Worst Countries to Live In
The Top Ten
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.
North Korea is terrible. The totalitarian dictatorship, the huge meaningless string of laws in place for the sake of propoganda and to suit "The Great Leader" and his "requirements", the huge clumps of soldiers placed to march, the propoganda posters plastered on every single damn place you can see, the labor camps that proudly boasts one of the worst conditions and torture you can find currently on this planet, the poor, disillusioned people who percieve of their ruthless Dictator as their "God" and the fact that there is no Internet for the citizens of North Korea... These are, just to name a few, the reasons to why North Korea is the worst Country to live in.V 744 Comments
When you land at Mogadishu's international airport, the first form you fill out asks for name, address, and caliber of weapon. Believe it or not, this disaster of a city, the capital of Somalia, still gets a few commercial flights. Some haven't fared so well. The wreckage of a Russian cargo plane shot down in 2007 still lies crumpled at the end of the runway. Beyond the airport is one of the world's most stunning monuments to conflict: block after block, mile after mile, of scorched, gutted-out buildings. Mogadishu's Italianate architecture, once a gem along the Indian Ocean, has been reduced to a pile of machine-gun-chewed bricks. Somalia has been ripped apart by violence since the central government imploded in 1991. Eighteen years and 14 failed attempts at a government later, the killing goes on and on and on -- suicide bombs, white phosphorus bombs, beheadings, medieval-style stonings, teenage troops high on the local drug called khat blasting away at each other and anything in ...more
In all honesty you are so ignorant that its not even funny. It's actually pretty sad. I've been to Somalia and it is not as bad as you make it seem. no one asks for a caliber of weapon... the country is on its way to retribution. although I do agree its once gem-like appearance would truly allow it to be called the "pearl of the Indian Ocean", is now reduced to rubble and machine gun destruction. all I'm trying to say is complete ignorance is not needed
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.
This is statistically the most dangerous country, but North Korea is still worse because at least you have a chance at getting out of Somalia. If you are born in North Korea you are screwed over from the start. Being born in Somalia is arguably worse but leaving is a much more realistic thing to do - 10JacksonV 170 Comments
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.
I agreeV 132 Comments
TOTALLY. If you're looking to go round the world, do NOT go here.
This is such a good place to live! I participated in multiple school shootings and helped pan 9/11. I am proud of what I am!
We are still in war there it never stops they need to make some friends other than themselves
I lived there for 10.5 years and it was terrible I was close to death almost daily: Suicide bombers, shootings, bad army, thieves, planted bombs etc...V 121 Comments
I think that Syria is a pretty bad place to live in because it is currently a war zone. Many people are fighting there and the people that were born there are dying. I'm pretty sure that Syria used to be safe in the 20th century but eventually it got worse and it's been happening almost every day now. So, I'm really hoping that this war stops.
Some says the worst is north korea. You better change your mind, even through they got less freedom, it meant to be safer if you didn't do anything. For countries that having war all the day, life ain't important anymore. Imagine you got killed by missiles for just staying at home
Syria is just bad nothing fun nothing cool its dangerous and stupid Syria also has a lot of hoodlums.
Totally with that war going on in there how can the people stand it?V 131 Comments
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
Am unfortunately born a Pakistani, but thanks to god I had the fortune of living most of my life out of that place. Let me summarise why it definitely belongs in this list:
GOVERNMENT: There is barely ever any positive growth or development of any kind any where. They try to make it appear like they are improving things when in fact it's just going backwards in terms of development etc. In this so-called "democracy", the political leaders just keep taking turns to come into power as they wish. Votes, government officers, police and even the law can be bought with money. If you aren't corrupt enough, you usually barely earn enough from 100% honest work/zero corruption to fulfil basic necessities. The "government" miserably fails to provide basic things such as electricity to its people.
SECURITY: Nope. Almost non-existent unless you are a high-profile corrupt politician. A huge number of police men are criminals themselves and at least 90% of them can ...more
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

