Top 10 Countries with the Rudest People

The Top Ten
1 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 British Empire in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence. They won their independence in 1783 with... read more

They just suck. They think the USA is the best country in the world and even brainwash kids by making them do the pledge of allegiance every morning. The us just plain sucks.

Totally absurd. I've travelled and lived in a number of countries. When you're strictly talking about people and character here (not politics or power) American's, in general, are some of the most helpful, friendly, kind, creative, open, tolerant, honest, and fun people on earth. Every possible race, color, nation, religion, orientation, and creed can be found in even smaller cities, in the middle of nowhere, in the US. It's the melting pot of the world and it's diversity is unmatched anywhere Are there rude Americans? Of course. It's not perfect. But there is no way it's objectively one of the 'rudest' countries on earth.

I was raised in California inland and demoralizing is seen as normal from the beginning. You can tell from all there abuse in my writing. Think of the melting pot but just of the abusive people of the world. The education system forces "personal responsibility on unknowing children" mainly to dazzle the student body so rich and wealthy can walk out with an education, where the confused can suffer. The religious institutions are just as abusive. They will promise wholesomeness and it's a lie, most are ran by psychologist for free labor and other disgusting crimes. Being "bad" is seen as "cool". All these people have The land of World Star Hip Hop is the rudest place in the world. Why do they do this? because when there is a large neglected population there are large groups of rich and wealthy. Mexico is just as awful, they intend to make everyone poor by the pope demand.

2 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately 38.5 million people, Poland is the sixth most populous member state of the European Union... read more

The inferiority complex is strong with these ones. Very obvious, and super unpleasant to interact with. I dread my flights between the U.S. and my country, because I have to go through Poland and have to sit next to the natives for 13 hours. Just so blatantly rude and aggressive, especially their "women" (honestly that term is too generous for them).

I lived there for years. I've traveled most of the world and lived in four countries (including the hilariously #1 on this list - a straight hater vote). Without question Polish people are some of the most base, tactless, ignorant, arrogant, deluded, shallow, racist, anti-semitic, lying, thieving, backstabbing, complex-riddled, and you got it, RUDE people on planet earth. Making it worse, they actually think they're wonderful, as many of them are also the least Christian, 'Christians' you'll ever meet. This is only funny the first ten times they tell you how lovely they all are (and start criticizing your country as many are also 'global/cultural' experts). They are on these kinds of lists for a reason. Yes, there are some exceptions, but every cool and thoughtful Pole I knew there hated it and was either planning an escape or was trapped there because of family.

3 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to the Atlantic Ocean. France spans 675,000 km2 (251,000 mi2) and has a total population of 67 million... read more

Everybody knows that French rudeness is just a stereotype. Most of the time it's just a misunderstanding due to cultural difference (hey you are in an other country, people don't think like you, when you travel you must to be open minded). Sometimes is just a reaction of French people when you are rude to them without knowing it.
I think it's overrated because there is so much tourists, especially in Paris : Parisians are hurry because they go to work and every stranger stop them to ask a question or block the passage. It's the same problem in every big city.
It's mathematic : lots of tourists means more upset tourists than in other countries.
Once I go to Venice, there are tourist traps everywhere, restaurants are expensive and the food is awful. In Great Britain there was a sign "no dogs, no French" in front of a shop, there is no such things in France against any country.
But it's ok I think this stereotype mostly encouraged by French bashing. I don't know where that comes from, maybe a joke at the biginning and some hateful people take it seriously. Fortunately most of people are just kidding and like even love French people.

4 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 its current prime minister is Boris Johnson. The UK is a Unitary State consisting of Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland... read more

People living in England, particularly in London, and other parts of the South East, are ugly, obese, unhygienic, barely house-trained, rude, obnoxious, race-baiting, schizophrenic, sociopathic, gaslighting inbreds of all communities and cultures. They are sanctimonious hypocrites with bad genetics that constantly vote for their own demise and marry their own cousins. Also they have a diet of junk food, reality TV shows, social media, and lack of moral or ethical guidance. There are criminals on the streets and in uniform serving our corrupt police force, crooked councils, our kangeroo courts and in our bureaucratic Parliament.

