Worst Countries to Live In

The Top Ten

1 North Korea 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 dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

I have a courage to shoot that jung il and go to heaven. the poor, starving citizens did nothing wrong. its their leader's problem

Yes, unquestionably and without a doubt, North Korea is the absolute worst country on this earth.I.. I don't even know where to start; oh yah, the leadership. The North Korean Kim dynasty is a chain of brutal, tyrannical, belligerent, barbaric, idiotic, imbecilic fools who clearly care nothing for they're people and only about themselves, money, sex and nuclear missiles. The North Korean economy is a disaster, and would be nonexistent if not for they're illegal exports of fake Viagra, heroine, sexual slavery and weapons, which are present throughout other dictatorships around the world. They basically force young "volunteers" to go work unpaid in mines and other industries in third world dictatorships, as a corrupt method of getting other countries to to they're good side. Kim Jong Un and his thugs own like 99.9% of the wealth while his people starve. Almost the entire population of the country are hordes up into collectivized farms and or prison camps while those 100 or so ...more

Probably one of the worst prison systems in the world, if not THE worst of all. Oh, I'm not talking about the country itself (North Korea alone could be considered as a prison) but it's home to the worst concentration camps in history since the Nazi Death Camps went out of commission. Not to mention one million people starve to death every year in North Korea. If you ever visit North Korea one day, make sure you won't wake up in the morning thinking you died and went to hell, you're still in North Korea. That's probably the best word to describe that cesspit; Hell.

I am feeling like killing kim jong un
And he looks very ugly

2 Somalia Somalia

This is why anarchy is stupid. 4 million have died since it lost its government.

Famine, Anarchy, Homeless, Islam. None of these work and putting them together just makes it worse.

Somalia became the worst country since the 1990 of the war. Now, it's pirate invested. If they are Islamic, then why are they killing innocent people? That's my question. I can't believe that some of my relatives are from this excuse for a country. Now, my uncle is threatening me to speak Somali, while I'm good at Arabic and English. 'enough said.

Which country has no government and has anarchy? This one. - 50

3 Afghanistan Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

1 - Why is Australia on here?
2 - Afghanistan sucks completely. I pity those who live there

I agree Australia shouldn't be here on the list ranked top 10 or 20 but Afghanistan my birth country SHOULD NOT BE 2nd what's wrong with people? I completely disagree and in my opinion Afghanistan should be 4th or 5th because Syria and Iraq should be replacing the rank. Afghanistan does not suck, don't accuse the country, accuse the Taliban ;-; - AussieAfghanRules

I don't wont to be unkind about someone else's mind and ideals but how is Australia even on this list. You wont see snakes in major cities or normal towns. In the country side just stay on the foot path. You can out run a snake.

But as idi admin said: you can't outrun a bullet:. And there's a lot of bullets flying out guns along with land mines in Afghanistan along with religious extremists. And religion has caused more war than anything else.

I live in Australia and I love it. You wont hear an afghan say that.

Very underestimated country. Not the best... But not the worst by all means. I would put it #11 on this list. (and I am an American)The worst is Uganda. The LRA are not soldiers... There murderers

Yes, it is a bad country. It has war and shootings especially kabul!

4 Syria Syria

Totally with that war going on in there how can the people stand it?

Why is it not at the top?!

Syria is in the middle of a war would you really prefer to live in Syria rather than India. Also Syria is in an economic recession. People were chemically bombed a few days ago!

Syria was better under Bashar al-Assad than ISIS. But now thanks to the Western intervention into Syria (led by the United States), the country is now a failed state and its migrants will flood into Europe. From there they will create the Islamic State of European Nations.

This place is so dangerous. Once you go in you will never come out! Do not go to this country because of the big war happening their. Go to number one on the list you rotten country full of these crazy people!

We are still in war there it never stops they need to make some friends other than themselves

Of course! But don't forget to add Indonesia to the list. It's horrible, guys. Damn. Horrible. Pollution is what we should call it.

I am a Pakistani, and this is the first time I've been here. I came here seven months ago and honestly everyday I just want to kill myself. It's 46 degrees in Lahore the electricity goes out nearly 12 hours a day. The people are unlettered, bigoted and ill-mannered and have the mentality of probably the 18th century. Extremely belligerent. The news is unbearable, people dying everywhere in blasts, killing, beatings, burnings. And don't even get me started on the religious extremism. THIS COUNTRY IS HELL ON EARTH!