The world's poorest country to be honest, have seen so many negative news about this country and the people. Poor Country smh.V 30 Comments
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'm Yemeni myself, and I say every single comment probably did a 3 minute research. The only reason Yemen is 10th was because of the arab spring. Now, it's terrorist groups, such as 'Houthis' which are corrupting the country. Yemen is not a safe country, but it has a lot of nice people. If you're a tourist and looking for a great place to stay, it would be Yemen, but right now it's a total mess. Also, education isn't great. Those are the 2 reasons I'm not living in Yemen anymore, and I do miss it a lot. Hope things go back just like they were before 2011.
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.
Yemen should be higher Yemen is even worse than Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan,Iraq, Syria,and Sudan it should be number 1 in the worst countries, In North Korea no one is poor or starving. But in Yemen must of the peoples are starving and poor, Yemen currently faces worst civil war. It is also Saudi Arabia and Qatar's fault, Because it is really the war between Qatar and Saudi Arabia in Yemen.V 36 Comments
My country but its government sucks
Zimbabwe is the worst country to live. I was born there bit when it comes to facts Zimbabwe is the worst country to live in.

2: People behave like barbarians
3:There is litter everywhere

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.V 7 Comments
Poor beheaviour towards foreigners. Lots of smoking (all ages). Loud during the day and night. Italy's economy is quickly going down the drain. Absolutely horrible education system and terrible government.
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 and just I'd like to say it's not cool at all. 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 ...more
Yes that is true, there in Italy, people are very racist.
It's so hard as a black or Arabic to find a good job, homes and it seems that because you are not Italian, you have to struggle for anything.
Italians don't hesitate to show their hates, specially when you are foreigner. I was tired of the racism in Italy.
I call all migrants to come here in Italy to make change things.
We will succeed, because there is a lot to do here anywhere Italians are so lazy and inefficient.
Italy is a purely Third World country barely attached to Europe by a twist of fate. If it was not for the constant flow of money from Europe to Italy, italians would be starving to death in the streets. The corruption is everywhere, and permeates every aspect of life in Italy, from the highest political leaders to the least public officer. Criminals are never punished, on the contrary are praised and admired by the people. In the rare cases when police awakens and try to do something the common people comes to the street to defend criminals and allow them to hide. it is simply not possible to live in Italy if you are not part of the system (MAFIA). it should be the worst Country, because most of other places are in this list just because they are in War since many years, if not they would be normal nice places to live in. but in Italy there is no war.V 83 Comments
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

India sucks. Truth hurts, India suffers from over population (the population of Brazil and USA combined doesn't beat India population) the majority are narrow minded and believe in superstitions, they are also very racist and they think its not wrong, they have caste system which 90% of other countries don't understand. The country is ruled by corrupt officials who only care about money. The education system is messed up, the way teachers teach their students, boys should have short hair also they have the most ridiculous uniforms, if guy has long hair he is called a girl also a girl sporting short is called boy cut (like seriously what is a boy cut) and these students grow up with this mind set and become the narrow minded citizens of tomorrow. The schools are the main culprits, India also suffers from lack of clean drinking water facility and toilets. The people lie, cheat and steal and are VERY perverted, crime rates are high especially against woman, no woman can walk around ...more

How is Italy higher than this country?
Should be number 1. It's the newest country in the world but that's the only good thing about it. You know the stereotype that most African countries are super poor and everyone lives in mud huts while starving and being chased by animals? That stereotype is true there.
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.
Why the hell is Italy above this country?!V 18 Comments
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.

One of the Top 10 Failed States in the World. It should be ranked higher. It is a corrupt country with self-hating people and it operates the biggest Drug Syndicates in the world. It is also the Scam Capital of the World. It is home to Boko Haram (Islamic Terrorist Group) that operates North of Nigeria.
Corruption is massive. Poor infrastructure and a political elite willing to sell Nigeria's people and land to the west for peanuts.

