If you enter North Korea you will be arrested for calling it North Korea.
You have to call it The Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Voting is compulsory from the age of 17 and it's a one party.
It's proof that there is a Hell and its North Korea.

This is what North Korea rule's will look like:
Nuke America
No Leaving
No Jeans
No Internet
No Playing Minecraft
No Breathing
Cry like a baby when Kim Jong il dies

This country should be at the top. There leader cares more about neculer wepons than cureing the famin within in his country.

2 Sri Lanka Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India.

Are you Kidding' me!?
Sri Lanka has the Worst Laws of the whole Solar System if not for the whole Universe! With the blend of its horrendously abominable Culture, Sri Lanka has the most diabolically atrocious Laws known to Mankind & to the whole Human Race! The Lawyers are abjectly corrupted as innocent locals, we have to buy them Whiskey & Brandy if we were to win Lawsuits... The Lawsuits? (specially when it comes to Land & Property) No country on the surface of this planet wastes more time of the innocent people as in Sri Lanka! They waste 50 - 100 years to finish a single Lawsuit! The Great-Grandson of the poor plaintiff would be Dead by the time of the verdict! And most importantly, by 2012 (The Latest & the Greatest NEWS of the Country): the Chief Justice of the Country is also corrupted!
Need more to convince the obnoxiously abhorrent Law in Sri Lanka?

Corruption is the Cancer of my country Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan Bastards assault 6 year old girls repeatedly, but you can get away with excuse of you were drunk and by bribing. Very tolerant to the crime involved alcohol, drugs & smoking. The Worst, Worst, WORST Country with the WORST Laws!

It's Sri Lanka @ 1st & Saudi Arabia @ 2nd...
Sri Lankan Authorities made a fake Birthday to the maid Rizana Nafeek who went to Saudi Arabia (She was listed as 23 years old but her real age was 17! ) If Sri Lankan Authorities didn't alter her age, poor Rizana would not have been Sadistically Executed in Saudi Arabia.

The rules are murderers have left jail in just months.

3 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. The most spoken languages are Hindi and English, but there are 22 official Indian languages.

A failed state country filled with overpopulated village idiots, dishonest swindling traders, pollution, bureaucrats and a useless self-serving inbred Government. In India, women and children are mistreated and abused on a regular basis with no protection from useless authorities. Even cows are treated much better. Boycott India because it is not a tourist friendly country. Go to the far-east asian countries instead e.g. Vietnam, Thailand, Japan etc..

A lot better than a lot of countries in this list, but reservation and considering Muslims minority is the chink in its armour. The thing about selling hair and all, those aren't laws or anything enforced by the government, so...

I heard that in India they lie to women and tell them that their hair is for the gods but they cut off their hair and ship it off to the U.S.A and they get lots of money the women today still believe that it is to please the god's this is completely ridiculous. Women deserve to know the truth and India stop lying to your people they are citizens of the country probably longer than the people who lie and government they need to do something about this. It's wrong no matter what even if it get's you money

Indian law says removing bull's testicles without anesthesia, branding with hot iron, using them for loading and transport, killing for food is NOT CRUEL. But bull Taming is cruel.

2 Lakhs Indians who are in jail do not know why they are in jail

Saudi Arabia is the only country with a coastline along both the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, and ...read more.

Women are treated poorly. They aren't even allowed to ride bikes or drive. It doesn't help that the US is supporting that by buying oil from them.

Religious freedom is just horrible in Saudi Arabia.

Very draconian, especially towards gays and women.

Thieves lose a hand

The national capital is Beijing, and the most populous city and financial center is Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only official ...read more.

I do think that china and India can both improve their laws because they're not really the worst, tbh. China just needs to loosen up on speech and the apps. And India too needs to do that. I mean, people can't even utter the real name of the former pm of india without being arrested and Chinese people can't say that Taiwan is a separate country or talk about the Dalai Lama. China just bans too many apps, and India does the same, but is an expert at hiding it (ind banned tiktok, wechat, beauty plus, all QQ apps and so many more!)

There is absolutely no freedom of speech in the mainland. Many Chinese tech companies have to support the CCP, and it's absolutely mandatory. Looking at you, TikTok, Huawei and Tencent. And did I mention that the CCP spies on everyone around the world? Like, if you talk about the Xinjiang genocide, or independence of Hong Kong or Taiwan, or freedom of speech, they'd be on your tail in less than a second. The Chinese government is extremely scary.

Autocratic, patrimonial government which sees it's citizens as livestock to keep in the dark and to keep quiet.

You're not even allowed to watch or enjoy Winnie the Pooh over there.

The U.S legal system is less of a system and more of a hodgepodge of mixed opinions of racist, old white males. We have federal, state, country, city and local laws which sometimes come in direct conflict with one another.

Each state competes with one another to via for business at the expense of it's citizens. We have some laws that are completely unenforceable or outdated while other laws that are strictly enforced with huge penalties for minor acts. The laws that are enforced are mainly on the poor while the wealthy individuals can literally get off with murder.

We have many many people serving life in prison with no possibility of parole for nonviolent crimes, while murderers and rapists go free. We have more people in prison per capita than any other country on Earth more than even North Korea, China or Russia. There are thousand of prisons dotting the landscape. In many towns the only legitamate work available is working in a prison.
This is not a free country, it is becoming a vast gulag, this has happening in only the last 40 years.

US laws are ambiguous by design to facilitate the need of lawyers. If you are charged with a crime you have a 96% chance on conviction in any U.S. county. A good, and expensive attorney will give you greater success, but not a guarantee. I feel far safer when I am in S.E. Asia because it doesn't cost much to bribe, however be warned as to not cause them to loose face!

Usa government is putting all the dollars in arms race and military and usa is broke today, all progress gone to bullets, the American public getting poorer and poorer and republicans, democrats and corporate leaders are laughing their asses off and enjoying the strip dances.

The laws are very sensible. The gun laws are very strict.

We do have freedom of speech but that has been pushed to the limits.

Free healthcare

The drug laws in the UK are confusing.
If you are caught with or taking drugs you will be arrested.
If you are caught taking drugs in the past 12 months. You are very likely need to attend rehabilitation and you need to give names to avoid prison
If you are caught taking drugs after 12 months of you taking them nothing will happen, but you are likely need to take rehab

The uk courts at corrupt! Judges do what the want, police think they can do and say what they want, things need to change

I still cannot figure the situation with freedom of speech in this country.

Health & safty put to extreme levels. Awful education minister.

DUH they treat women horrible women can't drive go out by themselves can't go to school and are allowed to get rapped by husband. They can't even use the same doors there is one door for women and on for men. Cannot show anything in public except their eyes. Also If you critiquing Muslim religion you will be killed.