Damn this is my country but it is one of the worst places to live!

Pakistan Taliban school attack kills 141, including 132 children - as it happened (The Guardian, 16 Dec 2014): 'Taliban sought no terms, began shooting immediately'.

Even in Main Cities Like Karachi on an average 10 people die

People die everywhere everyday idiot stop blaming it on Pakistan - shahnoorrox

I think Pakistan should in the top 10 not worst top ten

7 Sudan Sudan

Well, I live in Sudan... I don't want to say it is the worst place in the world, because I believe it is relevant and to be frank I didn't live anywhere else to compare, but Sudan falling economy, wars, corrupted government and race issue for sure are not positive thing, the people lost their sense of mortality with semi civilized cities for those who didn't lose it for war in Darfur and the South. Yet, knowing that Sudan is a huge country living is not the same across the country. For example those who live in Darfur are as far from the center as for people living in other countries you feel the heat of war through news and refuges. Doesn't mean living in big cities is that great either. Family and friends which used to be the main value behind living in the country now disappeared with most people seeking better income in Gulf, EU or USA. Now I have more friends in any city in Saudi Arabia than in Sudan.

I don't believe that a person would be happier changing where they live ...more

How is Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and China above Sudan? Read my lips. GE-NO-CIDE! - lassidoggy

Among the current Top 10, Somalia and North Korea are rather accurate choices. Middle Eastern countries are NOT inherently bad because they are middle eastern, many people actually enjoy living there. If I remember correctly, it were the Europeans who were adamant about leaving their countries and immigrating, (especially to USA).

Sudan sucks!

Yemen is the worst country in there world. Only men should go to Yemen because they stone and hide all the women. It is the second worst country in the world for women. Al Quada also is very prevalent in this hell-hole of a country.

The actual problem in Yemen is nothing like you described. It is being used as a battlefield for other neighbouring nations in war. - styLIShT

This is how all countries in the Arabian Peninsula would look like if they had no oil.

This country should be higher than Australia and China. All Muslim countries should be above Australia and China! Why you may ask? Because the religion of Islam is terrible to women! Women can't get educated and have to dress head to toe in black in the heat!

Has an extreme cholera epidemic right now.

12 Central African Republic Central African Republic

Lots of the people on here have no idea what they are talking about. Australia? Really? It has a very untouched eco-system and is beautiful with little violence. I live in Africa. The CAR is a very bad place, but it doesn't deserve to be nuked. The poverty can be stopped. So people who sit on their butts in America living in the "hood," come see what real violence is like.

Not the whole Africa is poor, only some parts of it. Some African countries are nice

Central African Republic already has problems with water and malaria disease, and the fact that it is basically halfway in the Sahara Desert, it is very bad.

13 Burma Burma

Maybe it shouldn't be on the top, but it should be in like the top 5. My parents were born there, but I was born in the U.S. People in this stupid country give so much respect to white people (I'm not being racist). I mean you can't even cross the road in this country if your not white. And the traffic is just horrible. It 's caused by stupid impatient bus and taxi drivers. I couldn't eat outside food because I always got food poisoning. And the worst thing is the way they treat Muslims. My Muslim friend was a soccer coach at an international school. One day one of the parents came to enroll her child at the soccer training and she asked whether he was Muslim or Christian. He said that religion doesn't have anything to do with football. Then she said that she was just asking, so he admitted he was Muslim. The next day the coach asked the kids to bring some balls from home. That woman's kid lost his ball at training and she blamed the coach and called him a Muslim criminal. After that ...more

I came back from Australia for 5 years and when I came back, lots of things has changed but not enough change. Australia I had so much fun there the memories, my friends, good holiday destination. But just when I went back to Burma, oh man it was hard getting a school it was just insane because I can speak Burmese but my parents think I won't be able to do well in public schools. Beside, back in 2009 public schools were strict like teacher were beating the out of kids if they don't listen well and do good. I got hit too, but that's changed after 2014 or 13. The good side is I got to meet my cousins again and old friends and they have kind service most of them man powered and they are happy to do their job. More bad side is importantly the political side. Yes the political side is really crap at their job. Studies shows that Burma only visits the UN rarely, I was like what the hell, Burmese government are so antisocial plus they never helped enough for the people in the 2008 Cyclone ...more

Beautiful country untouched by development the people are really nice and welcoming. The government lets them down

14 India 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.

HOW DID India GET IN HERE?

