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 in turn 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.

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.

2 Somalia Somalia

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.

Somalia is an ugly joke.

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.

Afghanistan is my birth place, its not that bad. I know people die everyday from explosions on Afghanistan but its all peoples fault. they totally forgot about all the good places in afg. and by the way Iraq, Iran and Syria are way worst than this country. and sorry for my bad english

5 Syria Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

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.

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.

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 wish my grandparents would not came here at 1947...

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

They are bad

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).

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.

Sad excuse for a nation. Literally everyone there is brainwashed and they say they have "reformed" but in reality its just as barbaric as the Soviet Union. - mikelatham

9 Yemen Yemen Yemen, officially known as the Republic of Yemen, is an Arab country in Western Asia, occupying the southwestern to the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula.

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.

There is barely any aid or food that is being imported. It is told that 14.6 million Yemeni's are expected to die from starvation; that is 3 times the people that died in the holocaust

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!

11 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.

"The Burning Heart of Africa"

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.

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.

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.

I am visiting here in Italy now (2013) and it is a very unfriendly country. Speaking with other Visitors here let's me know all jobs go to the Italians so remaining here is not feasible. Hail to America the land of opportunity for ALL people's.

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

Venezuela is the perfect example of what socialism does. What was once a proud and prosperous country is now a hyperinflated mess under a cruel and tyrannical dictator in the form of Nicolas Maduro.

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.

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.

Great country, low poverty rate, and very safe. The only really bad thing is that their government is on par with Russia in terms of oppression. However, they are very much fighting against terrorism and are very active in getting rid of ISIS and other terrorist groups. Their military is strong, and I don't know personally, but from personal communication with Wolfychu herself, who happens to be Iranian, the people are pretty nice. Plus, they do a lot of industrial and scientific work in house instead of relying on outside sources.

Now, the only bad thing about the country, as I said before, is the horrific government, which, although not as bad as Russia in terms of oppression, is still very close to Russia in oppression. Although it is not as severe as that of Russia, Internet Censorship is still active in blocking sites that they see as a threat to the country.

Incredibly corrupt and unsafe. The Nigerians are so dumb when it comes to economic decisions. The have everything in front of them. Oil, refineries, gold, diamonds. Yet they can't become stable because the are so stupid and corrupt. The streets at night are full of gangs, drug dealers, terrorists, bandits, and thieves. DO NOT visit this place. You will regret it. - TooDumbtoDie

This DEVIL country produces self-hating, rude, aggressive, greedy, racist, homophohic and Christian-pretending rats. They export scams, violence, AIDs, drug operations, terrorism, sadistic rituals and too many children around the world.

They deserve to be run by a self-serving corrupt bureaucratic government and BOKO HARAM.

They say "God Help Us". I say "God is helping them suffer from their sins".

Israel has plenty of culture. Far more culture than the US.

24 Poland

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.

I like the fact that everyone in Poland is so dumb, they’re practically incapable of being truly malicious.

25 Cuba Cuba Cuba, officially the Republic of Cuba, is a sovereign state comprising the island of Cuba as well as Isla de la Juventud and several minor archipelagos.

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

Hello! I'm cuban like many of you. I'm proud to be cuban, but I did expect it in this list. I mean, It is a communist country, and its also very poor :V
What mostly surprised me was that the most populated places are worst than cuba
but yes, I do agree that it is one of the worst places to live in.

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.

The Communist government is dominating the entire nation. It is terrible that Castro is giving to his Cuban subjects only a little bit of rice and beans to live on. - fuegoconhielopara777

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.

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 nice place to visit, but I would not live there if I were you for several reasons:

1) It is hardly safe: Organized Crime/terrorism is a constant threat, especially from local mobs. The cops are brutal and heavy handed, often beating someone for the smallest offense. Plus, they are doing nothing about the gang violence.

2) PERVASIVE Internet Censorship: In recent years, Rosskommnadzor has been cracking down on more and more content as Putin continues to make more laws regarding what is allowed on Russian internet. In 2012, they started arresting people who make memes, especially about Vladimir Putin. Then, they went on to ban LinkedIn, Google Telegram, even FaceBook during the elections (most Russians use the government-owned VK.com anyway). In 2018, Russia ramped up these efforts significantly, even requesting websites start taking down content that they deem a threat to national security. Do NOT even get me started on Putin's recent ...more

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

27 Angola Angola

Angola sucks

I didn't even know Angola was a country. Oh well. - MaxPap

Stop giving aid to Angola. 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.

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. Their food smells like garbage and rotten stinky tuna fish and they litter the hallways with garbage. Both the men and women use intimidation in order to try to get their way and simple politeness is absolutely lost on the Angolan people.

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.

Damn what is this Middle East hate? not evryone is a terrorist.

29 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.

I'm pretty sure Israel isn't rounding up their entire population and brutally killing them. Sure they are at war, but Palestine is the one bombing Israeli kindergarteners. - NapoleonBonaparte

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?

