Worst Countries

The Top Ten
1 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... read more

People who voted for the United States over North Korea must be insane. In the United States you're free to practice your religious beliefs without worry of being murdered because the government decided to ignore human rights and outlaw the ability to follow it. In the United States you can preach about how your leader is terrible if that's your opinion without being thrown into jail, executed, or facing punishment. In the United States you don't have to avoid displaying any affection for your lover in public.

The fact of it is that in North Korea you do have to worry about the things listed above. North Korea oppresses, indoctrinates, and strips away the rights of its people. It's one of the worst places in the world and anybody who would speak about how places like India, America, or almost anywhere in the world are worse clearly need to reevaluate their history or their sense of morality.

2 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... read more

Genuinely the worst place on Earth that I have ever had the displeasure of living in (for the past year).

To all who talk about women rights, shut up about it, it goes far beyond that. It's a place full of iignorant morons with the worst spirits and screwed mentalities.

It's not religion that makes these morons the way they R. Islam actually teaches that it is your character that counts, and teaches patience, tolerance, cleanliness, and much more good. It is just unfortunate that people judge the religion by these idiots who are so very far from it.

Saudi Arabia isn't following Islam, because if it did, it wouldn't be the filthy place that it is with its people who have possibly the ugliest manners on the planet.

Shame on you, you are a disgrace to Islam and the Arab world.

3 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... read more

Do not give financial aid to Somalia, only more HIV/AIDs.

Otherwise all of Africa will suck. Somalia starts out poor and vulnerable, but once they get aid, they will become sub-human, vile, devilish, self-hating, lying, religious/race baiting, sexist, racist pigs, scattering their refugees around the globe.

They would hinder Rwanda's progress in turning into the Singapore of Africa, and converting every prosperous country into a horrible, divided third world country plagued with corruption, poverty, crime and danger.

This nation deserves to collapse, get wrecked by a system of their own corrupt useless, get killed by BOKO HARAM, and every negative thing. This is because they are the real devils of the world.

4 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a Western Asian country located in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Levant. It is a unitary republic that consists of 14 governorates (subdivisions), and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Turkey to the north, Iraq to the east and southeast,... read more

You put the US, Italy, and South Korea above Syria. Some people need to stop hating countries because of history when they vote on this list. Syria is in a civil war right now, was tied for the least democratic country in the world, and its citizens are being massacred by their government. If you believe that this sounds better than the US, Italy, or South Korea, you need to read the news and learn what human rights are.

I heard that before the civil war, it used to be a beautiful country. Now it's incredibly dangerous and a war torn mess. It is actually listed as THE most dangerous and unlivable country in the world.

5 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... read more

The government of China is greedy and heartless. It loves to antagonize its neighbors. China doesn't care if people go hungry both in and outside the country. It is insensitive to the situations of its neighbors just so that it can get its hands on some islands and territories that aren't theirs. Its territorial claims are ridiculous and I suggest that they shove it up their communist asses.

Their government keeps all of their money to get themselves, so the citizens lack actual resources and they overcrowd. So they eat crap like bats, dogs, cats, and spiders etc. It is disgusting. And the government let it spread so it can attack America and it's economy.

6 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located at the crossroads of Central and South Asia. Referred to as the Heart of Asia, it is bordered by Pakistan to the east and south, Iran to the west, Turkmenistan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north, Tajikistan... read more

Afghanistan has been really bad since Russia invaded and tried to take over in 1979. Russia wouldn't stop until they left in 1989, and when they did leave, Afghanistan was pretty much a disaster area because of the 10 years of war, which wasn't fair to Afghanistan in the first place. After that, it became really corrupt and governments kept on changing all the time and one wouldn't last for at least 10 years. And then the Taliban came around and controlled almost all of the land by 1996. The Taliban made a ton of strict laws and mistreated women so much it's heartbreaking. And they also allowed terrorists to stay there until the USA invaded in 2001. Ever since then terrorists are still running around out there and innocent people are at high risk for something bad happening to them every day. It is also one of the poorest countries in Asia. I just feel really bad for all of the innocent people there because they don't deserve any of the bad things that are going on over there.

7 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... read more

I live in the United States and it is hell. Citizens are idiots and lawmakers are idiots. We let ISIS happen. We make the stupidest deals in history with other countries. All of our food is artificial. Introverts are discriminated like Jews in Nazi Germany. People are abnormally greedy. Exposure to so many chemicals (pretty much our food) leads to endless disease and disability. Our allies no longer trust us. Our enemies no longer fear us. The American Dream is a complete myth. This country SUCKS.