Venezuela's a perfect example of a country on the verge of collapse.
Hyperinflation, crime, poverty and an authoritarian regime are just some of the reasons why this country will eventually collapse in the coming years.
Stop giving aid to Venezuela. 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 uncivilised, and divided third world country plagued with poverty, crime, and corruption.
This country is an enormous mess, the communist government has everything in such a bad shape that living here is and endless daily torture that you can only "escape" when you sleep and the socialist "opposition" just helps the government to achieve its goal which is the subjugation of the population. Don't even think of coming here, you'll regret it. Inflation is so high that you can't even afford the most basic needs. 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. People are rude, ignorant, a high percentage have their brains washed with the lie that venezuelans are such a great people, they're conformists, if an athlete wins a bronze medal on a tournament, you can see the headlines in the newspapers telling that such medal is like having won a gold one, they don't care for a good quality of life and want everything free no matter ...moreV 41 Comments

Poland is one of the buttcracks of Europe. Some of the most miserable, petty, lame, racist, rude, arrogant people in the world. Should be higher on this list.
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.
Poland is cancer, I hate living there, the language is a complete garbage that no one wants or is actually able to learn, the economy is so awful that people emigrate to Germany and other wealthy countries every year just to avoid getting messed by the crappy salary you get offered there. And all that thanks to Russians, they're subhumans and should be shot on sight.

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 pays 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... It's normal and accepted. It is family, and what's left of it, what has sustained this; otherwise, we would have a much bigger crises than we have today, we would have famines. 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. Speaking ...more
My father was Cuban, and oh my goodness, just by his stories alone, Cuba was and still is a crappy place.
To live in Cuba is horrible. I'm so happy I left 15 years ago!
Cuba should be right at the top because of crime rate, corruption, violence, poverty, oppression and no civil rights or liberty.
The place is beautiful, a paradise if you go to visit, but hell for those who stay. Ask people who lived in Cuba and they will agree.

I have lived on the same floor as a bunch of Angolan labourers. They are the most annoying and ignorant people I have ever encountered. They shout every word they speak, they never shut up and they have to have a gathering of dozens of people for every meal.

Believe me there is nothing as bad as Russia in the world! The weather yes it is very cold but let it be because that's none of my business to criticize and demoralize any country for its weather but people here are so stupid, all of them are oblivious of what people think of them outside the country and what they have been going through, they don't know their government is making fool outta themselves and they believe what their government and media says despite knowing that their media is controlled by their so called honest government.
Everything is getting so expensive here, even water costs a lot, milk is of so many variety and all of them cost different.
Nobody is expected to be speaking English, apart from Russian language, nobody knows anything.
If you go to the supermarket, whatever you will buy it would have description written in Russian language, nothing is mentioned in English not even a bit.

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
Russia is hellV 95 Comments
Former president boiled people alive.
The worst country in the world to live in I would put it in the second place after Afganistan. Very poor economy, forced labour, rough roads, crazy drivers, the lowest net income, polluted dusty air, and stupid dictators
One of the worst countries to live in. One of only two countries where citizens need government's permission to exit the country (even for holidays). The other country with this requirement is North Korea.
Poverty, slave labour, corruption, poor healthcare, poor education makes this at the bottom 5 for me. It is shame because people are very nice, kind and hospitable, but authorities are repressive.

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.
Disgusting nation filled with disgusting pigs, sub-humans.
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?

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. FACE THE FACTS.
The government is a problem, and so is the climate in the southern area with cassowaries and kangaroos flooding the area. - Charmedyeti
Australia should not be on here! I don't live here - I used to. One person said there was spiders. Yeh there's dangerous spiders and other dangerous animals - but they live in the middle of nowhere and everyone lives on the coast in the main cities.
It's one of the sports capital of the world. We main event Rugby, Cricket, Football, Soccer, Swimming, Formula 1, Tennis, Gymnastic, Golf, Ironman.
Homeless people (rare) make more money off the streets than some countries do with daily wages even weekly for the fair few.. No starvation here and there's welfare support, the dole, all sorts of government financial help eligible for the many.
Australia is huge and the outback is beautiful. The beaches here is top notch some of the best in the world, definitely a great idea to travel around this country with family. The weather can range from very hot to very stormy but that's the beauty of it.
Our health care system one of the best in the world, our transportation also one of the best in the world. I live in a suburb called Prahran, we have trams, trains, buses, taxis, a path for cyclist there's no excuse to not get somewhere.
We have civil rights, a good law system to keep ...more - williamtalavou
To be completely frank you can't discuss the quality of life without talking about the economy.
The two main industries in Australia is mining and property (real estate)...the majority of their mining exports is to one country: China. And this lack of industry impacts all areas of life: from boring (paper shuffling) jobs to culturally dead areas of empty shops (thanks to bubble property leading to ludicrous rents) and (leading to) overpriced poor quality products and a stressed/indebted/unhappy populace. If you're a technologically savvy person who likes creativity / innovation /interesting jobs/ a thriving youth culture/ more freedom to do what you want : you MUST stay away from Australia. It will be hell for you. You literally do not want to be in debt for 30 years (or spend 30% of your income just on rent and the rest on overpriced goods and insane taxes) just to live in a cultural environment similar to a retirement village.

