I'm Iranian and every time I'm in another country and someone asks me where I'm from I'm ashamed to say Iran. All because of the selfish, self centered, racist, idiotic, rude people who only care about Iran and always tend to make a big fuss about it like "Oh Iran is so great because it has a rich culture and history" and " Iran is better than the rest of the world". And when I tell them what about now? What do we have now? Everyone is like " your still too young to understand (I'm 14) " and "your just blindly following the western community ".and everyone is always saying " the situation will get better soon. For now let's just pray ". They don't know that God will only help them if they try (which they don't) therefor it's hopeless staying here and trying your dang hardest to make your country a better place and everyone else just sits around doing nothing. A while ago my grandmother had to be hospitalized.The ambulance came 45 minutes after we called and that itself caused my ...more

That's what I'm always talking about always! I'm from iran too! 100% true - HomogeneousKhalidus

I'm Iranian and let me get this straight: THIS COUNTRY SUCKS. PERIOD. Iran might once was a great count ry. n ot today.

You ask why? Unstable economy, Poverty among people, inequality of rights between men and women, social injustice, stressful life, unpredictable future, unbelievably poor country management, fake democracy, Huge traffic problems and culture, religious intolerance, extremist government, evil fuhrer, etc...

If you see there are people above this comment admiring Iran, they've just either never seen another country or their idea is purely out of prejudice.

The major determinant to judge if country is good or bad is to look at the security in all aspects (social, national, etc), lifestyle and comfort. Iran is currently is securest country in both Middle East and in the whole Euroasian region. If you look closely at the lifestyle of Iranian you will notice a very modern lifestyle far ahead the other countries and the comfort level is considerably good. It is unquestionable that poverty is an inevitable social phenomenon that exists all over the worlds. It also exist here, but thankfully Iran has a lot less homeless people than in Europe or the USA. The only reason why Iran is judged to be a bad country is due the its independence on the west and the nuclear program. For you to be able to judge Iran properly, you either have to make enough research, or simply pay it a visit

Iran: should be in the top 5. Literally, all these people are a bunch of morons. IF ONLY they knew their rights, IF ONLY they had traveled to some other countries, IF ONLY they could leave the prejudiced daydream of Persia behind (it's dead, now it's an Islamic hole called Iran, get over it people) they wouldn't be defending this country. Are you gay? publicly own to it and see what happens next. Atheist? I dare you to speak of it in the public. Wanna enter a stadium to watch football as a woman? Go ahead and see if you can take a step in. Don't want to wear hijab? I bet it's become your dream. Scared to go to that girl-guy party and drink some alcohol? I would be too with all these police arresting and the 70 lashes sentence just for a damn party. And oh! no international singer ever comes here to hold a concert. THE WORST. Also, wanna travel to some first world countries? All the best on getting that cursed visa. Sorry people but Iran sucks. FACE IT.

Iran is actually not what most people think. Developed nation, and people are quite friendly. While many bad things about traditions here, Persian culture is interesting and great. From food to music. Despite some bad traditional values, anyone from Iran should be proud of their heritage.

Good people, HORRIBLE government. Iran/Persia was much better 1500 years ago. And I'm Persian.

It is better than all countries in Asia

I am Iranian and proud, many mistake my country as Iraq, a place full of anger, hatred and war, but Iran is something else, we have an extrodinary culture and history, our people are so friendly, so don't judge a book by its cover, many have never heard of this country but are saying it's the most worst country to live in? oh ok, step back einstein, I go there every year and I promise you the food will make you drool, at the moment yes, we are having some difficulties and I think that when our king was in Iran it was a better place, but since Islam has taken over, yes it has changed, but it hasnt change our purity and beauty, so um please can you leave before saying this is one of the worse countries, at least we don't have concentration camps or other nonsense.

The most lovely and warm people in the world

Iran is not a good country but it is my country and I love it.

Simply, Iran is the safest country in Middle East and don't be uneasy about the safety of Iran if you're looking to come to this country and also Iranians are not like Arabs and their culture, their way of thinking, their way of clothing and so many other things is different from Arabic countries. But if you wanna catch more information about other situations in Iran you need to Google them.

The only real problem is the government, which is starting to slowly improve. Iranian lifestyle in major cities is very similar to that of western civilization, and it is far more modern than pretty much all other Islamic states. It's also very secure both militarily and cybernetically. It's also very rich, and has great art and architecture, and great history.

It is true Iran is full of ancient and interesting Persian cultural sights and beautiful mountains but since 1979 it has been destroyed by extreme beliefs that sadly have brought the country backwards materially and morally. The alternative might be worse though. It needs a completely secular government to make it an appealling place to live.

Best Place Ever! Don't put it on this list, by the way, have you ever gone here? - floridiancat

Not racist or anti-Muslim (I love Iranian peoplle, Muslims and accept everyone), but this country deserves to be higher. The Ayatollah is too hard to stand! His mentality is SO SICK. He makes it SO easy to be compared with Putin, Assad, ISIS, Other Terror Groups, Westboro Church, American Hate Groups, Other Corrupt Politicans/Dictators, etc. SICK people of modern time. Want to know why? Because they don't know how to interpret Islam as a TOLERANT and LOVING religion, hate the LGBT Community & other minorities as "abominations to the Islamic Republic" due to their close-mindedness and fear that Allah will "hunt them down if they don't" and their executions (YUCK! ) towards different people because they're "deviants". I DON'T HATE IranIANS. I strongly dislike the government and society that enjoys cruelty due to the "Ayatollah's" brainwashing.

I am actually really offended. Iranian bias or whatever, it's a great place. It's the government. - Ahrine

Iran is nice, but the Internet is terrible. I love it, because I love the restaurant, Baradaran in Tehran. It's amazing. I'm going there tonight and I think it will be awesome. But here are some bad things I listed: You HAVE to wear a hejab when you're like 10 or something and it's so hot out! Even at NIGHT. It's annoying. Come on, what Iran is trying to say is "Go die" but I still love it it's great, but there is no beaches in Tehran. COME ON JUST MAKE A NICE BEACH FOR US TO BE COLD WE DON'T WANT TO DIE! Iran should be last, or it shouldn't be here at all. It's a great country, really nice people.

Your idea is not true about Iran and Iranian people choose this method for living.

I think that Iran can be best in my point of view I ran is SO better than India or china an Pakistan and I am really crazy about Iran cause of their warm people and great behavior

Why is Iran here? It is a good place to live, the only problem with this country is the unemployment.

Iran is a nice country but they live in the 5th century.

Without oil they would live in the stone age.

Looks like a bunch of morons have taken what the media has said. Iran has no wars right now and people are nice. Media has totally slaughtered Iranian and other Middle Eastern cultures.

I Can Understand why Iran is lower than China.

It is a big false. Iran is more and more beautiful and powerful than west people know