All those of who are Indians and think India is the worst, Has anyone of you done anything to make it better? But you have definitely made your nation earn a bad name by posting such stuff.

I am natural (born and raised) citizen of India. The current condition of the nation is due to its so called varied diversity in population.

Every other person in India wants put blame on an politician/government for its issues like corruption, poverty, lack-of-quality in education etc. , but no one wants to elect a right candidate nor they are interested in having the election policies changed.

Most of the population is literally unproductive to ever-developing nation. There is no one who wants to talk about reducing the population (there by getting 80% of the issues resolved) but many speak of changing constitution.

It has become an dead-easy game for politicians to classify citizens by Religion and exploit Caste System (which 90% of the world's population doesn't understand).

Despite an lead in IT, but & many other sectors, hardly 3% of population pays income tax and rest-of-so-called-citizens expect politicians and government to respond to just about ...more

Population isn't that big of a deal. Netherlands, Bangladesh and Japan have a higher per capita population density. India's actually a pretty good place to live if you have money. I've lived in Los Angeles for many years, so I know how the west looks. I've been back in Chennai for over 5 years and I kind of like it here as well. Sure, I miss a bunch of things, but if you have an inverter in your house, you can deal with the rare power cut. Plus labour is so cheap here, it's actually awesome how you can live like a king with some money. Also, places like Thailand are a couple of hours away. Living like an average Indian would probably suck, well my family used to live here many years back and it was still pretty good. I guess a lot of negative people comment in these threads. Maybe they're talking about "north India" - I agree that it's bad compared to the south. - arviman

If you want to experience all sorts of pollution then well, this is the country. Air pollution, noise pollution, water pollution, land pollution, etc. The list is endless. People and animals defecate on the roads. You can find stray animals almost everywhere, even in the 'developed' cities. People are rude and ignorant. The level of hypocrisy the people in India possess are way above the charts. People spitting and littering everywhere can be found here. The level of illiteracy is high and people consider their religion way above humanity. There's absolutely no sense of social politeness and there are constant disputes among people everywhere. People pass comments on everyone passing by and of course, rude and sexist comments are also passed against women. Modernisation is so not a thing in India and people are way backward except a few, of course. The standard of living is so low in India that even basic amenities like a car is considered a luxury. A luxury in lieu of which heavy ...more

But Iran is rich and one of the safest counter in medial east

I am from Iran and I should tell to those who say that Iran is a bad place for living that please don't say anything when you don't know about something. you hear in news that Iranian are terrorist or they support terrorism in Middle East. you hear that Iran is not safe but that is not correct. you think that because Iranian are Muslim they are arab but that is not correct.we are Persian and we have a rich culture. we have a long history and great empires like Achaemenid and sasanian and the greatest kings like Cyrus the great. our people are very kind and hospitable. Iran has a lot of old and beautiful places you should visit once in your life. so don't make a hasty judgment and learn more about Iran and Islam.

It's true that Iran is not the best but it isn't worse than China!

16 Bangladesh Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

I am Bangladeshi born but brought up in Kuwait from early age and now live in U.K.

In contrast to middle eastern and western life which I have experienced; I can honestly say that yes Bangladesh sucks!. It is not the land which is green and lush but the people themselves. Most of the Bengalis are the stupidest of the stupid and full of greed then any other civilized people I have met. Thieves and muggers are every where.

My mother (who leaves in Bangladesh now after leaving Kuwait in 1992) along with my sister and brother in-law almost got killed in an armed robbery in our house last year. The armed robbers forced their way into steel gates and toughened doors at night and stole every thing at gun point (gold, cash, computers, mobile phones) with in 15 minutes of terror. Our house is in the middle of commercial area with surrounding populated residency. When my brother in-law cried for help at night, no one came forward to help nor even called the police via their ...more

