Top 10 Most Terrifying Civilizations

The Top Ten
1 Nazi Germany

I can just imagine the poor Jews and other people that the Nazi's targeted living in and near Germany at this time. I'm really glad I was born after they surrendered.

It would be scary if the Nazis were after you. Hiding in horror as cities burned and got bombed. Soldiers killing the Jews. Imagine what Anne Frank went through.

DUH. The holocaust was terrible. While rest of Europe was flourishing, it was drenched in war.

2 Soviet Union

The soviet union killed millions over a span of time as well as keeping every citizen I complete and constant fear. More and worse than Nazi Germany.

Well in Soviet Russia, toilet flushes you! Well what do the Nazis have to say about that?

Only if you are American and/or conservative...

3 Roman Empire The Roman Empire was a post-Republican period of ancient Rome that lasted from 27 BC to 476 AD. It was characterized by an autocratic form of government and large territorial holdings in Europe, North Africa, and parts of Asia. The Roman legal system and Latin language have had a lasting impact on the Western world. At its height, the empire was one of the most powerful economic, cultural, and military... read more

They sent thousands of men and animals to die in the colosseum and many other amphitheatres around the Roman Empire to just entertain the common people. They destroyed entire empire (such as the Carthaginian empire) that opposed them. The Empire's expansion was almost unstoppable. The Emperors could kill thousands of their own citizens by asking for it. Being an enemy of this Empire meant certain death, for them it was a question of how brutally they wanted you to die. Before the invention of gunpowder the weapon that killed the most people in history was the Roman gladius. No one could stop them, they were hardly ever merciful. The Roman Empire is without a doubt the most terrifying.

Americans must be the only people in the world voting on this, because soviet Russia didn't even do anything, Americans just "think" that Russia was going to nuke them, the roma empire did terrible things to people, not even the Nazis were as bad as the roman empire E. g salting the ground at carthage so that nothing could grow there again. Just because something happens in recent history doesn't make it the most terrifying civilisation.

4 Aztec Empire

One of the fastest falling empires ever. They lost everything because of their terrible works.

5 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang.

6 Mongol Empire

Responsible for killing off poor Asian peoples.

There like Nazi Germany before Nazi germany.

Estimates from 30 million to 60 million dead (>15% of the world killed - WWII killed only 2%), with bowmen on horses with conquests starting in 1207 and ending in 1472, won't you be terrified?

7 Viking Empire

They scared the crap out of people where they planned to invade. I also read that they were taller than most other civilians of that time.

12 Ottoman Empire
13 Hunnic Empire
14 Celtic Empire

They even murdered their own people! The Celtic kings would put the poor, ill or needy people in-front of their enemy's and their castle on a hill far away so when they see smoke they know the village gas been attacked so they could run away abandoning the people that need help. They would chop off your head and put it on spicks for all to see, like a trophy and would execute them publicly for all to see including family (as in seeing them dye or being execute too just to prove a point and show power) it was sick back then!

15 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.

16 Maori Civilization

Maori were one of the most powerful ancient civilizations this world has ever witnessed, and still remain that powerful force even to this day. They still remain the only undefeated race, defeating every country and race it has come up against.

17 Kingdom of Israel
18 Assyrian Empire

The torture, methods of war and even how they advanced is enough to put the Assyrians in the top 10.

Torturing methods were scary as hell!