Full of liar. They came after israel exist. Hamas ruined every chances for having Palestine their own state Israel would have gave to it. The main problem is not israel. It's Hamas himself who caused everything.

Palestine should not exist.

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!

Being taken over by Russia, so it might not even be a country anymore soon.

I live in Sloviansk and a few days ago the Ukrainian army came in and bombed my house, shot my mother and blamed it on the people who live here. I moved to Russia since then because I know I'm gonna die if I stay.

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 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.

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.

Is it even possible to live in the Vatican City without being the pope or a cardinal!

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.

"Macedonia" is the worst country to live.
They are poor and they are being brainwashed by the politician that they are the descendants of Alexander the Great.
All the historians in the world say that they are not.

33 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.

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 existence

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.

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.

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.

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.

If you are going to Africa this is the place to go. It is the safest (compared to the rest of Africa) country on the continent. But DO NOT hook up with any prostitutes. There is a very good chance they are AIDS infected. South Africa has the most HIV/AIDS infected people in Africa (and the whole world). Don't be Glenn Quagmire when visiting South Africa.

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.

They should change their country name to Cartel Republic of Mexico

Okay, Mexico may have a bad reputation for having all the Cartels and the fact that deforestation is hitting Mexico hard, but at least it isn't as bad as most places. Look at North Korea, as an example. The laws are so strict, you'd think that living there is a guaranteed death sentence towards birth. Mexico has people who are different than you think. They have the same things like everyone else; a culture(s), a way of life, and a different way of speaking. Mexicans are people who have seen things like people in the U.S, or U.K. They aren't always sad and depressed, they're always happy and willing to help because they don't care if the government is crap. They care that they get to help because they know it's the right thing to do, even if nothing is given back to them.

Unless if it's beer, yeah they will hurt you for that.

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.

I don't and I will never understand how many salvadoreans are PROUD of their country when there is people killed everyday in there, their government is just making them even more poor, 80 municipalities have been declared as extreme poverty zones, people is dying by hunger, you can't leave your house without being afraid of being murdered or robbed! How would ANYONE love this country!?

Some places in El Salvador are terribles, but others aren't that bad. I would actually like to visit this country! Salvadoreans are proud of their country because not all places are scary and violent, some cities in El Salvador are nice and great for tourists. Yes, there is a high criminal rate, but every country has its problems. And if you're careful while visiting this country, things should go pretty well.

How is Turkey a BAD PLACE TO LIVE IN?!?!? Maybe you guys live in a bad place in Turkey

Everyone’s economy is collapsing it seems. I know some Turks and they very nice and polite. The language is a bit hard, but English is far worse (English is just weird). WHY IS TURKEY ON THIS LIST?

Turkey is the WORST country ever

Turkey has strong army, in top 10 list.

Turkey has beautiful culture, cities and people, their people are too nice.

Turkey has pretty nice economy.

Free healthcare, free education.

No racism, many people from different cultures are well welcomed here.

How you can say Turkey is a good country? I have been in USA before and I can even say Turkey is better than USA. Just because of culture.

49 Haiti Haiti

It is a country battered by history. Every draw is magnified to a full-blown catastrophe. The poorest country in the western hemisphere. It is incredibly poor and unstable. There is no rule of law. No guarantee. No employment, living day to day and look at how you can earn some money to eat.

Most Haitians live in some form of tent home because after the earthquake about 6 years ago they were too scared to go back home, or else they had no home to go back to. There are also no job opportunities there and the government is one of the most corrupt in the world and so is the Police force. The police steal money and kill people. Most girls are sold to be slaves before they are 18, and most boys are cast out of the home and just abandoned, they run in gangs on the streets often getting in trouble with the cops. Cholera and other sicknesses thrive in the close quarters of tent cities and it doesn't help that they sometimes have to eat mud cakes which is basically dirt set to dry in the sun. So don't say there is not trouble in Haiti. There is trouble. And its everywhere.

Haiti may be corrupted and bad and all but it has great beaches, great landscapes, and an amazing History. But Haitians are tainting the country. They are not working together and they rather are bad and try to survive: killing, kidnapping, stealing and all, instead of being good and create magic, spread love and fight corruption. It's kind of like Gotham city in Batman instead we don't have a Batman to save the innocents. Which is why it is horrendous in the inside but breathtaking on the outside.

Haiti is a very dark place. Literally. It's not really a good place to be. Kinda like the hood.

Poverty and misery... ! The rich are stealing from the country budget without being sued. The retirement age is 65, most of the people, killed by the medication system, didn't even survive to get retired. Everything is expensive, but the people don't have enough money to afford a meal.

As a Bulgarian I hate this country with all my heart. The population is decreasing because of the poverty and low payed jobs. I wanna get out of here.

Dirty place, horrible I broke my nose over there

There is a lot of poverty in Bulgaria but the government doesn't even bother to help the poor or get support from another country.