Been to Bangladesh multiple times. I have been to over 50 countries including Somalia, Swaziland, Eritrea, and Zimbabwe. Bangladesh easily takes the cake as the most corrupt, inefficient, misogynist country I have ever been to. For every dollar you spend I feel like 90 cents go to graft in some way shape or form. Strikes all the time that render it impossible to travel anywhere. Crippled transport networks that sees 100 KM trips turn into protracted 8 hour nightmares. The most obscene and insulting 'democracy' I have ever seen - a protracted catfight between two entirely irrelevant harpies and their equally disdainful families who could not give a hoot about anybody else but themselves and their petty problems. Bizarre internecine violence. Acid throwing. Child marriage. Constant diarrhea from eating with unwashed hands. I went three times, got scabies every time despite never touching an animal. Without a doubt the most disgusting repression of women anywhere - it is worse systemic ...more

I live in Bangladesh and I can say that this is the one worst countries in the world to live in, and the people of this country are the biggest hypocrites in the whole world. Whenever you talk to a people he will try to make you realize that he is better than you in some aspect of life, and again this country is severely poor with no natural resources, Bangladesh have to take loan from other countries or world bank for any high cost project. There is also no geographical diversity in this country, if you come in this country and travel a random place you will see drains filled with waste, waste on road, on road etc. And more on this country claims itself to be filled with greenery but it has less than 17% of forest floor which is one of the lowest in the sub continent.

Yes, the Chinese government does have multiple flaws. Yes, the government is corrupt. But some of the comments here are so rude and offensive, and it's upsetting to read something that generalizes a group of people. First of all, I bet that half of these people here haven't been to China before. You really can't judge something until you've learned about it, visited it, gotten diverse views on it, or etc. Also, I'd just like to point out that the women's rights in China are much better than the United States's. There's also no "baby killing" policy. Yes, there's a strict One Child policy but there have been some reforms. Having one child is a comfortable option but certainly isn't a mandatory choice. Also, saying that "All Chinese people are rude" is an awful generalization. First of all, how can you tell if a random stranger is Chinese? Many people from neighboring countries look similarly to people from China. Also, a small group of people from China may be rude, ...more

Well... The thing is, I'm from China. It is not all the Chinese that are bad, it is just that there are so many people in China, so of course there will be more bad people there compared to other countries. "Everybody hates China". Yes, I must agree that a lot of people hates China, but you have to go there and see for yourself, maybe things are not as bad as you think it is? The government became "cleaner" because of Xi Jing Ping now. The courtesy of theirs may be not so good, they may not say sorry when they bumped into you, but have you thought of a thing, that is maybe that's what everybody does! Maybe if one day if people start to be polite, others around them will too! Of course, there are good people the country too, I have seen it for myself for not a few times. I am not defending my own country, I am just saying the truth.

I find that the Chinese are torturers, they think they're better than everybody else and can judge when in fact their courts are all staffed by murderers in uniforms. They copy products from other nations because they have created a culture which stifles and dissuades creative thought, and brands anything non-government authorized as "Subversive". China used to be a beautiful country, now it's just another Industrial Skag Heap, not unlike many other "Developed" countries. Development is more than just building crap and being rich, civilization is more than using force of arms to conquer your neighbours. Everybody hates China, even the people who make money from working with the communists regrets cutting deals with them.

I am an Egyptian and I will just put a summary of the worst things in Egypt.

1- Government- they just don't care about what the people want and need, they can fix the country and make it a better place, THEY CAN.. I feel like they are jackasses with red monkey butts

2- traffic- it's just horrible, traffic jams everywhere, speed bumps look like they are barriers for horses to jump above them, accidents on a highway are seen everyday and public transport drivers are driving like they are in a NASCAR race with rocket engines strapped on each sides of the car

Garbage & Trash- if you wonder around in cairo you'll find everywhere beneath your legs soda cans, shopping bags, dirt, you'll also find horse poop every where since people sell fruits and vegetables with 'that platform with 4 wheels strapped to a horse that I can't remember the name of in English'

Food and medicine are almost nowhere to be found and if you find them, they'll cost you the liver or a kidney, or maybe the liver and the kidney also and don't even get me started with the crime rates.

