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

164 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Actually, some people here said crime happens in every 30 minutes in South Koreaa, but actually South Korea does not. Now this country is very peaceful so if your going to say something inaccurate in here, why don't you just shut your mouth? I'm sorry for my bad languages but please, South Korea rarley has a crime or 'bad things' happening in like 3 months or so. And um... how do you know if youv'e never been to South Korea? I'm warning you but don't believe absolutely fake stupid internet resources. I don't care if you do those stupid 'thumbs down' on mine because I will do on yours too. well if they are crazy people plus crazy government, the stupid person who wrote that is more crazy. I think you guys who believe fake internet resources are more stupid ill mannered, dumbo iddiots. well do as much as thumbs down if you dare. cause I don't care.

I don't think anyone should be judging the places they've never even been, and the Internet has so many lies, you can't tell if any things you see on there is actually true.

I find it funny how you people say that South Korea is rude while you people are a bunch more ruder right now. "Ugly". Seriously? This is the most inaccurate statement to be ever heard of for a country. Just because the mass population of the CELEBRITIES have plastic surgery doesn't mean the rest of the population has plastic surgery. It's true that there are many riots in South Korea though, very violent ones. That's what usually most dangerous around there, in my opinion. I just seriously cannot believe how ignorant most of you are to generalize the whole country by events only involving the few. Nobody said that this place is the best, but it certainly isn't the worst. Also, you people who say that Korea steals credit from what's not theirs, let me let you out on this... We all do. Other countries do this too, it's all about the people, but some countries make it into their culture to steal credit from other things. Quit believing things you randomly found on the internet, and stop ...more

Hate outsiders and and fear miscegenation especially in the US and New Jersey. If a South Korean asks what you think of mixing races and you say of course you don't believe in any of that thinking you're being nice or respectful of them, Wrong! They're threatening you and may go after your family and don't want you near their women. Sickening. Find most of them in the United States fitting nicely in Nazi/terror Bergen County New Jersey with those who can't afford Tenafly's hyper-segregated schools moving to Palisades Park where they make up over 50%.

Excuse me do you have a life, do you know who BTS is and exo, V is so cute?

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

166 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

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

168 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."

The people are constantly up to no good, even the smarter and decent looking ones. Is full, not by assassins, but by psychopaths. They wiill cut you in pieces alive and enjoy watching you scream of pain until death. Don't care if you are a kid, or an elder. Kidnapping is at #1, Corruption, drug Cartels, gangs and government is all one organization together. Don't even think about even looking at Honduras.

You seem to be describing the dump next door: Nicaragua. So Honduras is just like it? Is it contagious?

Honduras is beautiful there's beautiful beaches but if your on the ghetto side good luck

I herd Honduras has lots of crimes there and are full of smokers

Nicest people in the world, by far!

I know right! The person who said that people are mean in Canada is STUPID and WRONG.

171 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.

172 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read 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

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

174 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

175 Hong Kong

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

What is Sweden doing here? Best education, rich, amazingly beautiful, the poods was born there, nice people but it has a problem with people being ignorant, that's only one thing! Sweden is still the best country ever! I wish I can visit that place!

Actually it's Finland. Also a girl who pepper-sprayed a would be rapist got charged with having a weapon because pepper spray is illegal (I might be thinking of Denmark.) - Ketrikal

Sweden is the best country!

I'm only voting for this to bring the country which is/was #134 (New Zealand) further down the list :P

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..

Since the day I was born till now (24 years)
I still don't have something good to say about this country...the people here are very mean, racism is at its finest,the economy is a joke garbage everywhere, stupidity is a quality needed to be able living in this godforsaken place, you can't even manage to live a week after a month's pay...

178 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. It is known as the most peaceful country on earth.

How dare you?
Iceland is one of the best, if not THE best country in the world. So much better than America in a high number of ways. Yes, it had a financial crash a few years ago, but it has almost IMMEDIATELY recovered from that. America is almost completely bankrupt, and has been for years and years, no recovery. I love Iceland with all of my heart. So you met a few rude people... The majority of the people are the nicest people on earth. Iceland is a beautifully great country to live in, so don't let people tell you otherwise.

Iceland is beautiful. Sure, I'm American, but it's amazing there. Great weather, beautiful geysers, very peaceful, I could go on.

You do realize that according to this list Iceland was the best country to live in, there are only 183 countries. America was #52, he didn't say America was better - justinkaboom

179 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

180 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.
