It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Easily the worst place to live in my opinion. Kim Jong-un is an arrogant and egotistical leader and the people living there are subject to some of the worst conditions possible. - InfinateSuperstorm

Kim Jong un is so arrogant he needs to change his ways.

Got shot for saying hello to a waiter

North Korea won't last long if they don't rid of kim jung un - Lilant

Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are more.

Pakistan should not exist on this list. It is an AMAZING place to live. - yeshal

Wish can stop ask to vote because it is bod for the cities

Why India is so higher than Pakistan who create this list. This list is completely nonsense. Pakistan has lots of terrorism no freedom for women and including men. Without any particular reason Pakistan's terrorist attacked and killed inocent people.

But there's a war going on there - TheHabsFan

The war has ended years ago, and it was one city not the whole country, duh. - Votebotingsucks

4 Iraq

terrorists - Luckys

Your kidding me, you idiots would actually rather live in the war filled nations of Iraq or Pakistan which are filled with extreme terroristic groups, are extremely unstable, and have an average life expectancy of about 40. Anyone who would pick that is an idiot. The USA is the best country to live in by far. I was born in the UK and have lived in 8 different countries in my life. The USA is definitely the best. If you think differently then you probably haven't even been to the US.

This is why I like America. We don't have any war zones out here except for small street wars. Iraq has war zones 24/7 in ISIS areas - Mcgillacuddy

I am from america. Also known as the USA.

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 more.

Why is this higher than Syria and Venezuela? Are you insane people?

Shootings every day, white supremacy, corruption and death penalties. I enjoy travelling there as a Canadian, but I'd rather live here.

1 Word: PETA

The Contenders

11 Antarctica

Personally it's no big deal its just cold

There is no crime or pollution

Got stabbed by a penguin when I was 10 and shot by big man polar bear when I was 15 I fully embraced the gang life we was the west side Eskimos read about us westsideee

There are no permanent residents, just people stationed there for mainly scientific reasons for one-to-two-year periods.

12 Tornado Alley

Personally, I am deathly afraid of tornadoes. If I had to live in a place like that, I would take my parents car keys and drive all the way to Cali.

I would kill to live in Oklahoma, I am a huge weather enthusiast. I live right outside Tornado Alley and get a lot of storms, but I have yet to see a tornado. - benhos

This is my eighth year living in Kansas, and I have never experienced a tornado. Not once

Tornado is interesting! I would love to go there some day, being a weather enthusiast too!

13 Libya
14 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle East) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic. The capital city is Riyadh.

Swedish girl you racist bitch

I’m a Filipino and I’m offended by this. Philippines has kind and nice people. We all value respect and dignity to other people. We have beautiful places and historical views. Philippines doesn’t suck. So don’t post false witnesses here!

18 Mexico Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

A total crap hole. It is a decent place to live if you are a rat or mangy dog but if you are human it is disgusting.

I've actually taken a trip to Mexico with my cousins one time. It's definitely not a place you want to live in. - Mcgillacuddy

However this is below Texas angers me. - Minecraftcrazy530

19 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.

Just way to racist - SkyRimLegend21

Dog eaters

JUST TOO MUCH RACISM! I've lived here for the past 12 years and overall, it may seem like a nice little country but, its really isn't. People will look down at you if you are a foreigner and they don't seem to like people of darker skin as much. I don't have dark skin at all and people still seem to see something bad in me. I get it that they prefer pale skin but, I feel really bad for the others that have to deal with this. Besides racism, there are many other disadvantages that South Korea can has.

Racist land, and always think better than japan but actually...

20 China China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

If you like dogs then move here - SkyRimLegend21

If you’re a dog lover, nuke this place because they slowly torture dogs and many other animals just for fun

The pollution is so bad there its like smoking 6 packs of cigarettes a day. The pollution is so bad that people get cancer from it and it raises the pollution level on the west coast of the United States. - MinionHater


21 Ukraine

The leaders here are so corrupt. My cousin had to pay half of her monthly salary just to enter the hospital for her leukemia, and had to pay double price for medication that is supposed to be "free". You get shot here if you protest about the government. I hope my country becomes better one day, but now it is not the best.