Venezuela right now is very messed up. I'm Venezuelan and at a very young age, I moved to the US, and boy, am I glad. My dad has to work there and sometimes he doesn't even get to return home! The protests are crazy, but if it is what it has to do then let it do it. Venezuela is thought to be a very rich country because it has the most oil, but trust me, they only sell THAT. If I were the Venezuelan President, I would have changed things a little bit so I could also get money on three other things that Venezuela should be flourishing with: tourism, food production and fishing. The beaches and natural landmarks should really attract people, a whole bunch of forest really helps it to produce food, and it borders so much water, it should MASTER at fishing! I hope Nicolas Maduro is reading this, because Maduro in Spanish is mature, and he is really not living up to his last name.

So sad. A villain named Maduro (the retard president) and Chavez (venezuela worst nightmare) ruined venezuela. When I was little kid my dream was visit Venezuela, now, when I'm a adult and I visited and left venezuela. I left venezuela because some people named Chavista were stealing my money, old phone (htc tytn2), with a gun. My brother got murderered by someone in 2008. The damn president is so lazy he does nothing just he talks about lies and he's exagerating, he says horrible jokes. In the market you have: NOTHING. A lot of people is trying to quit from Venezuela. A lot of people is fighting to find Arepa (also named harina PAN) bread, egg, meat, and diapers. P.S:Do not visit Venezuela. I'm from Canada but now I live in Argentina.

Education is a crap in here, we're learning nothing but lies in our schools, and most schools are bad, most of teachers are scums and we all have to attend to tuitions to face difficult exams.

I'm brazilian, and to be honest I hate living here, violence, corruption, poverty and a list of issues that we have here.

I'm Brazilian and like 95% of Brazilians we hate our government, Brazil is the world capital of corruption. Corruption there is everywhere, you have a lot of poverty, there are more than 40000 murders a year. You have to live always taking care about things to avoid to be stolen. You couldn't get out late in some places. You always have a fear about that.

Government charges a lot in everything from citizens and there are many profiteers who charge more expensive to extort money from you.

You have to spend almost a day (8 hours) waiting for public free medical treatment and about 2 hours in private medical institutions.

The politicians just do things thinking in reelection. Parlamentarians are always increasing their own pay.

In biggest cities you spent about 2 hours to go to work and the public transportation sucks.

If you live there every day you will get noticed about new violent crimes and new political scandal about corruption.

Corruption, violence (just in some cities) and all here is expensive.

Corruption, violence, religious fanaticism, fake people, unbearable sun the whole year.

22 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. ...read more.

Living in Russia... What a nightmare. Imagine living in a ugly, gray place that sometimes resembles an industrial complex, sometimes slums, sometimes a Gulag. Imagine living among ugly, drunken, primitive, boorish oafs who have no respect for each other and mostly malevolent intentions toward foreigners. Imagine living in a place, which's corruption and crime rates often surpass the worst African countries. Imagine living life in fear of corrupt, brutal and utterly demoralized government with recent history of atrocities. Imagine that you'd have to restort to petty lies every day, just to survive. And in the end, try to imagine it's 10 times worse than all I typed. Then you'll have a somewhat accurate idea of living in Russia.

Don't get me wrong, Russia is a cool place to visit, to see some historical stuff (something you folks from the US and Canada don't really have). However, living here is a struggle. I'm so envy of my friends who are living in Toronto cause it's such a nice place to be. I saw so many happy people there. And you know, when you're happy and you don't have many serious problems to worry about, you start caring more about other people. In Russia people don't get a about others but it's not because Russians are bad, it's just a context in which everyone would become indifferent and crazy. It's also sucks to be an ugly girl here. You try so hard to keep up with other girls but guys are very superficial here (even though they themselves are ugly). If you see a good-looking Russian guy, he is 99% an ignorant and stupid. Women here have to be pretty in order to survive and we are taught from our early childhood that woman's only true goal is to marry a man. Maybe it will give you an idea why ...more

Deserves to be number 2 behind North Korea. Sure, one of America's main flaws is homophobia, but at least homosexuals usually don't get beaten and killed on the streets, let alone encouraged and endorsed by the government (which is the case in Russia). Even in the Deep South, this form of assault is a criminal offense and the worst thing that happens to gays there is either being forced to repent at Church or leave for more liberal cities in the South where tolerance towards homosexuality is higher, like Atlanta, Charlotte, and Houston. And let's not talk about poverty. Once again, the US has flaws that it needs to work on, but Russia is FAR more regressive than America when it comes to civil rights and human rights in general. I don't see why the USA is number 2 on the list when Russia is not even in the top 20.