I have absolutely no patriotism for this hellhole. If I can ever get out of here, I will. (Maybe even first illegal immigrant from US to Mexico if I have to). Then I will just watch as failed politicians give nuclear weapons to the terrorists...

8 Eritrea Eritrea officially the State of Eritrea, is a country in East Africa. With its capital at Asmara, it is bordered by Sudan in the west, Ethiopia in the south, and Djibouti in the southeast.

How is this all the way down here! This country is a horrifying impoverished nationalist totalitarian nation. Sounds exactly like North Korea, only newer! Unlike North Korea, they don't have any powerful enemies, allowing them to get away with more than they can! Ever wonder why people think all of Africa is really bad? It's because of this country! The most repressive country in the world!

Living in Eritrea is a nightmare. It's like North Korea, but it's safer, still dangerous, but safer to live than North Korea!

Eritrea is amazing

9 Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia.

Iraq is currently led by President Fuad Masum and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. It is currently ranked 160th in the Institute for Economics & Peace's Global Peace Index, making it one of the most dangerous countries in the... read more

You cannot define a country "worse" other than the state it is in, like geopolitical situations, livelihood, government and it being a stable government and economy. Do you mean living standards in that country? Iraq is a country that has a collapsed military every time a new war occurs. U.S. intervention, Saddam's army collapsed, the wars following on, constant collapse. I don't deem this country WORST, but it does not have a good history in governance and it is in a very bad shape among influences from regional powers. Literally, look at the Kurdistan Autonomous Region, the Iraqi Army had to run away from their posts and FAILED in protecting the civilians, and the Peshmerga (Kurdish Army of the autonomous region) retook their historic city Kirkuk, following other cities they took in dispute. They even aided the civilians and made the cities more stable than ever before. YET, the Iraqi government necessitated on regional powers (Proxy militaries, and foriegn powers like Turkey and Iran). Shows how unstable a country can become even when retaking territories from the Kurdish autonomous region and WANTING to repeat history! Do we want ISIS and other terrorist to take advantage of this!? Of course, they necessitate change!

10 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

The best country in this part of Europe. But someone put bad words in media about Serbia. If they don't like Serbia and Serbs why they do visit most famous music festivals in Serbia? Most of people missjudged Serbia as a savage people which they aren't.

Very genocidal people and cold hearted. Many innocent people have suffered at the hands of the Serbs, and the worst part of it all is they deny what they've done.

Sad faces, sad cities, arrogant, primitive and bad tempered, poor and mean.

The Contenders
11 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... read more

They force everyone to respect theocratic laws. As a result of their extreme beliefs, the government kills gays just for loving who they want.

You guys are generally khuni and koskesh. Very fake and insecure people. Mostly cowards and double-crossers. Love to gossip and backstab others. Very racist also. Admit it.

The country will give you the death penalty if you are homosexual, along with banning dog-walking.

12 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... read more

The government is lead by "President" Putin, a dictator. They occupied Crimea and the eastern parts of Ukraine (through separatists, who are funded and trained by Russian military) in 2014 for no justifiable reason, which is against international law, they suppress freedom of speech and opposition to Putin, like that Navalny guy, yet allow literal fascists to operate within the country without being classified as extremists. And they have the audacity to generalize Ukraine, a nation with 41 million people, as a bunch of fascists and Nazis. Putin should take a good look at himself in the mirror, and reflect on all the harm he has done to millions not only internally within Russia, but in Ukraine and Georgia (I'm referring to the 2008 war)

13 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are... read more

Actually this is wrong. I have immense respect for pakistan because of their hospitality and I feel the army is the backbone of Pakistan, imagine how much they do for the safety of their country if they can treat an indian pilot out to attack with so much respect they escort him to the Indian border and out of the worlds many armies, Pakistan isn't any less deserving of respect. Salute

I wouldn't leave it for the world. The respect I get here, the beauty of my city,the kindness of the citizens... there irreplaceable. No I'm not joking. And you must be joking if you're voting on this list based on whatever biased news reports you hear in your country.
Yes, the government is awful, but more and more people are fighting against the terrorism,corruption and sexism everyday. More people and getting educated. We're still a developing country and it'll take time to stabilize.

