62 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

Beautiful country. People are friendly and there is a beautiful nature

Belarus is a good country!

I think Belarus is a nice country. I'd love to go on a mission there.

Dude this is already on the list and it's spelled wrong here

Um... isn't Libya already on the list?

Lybia is so bad they aren't even allowed in any continents, and they aren't even on any map. It's like the Island from LOST

Never knew there's a country called Lybia. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Come on! Malawi is a cute country!

Ya damn its good


66 Armenia Armenia

Kim Kardashian is from here so... I HATE THE COUNTRY! That felt good to get out!

I wish I could live there, it is the best best country in the world. One of the most historic country in the world. The comments and opinions of those idiot people who don't know about Armenia and say that they are rude and... are not important at all. Maybe there are rude Armenians but not all of them. Every one who meets an Armenian, says that they are very warm people and they are lovely. - 0-0-0-0

They think Russia would care if it was invaded by neighboring countries. The reason? Because Russia has a base there. God morning dumb Russia also has bases in Ukraine lmao. They burn Turkish flags in protests. Turkeys response? Not giving a care at all. Most provinces of Turkey are bigger than Armenia. There is no reason at all to annex it. Their national mountain isn't even inside their borders they only get to see it from a distance lol. Turkey should put giant Turkish flags on top of the mountain so Armenians can get all butt hurt when they look at it roflmao. The border blockade messes up their landlocked economy. Very low GDP. They still think they can invade Kars. I sometimes just can't.. By the way I'm not even nationalist I actually want Turkey to have good relations with Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Georgia etc but not Armenia. And I'm neutral about the Armenian genocide. I don't claim it happened or didn't happen

I love those people who know about Armenia and they love Armenia - 0-0-0-0

67 Nepal Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia.

I am an European citizen and live in Switzerland but I most say Nepal is very beautiful country with lots of cultural heritages.. People are fun loving, caring, helpful.. They are much more happier than us.. The country may be little bit poor but the people are rich enough than us.. They have every facilities available comparing to European countries.. They have a very beautiful natural resources.. The Himalayas are beautiful.. It's like a paradise on earth.. People seems to be happy and cheerful.. In America, Europe or some other develop country people may die if they don't work to hunger but in Nepal life is not so hard.. Living expenses is very cheap..

Nepal is the best country in the world. People are just jealous of this incredible country. Don't say Nepal is full of pullution because it is not a lot. Tourists and dhotis are the people who throw all the junks. Earthquake is nature not because this country is bad. This is peaceful. Don't say this country is bad without visiting everywhere. People are so respectful. Just because of some people are unpolite doesn't mean everyone is bad. Think before you say something. Give me the reason why it is bad. Nothing is bad. The country is not bad other tourist make it bad. Say nice things. Don't say things that you heard from people that is fake. Say something that you saw in real life.

Nepal is very beautiful country to live on.. Everyone seems to be happy, friendly, caring and blablabla.. I have been there twice.. The scenario is mind blowing.. It's like a heaven.. I live in Europe but I found most European and American travelling to Nepal cause of its cheap living cost and wonderful people.. Some people say Nepal is poor but I don't believe it.. They are much richer than us.. Their heart is rich enough comparing to other nations..

Whoever says Nepal is dangerous just because of the earthquake is stupid. They can't prevent it. Other than that Nepal is beautiful. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

68 Belgium Belgium

Why is Belgium on the list? This country ain't that bad, it's nice and peaceful

Belgium is not racist anymore. It's a great place to visit with all the unique cafes and shops.

Would I remind all of you that Belgium has blood on its hands when it comes to racism? All you need to look at is is their history (The Belgian Congo, enough said).

This country does not actually exist.

69 El Salvador El Salvador El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.

People get dismembered every day. Gang problem.

You can't just live in peace in this horrible country! 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.

"The lack of education, the daily quota of people murdered, and the inefficiency of national institutions, are some of the main problems of this country. El Salvador's greatest disadvantage? Its people. Most Salvadorans are proud of their lack of culture and manners."

