The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.


This is garbage. All you stupid Europeans and Canadians voted for this because your vision of an American citizen is a gun crazed obese middle-aged man with a million tattoos eating McDonald's on a park bench. I will admit, the US, like everything in the world, is far from perfect, but are we really worse than Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, and Russia? I don't think so. Sure, some of our laws are outdated, like how we have terrible gun safety laws, but our Constitution was written by racist property-owning white guys 250 years ago, so that sort of makes sense. We also have a very diverse population. I live near a university, and every time I am there, I hear about a dozen languages. We also have incredible racial diversity, too. Sure, this country is very Christian, but there is also a strong Jewish population, especially in the cities, and there are also a lot of Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Humanists, and even Atheists in this country. Our Constitution, ...more

I'm a Canadian and I think this country is alright, but not the exact worst. There are like 10 countries I can list that are worse or even more! - MissRWBY202

The U.S. is a shining beacon of democracy for it's citizens in many but not all respects, but it is an aggressive and self-serving bully toward all other nations, specifically non-wealthy nations.

If you're the leader of an impoverished state in our hemisphere and even hint at initiating land reform, workers rights, health care or literacy programs, expect to be kidnapped, tortured and murdered. A subservient neo-Nazi puppet regime will be installed, and will be prepared to use terrorism and murder to protect U.S. interests, usually for bananas, oil and/or rubber.

Don't believe me? Don't take my word for it, then, just ask Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Grenada, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile or Argentina.U.S. backed guerrilla mercenaries and death squads killed over 150,000 in Central America in the 1980's alone.

Worse still, this nation has the nerve to reprimand other nations (of which in many occasions ...more

Some might say that North Korea is worse. It is indeed worse to live in, in fact it is the absolutely worst country to live in. But it isn't the worst country, generally speaking. I'd say, America is just as bad, if not more. Why? Because of what it's done to the world. "Did someone order freedom? Sure, we're coming with our Tomahawks and F-16's to kill you all! " < the brief history of the warfare of America.

Yeah, maybe America has some beautiful landscapes and similar, but you can't compare its beauties and virtues to its mockeries and shortcomings. For example, to counter those beautiful and peaceful landscapes, you've got Baltimore or Detroit.

I am a Serbian. A lot of the people reading this might know what happened in the year of 1999. To cut it short, we got into a fuss with Albanians on the south of our country, Kosovo. It was for a reason. The KLA, Kosovo Liberation Army, was a bunch of Albanian terrorists, rapists, and murderers. Even Robert Gelbard, the ...more

Well there are good and bad people in all countries, but everything is absolutely ridiculous. The government is run by rich people who do not care whatsoever of the condition of the citizens. Still lives up to its incredibly racist past, with literal nazis not even afraid to show their faces anymore. Old people ruined the economy, leaving college as your only form of hope for a better life but many people just become jobless and in debt. Its due to the high costs of college. The minimum wage is not enough to live on. Tf you get into an accident and you live paycheck to paycheck, you are going to be homeless. So many hate crimes and racist people, and people on both sides of the political spectrum are troublesome (on the far ends). There is a HUGE divide in the country, and people will literally kill you if you have a different political opinion. No joke. People say theirs freedom of religion, freedom of press, but people here hate Muslims and its troubling when your president calls ...more

The USA has done more bad than good. Its hard to feel safe as a BME in general, America hasn't learnt from history and still champions the racism that was part and parcel of American society back in the day. And don't get me started on gun laws! And I suppose this all wasn't enough and the USA decided it would destroy other countries and peoples lives and livelihoods. I was terribly upset at 9/11. But MUCH MORE damage has been done after that because Americans thought they would fight the "terrorist", so they became the terrorist and in turn created more terrorists. Before that, there used to be bomb blasts, attacks and yes, terrorists existed. But in my days I remember the blames would be on the IRA, every single time. No mention of Muslims, and Islam.. Its as if USA had an agenda all along to tarnish, America is nothing but a big bully.

I don't blame them for putting the U.S as #1. As a Canadian I was like why the hell do other countries always hate on our southern neighbor? Than I found out why. Americans are nosy they only care about themselves they are overpopulated they have terrible healthcare don't care about their people and many many more. Canada is better than this garbage dump known as America. They are racist and hate any other country that can do things better. They are crazy people and they are Although I only been to Washington the people their were very friendly towards me but still I heard that a lot of other Americans are mean. They hate on others for being better than them and are always chanting U.S.A at the Canadian border because they are jealous. I would say go to hell you. This is Canada. And I would chant can-na-the can-na-the to them and then say go to hell you are all jealous.

You say we are TERRIBLE. But, look who's insulting a country with stupid stereotypes? Some Americans are fat, some Americans are arrogant, and some Americans are racist. It's like saying all British have bad teeth, or the French love cheese. Besides, we have good intentions. We need to learn when some things have gone too far. At least most have a lot of pride in our country. We have many mistakes and problems that we need to fix, but so does every other country on this list.

Okay everyone listen to why I think it is #2 on this list. Firstly they tax the poor and never the rich. If you are sick dying living in the USA don't have a lot of money you are screwed. Also they destroyed countries like Lybia Iraq and Afghanistan. They drain the world of it's natural resources and like to think they are the only country on earth and only chant USA because they are extremely jealous and sad that they can not afford to move to Canada so they act like jerks. Also half the world if not most hate the USA with a passion. America's only buddies are Canada Israel and maybe Britain. Americans think that the government could invade Canada whenever they feel like it while than we will get help from The British the Australians and all of the allies. Australia is Canada's true Brother. USA is Canada's adopted brother.

