If Kim Jong un doesn't watch it he'll start wwIII and he will be ruined and defeated cus unlike hitler in wwII he won't have a bunch of powerful countries on his side, he will be invaded immediately, and likely the US won't wait 2 years to enter into the war. I mean his method for getting allies for the potential for war is by threats for a nuclear attack when all those countries could just easily develope a strong nuclear defense.
Welcome to North Korea. The place that everything can be illegal. Made by the tyrant known as Kim Jong Un which was originally made by his grandfather known as Kim Il-sung with his father Kim Jong Il. Worst government with people starving while the Kims soaking in gold.
North Korea is like the modern day USSR. those of you who complain about living in America should be glad that you don't live here. at least the American government won't execute you for trying to leave the country
How can the US's government be worse than this?
Kim Jong Un joke: It's hard enough being the only fat guy in your class, but its more tough when you're the only fat guy in your whole country...
If you were wondering how this could be worse than North Korea? Well let's think about the fundamental purpose of government. To control people where they need to be controlled. Then let's see whether the Somalian government does that. The answer is, nope, not really.
The situation in Somalia is bad, but there was nothing that the government do to stop what happened.
I knew the US was bad, but not this bad! Seriously! Clearly the worst!
It doesn't HAVE a body that can possibly govern...
The people that were entrusted with the government offices have continued to grow wealth while the people continue to be some of the poorest in the world.
They keep people of color oppressed, then they make white people feel guilty about their history through the education system. People of color are raised to believe that whites are the source of all their suffering, and in return, whites think that they are whiners because many white people didn't do anything wrong. Notice how the government turns people against each other? This gives the government more power because people will ask them to make things better. There will never be racial equality unless there is a better government.
I don't know what happens in North Korea. I do know what's happening in Middle East and how the United States are responsible for so much of what's going on, while mistreating their own colored people for no other reason but their blatant xenophobia. Their hatred for communism and anything that "seems" alike makes them blind.
I can't say I hold their government in any positive regard because of all this.
The government is working against it's own citizens. They aren't open with us and in turn are failing us. They never think about what's best for the people as a whole, but only care about personal beliefs. What happened to a form of government that was"for" the people? Don't get me started on how entitled some people in the government are! And our president? An absolute fool!
US government has been spending $8 Million Dollars PER HOUR on WAR for past 15 YEARS straight.
Obviously nothing improves as a result of these wars but you can bet some people are getting richer and richer.
The media in US is full of propaganda and social-engineering.
People ready to testify with knowledge about govt misdeeds wind up dead every time.
Majority of citizens are clueless and physically ill.
If you are black here-you might be killed by a cop because it hapens daily. Non-criminals get killed and they show us the videos on T.V..
What am I doing about it? I am shopping for a new country.
Just look at Syria. No offense Syrians but the country is the exact definition of a hole. There government is a dictatorship the state controls everything hell the government even ordered the army to shoot their own people.
As a Syrian myself, don't listen to what the media tells you, we are in horrible times but our president is not killing us. DO. NOT. believe in these horrendous lies, we are going through the worst of situations, but this is just brainwashing propaganda
Not even Kim Jong Un goes around killing his own people, Syria's government actually bombs its own country. Talk about sad. Hopefully things in Syria get better soon...
Honestly, I think this should be above the United States. I mean, this is the only government that'd have the balls to drop an entire atomic bomb on their states...
Religious freedom is recognized, but Christians must sign federally-enforced attendance records. Other minority religions must do the same, and if you think Sunnis are exempt, think again! They're not. Same surveillance for them too. Other than that, the government is a lot better than other countries (COUGH) NORTH KOREA (COUGH). However, it is on par with the Soviet Union in terms of oppression (modern Russian Government is more repressive than even the Soviet Union was. Says something about modern Russia).
USA at 2 Iran at 6 Iran is a awful repressive regime that punishes people who disobey their Islamic laws they even have the death penalty for gay people and regularly enforce it. They also spy on other religions. They also threaten their neighbors and other nations they don't like. You liberals seriously need to get over the fact that trump won.
The government here at least works and gets stuff done. Though they are Islamic Fundamentalists, they allow almost every other religion to live in Iran freely, though Jews are under constant surveillance (as how Muslims are in the US). The Bahais are constantly persecuted and murdered though =(.