There's a part in the UK, Where I live in that has people who weren't raised with that much manners, for example. Sometimes when they speak they ignore you (Which is quite normal) but do it a little bit too much, and instead of saying excuse me, they just say move.

5 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806.

Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone... read more

Another mixed bag of outrageously rude people and some amazingly nice individuals. Often a scary place if they decide you are an outsider and therefore suspicious at the very least, or the target of verbal abuse or refusal of service in the worst cases. You can see how the pre-unified Germany states created so much beauty intellectually, and musically-speaking for the world. The actual, modern, German state? Not so much.

Germans are rude, unattractive, weird, blunt, and angry. They have an awful history and nobody likes their food. Berlin seems cool, but people are ass hats there, Maybe in rural areas they are nicer?

On a personal level, the rudest people I've met have been German or Vietnamese. It's a culture thing, they can be super blunt and direct but it comes across as really rude

6 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and borders 14 countries, the second most of any country in the world after Russia. Covering an area of approximately 9.6 million square kilometers (3,700,000 sq mi), it is the world's third or fourth... read more

I've spent since 1996 trying to understand Chinese. Lived around then dealt with tgem in Buisness. I've found them two faced back stabbing and sneaky. They would walk over the top of your child if they fell. They renig on deals and have little concern for life. Its sad as I've tried to make excuses for years for them but lately a Chinese association and its employees not only triwd to screw me over but failed. Very untidy outlook to sincerity. Would stab you in back at tge blink if an eye. Its sad. But over the last 20 years I've fpund the Chinese to bw nothing more than cruel opportunists with no regret or honourable intentions.

When I was little, me and my family would always go to this restaurant after taking the train. Whenever I had a sad look on my face, the waiters would cheer me up. Once, when the waiter served the food, he tapped my shoulder behind me and smiled while doing a silly face.
They would do anything to ensure their happiness of their costumers. I was very fortunate to not meet anyone rude, like what some comments say...

7 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 Juche leader Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung.

North Korea's population as of February 18th, 2017 is 25,360,273.

North Korea is the third most... read more

Honestly, North Korea has got to be the worst country ever, I mean, I feel bad for all the innocent people who were born there, and they have no internet, and only 4-3 TV channels, how are they surviving without something fun like SpongeBob SquarePants or Bluey? But Kim Jong Un is just a fat racist tyrant, he hates everyone except for Russian and Chinese people, the North Korean people have to suffer in this torturous nation, yet Kim gets to eat food from the USA or Japan and he went to school in Switzerland, frick you Kim Jong Un.

Who meets North Koreans? They are ignorant because all they know is North Korea, they are ignorant of other cultures but they can't really help it

These crazy, fat and ugly lechers are racist towards everyone but russi and china, yet Kim eats food from all over the world and went to school in Switzerland.

8 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), is a country on the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia. It has a land area of about 2,150,000 km2 (830,000 sq mi), making it the fifth-largest country in Asia, the second-largest in the Arab world, and the largest in Western Asia. It is bordered by the Red Sea to the west; Jordan, Iraq, and Kuwait to the north; the Persian Gulf, Qatar and... read more

I've worked here and they are really rude, Pervert and sex maniac. They are praying 5 times a day but after that they will still go back to their animal like attidue. This place is Not safe especially for women.

Ultraconservative Islamic country that treats non-Muslims, esp. Jews andd Christians horribly.

Not the best in soccer... but a pretty good country!

9 Russia Russia, or the Russian Federation (RF), is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world by area, covering over 17,125,191 square kilometres (6,612,073 sq mi), and encompassing one-eighth of Earth's inhabitable landmass. Russia extends across eleven time zones and borders sixteen sovereign nations, the most of any country in the world... read more

Whoever voted for this, I'm done. Do you guys know why russians don't smile on the streets? (this makes them appear so much more ruder and angrier than they are) its because in Russia, it's considered impolite to smile at strangers in public. I'm russian, so I know firsthand - there is even a saying: "smiling without a reason is a sign of foolishness". Like come on! It's part of russian culture, leave us alone. In reality, they are really fun people to hang around, and they aren't all drunk vodka alcoholics (though we do like our vodka very much). Russians are kind, honorable people, and anyone voting for this just because of their culture and not because of protesting really deserves a place behind the bars.