Honestly, I do not understand why the United States is so high up on the list. Of course, I understand that the U.S. has made lots of mistakes in the past, but I also know that they have improved from their mistakes. Many people voting the U.S. as the worst country are attaching many false and hurtful stereotypes to their arguments. There is lots of tension with racial inequality, homosexuality, etc. However, that is not the case with all Americans. When you generalize all Americans as barbaric and stupid, that means ALL Americans. That means you are generalizing all activists that are advocating for good causes, people with good hearts, and people that well may be victims of the stereotypes that YOU are spreading. Seriously, think before you speak. The U.S. is made up of many different cultures and nationalities which makes it very diverse. Of course there will be conflicting views and inequality. However, I am not saying that the U.S. is a great country, they have made many mistakes ...more - ryan01px2019

Listen to me jerks (I can't insult you worse on the internet) I have lived in the U. S a majority of my life it has safe parts and horrendous parts but you are mostly judging us by our movies and T.V. shows I respect other countries but this hugely makes me mad goodbye jerks.

I live in the United States and it is hell. Citizens are idiots and lawmakers are idiots. We let ISIS happen. We make the stupidest deals in history with other countries. All of our food is artificial. Introverts are discriminated like Jews in Nazi Germany. People are abnormally greedy. Exposure to so many chemicals (pretty much our food) leads to endless disease and disability. Our allies no longer trust us. Our enemies no longer fear us. The American Dream is a complete myth. This country SUCKS.

I have absolutely no patriotism for this hellhole. If I can ever get out of here, I will. (Maybe even first illegal immigrant from US to Mexico if I have to). Then I will just watch as failed politicians give nuclear weapons to the terrorists... - UglyBull

I'm from the usa myself but there are messed up people there

I was going to vote for America but then I saw the comment below. It makes a very good point that America is more than the stereotypes that they have been stuck with. Despite a couple of incorrect facts (you're forgiven! ) I don't think that America should be so high. Sincerely a British man who is relieved to see that Britain is nowhere near the top

Yeah were the worst that's why the rest of the world sticks their hand out every time they have a problem. Which countries people donate and give charity the way we do? Not a one on this list. every time the world has a problem its whats America going to do about it? And then its screw America for doing something about it. Gfy man up and take care of your own countries issues stop taking our money since you hate us and stop asking us for help because no one else is willing or wanting to do it.

I am a 12 year old and I have been to america just recently and it is not the worst country in the world I can tell you that right now. I have travelled all over the world to a variety of countries and this is not the worst place. Since it is such a big place how can it be the worst since it has many chances to prove itself.

Messed up attitude. Think they are the best. Nice place to live though if you can get around the bad, mean, racist, blindly religious people. - Robobrain

How the heck is India higher than China? China should be number 1 on this list! All those who voted for India are bloody racists! Largest democracy! Freedom of speech thought and everything! United States police are too strict! African countries civil war... Pakistan terrorism... Afghanistan almost anarchy... China government controls literally everything and internet and information is taboo... North Korea too... Iraq Iran total confusion! But what's 1 negative about India? And where is Australia?

The United States is the greatest country in the entire world, you guys are just jealous and ungrateful. - ant081799

It's wonderful how 50% of these comments are about how racist and arrogant Americans are. It's wonderful how that generalizes the whole of the American people. Thanks for being hypocrites!

Rubbish, I don't live there but I'm intelligent enough to know that the average American is leading - by a distance - a far better life than the majority of other countries. Certainly the likes of Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan or even SYRIA! They are literally in a civil war!

A country that enjoys killing each other. Eating fast food daily. Doing Month/Day/Year instead of Day/Month/Year which is really confusing. Where your waste leaves your body call the place you go to the restroom. You call every biscuit a cookie, a jumper is a dress. Money has the word "God" on it.

Were SO MUCH BETTER THAN SOMALIA, IRAQ, SYRIA, SAUDI ARABIA AND NORTH KOREA! We don't get executed for being gay, disliking Obama, practicing religion, and we don't have concentration camps!

Agreed it is 2nd worst in the world. They are racists show no respect for other countries allowed a douche nozzle like trump to become president don't know anything about other countries think they are the best country in the world jealous of other countries tax the poor so much terrible education system do I need to go on?

Much of you will not agree that the US is bad world player, but in realism there are a major problem and have been for a long time. They have interfered with other countries for only resources and money

I'm from London and I must say most people here LOVE South Americans with their fun carnivals, fascinating cultures, knowledge and great attitudes. However most people do HATE the USA. They are seen as obnoxious, crude, selfish, obese and greedy people that are nosy and think the world revolve around them. And they're stupid.

Probably not this bad. But so maybe people voted the usa in number 2 because they are way too overrated. First of all people their don't have the right to helthcare. Canadian doctors actually care about their people while American doctors don't care about a human life just as long as they get money. That's what makes american doctors so selfish. Not to mention when we were a part of britian we burnt down your white house in 1812 and thought you a damn lesson. Ha I bet in 1812 when the americans invaded upper and lower canada we were probably all like DIE YOU BLOODY YANKEES DIE!
