181 Monaco Monaco Monaco, officially the Principality of Monaco, is a sovereign city-state and microstate, located on the French Riviera in Western Europe. V 1 Comment
182 Luxembourg Luxembourg

This country is the 5 best country in the world stupid

183 Qatar Qatar Qatar, officially the State of Qatar, is a sovereign country located in Southwest Asia, occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Worst country. It should be number 1 in terms of human rights vioation. The day this country is done with oil, it will be poorest country with mindless people.

It's a beautiful country and all countries have something bad about them

Best country ever, good prices, good people and salary!

Qatar should not be on the list! Even if I have to admit it has its problems, it's still a very, very rich country! It's even richer than Germany or France! Right now, Qatar has a very good economy, it cannot be a "bad place to live in"! A lot of people would really love to live in there. It's absolutly not the worse country to live in

The city is safe and fair they just have lots of oil and money and people are jelous because of that In Qatar it's one of the most safest country's and I don't no why Qatar is fourty on this list I mean the hole Islamic itself is dangerous but in Qatar it's safe for anyone even women like if you believe me

184 Ethiopia Ethiopia Ethiopia, officially known as the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, is a sovereign state located in the Horn of Africa.

So wrong. Lots of history, culture. Great place to visit the air is so clean and the weather is unbelievably soothing. People are very peaceful except for the politics and all the biased news you hear on the media. There is poverty but its economy is growing fast. And the ladies are so hot

Ethiopia is one of the greatest countries in the world,
One of the oldest countries in the world, and rich with history.
Great coffee there. Ethiopia is one of the 2 countries in Africa that have not been colonized. Wonderful weather. Ethiopia has one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It's just amazing there.

Ethiopia is Beautiful,
A great country, nice people, amazing coffee. Amazing churches. Nice weather. Ethiopia has a rich history and culture.

Not in my top 10

185 Singapore Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

I don't understand why everyone hates Singapore.
The no-littering laws makes Singapore a better environment! I am sure you guys would not want to live in a dirty stinking place!
Chewing gum is banned because of the people's fault! If people were more considerate and not stick it everywhere, it would not be banned!
It's the strict laws that help Singapore become such a successful country!
Singapore isn't racist! If Singapore is, why is there an Indian in the parliament? Muslims choose to go to their religious schools, so we can't force them!

The guy who added this to the list either never heard of Singapore, or is completely stupid

I love Singapore

Singapore is the country which is very clean in the world

186 England England

England has been ruined by 13 years of Labour Government (1997-2010). Even though the current Con-Lib Coalition Government is no better, The Labour Party wasted so much money on failed projects, too much regulation, bureaucracy on failed public services, their own expenses, which all contributed to the tripling of the national debt (from £300 billion to over £1 trillion).

Most Labour MPs have voted on the following things (source TheyWorkForYou website):

(1) Voted for slowing the rise in rail fares.

(2) Voted very strongly for Labour's anti-terrorism laws (aka "Totalitarian state").

(3) Voted for laws to stop climate change.

(4) Voted very strongly for introducing ID cards.

(5) Voted against a transparent Parliament.

(6) Voted against fewer MPs in the House of Commons.

(7) Voted against academy schools (therefore voted against non-governmental controlled state schools).

(8) Voted very strongly for university ...more

Guys I Am From England, I Feel Offended To Your Comments! Just Cause It Rains Who Cares! It Is Home For Me, It Is Cozy. Lucky Enough To GET Snow. The Seasons Are Great, Where I Live Now Has No Seasons.

England was ruined by the last Labour Party (1997-2010) by introducing uncontrolled mass immigration making major cities/towns demographically and culturally unrecognisable. They also dumbed down schools, destroyed standard of care in hospitals, and undermined Police Officers that caused more violent crime. They created high unemployment, created housing shortages, created gang culture, materialism, Segregated Islamic communities, squandered too much public money, and used Political Correctness to label their opponents Racists, Bigots, Homophobes, Islamophobes, Elitists, Tory Scum etc.

England is just grim and very grey. No job, very depressing and oppressive right wing government and a lot of obesity.

187 Bulgaria Bulgaria Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, was established in 681 ad. and since then it never changed it's name, which makes it one of the oldest countries in Europe. Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, ...read more.

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.

Dirty place, horrible I broke my nose over there

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.

Jobs are underpaid, people are asses, and if you manage to achieve something they try to bring you down to their level. Most of the people there struggle with Depression. It may not be a war torn country, but your life still isn't wroth anything.

188 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

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!

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.