Cuba is not the worst place to live, but is not a great place either. Let me explain, I was born here and sure, you can't compare the hell in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, and Sierra Leone to Cuba. However, everybody has dreams, motivations, and wants to get out of the hole he's living in. Now, we do agree that the hole varies depending on your perspective on living standards. But there's a line. You need to have at least clothing, food, and a house or lodging, and a decent job that can pay for that. Not possible here, the only reason Cuba does not collapse is because of our culture: people living in parent's house with grandparents, and so forth which is normal and accepted. It is the family and what's left of it, what has sustained this; otherwise, we would have a much bigger crises than we have today, famines and much worse crime. The other part is freedom, there's none here; you cannot speak out your mind; you see something wrong, you better don't speak about it or denounce it. ...more

24 Palestine Palestine

After the Holocaust during WW2 the Jews said "we must never forget" and "We must never let this happen again" Agree 100%. So why are they doing the exact same thing to another people? Its hypocritical. Israel reminds me of the kid who get bullied so much that they flip out and shoot the school up. I feel for them that they really have been shat upon for most of history but that's not an excuse to turn around and dish it out to others. The Jews have a choice: their history could teach them compassion or vengeance. Up to them to decide.

Jewish people ran away from persecution from the Nazis, and know Palestinian people ran from Israeli persecution. Did you ever think of that you hopeless Jews?

Just because of religion and independence, Israel and Palestine have been battling for years. There's no ceasefire. Schools have been destroyed, with innocent children being killed/injured. There's always sounds of explosions through the nights, and troops killing people. It is a sad sight to see. It is, however, human nature, and things like this have happened in the past and will continue for ages to come. - ethanmeinster

Israel is righteous in all respects. The Palestinian government has ruined the lives of there people, by putting grudges above peace, and endangering half there population in the Gaza, and pausing the development in the west back. Long live Israel.

25 South Sudan 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.

South Sudan is the least developed country in the world. The government could care less about its citizens and the leader of the country got into some useless dispute with the deputy prime minister making the situation worse. If you go to this country you will literally see nothing destroyed from the war. Why? Because there was literally nothing to destroy. There is hardly any infrastructure. Crime rates are sky high and people are so desperately poor and hungry they will eat dirt. If you go out at night you can't see anything because there are no city lights for miles around. Even if there was lights you still couldn't see any people because the people there are so black that any African American would be jealous.

Do not give any money or reject providing assistance to either North or South Sudan. Both Countries are corrupt with too many needy people. They are rude, aggressive, liars, racists, uncivilized and barbaric. They export terror, violence, too many children (whom they neglect), and bring down the standard of living of any first world nation into a third world state.

The same applies to Congo, Nigeria, Somalia, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Kenya, and Uganda.

I've said it a few times, you're telling everyone that all of Sudan and South Sudan's people are awful. Wow. How stereotypical are you? That may be the 3 percent or something of the people committing genocide, but the other 97 percent are not awful people. Don't judge everyone in a country because it's got a few bad apples. All countries do. - Turkeyasylum

Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

The 2 of you are completely wrong. Australia is ranked the best country in the world to live in and there is a reason. Australia is ranked the top 3 in each category. You never see "made in Australia" because Australia makes its wealth out of minerals. Australia is home to the most venomous spiders in the world but the are all in the rainforest. Australia also has the best cities in the world to live in. 4 cities that are in Australia are in the top 10. Every other country's city is only in the top 10 once. Australia is also home to the best city in the world to live in. MELBOURNE. 5th is Adelaide, 7th is Sydney and 9th is Perth. BEAT THAT. Australia is the best country to live in in the world.

I am a Libyan citizen but quite frankly it's a very hostile environment for anyone who isn't Libyan and also some what hostile to their own kind. Ever since the beginning of the war things went south. Now there is occasional power outages, water outages and almost daily murders but the worst thing of it is their is no longer a proper police or military and the country is practically full of these Militia who have no experience with fire arms other than that they obtained from the rebellion. However despite all that Libya has potential and can be made a great place in some decades or so.

Country is full of Islamist - selfish, double faced inhuman ignorant, unprofessional, uneducated, immigrants with no sense of national duty superstitious uncommitted unhelpful thieves and exploiters.