Russians are cold, blunt, aggressive, and conservative. They are brainwashed by their stupid government. They are also way too old fashioned

If there's one russian (lower cap!) with a brain, it is a miracle. Can't think for themselves, love to do as told and follow a scripted life. They are conditioned to it for too long, communism is part of that. Undecided, don't know what they want, too weak, alcoholic, needy, attention seekers that can do anything to get it, money seekers (especially women), women think they are the most beautiful in the world (because there are idiots that idolize them as little dogs) and try to use that to get attention, staring eyes and money (their ultimate goal), arrogant (typical element of inferiority complexity). What they really want is the attention of their parents.

10 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino, and Vatican City. The... read more

I'm Italian and don't listen to these idiots, Italians are not arrogant, they just have pride and confidence in themselves. When it comes to rudeness, it depends at the location. The south is full of short tempered and egotistic people, but the north is the complete opposite. Italians are not nasty and not demoralizing and they do not think they are best at everything, what the hell are these lunatics talking about. They're certainly not deranged, some people just need to explore and educate themselves more because most of these comments are completely false.

I met some rude police officers at passport control of Malpensa airport. One was very irritated and screaming at the foreigners to move fast. Very short temperd. I also had one who laughed at me when I submitted the document for consent of travel with small child. He looked young and less experienced so that he seemed like the face of having never seen those documents. I told him that I don't have time to cut it out, then he pointed his label of POLIZIA on his chest. What a Power harrasser!
He is the rudest and the most arrogant person that I have ever met.
I always see many of those who are "male educati" - especially men- in this country.

The Contenders
11 Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a country in the southern half of South America. Argentina covers an area of 2,780,400 km2 (1,073,500 sq mi), making it the second-largest country in South America after Brazil, the fourth-largest country in the Americas, and the eighth-largest country in the world. It shares the bulk of the Southern Cone with Chile to the west, and is also bordered... read more

Poor, lazy, and uncivilized drug addicts just like the rest of Latin America.

Argentinians are not rude they're very nice and intelligent someone remove it from the list.

They are kinder people than the people in Spain.

12 Qatar Qatar, officially the State of Qatar, is a sovereign country located in Southwest Asia, occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Don't come to this hell, please. You will regret it.

The flight attendants are kind, but the people living there? Nuh-uh.

Language is trash

13 Bulgaria Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, was established in 681 ad. and since then it never changed it's name, which makes it one of the oldest countries in Europe. Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, found long before founding of Bulgaria, it has a lot of historical places to visit. Major Cities... read more

I am Bulgarian, have traveled to many countries in Europe, have lived in 2 other West European countries. And let me tell you, nowhere have I been treated as rudely as in my precious home Bulgaria. Not even by xenophobic people in other countries who knew I was non-native. Whatever anyone has told me abroad is nothing compared to what some Bulgarians have said or done. God forbid you have to go to the hospital, dentist, police, tax, post office, or somewhere to get something done in Bulgaria.

Bulgarians might suck up to foreigners. Bulgarians might suck up to higher-ups or other Bulgarians with money who give them gifts or bribes. Bulgarians might even suck up to pretty hot guys or girls.

But things get fun if you are none of those things and can't 'gift' your way through something. Whenever another Bulgarian or person tries to disapprove claims Bulgarians are rude, he is most likely one of the above - foreign, rich, influential/person of someone, or extremely good looking. Not saying there aren't good Bulgarians, especially in the younger generations, but a lot of them aren't, and this is why so many Bulgarians want to immigrate, so they can be treated with normal human decency and respect.

14 Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

Strange country. It felt like a country caught in a time-warp, perhaps in another dimension. Awful food, made worse by thieving practices from waiters in restaurants. Unhealthy, over-weight population. Not a good recipe for niceties of any kind, and one sees it in their current neo-fascist politics.

Probably the most bipolar nation there is, always felt like I was treading on egg shells when in a restaurant in case any waiter or waitress snapped at me. Happened more than once, one time was because I asked to add a bottle of water to a meal, another time was that my friend ordered salmon, and instead of asking for two I asked for salmon also. Also never try to split a bill if you're out, it may be the last thing you do. Never witnessed so much dramatic people in my life.