It is one of the most beautiful country in world with population of good citizens. Environment loving nation.
With so many monuments, incredible history and culture.
The people who voted for this may not have lived in France. IT is really
Beautiful nation. There is cleaniness everywhere.

Wonderful country.

So various landscapes, there some villages which look to be villages of medieval tales.

France is like a dream, we had the chance to go to Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora and Marquesas Islands. Besides the fact that these places are simply marvelous, splendid, is so amazing to know that it is part of France.
Here you have among the most beautiful coral reefs (UNESCO) and gorgeous beaches in the world.

France is so different, has a so rich culture and history and so peaceful areas to live in, it is the bucolic country.

And if you need you BBQ, no problems, here you can eat everything you want.

It is No 2 for McDonalds in the world after USA.

It's true that French are not the best in spoken English, but they are not the worst compare to some countries around.

And most of people speak only their own native language, so it's something understandable.

We plan to live there at least half of the time.

I lived in France for 5 years and it was fabulous, the French are the best!

My friend said that the pollution in Paris is BAD

71 Chile Chile Chile, officially the Republic of Chile, is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

I think Chile has been doing things very well for a long time ago until today. They have built one of the less corrupts governments in latin america, they have a pretty steady economy, and have grown in a way no other latin American country have done until today. Their image is getting stronger day by day. I totally disagree with the rude comments that were written here. Chileans are nice, welcoming and good looking people and they have pretty nice places to visit. From cool skiing tracks in the south to a huge arid desert up in the north. Cheers from an Argentinian.

High vulnerability to natural disasters, specially earthquakes. Flood of sea due to global warming will have a significant impact on Chile's narrow surface in the future.

Just one word, TRAITORS!

Why is Chile on this list? It's a pretty nice country, with beautiful beaches, great cities and also cool neighbours... I'd like a lot to travel in Chile.

I hope AIDS, Ebola & Civil Wars wipe out the entire population of Sierra Leone. They are sub-human, materialistic, race/religious baiting, lying, sexist pigs. Do not give Aid to this country.

How is Australia 17 and Sierra Leone 103

70? Should be 3 behind Somalia and "best" korea. Only country to have average life expectancy below 50 years and so many diseases.

Sierra leone should be first

73 Cameroon Cameroon

Corruption and embezzlement is the order of the day and marginalization of the minority Anglophone Cameroonians

Love the tropical rain forest, varieties of climates, so fresh in some part, cold, mild, sunny, and hot in others, charismatic people, love the topography of some areas, lots of urban and rural development, very attached also to their ancestoral and traditional culture, no civil, rape, and few criminal activities which is common very every where, a stable and a dictator president, peaceful politics, well organize state capital, not to forget that is the most invested African Countries now for foreign investors due to its bless natural materials as everything is available in the country also due to its stable governments.

Wolly wogs.

Who ever said Stop giving aid to Cameroon, or any country in West Africa. 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 hope Boko Haram takes over Cameroon and gives them hell. I hope you go to hell because ima cameroonian and u suckk!

74 Mexico Mexico

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.

Mexico should not be on the list. Yes, there are some bad places (most of those bad places are close to the USA border), but there is also a lot of very nice places with amazing beaches, beautiful women, cool shops, and all that good stuff. I think the Mexican culture is very interesting, and so are the celebrations. Mexico is the country I would like the most to visit, it seems like a very cool place. I would love to party in a Mexican club!

I hail from Mexico, and Political corruption is off the charts: Capitulation to drug cartels and other such terrorists is killing it from the inside out.

It is one of, if not the, most ignorant country in the planet

It has Ciudad Juarez, Acupolco, Chihuahua and Curnevaka. They are some of the worst places in the world.

76 Indonesia Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years, the country gained independence in 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages include Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian), Sundanese and Minangkabau. ...read more.

Yup Indonesia is a really nice country, but only for tourist. Indonesia isn't as good as what people think. The government corrupts, thieves and rapists everywhere. Indonesia might be a really good country for Muslim but not for other religion. I am Indonesian and I am Catholic but 3/4 of the citizen is Muslim. And half of them DO NOT respect other religion. I'm not making it sounds bad but this is how I feel living in Indonesia. If you are going to Indonesia for vacation, I genuinely suggest you to come because Indonesia to be honest is a really nice country but If you are planning to live here, you better think twice. But I believe that Indonesia has gotten better lately, I'm proud to be Indonesian!

