Rich history and culture

24 Finland Finland

Everyone compared Finland always with Sweden saying like Sweden is the best country ever when Finland is the worst country ever. What's wrong with Finland?

Sweden is always at good places but why not Finland?

Ps:Sorry for bad English

Finlad is nordic country that was ruled by the Swedish and Russian before gaining independence. It has beautiful landscapes from farmside to lushy forests to hills and mountains.

Every kid thinks that Sweden is better.

30 Taiwan Taiwan Republic of China was established in 1912. After the Chinese Civil War (1949), the Chinese government relocated to Taiwan. Its capital was originally Nanjing but now it's Taipei. Mandarin is the most spoken language.

Not even member of the United Nations and mostly not recogniced as a sovereign country but a huge powerhouse in Asia, being one leiding exporter of high-tech goods. Together with South Korea considered "The little tigers of Asia". - 19Leviathan14

A lot of times Taiwan is mistaken by Thailand. Also due to the pressure from China, they are not even recognized as a ountry even though they have their own president elections, flag and national anthem. Although they all speak Chinese, Taiwan is very different from China and other Asain countries by its unique people, culture and food!

I'm Taiwanese-American, born in the U.S. but I have been traveling to Taiwan every year since I was a baby. The people are honestly, the nicest, most understanding people, the food is SO good, and the culture is so vibrant. My mom is from Dongshi so I always visited the countryside on my visits. It's a gorgeous country, and I'm so glad it's being recognized more and more.

Taiwan is a part of China. - golin

31 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Always in the shadow of Great Britain, or should I say England? They make the second-best beer in the world after Germany and we're cheated by France in the 2010 Qualifiers, but we kicked the French asses for them haha! - 19Leviathan14

Ireland has all the green landscape

32 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. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second more.

If you look beyond the violence and oppression it's actually a very beautiful country.

No matter who says what, Pakistan is a very strong country. A nuclear power, one of the largest Army and top rated Airforce, very bright and English speaking work force, highly capitalistic and a trading nation.

Strong Military, Nuclear Weapons, High-tech weapons. The economy is also very underestimated.

Beautiful cultures,amazing people,beautiful country

Most people know only about Malaysia and sort there are far more places to visit here, even we filipinos don't recognize the beauty of our country much.

Philippines is A beautiful country! ABUNDANT IN NATURAL RESOURCES!

34 New Zealand New Zealand

One of the best places on Earth, the economy is great, they have a political system that works, and their wildlife/nature is amazing. Oh yeah, and their all super-nice.

They are well-educated, intelligent, so kind, wealthy.
Even though New Zealand is such a small country, they actually got so many medals in London Olympic, also they have the world strongest national Rugby team.

Now they are storing their resource and using the intelligence to grow their wealth.

I feel sorry for New Zealand, I live in Australia and I realise that New Zealand is always called Australia or doesn't exist at all. I know a few people from there and they are brilliant, I've been there recently and most of the people there were much the same. All New Zealand gets in the spotlight is LOTR being filmed there, they deserve far more.

"A great little country that hardly anyone knows about"

35 Austria Austria Austria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often more.

I can't believe Austria is after England or Italy. It is simply beautiful, both natural landscapes and cities and the people are just awesome.

Austria has so much to offer but Austria is kinda like in the shadow of its big brother Germany and the cousin Switzerland

Extremely underrated, but it's one of the most beautiful and civilised countries in Europe!

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

Our reputation has been struck down by the "Chavez era" but we are an amazing countries, with the most beautiful girls and landscapes. We also have the biggest oil reserves surpassing Saudi Arabia!

Venezuela is not very well known. Venezuela is very beautiful with breathtaking landscapes that some are past a billion years old into forming, beatiful women and considered one of the most Biodiverse countries in the world. Venezuela is not just beautiful, but is actually useful, with the largest oil and natural gas reserves.

Venezuela is beatiful and is progressing into a better country.

37 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.

Thank you. Please, everyone suddenly is hating on America now. Sure, we do a lot of horrible stuff as do all countries. Everyone talks about how we're "overrated" and whatnot, when really we do a lot of great things and if it weren't for us, a lot more countries would have fallen apart A WHILE AGO.

This should be higher. People claim that USA is overrated but the only people who overrate it are just a handful of Americans. The rest of the world HATES America! This is coming from a non-American

I'm not saying the USA isn't a great country, because it is but it definitely isn't underrated

They keep on going into everyones business like russia. That is why russians are all like we will make america bleed for what they have done.

39 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 inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Out of all the countries in the world, North Korea seems to have the best tourist attractions including starving families and a fat leader who is more of a hermit than me, and that's saying a lot. South of North Korea, is South Korea, which is clearly a highly powerful nation in many ways and is much better than North Korea, but that doesn't change the glorious fact that eventually the USA will fall and Kimmy will prevail!

This was sarcasm. North Korea is a failure.

The best better country of the best world

Guys stop the sarcasim of course North Korea is the best country in the world geez you guys are dumb

Not Korleea

I was tempted

It has an area of 238,391 square kilometres and a temperate-continental climate. With over 19 million inhabitants, the country is the seventh-most-populous member state more.

Probably the best and most beautiful country in Europe and most underrated in Europe and the world. It has breathtaking landscapes, the largest part of the Carpathians and Danube, kind and happy people, very beautiful and intelligent girls and the hard working poeple.

A great country. Ignore the sterotypes. Romania is a country worth visiting and severly underrated. Enough said!