Rudest and most stupid, delusion people. They speak a turkic language and come from East Asia, yet they think they are European!

15 Somalia Somalia, officially the Federal Republic of Somalia, is a country in the Horn of Africa. The country is bordered by Ethiopia to the west, Djibouti to the northwest, the Gulf of Aden to the north, the Indian Ocean to the east, and Kenya to the southwest. Somalia has the longest coastline on Africa's mainland. Its terrain consists mainly of plateaus, plains, and highlands. Hot conditions prevail year-round,... read more

Can't speak for the country, but without exception, every man I have met from this countrybor culture is abrupt, ruse and ahoet-tempered.

We are nice people. We are not enemy to anyone.

Mean rude if needed

16 Czech Republic The Czech Republic, also called Czechia is a landlocked country in Central Europe. Historically known as Bohemia, it is bordered by Austria to the south, Germany to the west, Poland to the northeast, and Slovakia to the southeast. The Czech Republic has a hilly landscape that covers an area of 78,871 square kilometers (30,452 sq mi) with a mostly temperate continental and oceanic climate. The capital... read more

I am Czech and most Czechs are selfish, ignorant and rude. It a remnant of socialistic culture, where everyone cared only about himself or closest family. Sure, there are many people who are nice and helpful, but every 4 years the selfishness crystalizes in parliamentary elections. Also Czechs like to cheat and have very low morale profile.

Well the Czech people are kind hearted and helpful. Prague is a wonderful capital city and there are lot of tourists from evrywhere around the world. My experience about the Czech republic is very positive, and I have some friends from the Czech repuplic also. I only can recommend this country to everybody!

I'm Czech, I love being helpful and all but no one ever repaid it to me, people here only care about their sake and always seem really annoyed by their jobs. I don't even enjoy going anywhere, especially in the main city.

17 Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a landlocked country in Southeastern and Central Europe, situated at the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain and the Balkans. It shares land borders with Hungary to the north, Romania to the northeast, Bulgaria to the southeast, North Macedonia to the south, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the west, and Montenegro to the southwest, and claiming a border... read more

Bro Serbs are jerks they literally in 1999went into Kosovo and started killing random Albanians for no reason same in Bosnia they are killers also they started WW1! Killing 22Million people they are barbarians they think their better then everyone and they ruin everything their so dum the only reason they had a empire was because of a Byzantine after he died their empire fell their so Dum! I hate serbs

I have positive memories from a journey to Serbia. People were kind, nice and hospitable. I can tell you just good words to Serbia and serbian people. I wish good luck in serbian and international football for Fc Crvena Zvezda.

These people are the rudest and think they are best at everything. I think they have a slight of inferiority complex actually.

18 Australia Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi), Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country. Australia is the oldest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent,... read more

I'm surprised its number 24. In my opinion it should be number 4 or 8. Extremly racist people. Your never welcomed here. I came to Australia since 2006 and I've been called Muslim and people always told me to go back to my country. The number of times I've seen people getting bullied and me getting bullied is mind blowing. Very sad to see a good country be filled with such rude people.

Australians are absolutely awful at driving, I live in this country and although I would still rather live here than America, white Australians are rude hypocrites.

I live here, but people can be rude if you're rude to them. Australia is a very welcome country and I have never met a racist person! But to be honest, this is pretty much the only country that you can call your friend a "cun*" without being rude, but personally, I think that's rude, but other than that, I love this country!

19 Yemen Yemen, officially the Republic of Yemen, is a country in Western Asia, on the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders Saudi Arabia to the north and Oman to the northeast and shares maritime borders with Eritrea, Djibouti, and Somalia. It is the second-largest Arab sovereign state in the peninsula, occupying 555,000 square kilometres (214,000 square miles). The coastline stretches for about... read more

Ranked #140 in the world giving index.

20 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. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip (Palestine) and Israel to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south, and Libya to the west. The Gulf of Aqaba in the northeast... read more

I have visited Egypt before including Cairo and other villages, they are extremely intolerant to Americans and also as a black man they are very racist. in a village called AL Minya, as a black man, they threw stones at me calling me a black person in Arabic. In Cairo, they stare at you like why you American is in my country.They are extreme nationalists.