Being taken over by Russia, so it might not even be a country anymore soon.
90% of the comments against ukraine and poland are bots, don't pay attention, it's fine in most places, and no one "bombed my house and killed my mother", there is no way
I came from Ukraine, guys, getting 350$/months and trying to survive on this money in this country is the worst.
I live in Ukraine and it's absolutely horrible! The new government is attacking my friends and family in Donetsk and not letting us speak the Russian language which is my first language, and then showing propaganda and lies on the television, banning all the Russian channels so that the people are brainwashed into thinking Russia is attacking us when it's not! It's absolutely disgusting!V 21 Comments
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?
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.
Is it even possible to live in the Vatican City without being the pope or a cardinal!V 19 Comments

Macedonia is a nightmare
A beautiful country in itself. The forests, Skopje, all a sight to behold. The only problem is the borders. Bulgaria: enough said really. In political downfall with ignorant civilians. Albania: high levels of terrorism and violence and a pretty imbecilic leader. Serbia: a pretty violent country obviously withstanding problems with neighbouring country Albania. If you want a nice holiday destination, Macedonia is one of the best. Just don’t come hear to live.
All that hate speakers are Greeks, they forget to say about forced migrations of Macedonian people and a lot of children that has been forced out of the country try 1900's, they survived a lot of horrors from greek people. My grandmother still remembers and have nightmares from that time- how greek soldier cut open a women in front of her- she was seven mounts pregnant and put the baby on the end of his bayonet,.. they force changed their names, they were forbidden to speak their language, they were bitten and put in jail for nothing.V 18 Comments
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!
NEVER travel to Iran alone. They will lie to you and trick you and rob you!
Almost everything they say is a lie, you can NOT believe anybody there, old, young, men and women, everyone will lie to you!
You can't even ask for address, they lie to you just for a laugh! It's maddening! They're mentally ill!
Iran is ONE BIG MENTAL HOSPITAL!
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.
I am a Bangladeshi citizen and honestly I agree with your view. Shame that our people have more pride than logic. For example they blame paypal for not starting their services in the country when the government is solely responsible for the paypal debacle. And secondly arrogance runs rampant in our society, like for example they hate anything modern, forward thinking, new age ideas; which is exactly why we are among the most disturbing group of people in existenceV 87 Comments

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.

South Africa is a beautiful country and white people are treated as fairly as they should be. Black people have been punished for thousands of years and now that a country is being ruled by black people everyone is going crazy. Yes our government is giving back to black people but they deserve it. Even if you did not grow up in the apartheid time you are still affected by it. White people are privileged and black people aren't. It's facts and to all those people who are saying white people are being treated badly, so are black, colored, orange people. Everyone in their lifetime will be affected by racism no matter what race you are but for now in South Africa their will always be some controversy but it is liveable.
South Africa is a beautiful country to live in. Much freedom here. Black government is seriously corrupt. President support white genocide. More than 90 000 white people murdered from 1994 - 2014. More than 700 million rand embezzled/missing as per Auditor General report. President stole more than ZAR220million to upgrade his homestead, he also has more than 700 corruption charges against him. Seriously if we can get a leader who promotes no racism, and transparent governance this will be the best country in the world

Living in Mexico sucks so bad after being used to the US, the people are nice, but businesses SUCK! They over charge everything and underpay their employees. Don't be one day late paying your light bill (you'll get your lights shut off. And even after paying the bill they can take from 3 to 7 working days to get the lights turned back on...