NO NATIONAL DUTY, NO IDENTITY, NO SENSE OF RIGHT, AND FULL OF SHOW OFF HYPOCRITES.

This country needs to be dismantled, and all the immigrants since 1960 should be EXPELLED back to whatever poverty stricken hole they came from.

This is the only way to fix this country to what it used to be, or supposed to be.

Now its infested with degenerate criminals who kidnap and steal, who cut electricity, rapists, exploiters and destroyers of anything good.

Everyone is so anti-intellectual in this country and most people only strive for mediocrity. The gap of rich and poor people is very wide because the constitution itself protects the wealthy few. Everything, even the utility is privatised so the government cannot control the sky-rocketing prices. The Catholic Church (and other religious groups) meddle too much in political matters and they advocate being poor so that they could rake in more desperate supporters. Quality education here is only available to those who can afford it and the education system itself rarely reflects the real working world. Most of the movies and T.V. shows made in this country nowadays makes the people dumb and the T.V. stations only strive to milk their audience without giving quality entertainment. No freedom to divorce an abusive marriage because there is no divorce law. There is no sex education too so yes, teens fall into stupidity.

There are so many beautiful places in Mexico. Some people think its all guns, drugs and violence but no. Mexico is by far the place with the most tourists places ever; it got everything. Yeah the government really sucks but that wont stop people from being happy and enjoying life.

Mexico should not be on the list. Yes, there are some bad places (most of those bad places are close to the USA border), but there is also a lot of very nice places with amazing beaches, beautiful women, cool shops, and all that good stuff. I think the Mexican culture is very interesting, and so are the celebrations. Mexico is the country I would like the most to visit, it seems like a very cool place. I would love to party in a Mexican club!

You will pay huge taxes, earn much less than you can earn in the US, medicine is miserable, MILLIONS or rules for everything, you can't even take a breath without thinking that you may violate some law. Everything is expensive considering super low salaries. They are still living in stone age and doing everything with paper letters. Mobile Internet is super slow and expensive and you pay 5 Euro or more for 1 gigabyte (! ). Very depressive people and poor weather around the year. For anything in Germany you have to sign a contract, even if you just want to go to fitness for a day. They also hate foreigners and you can read this in the comment section on German news websites... I can actually tell thousands of other bad things about Germany, but there are so many...

Germany's not the worst place to live in, but I have lived there for 1 year and I can name some cons about their people. The German boys are really annoying and keep mocking my accent (I'm Singaporean). The girls are just as bad and want everything to be their way.

Sorry to say but before I travelled to Argentina I thought it was a really cool country but now that I've been here I've realized that they are the worlds most unfriendliest country. I grew up thinking Buenos Aires was an amazing place but the truth is... Don't be fooled by the sun.

I lived there for three years and I had lot of fun.. argentineans are outgoing and kind. I could travel to some provinces and I loved it, specially the waterfalls in the north east of the country.

If you're planning to visit the country, them it's one of the best. Specially the Patagonia, we have beautiful landscapes here.
However, if you are considering living here, it's not a bad idea, but there are better choices, everything is getting even more expensive (1 dollar is worth 18 pesos and they are considering raising it to 20), taxes are very high, you will need at least 20.000 pesos monthly to properly survive and you might be lucky if you can find a job where you earn more than that per month. Actually, argentinian companies tend to hire foreigners rather than locals because they are willing to work in order to make any money, even if theirs salary is lower than normal.
You are forced to vote here, and you have to choose the political party that "might screw you less than the others". Government here is very unreliable.

Albania is by far not 100% westernized. There is still corruption in the government and until that is fixed they can't be like most of Europe but what I noticed Albanian adopt very quickly. They are growing faster and quicker than any other Balkan country I have been in. Now you can't compare Kosovo to Albania. Yes both countries speak the same language but Kosovo is still a war torn country and it will take decades to be where Albania is.
Ignore the poster below as it is very bias obviously but Albanian people I find to be very attractive specially the women. They are very exotic.

Albanians have a lovely culture and are hospitable. The country is still recovering from 40 years of Communism after being closed to the world when no one could leave or enter the country before becoming an open democratic country in 1990. People knew nothing about Albania or Albanians before 1990. People are now learning about Albania's culture and people. Albanians themselves have told me what it was like in the country during communism.