Islamic Fundamentalist nut jobs who hi-jacked the hopes and dreams of a warm and noble people. Very Very sad...
Let's compare the Taliban government with the Nazi government.
-Nazis believe the Aryans are the master race. The Taliban believes the Pashtuns are the greatest race.
-Nazis persecuted Jews, Slavs, and anti-fascists, the Taliban persecuted anyone that isn't a male, Sunni, or Pashtun.
-Both are a brutal dictatorship and oppress anyone that speaks against them.
-Both ruined the image of their countries, and is considered enemies with almost every country in the world.
-They ruined a holy symbol. The Nazis took the swastika from the Hindus and the Taliban took the Shahada. They're now related to racism and terrorism.
-They're both extremely nationalistic.
Conclusion: Afghanistan under the Taliban is basically Nazi Germany of the modern era.
This country should be number one in this. It has worst government in the world.
This entire worthless, uncivilized country should be brutally nuked into oblivion until there are no more immature trolls and bots on YouTube and Twitter mocking the recent deaths of Schaffrillas' brother and best friend.
At this point, the Russian government is pretty much like Chinese government lite. Not as Authoritarian but getting dangerously close as Putin slowly abuses his power and makes Russia an Authoritarian Ultranationalist state erasing any opposition to his rule.
Let's not forget how he funds Russian Separatists to cause a civil war in Ukraine and take it's lands despite the fact that the Russian minority in Ukraine was not oppressed. It's no wonder that Putin's popularity among Russians is dropping. Soon, the only people who would unironically support him are vatniks.
Continued. Everybody who voted America as the worst goverment, go live in Russia or China. Trust me in 6 months you will be crawling, bleeding, begging, and crying to come back in. Yes America is flawed but so is every country. America has a small goverment for a reason.
No Russia is definitely not communist do a little research before you write something down, and all this about how awful Russia is for its involvement in the middle east is idiotic. The U.S gives Saudi Arabia 34 billion dollars to bomb whoever they please.
Yep. China (Mainland) is basically becoming the new North Korea at this point, ever since Xi Jinping got elected. Also, ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, the rates of propaganda and censorship skyrocketed by shipping it worldwide, and even worse, many Westerners are brainwashed by the government as "white monkeys". The government spreads propaganda through modern apps like TikTok, which is a platform many people use nowadays, as well as making them shill for the government as a result. We need to be on our feet nowadays for a third World War or a second Cold War, as the CCP may be behind it.
It and North Korea are essentially if 1984 actually happened. Completely totalitarian, censors everything, including harmless things that have no reason to be banned at all and let's not forget how they have 1 million Uyghurs(Most of whom have probably not done anything to deserve it) in "re-education" camps.
This is why I admire the Kong Kong protesters, they are risking their lives, standing up to a Totalitarian regime, to ensure liberty in their area for at least the next 20 years.
Chinese government are bunch of robbers, the country was invaded back than and now they're trying to do the same thing to other countries, people have now freedom under their govern rule.
This has to be way higher. They use their own people for cheap, mass production. For everything "Made in China", at least one person had to suffer labour. This should be way, way higher.
India Should be in number 1, because North Korea ruled by single person not Government. Indian Politican System is worst, Every Government offices engaged in high corruption which supported by Politicians, Every indian struggling to get their justice. No person will not get justice without Money.
By the way the Indian people are great people. Many think that Indians are dirty filth but this is not true. In the end, it is the politicians' fault that India is not yet developed. The politicians care more about themselves than the people of India.
India is full of Hindu fanatics. Its actually Hindus who are the worst, I have no idea why. They're filthy and black, a Hindu fanatic even murdered Gandhi. Today, Hindu fanatics kill people for eating meat. Hindu fanatics slander other religions. Hindu fanatics support violence. BJP needs to go, Modi needs to go.
Very corrupt. I am Indian, so I know. We need better politicians. I think Modi is a step in the right direction. One day, India will have little corruption.
Persecute other religions and women have little rights. Up until 2017, they couldn't even drive without a male companion.
Also, they commit war crimes in Yemen, targeting schools, hospitals and weddings. It's sad that the government of my country(United States) actively helps them in doing so.
This should easily be in the top 5. Maybe top 3 even.
How are they not higher on this list?
Ever since Gaddafi was removed, this country has been a failed state.