Ukraine is a great country with friendly people and beautiful nature.

A kid in my class lived there must be terrible. - Awesomelionking

22 Bangladesh

I am a student that went there there was a group of 5 year old girls begging for money :...(. People call a blanket their house there so they live in blankets!

23 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. more.

I agree 100% it should be number 1 KILL ANIME - SkyRimLegend21

Japan is nice place to live

A little pricey but other then that it's great

24 The Himalayas

The himalayas is horrid

25 Israel/Palestine

Israel is the worst country. In the world for what they have done to Palestine. It has nothing to do with the Jewish people and is just genocide on Palestinians.

Jews are not the chosen one they a chossen one.eveyone hasa soul no matter what religen

Jews thinks the are the chosen people,thus racist against non Jews

I garuntee that you won't survive there.

26 Texas Texas Texas is a state in the Southern USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

In ordor to live in texas you gotta be born from texas otherwise you will just get beaten up then fed by wolves - SkyRimLegend21

If you want to live in Texas, live in a city like Dallas, Austin, Houston or San Antonio. Those are all fantastic places to live and I would highly recommend it. Anywhere else is kind of iffy.

Texas is a pretty nice state, but the school system there is pretty controlling, a lot of the schools there feel more like prison camps

What's wrong with Texas? Texas is a pretty decent state. I live in Texas and it's a pretty nice place to live in my opinion. - Imreallyboredrightnow

27 Tokyo Tokyo Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis, one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, has served as the Japanese capital since 1869. As of 2018, the Greater Tokyo Area ranked as the most populous metropolitan area in the world.

28 Detroit Detroit

VERY DANGEROUS! There's fights, crimes, robbers, gangs anything you could think of and guns as well

Hell no!

29 Cincinnati

As I am formerly from Cincinnati, and now live in Grapevine, TX; I can say this with much love: "Visit CincinNasty!, it's a Riot." -circa 1990. Great place to see America's first Professional Baseball Team. (After 150 years, ya think they'd be better). If you haven't been there in the last 5 years, they cleaned up Over the Rhine and put in a Casino, and built the Banks project; finally, after 20 years. I should point out that Cincinnati along with; New Jersey, Detroit, Texas (The entire state and former Republic of Texas), Dallas Texas(Dallas is an Uber Liberal City whose two major accomplishments in the last 10 years have been to ban plastic bags, and spend $450K(of taxpayer money) to move a confederate solider statue; is in the State of Texas which is in the United States of America, which was formerly the Republic of Texas), Illinois, New York and Tornado Alley are all located in the United States of America, just to name a few.

33 New Jersey New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

New Jersey is corruption and terror. If you say good or best they will attack and ruin you. If you say against corruption they will investigate and turn against you. If you say against terror they will turn against you to inflame and cause trouble and terror, racketeering. If say good they will turn every word you say against you. If you say someone needs help they will turn everyone against you and your children, with so many worst racist volunteers against anyone, to make sure you'll need help from the worst legal and medical terror in history like Edwin Ellenbogen from NJ among other evil places. That's the State of New Jersey'twisted and evil'.

Someone is needed to help all the good people in New Jersey, those who are trying are under the worst forms of attack and see the most suffering of anyone anywhere.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." -- Edmund Burke.

"It is the common fate of the indolent to ...more

New Jersey Sucks. Governments and police are little more than corruption and terrorists. Hurt people and children and go after any who don't keep quiet.

New jeresy is a state idiots.

34 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

Is one of the most beautiful and peaceful country in the world.
Best healthcare and social care.

117 different nationalities are living there, the highest in Europe.

And more than 84 000 000 millions tourists in 2014, always 1 or 2 never happy on this number, does not mean anything.

35 Hong Kong

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. more.

Poor, people are very rude.

Poor country but very proud people and always welcome. The greeks living in the south are not as sympathic as in other parts of Albania but the coast is amazing.

44 San Diego San Diego

I live in San Diego. I think it's one of the best cities, also easy access to Tijuana.

It is an american city