This list is inaccurate. Your telling me Nicaragua, a poverty-bound country who is pretty much in collapse, better than Albania? But anyways, Albania should;t be so low. Albania offers great schools, beaches and decent cuisine. Unfortunately the Albanian Government is Corrupt, as many Socialist party people are buying votes. Albania has a bad reputation because they were communist, but this is a stupid argument. With this, I could say Poland,Estonia,Hungary, Eastern Germany, and so much more countries are terrible places, because there were communist, which makes no sense. Albania is a great place, but it needs some improvement - EhhhBarca

People with bad manners and poor education. One of the worst country to visit, I can't imagine to live there.

It's a good Country. Underrated and has good schools, beaches and nice olive trees in Southern Albania - EhhhBarca

46 Niger Niger Niger, officially the Republic of Niger, is a landlocked country in Western Africa, named after the Niger River.

It is so Dangerous Believe me

Sometimes I don't know which one is worse Niger or Nigeria - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Niger is another African Country with self-hating, closet racists, that emigrate and upset (by being race/religious baiters) civilised countries around the world. The West African Countries deserve to be taken and their people wiped out by BOKO HARAM.

47 Poland

All of this racist talk is severely over exaggerated of course there is some racism in Poland but please give me a country with no racism? I have been to Poland many times and not once was I given a dirty look or anything negative for that! Parts of Poland are really beautiful and the people are really helpful and nice! I'll give you a little anecdote I was in the airport badly in need to go toilet however you have to pay and I had no money this one man gave me the money for it for free and even watched over my bags! Does this sound rude or violent?

I am Polish and I have moved out of Poland long time ago but I can honestly say that Poland is one of the most welcoming countries. Yes there are few grey buildings but so what name a country with no grey buildings. The only problem I see is the the politic and people trying to run the country to suit them. There is no perfect country but all countries are what you make out of them! Peace!

Poles are some of the most miserable, complaining, arrogant, ignorant, petty, xenophobic, dishonest people you'll find anywhere. I lived there and met hundreds of them. Mist are also 'experts' on every imaginable topic - especially when they have no idea what they're talking about. With some exceptions the above is generally true, and objectively honest Polish people (a rarity) know it is. My god, they don't even like or trust each other let alone most other cultures, nations, or people.

48 Kazakhstan Kazakhstan Kazakhstan, officially known as the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country in northern Central Asia, with a sliver of its territory west of the Ural River extending into Eastern Europe.

People stop dissing mass cultures! read the ivory coast quote to learn what I think about people saying a country sucks to live it because people are

Kazakhstan is the very best country to live in! It provides its people with everything they need))) Just visit the country and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised.

Kazakhstan is a beautiful country, you just have bad taste.

Well, some cities of Kazakhstan like Atyrau and Kyzylorda are really bad to live in, but I myself live in Almaty and there is so nice and lovely. Espescially in March. - misfortuneluck

50 Vatican City Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome.

I couldn't even imagine living here. Sometimes people say places are nice to visit but you wouldn't want to live there. This isn't even a nice place to visit. Me and my family went on a cruse along the Italian coast and stopped off in Rome because, well, it's Rome. We saw the colosseum and the old forum and everything. And than our tour guide took is to the Vatican City walls and just left us. Just than my grandfather fell on the crosswalk when we were right across from the gate and nobody came to help him! There were guards just standing right there and they did nothing. He was fine but he could have been seriously hurt. When we went inside I felt like I was in elementary school again. We were standing in a line with hundreds of tourists all crowded together. When we went through security we saw there guards dressed up like Shakespearean actors that all of our water and almost everything "secular" temporarily away from us. So we were without water and stuck in the Vatican ...more

How to live in a Country where there is no women?

- Alizia

I think (but this is just my opinion) that Vatican is the worst country ever. For me, there's nothing to do in there, I'm an atheist. I don't have anything against Christians (or any other religions) but I think it's a very bad idea to have a country focused only on a religion. How is the economy going to be good, if there's only religion? And Vatican is so small, if you want to go out and have fun, you will have to go in another country, that must be a huge problem for the people that live there. And I personaly can't understand why would anyone want to live there. But, again, I don't have anything against religion or people living in Vatican, this is just my personal opinion.
