Top Ten Worst Places to Live

The Top Ten

1 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. 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.

Not that I would want to find out what it's like in North Korea, but I don't think we know enough about what's going on there to fairly judge North Korea. This is all based on assumptions and secondhand knowledge from South Korea.

Why is Texas higher than North Korea? In North Korea the people are starving, living under a dictator, and lots of North Koreans are in the worst prison camps in the world! Texas is a good place it is in America. Nothing is bad about Texas.

I feel bad for those people Kim Jong-un should die

Economy is bad, hatred for americans and south korea, starvation, executions and torturing, and lots more all because kim jung un wants to stay in full rather die than live there

2 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.


Whoever put India on this list doesn't know the likes of Pakistan, Iraq, Bangladesh... India may not the best place to live but it certainly is not a worst place. It's the fastest developing country and economy.

All of the wrong things you guys say about India is pre-2000 bro. The sati, the untouchable, that's all very old and has been abolished. Get your facts clear, and don't defame places without proper facts, please.

I am Indian and My dad had sex with cow yesterday

3 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. 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

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

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.

Pakistan is the worst country ever. There government is corrupt its people are uneducated and they always see dreams of taking over India. They poor and needy families and children are not safe from terrorissam

4 Iraq

I can't say I know any of my votes are out of experience (except Texas), but if it's in the Middle East, no thank you. - HaiThere

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.

5 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

Iraq is higher THAN Syria? there are people fleeing from the country and dying while doing it..every day. Iraq it really is only danger where isis is.

For years there has been a war. How is it not on this list?

Someone explain to me why India and the USA is higher than this country?

I dun understand why migrants can't just to to the UAE or Saudi Arabia:/

6 USA 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 more.

The USA is the only country where the school system exists for the purposes of target practice.

It is extremely rude to say something bad about any place! Imagine how sad some people would be if everybody hated your country? People in America may not have the hardest tests in school, but they are still smart! Smart enough to say good things about other countries! You should be ashamed of yourself of making this list! People can get seriously hurt because of this! Now stop insulting America and think about how well your country's going. Go ahead. Try. I dare you.

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.

7 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Lots of things going on there. - funnyuser

8 Somalia

I'm a somali and this should not be on the list at all, it's stable and it's being rebuilt

Literal Anarchy. Terrorism. Ak-47s. Pirates. More Terrorism. No Economy whatsoever. No Utilities. Nothing. No.

9 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

Putin is a benevolent dictator.

10 Beijing

It clearly says places not countries and that was Hiroshima and Nagasaki that got nuked

This is a nice country.

He said places not countrys - TheCarNerd

The Contenders

11 Antarctica

But, what about all the cute penguins!?!?!?

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 Libya
13 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!

Why do so many people live here if it's as crappy as they say it is? - HaiThere

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

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

The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

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, 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.

However this is below Texas angers me.

19 Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Hold on what Egypt is a very nice place to live I am an Egyptian proudly lived here my entire life its normal with cities it barely has deserted living places it just has a large area of desert away from cities and who would ever put this on here anyways I mean yes it could have some problems but just on the regular scale of any country in the world believe me it ain't no desert try visiting it once and you wont regret it

It is just a hot desert where people die while they live there, if you don't want to die then do not move there!

Egypt is like Texas or Arizona on steroids.

Take it off list!

4 american states and 1 american city. I thought they only ment countries.

21 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 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...

Just way to racist - SkyRimLegend21


22 Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

A crappy country with a benevolent dictator.

23 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.

What a terrible place to live in.

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

I garuntee that you won't survive there.

24 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!
