap to the face, and people are starving from poverty because of them. Also, fun fact: Since world war II ended and half of them has died out, the Germany, as today, is a powerhouse with their amazing economy, and the population of Jews are low, so I wonder why?

Blows up women and children with the excuse of Hamas. What is more cowardly? Using human shields or blowing all of them up anyways?

Colony made by european khazar jews.

The Contenders

11 Khmer Rouge Cambodia
12 Kingdom of Italy

The worst, pale copy of the insane Roman Empire a peanuts compared with Ottoman or Mongol at least those two had great culture.

Mussolini was the most horrible person elected by people

Worst, evil is a weak word

Starting from the collapse of the Ancient Hellenic Kingdom of Greece (Byzantium). Italy has made a lot of killing, torture and slavery since it's inception. Berlusconi, Caesar and Mussolini should've never been in office. Italians can be very vulgar, dictative and conniving to get what ever they want. Wage slavery in Italy today is like the Disability Human rights crisis in Australia. It's horrible and should've been dissolved long ago.

13 Pakistan Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan and is known as the world's second most beautiful capital city.

22 Palestine Palestine

Screw you all. Palestine shouldn't be on this list. The people aren't terrorists. They don't even have weapons (other than pebbles). Israel is the terrorists here. They won't stop killing people in Palestine because they're mad that their country is so small.

Palestine shouldn't be in this list

If Israel is here Palestine has to

Too low.

25 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and it's current prime minister is more.

Did worse things before the Nazis, and in fact, murdered more innocent people during the British Empire where they colonised in places such as Africa (targeted black people), India, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia (targeted Chinese people), Australia (targeted aborigines), America and more.

You would think that Nazi Germany was the first to use concentration camps? In fact, the British Empire was one of the first civilisation to use them to imprison and murder innocent non-white natives.

Prior to all the evil things they did in the past, have you not notice that the British Government is trying to patch it all up by decolonising what's left in the Empire, introducing and passing the Discrimination Act 1995, 2005 and 2010, and finally trying to turn the UK in to a multi-cultural rainbow nation. Hmm, guilty conscience comes to mind, and mud sticks.

Very evil

Turkey is the worst country to imagine... People are in prison for no reason, if you are a newspaper, you are in big trouble for no reason... a man writed that Turkey people sell guns to Suriye.. and then the man was about to get arrested, but he ran to Germany, Turkey people said that he needed to go to prison, but thank god the German people said no and knew the man didn’t do anything wrong. And there isn’t even many places tourist’s can go. And no museum... espically Ankara. People are screaming “OOOh Turkey” which is annoying, their school also sucks. I hardly wanna go there! Worst country! People get imprisoned for no reason, hope this get better...

This country is filled with some of the most vile, disgusting and hateful people. Croats killed countless Serbian men women and children during WW2. They deported most of it's Serb population in the 90's and burned their houses so that they would never return. It is horrific to think that a country that still worships Hitler has made it into the EU. Truly disgusting.

33 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

A lot of people don't realize this, but Japan did terrible things during World War Two. They killed millions of people across Asia, even more than Nazis did. Soldiers terrorized villages and raped innocent civilians. Everyone needs to educate themselves on what happened during that dark time. Japan is a peaceful country full of kind and welcoming people now, but people shouldn't forget its deep, dark history.