I was born in Indonesia and have lived in America, England, Japan, Australia and Singapore. There is nothing good about this country at all compared to those I have lived in. Everyone is so corrupt, thieves by night, robbers by day, rapists and molesters at every opportunity. It is impossible to take public transport or walk on the street without getting harassed. If you are a woman, the men there are like hyenas whistling at you and throwing you dirty glances. Government is so corrupt, taxpayers money never end up reinvested in infrastructures. The city of Jakarta is a cesspool of filth and vices. You can see people defecating into the open river and children digging through rubbish dumps filled with maggots. It is also the most populated Muslim country in the world having Muslim as a minority in EU countries alone is a problem! Imagine Indonesia! As an Indonesian, I advise you to stay away from this country. If you intend to visit, please bang your head against the wall so you knock ...more

Most all of the governments sucks...
They didn't really care about their country...
They keep corrupting our money, and used it for their own sake...

But guys, if we talk about the scenery...
Is kinda nice in here, especially if tourist want to enjoy our beautiful beach. But the problem is, most all of our capital city was crowded by domestic tourist. So, that makes the country road feels so tight.

Well, I think that's all my opinion about this country...
Oh wait, one more thing!
Internet Connections kinda sucks, especially when you lived in suburbs. The government keeps make a same promise to improve it, but they never fix it.

Indonesian censorship making me want to move from Indonesia. Reddit, Netflix, Vimeo etc were blocked at Indonesia even game are blocked

77 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

Serbia is a good country. Don't fall victim to the media.

Serbia is a good country my grandparents were born here and if you like ham you will like them

Discrimination. I get called retarded almost everyday because of my age, weight and opinion and I feel bad! Plus terrible education system and terrible government. Plus they have 0 respect towards people from other countries.

Please, don't listen to the trolls with horrible grammar, it's nothing special here!

Serbia sucks they do not belong to europe. They all story is stealing from other countries. One of the worst countries ever full of propaganda and corruption. Not only they racist but they hate they neighbors as well. So should you go to serbia? Hell no they are the most low minded persons you will ever find.

Worst place in the planet.

Czech Republic is the best country some cool facts are that womans took over men in 1996

Czech Republic is pretty cool, I think. I'd like to visit it.

It has a failing economy with residents who have lost hope in their country who feel like they are heading nowhere.

So, tell me... why is this 76 and not 200 or something? This country is awesome, maybe u guys voted for it because they don't speak english YOU RACISTS

79 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Germany has nice people, with a wonderful language. English people (specially from USA) tend to insult German people, jealousy, pretty much.

There's no reason to hate Germany, You hate it because of Hitler? That's stupid, the USA army is FAR worse tan Stalin and Hitler combined.

Oh, and by the way, English came from German.

Yes, Germany is the worst place to live. You will pay huge taxes, earn much less than you can earn in the US, medicine is miserable, MILLIONS or rules for everything, you can't even take a breath without thinking that you may violate some law. Everything is expensive considering super low salaries. They are still living in stone age and doing everything with paper letters. Mobile Internet is super slow and expensive and you pay 5 Euro or more for 1 gigabyte (! ). Very depressive people and poor weather around the year. For anything in Germany you have to sign a contract, even if you just want to go to fitness for a day. They also hate foreigners and you can read this in the comment section on German news websites... I can actually tell thousands of other bad things about Germany, but there are so many...

Germany's not the worst place to live in, but I have lived there for 1 year and I can name some cons about their people. The German boys are really annoying and keep mocking my accent (I'm Singaporean). The girls are just as bad and want everything to be their way. But the again, I'm in grade 8, so people my age might just naturally be idiots. Anyway, I think the worst country to live in would be North Korea

No one needs to know your race or grade. It's actually pretty irrelevant for anyone to say that without anyone asking. So yeah. No one asked you but good point. - SanicHeghog123