14 South Sudan South Sudan, officially the Republic of South Sudan, is a landlocked country in northeastern Africa that gained its independence from Sudan in 2011. Its current capital is Juba, which is also its largest city. It is bordered to the east by Ethiopia, to the north by Sudan, to the west by the Central African Republic, to the southwest by Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the south by Uganda and to the southeast by Kenya.

Stop giving aid to South Sudan. Period.

Otherwise they will breed more poor people. They start off as being helpless and vulnerable. But once they get aid, they will grow up to be sub-human, materialistic, race/religious baiting, lying, sexist pigs (and closet racists).

They will turn any prosperous country into a uncivilized, and divided third world country plagued with poverty, crime, and corruption.

To quote sam'o nella academy on YouTube, "If I had the choice of moving to south sudan or living the rest of my life with my dick stuck in an ant hill, I'd be slathering on the honey before you had the chance to finish."

Sudan is living hell! too many wars happening and overall its just not a safe country to visit

When they became independent a civil war started and now is a terrible country destroyed like syria

15 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... read more

Horrible, ugly, frightful, atrocious, horrific, hideous, dreadful, gruesome, ghastly, grisly, nasty, lurid are Italy and Italians.

We will never return there except to make business, because they always believe they are the king of everything and that Italy is the most powerful and beautiful country in the world, which is objectively absolutely not.

It's kind of disaster, cities and beaches full of rubbish, no accommodations on highway etc...
Road infrastructures look like 60 years ago.
Always same kind of restaurants and food and far to be good.
And Italians are extremely rude and have really bad manners.

But there is 1 thing nice: returning back home.

16 Central African Republic The Central African Republic is a landlocked country in Central Africa. It is bordered by Chad to the north, Sudan to the northeast, South Sudan to the southeast, the DR Congo to the south, the Republic of the Congo to the southwest, and Cameroon to the west. The CAR covers a land area of about 620,000 square kilometres (240,000 sq mi). As of 2018, it had an estimated population of around 4.7 million. As of 2021, the CAR is the scene of a civil war, ongoing since 2012

This whole country has been plagued with war and instability. Since it achieved self government and independence, half of it's political leaders have taken control of the country by force. One president had to subdue two uprising attempts during his term, and the third one succeeded. Even right now there is a brutal civil war between the Seleka, anti-balaka, and the government. When will the violence end.

Wars. Wars everywhere in this country

The poorest country in the world.

17 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... read more

When the Indian government or army is behind something they blame Pakistan which is nuts. They murdered a man on CANADIAN SOIL and Indians have the cheek to blame another country for it, got a reputation to hold or something? Because sure doesn't seem you like to have a clean reputation. Going to the moon doesn't count if on earth you're killing. Oh, apparently Indias a democracy too... 😂

I hate how Indians are so exaggerated about Pakistan becoming an independent country, as if India didn't go through the same! Cough cough...British empire. They're so evil about Pakistan and can't live and let live. Its simply not okay just because Indians appreciate Coke Studio, that doesn't mean Indians by large are respectful to their neighbours. Pakistan deserved to be created. Its not like Pakistanis were migrated from Europe and suddenly took over the land like the Jews did to Palestine

18 Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in Western Asia. It is situated on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea, and shares borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan to the east, and Egypt to the southwest; it is also... read more

Jews who believe they are superior than gentiles, and then people wonder why they are killing palestinians, the whole judaism in israel is riddled with rabbies saying how a jew is better than a non jew and how jews should marry jews, that god gave them the land and that they don't want non jews in their country, but if you tell people that you get conservatives and evangelical christians whining.

Don't believe about jews believing themselves to be superior and the people chosen by god? Go check street interviews with english subtitles, because they don't even hide it.

19 Sudan Sudan, officially the Republic of the Sudan, is a country in Northeast Africa. It shares borders with the Central African Republic to the southwest, Chad to the west, Egypt to the north, Eritrea to the northeast, Ethiopia to the southeast, Libya to the northwest, South Sudan to the south and the Red... read more

Stop giving aid to Sudan. Period.

Otherwise they will breed more poor people. They start off as being helpless and vulnerable. But once they get aid, they will grow up to be sub-human, materialistic, race/religious baiting, lying, sexist pigs.

They will turn any prosperous country into a uncivilized, and divided third world country plagued with poverty, crime, and corruption.

>Idiotic government

>Fascist Islamic regime

>Extremely ugly war history

>This country could care less about wanting to develop, de advancement is the way to go!