This government's involvement with terrorism has led to the jihadist conflict all throughout the Middle East. They claim they are trying to end it, but they are simply pouring more and more money into the hands of Al Qaeda.
They diverted American Aid for Afghan rebels to the Taliban, which provided a training ground for the US
It is a poor and inefficient socialist terrorist country.
All government needs to get there act together.
This is what happens when you close your eyes and vote for Nawaz Sharif.
Most racist country in all of Southern Africa. If you're looking for a country to move to in the southern part of the continent, just move to Botswana or Namibia instead. They're far more accepting of other ethnicities than Zimbabwe is.
This is a government which is composed of illiterate criminals and corrupt that nothing matters except profit. Panties and over the bodies of their own people to not only lose their function. Employed exclusively by your tribe, and the others harassed and expelled. This is a government which, in practice, very close to fascism! Violence against the media, concealing important facts and disclosure of nonsense and lies are the basis for the functioning of the government. They are known from the time of wars and poverty. Today we are again approaching that time, under the auspices and with the blessing of Western countries.
Masked people destroying some buildings in the middle of the night in a street in Serbia's capital city is not a terorist act, while Police do not know about it, the communal police neither, the officials of the municipality, city or the state, also nothing. Nobody knows and nobody cares, also nothing happend. Few buildings destroyed? Deal with it & have a nice time in Serbia.
Serbia is governed by self-centered egomaniac who has managed to take control over all spheres of public life within his grasp, under the charade of democratic transparency maintained by frequent elections - held for no reason whatsoever other than maintaining a state of permanent pre-electoral campaigning.
Our prime minister is selling everything that is valuable in our country to his foreign partners! He is essentially selling national property as it is his own.
He adjusted laws, police, courts of law... all that is needed to assist him in his treason!
The only thing keeping people together is the hatred they breed towards those who are different. They keep killing people much more vulnerable and without little regard for them as human beings, and discriminate against all Palestinians as if they were all the same.
United States, for its abusive, war-oriented exterior relationship policies and mistreament of colored people, would come first, but when it comes to intolerance and war-mentality towards others, Israel -by a slight margin- takes the cake.
Israel directly killed many Palestinians. They also have some influence over the US, causing the US to attack its enemies such as Iraq, Iran, Libya Syria, etc.
That leaves Palestine without an ally and the Zionists controlling a land that isn't theirs. They also created Isis to raise tensions in the middle east and overthrow the Middle Eastern governments.
Israeli government is a terrorist organisation,They kill innocent Palestineans for racist believes. While people may say this is because of war, No wake up!, It's genocide not war. They keep saying Israel is the best democracy in that ME. Nonsense! Go to the west bank and Gazza and you will know the truth.
Very arrogant, they think they are the chosen people and that other races don't deserve to life... Exactly like the Nazis, they victimized with the Nazi stuff and they act like Nazis.
People who vote for the US just don't know the rest of the world. Here, we live in a complete and utter corruption/drugdealing mess. Ok, we have oil. But we give half of it to Cuba and the rest is to buy the friendship of neighbor countries. Meanwhile, our hospitals and health system are looking like Africa, we have the highest inflation rate of the world, and one of the highest murder rates too. 98% of the media belongs to the goverment, they torture opposition prisoners in our overcrowded prisons. EVERYONE gets robbed. Motorized vehicles rule the deteriorate streets. We also have the lack of water, the constant blackouts, making two hours lines to get Toilet Papaer, vegetable oil and flour, one of the slowest internet connections...
All the government does is steal our money for them.
A wealthy nation. Venezuela ranked 3rd strongest and fastest economy growth in the world in the early 60s. This nation had more oil than the UAE. Rich and bless in natural resources, Venezuela has one of the worse regiment in the world. Venezuela ranks #1 most dangerous country in the world. Highest inflation. It is imposible to survive in a country were its lowest minimum wage is $14 per month
Corruption continued for over two decades. Once a rich land that has had its system overhauled by corruption and has lost its ability to set conditions for people to survive.
This country have the most powerless hour beenmemt in the word. The gouverent is not even able to communicate with the nation about humanity crime made in the country. What a sad nation
In this country, the riches people from the gouvernment mostly touch more than one million. Then, there is not middle class, only poor
Beautiful and Amazing, but ruled badly, Hopefully one day it's going to change