Egyptian people are the rudest person I ever met in my entire life. They always think of themselves as high and mighty. They only deceiving people how good they are by praying every time but inside them is rotten heart and spirit.

I came across Egyptians during a work assignment and I'd say they certainly are short tempered and rude relative to any other people I've come across.

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 monolith outside the capital of Abuja that’s pictured on the national currency... read more

Majority of Nigerian women are very rude with nasty attitude. They are jealous of naturally beautiful and humble mixed, Asian, Middle Eastern and Eastern European women because Nigerian men who are decent choose them over fake hair goldigging Nigerian women.

I have only spoken to a few Nigerian and Kenyan women and men, and I am alarmed by the angry tone, nearly sarcastic, and almost dismissive nature of those brief conversations and encounters. When a simple "good morning" or "have a nice day" can cause a negative reaction or questionable argument, then of course it becomes offensive because the negative reaction is abnormal behavior, especially in the southern states of America. It's so ridiculous and unnecessary. Sadly, a growing number of southern Americans are developing an understanding of intolerance towards Nigerians and Kenyans because of these interactions.

22 Brunei Brunei, officially the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace, is a sovereign state located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. Apart from its coastline with the South China Sea, the country is completely surrounded by the Malaysian state of Sarawak. It is separated into two parts by the Sarawak district of Limbang. Brunei is the only sovereign state completely on the island... read more

They kicked many people out of shrines for doing nothing.

23 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It is situated 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

I have lived here for 12 years. Beautiful place - awful, awful people...the rudest ever with terrible manners, bad grammar, and terrible spelling. The South Island people are much nicer, but to be completely honest, the people are terrible. Workplace bullying is rife, along with something called "Tall Poppy Syndrome" - (look that one up) other words, if they are envious of you, they chop your head off. An incredibly Passive Aggressive society. Horrible people.

Bro, kiwis are super rude. School and workplace bullying is rife, along with something called "Tall Poppy Syndrome" - (look that one up) other words, if they are envious of you, they chop your head off.

Kiwis are very rude. They grow horns out of their forehead when you ask them about the weather. They cannot resist rugby with potatos and pepper sauce. And they call everyone idiots. People called Rose and Sophie are particularly rude, and will never stop critizing other people.

24 Kosovo Kosovo, officially the Republic of Kosovo, is a partially recognised state in Southeastern Europe. It lies at the centre of the Balkans, occupying an area of 10,887 km2 (4,203 sq mi), with a population of 1.8 million; and is bordered by the uncontested territory of Serbia to the north and east, North Macedonia to the southeast, Albania to the southwest, and Montenegro to the west. Kosovo unilaterally... read more

I know a man from Kosovo that lives in North America. He told me he doesn't trust women, or believe them. And he cheats on all of his girlfriends. He has a few of them at a time. And he hates Serbs.

Why isn't this in the top ten. I live in kosovo, and everyone there is so mean, like once I walked around the supermarket and the casheir was so rude to my mom,however the kids at school are nice, I think its just the adults that are mean

I just got back from my trip to the Balkans and most of the people in these countries where super kind but when I went to Kosovo they where worse then the French they think that if you have the money to go there your just there to shove it in there face that you have money!

25 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.

Iran is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The country's rich cultural legacy is reflected... read more

Born there, lived there and yet felt the discrimination. Iranians are actors, bad ones, carrying a permanent mask on their faces. acting nice and welcoming to strangers, especially foreigners to convince you they are the warmest and friendliest people. But in reality, they are only planning to take something from you, most of them are extremely Irresponsible hypocrites that believe they are the best and nicest people on earth while envying every other nation deeply. and they are always right, saying 'sorry' doesn't exist in Iranian culture, let alone a sincere apology and acknowledgment of a mistake or toxic behavior. Women are on par with men in being rude, everyone is sexist and racist. constantly saying bad things about Arabs while most of them actually genetically have Arabian, Turkic, and Mongolian blood. The groups they mock and curse all the time. so to speak, they hate their own inner existence. no wonder how hateful and empty an average Iranian is.