20 Democratic Republic of the Congo The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo, DRC, DROC, Congo-Kinshasa, or simply the Congo is a country located in Central Africa.

Stop giving aid to Congo. Period.

Otherwise they will breed more poor people. They start off as being helpless and vulnerable. But once they get aid, they will grow up to be sub-human, materialistic, race/religious baiting, lying, sexist pigs.

They will turn any prosperous country into a uncivilized, and divided third world country plagued with poverty, crime, and corruption.

The citizens of Congo are killing everyone!

There is a civil war that is starving and killing everyone there

21 Zimbabwe Zimbabwe, officially the Republic of Zimbabwe, is a landlocked sovereign state located in southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers.

1. Zimbawbe is a nice place. Although, with that ruler, I guess it isn't exactly paradise.

2. On this page people are being so racist. I come from Australia and no, they're is no racism on Australia here. Now, I do think Australia is the best country but that is for an obvious reason. I come from there, and everyone has a right to their opinion. But they DON'T have the right to write or speak racist comments. Especially, when you're not even giving us a reason why you're being a racist:

Stupid ascents, stupid places, stupid everything I have a american guy in my class (stupid)

"Americans think they are the best, but they are not.
I hope they will be nuked from North Korea.

"Hurricanes, Tornadoes and terrible crimes

Ok I'm fine with the last one but the first 2 ones? Let's start with the first one. Whoever wrote that you are a racist and a beep. Is it the kid's fault he's american. Is they're any problem with it? NO! Stupid accents? 1 I love they're accents and 2 let's here YOUR ACCENT HUH? I bet you sound like a freak of nature and I really hope so.

It's obvious why people are starting to say stupid places, accents and stupid everything. The second comment's writer is an idiot. They obviously don't know that Americans are proud and are very patriotic. USA is a paradise and just because people living in disadvantaged countries they're starting to take out America. By the way do YOU HAVE NYC SAN FRAN LA MIAMI YOSEMITE YELLOWSTONE CALIFORNIA FLORIDA OR INCREDIBLY CHEAP BREAKFAST? (I got four pancakes with ice cream at someplace for 50c. It's easy living and it's paradise.

22 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, ...read more.

Remove this From the list NOW. I am from here and whoever decided to put it in this list is a huge joke, ever heard of our mountains and beaches? Then Visit Bulgaria for a responsible lesson

In my opinion Bulgaria is not the worst country. They suffering from corruption and economical problems also the coming crowd of raiders/"refugees". During the soviet era communism made damage everywhere too.
Bulgaria has beauthiful natural sources like the Black Sea and among the Balkan countries Bulgaria is unique and wonderful (at least for me) that is why bulgarian people should be proud for their country.

The blind patriotism, homophobia, xenophobia and overall racism in this country is appalling. The Bulgarian people have become so infatuated with their past that they've become proud of the backward narrative that they're pushing out onto their nation. Would be in the top 3 if it were up to me.

The people of Bulgaria are some of the most ignorant, self-absorbed and trashy creatures you'd ever have the displeasure of meeting. As a Bulgarian, I'm ashamed to be put in the same category as people who are the human embodiment of literal TRASH.

23 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

The civil war here is worse than Syria - although there are only two sides, America is fighting on both of them.

Yemen cuts off peoples penis if your gay like Iran and Somalia

24 Slovakia

Considering that there are backward European hellholes such as Moldova (who's better of being an Romanian province) and Albania, Slovakia is miles better than these two and yet my country is in 20 on the list.

Has so many problems now with migrants, doesn't want to accept them.

Neighbor also does not change anything.

Worst places on earth

25 Palestine Palestine (State of Palestine, is a de jure sovereign state in Western Asia. It is officially governed by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and claims the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. However, its claimed territory has been occupied by Israel since the Six-Day War of 1967; the West Bank is... read more

Boycott Israel? How about Boycott Palestine?! This so called country is the complete anarchy. They always refuse to accept the truth and always say every lie for turning everyone against israel. Why do you feel bad about these palestinian being attacked by Israel although not only they attacked israel first and turkey did worse to armenia with the genocide and no one cared about them?!

They keep lying to everyone just for "getting their land back" while this nation was created after Israel. Refusing to accept every offer with Israel to share some territories, they keep using the quran for keeping saying their religion must not be changed to these lands, showing how egoist they are.