The government completely destroyed Donetsk and blames it on the people who want independence by calling them "terrorists"! It's disgusting! They kill almost everyone they see. I left my city of Sloviansk and went to live in Russia because I know I'm going to die if I stay, the Ukrainian army will kill me and blame it on the people of the Donetsk People's Republic.

I am Russian and I really hate Russia because it is attacking Ukraine!
I will never back again to Russia now I live in lovely please called San-Francisco!

I was born in this country and I want to get out of it as fast as possible.
Why? Politicians are the worst possible and everything is ruled by politics, even as an actor you won't play in movies if you don't have friends in politics. Businesses get bankrupt as fast as they appear. Kids are completely dumb, with no respect for anyone (Most of them). Swearing is somewhat normal even in public. Gypsies AREN'T Romanians, they only decided to invade us and made us the worst image to foreigners else and now people think Gypsies are Romanians. Most people in Romania try to steal from you or demonstrate they are better than you when they aren't. People here are selfish and our schools became almost useless because we may have the same educational system since the communist era. Teachers are corrupt and exams can be bought easily if you are rich of course. High taxes and low salaries. Communism destroyed this country a lot. We sell all what's nice in our country to strangers, strangers are ...more

It is a naturally beautiful country but very run-down and desperately needs paints and road paving. The feral dogs (and street children) and depressing and dangerous!

The stray dogs are very creepy and dangerous and do not forget about the gypsy... They are just everywhere... And do not forget about the roads..

Most homophobic country in eastern europe.

190 Angola Angola

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.

The worst place to be born. Dirty streets corruption is the way of living

Basically the whole world is on this list

191 Vietnam Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

Their food is amazing, but it is NOT safe. I'm telling you this: I watched several YouTube videos and it all told me that they were using blood from animals that contained very dangerous bacteria to use in food. They used a very harmful chemical to turn rotten meat into good-looking meat. There is NO air conditioning, the weather is ALWAYS hot, traffic is terrible, and bridges have a 99% of causing accidents. Bridges in Vietnam only have one road and cars have to go back AND forth on that one road. Yeah, right, that TOTALLY wouldn't cause an accident. Not. Some people are amazing and nice, but some people are just downright horrible and greedy for money. I'm Vietnamese myself but I live in the USA and I'm grateful to. I can't BELIEVE that USA is in the top 100. Vietnam should be in the top 10. I'm not saying that Vietnam people are horrible, but I just want to say that Vietnam is just unsafe and I don't suggest going there.

Vietnamese peoples are friendly, stop telling lies and they are not like the Chinese at all

Vietnam is wonderful country because it has so many friendly people.

Where do I start!? I'm British but want other out! Worked to death for nothing. Tax tax tax on everything. Tax for using the road, tax on your income, tax on everything you buy, tax for living in your house, tax for buying your house, tax on everything you owned when you die... Ridiculous cost of living, ridiculous fuel prices, ridiculous house prices. Old and poor people starving and freezing to death, no jobs or training opportunities and university made accessible only to the rich. Stupid government that sends our forces half way round the world to fight illegal wars. Foul Mouthed bigots, racists and thugs everywhere. Grey gloomy skies, long dark winters... Why would anybody want to live here?

The United Kingdom isn't that safe

1) It is forbidden to place a stamp with the queens head on it upside down!

2) No dying in the House of Parliament, CRAZY

3) Un Contentious Because If You Have The Plague Your Not Aloud In A Taxi!

4) The Queen Is Awesome, But They Are The Boss Of 16 Commonwealth Countries Including - New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Etc

5) Tax, Tax, Tax 1000x TAX!

6) A lot of CRazY Rules (read the first 3 for the rules)

7) Expensive Countries (Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland)

Worst country for people who are from different countries. Right now so many talented people are returning to their own countries and the british are insinuating that all the foreigners are stealing the jobs yet they can't get a job to save their own skin. They're so stereotypical and racist. Children are learning this as if it is a good thing yet schools ain't doing crap about it. They're saying all black people who have been to Africa or have come from Africa now have ebola which isn't funny at all! This is such a SHlT country which I don't recommend to anybody! - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

I'm from the UK and sometimes I just wanna get away from my school and family life, build a boat, and sail it to Canada - pineliek

I always feel worried whenever I want to travel home to see my parents and relatives. It is really a shame when people asked where am I coming from... Which I never feel proud to say out loud... Corruption everywhere... Crime level only up not down, gun shooting everywhere. When my friends asked about attractions in my home country, I have no choice but to tell them the truth hoping to save their lives by not visiting to this country, I need to be honest to them just like how they treated me. I hope I could move my parents and relatives abroad on day so we could have a better living. Shame to be Malaysian.

