Worst Countries to Live In

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Argentina Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

Great country! Always will be the most relevant country in South America!

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

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

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

For all those ignorant people in other develop countries is happening same things and even worst kids killing and raaped kids, racism, violence, a lots of homeless, what else you want if countries like yours are drugs depends and can not live without that, in Colombia we work really hard, we love our family and we even give love to other people that even do not know well, but in other places are so cold that not even a smile can give, war is a problem but anyways the entire world is living in it.

This country scares the living hell outta me! Why are these gunmen living in the forest threatening tourists? Can't these American soldiers go to war against these goons?

This of country is virtually a branch of heal, the 70% of its people are corrupted, thief, aggressive and ignorant, they are LOW people class, with money coming from the traffic of narcotics to the United States and Europe. Future communist country, its society is a complete MASS!

Always you are in danger with an unstable economy and society as well.

Medellín is my dream city. Can we all just say earth is the same without statistics and everything. The bad thing about having countries in this world is that people get butt hurt if you talk trash, like honestly stfu, and just call yourself humans and not nationalities.

43 Albania Albania Albania is a southeastern European country that is slightly larger than Maryland and near Montenegro, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, and Greece. The capital is a city called Tirana. Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. ...read more.

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

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

Albania is the best country ever! People there are very generous and very kind. Albania is a place full of ancient history and delicious meals. Everyone visiting Albania was amazed by its beauty and different cultures from the north and to the south. So should you visit Albania? Definitely one of the best countries ever.

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

This place sucks so bad

44 Poland

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

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

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

Too many ponies

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

- Alizia

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

Come one! Their population is like 800 people, and their country is the size of a 16 hole golf course! Give them a break! - Heyo_Simba

48 Hungary Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

Net tax, road tax, anti-Semitism, slow but sure erasing of the freedom of the press, protests everywhere, crappy conditions in schools/hospitals, the list goes on and on.

Certainly not a Syria or anything like that, but still. Don't come here.

Very pessimistic people and hate their surrounding countries.

It's not a bad place in most parts. My dad worked there for a bit over a year, no complaints. But I don't know to be honest anything about the country otherwise, hope all's well over there

Why not in top 5? The government is a fascist one. The worst European country along with Bulgaria, Vatican, Italy

It is so Dangerous Believe me

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

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

51 Uzbekistan Uzbekistan Uzbekistan is a dry, landlocked country . It is one of two doubly landlocked countries in the world (that is, a country completely surrounded by landlocked countries in Central Asia . ...read more.

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

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

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.

The best country to live in because it has the sweetest
treats also because they are respectful, responsible, kind and helpful people.

3rd world country full of scammers, a shade lighter than Cameroonians but just as uneducated, most of them would steal your granny's teeth while she was sleeping, o the foods crap as well, what I don't understand with these countries is they cry poverty and say they need food, why don't these people just open there mouths? plenty of flies about!

53 Greece Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

I have lived for most of my life in Greece and came to North America twenty years ago simply because I was seeking a better future. Yes the economy in Greece is horrible to say the least, however one must compare apple to apples. In North America you live to work, you don't have many friends because the standards of living doesn't allow it and our lives are so busy that you have very little time to even count your blessings. Some may say, why don't you go back then? Well it isn't easy, after you developed a family and have kids and especially now with the economical situation. I can assure you though that if one puts as many hrs of work as we do here and sacrifice as many continental things as we do here then the life in Greece will offer you much more joy, better and friendlier people and weather and places that one can never dream of

Yeah, nice that people in Greece are barely working, but they did it on the back of other countries (Germany etc) where they do work. They received a load of money, both in loans and gifts.

It's easy to have a relaxed lifestyle when others work for you.

It's also despicable. No respect.

Why the hell is Greece on this list?!?! Sure it has financial difficulties but compared to a lot of other countries, it's pretty good. It's beautiful and has a long history. The people there can be arrogant but they're still kind people unlike some people like Americans who I found while on my holiday to America very rude. There are countries like North Korea however, which are basically definition of hell.

P.S. WHY IS Greece HIGHER ON THIS LIST THAN Macedonia?!?!? That place shouldn't even be called a country and the people who live there are retarded idiots who stole from Greek history. Macedonia originally was a REGION not a country. Stupid ignorant slav bastards...

Going through a terrible time right now, but not a bad country. Great climate, natural beauty, history, culture and resilient and generous people. Yes Greece has problems-economy, political corruption, but they are hardly the only country to ever face these difficulties. They are dealing with dual crisis at the moment with the financial one, (yes their own fault) and the refugee crisis, (not their fault), but they are still not the worst country be far.

Greece is full of hairy smelly people who’s one claim to life is to believe they are decendents of Alexander the Great

55 Somaliland

I am a somalilander I would say somaliland is a very nice peaceful country but you get paid so little even if you have the nicest job but it has no corruption and some of the people are friendly and some are very very very very mean and jealous and the worst thing about somaliland is that they stare at people

Never herd of this country.I'm going to look it up right now!

Somaliland isn't a country, but I hope it becomes one soon. - Heyo_Simba

WHY THE HELL is this country here! There's NO ' reason to hate
This country. And I'm not Spanish!

Spain is the reason why South America is a disaster.

Chaotic traffic, constant shouting, disregard for any kind of courtesy, terrible service in about 90% of business. Really bad luck for latin america they had these people conquer them. Horrible country!

WHY IS SPAIN HERE? Spain is a great place. The crisis was a bad event but well. - talanartemis

60 Haiti Haiti

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.

After Hurricane Mathew and the 2010 earthquake, I would not set foot in Haiti. - TopTenHaters