I love this country, but I hate the government

I am from Sabah borneo a very beautiful state where the Mt Kinabalu located. I love my country, nothing can change my nationality but the whole world is eyeing on this developing country as the most unsafe and corrupted country. Too many scandals. You will never feel it unless you live as who we are.

We love this country, but we hate the government

Hong Kong is a nice place. There is no crime, Everyone works hard for a good life. It is friendly too

I'm from Hong Kong and live there... the life is overall, quite good compared to most countries. Though the government...ugh...don't even mention the political stuff with China.

Why are there so many places on this list that are not actual countries?!

Hong Kong is a city, but I think it should be a country - Heyo_Simba

The United States is by no means perfect. There is social and economic inequality, racism is still pervasive, and there are many Americans who live in poverty without adequate health care, just to name a few domestic problems. But to say the US is in the top 10 of the worst countries to live is simply wrong. Since the mid-20th century, the US has been the most prosperous country that has ever existed. There is a reason people come to the United States from all over the world. The US offers the best higher education and the best medical care in the world. Why else would people around the world with the means send their children to American universities or seek treatment in American hospitals? Why else would literally millions of people want to come to the US to seek a better future for their families? It bothers me tremendously that the vast wealth of the country is not distributed more equitably, but there is no denying that the US offers tremendous opportunities. The US also has ...more

I live in America and this is what I see: We are one of the most medically advance countries but we don't have universal healthcare. We are the richest country but our poverty rate is astronomical. We are a melting pot of cultures but only those who are white can avoid discrimination. We have some of the most brilliant politicians am leaders but our government is ripe with corruption. Our quality of life is some of the best on the planet but we take more anti-depressants than any other country. We welcome all people but only a few are accepted. We kill a thousand terrorist but we ruin the lives of many more civilians. We promote peace but export 60% of the worlds arms. We stress the importance of home-grown businesses but more than 90% of our goods are imported. We are free but we are slaves to the propaganda. We have free speech but many of us fear saying what we think. We are told to make our own choices but being homosexual is wrong. And so on... This is a picture of what America ...more - Auf29482

America is the worst. period. I'm surprised that more people haven't betrayed such a hole. america has taken our freedom and thrown it out the window with FORCING us to do this and that. our education system is the worst in the world BY FAR, and I've grown up with teachers giving us our assignments and then going home. my math professor in college was constantly drunk off his ass. obama cares more about his social appearance more than the country. congress only cares about money, and does everything it can to screw us over, and for what reason? FOR FUN. where other countries make a decent amount of money, here nobody gets paid more than minimum wage unless they work for the most corrupted government in the world, or are a ceo. if you don;t have a college degree, you WILL NOT get a job. there's more homeless people than there are people with jobs or families, and the government does NOTHING about it, going as far as making LAWS that criminalize helping them. racism is through the roof, ...more

Japan is a country with a very good technology, why is it on the list? The culture is interesting, Tokyo is a fantastic place... why would people hate Japan? Sure, it has a dark, sad past (like a lot of other countries) but right now, it's peaceful and nice! Also, the Japanese women are so stylish, it's cool! And Japanese people are very polite and they work hard, it's good

There are a lot of natural disasters. For instance, earthquakes and tidal waves

Not only safety can be the best to live. I'd lived there for 18 years and I will tell you why you shouldn't live in Japan. Everything is expensive but they are washed-brain don't know the real value. Also if you think to find job in Japan, it's difficult to find especially for Asians. When I worked, I was doscriminated and spread my fake gossips. Their quite racist but they didn't realise that. Also the boss using force to labours as the result they can't go back their home at the time. Many of them can sleep 3 hours is not unusual. Here the issue of discrimination is serious. Age Education Sex Race Hometown and so on. Once you got looked down, you can realise how difficult to live in. Also bullying is normal here many young people suicide and now majority of population is Around 40. No future for young people.

If Japan doesn't exist there will be no weeaboos. - Lose

199 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

I am an American but I learned Norwegian in only two years. Yes it is a hard language and I hope you decide to learn about Norway. Norway is a great country.

The only thing bad about Norway is because it's really close to the North Pole, so the sun never sets in the summer and the moon never goes away in the winter.

How Norway came here in the list. Its more than a heaven can offer. With one of the lowest crime rates and no fundamentalism. I live in Norway and it's the best country in the world.

Canada is better then norway.

What is New Zealand doing here that not bad

Bullsh#t I live in NZ its one of the most beautiful places in the world, how can you write this much crap.

Beautiful Country, friendly people, certainly not the worst place to live. Not a bad government by world standards. Unfortunately way too much recreational drug and alcohol use, but at least your unlikely to be shot at for simply walking down the street.

New Zealand 🇳🇿 is awesome 👏 and I don't even live there
