Can't imagine anybody would want to visit that Saharan dump.
Somalia is certainly a contender, but I think the title of 'World's worst country' goes to North Korea.

Nowhere else on Earth will you find a nation lead by a despotic toolbag (his porcine majesty Kim Jong-Un) who's sole aim is to uphold his blood-bound hierarchy by purposely keeping his citizens in a state of terror.

Nowhere else on Earth will you find such violent hatred towards South Korea, the US, Japan & any other country that isn't either North Korea or China. The sheer amount of vitriolic propaganda spewed by the regime is staggering.

Words cannot describe how terrible the lives of ordinary North Korean citizens must be - forced to live in a despotic dictatorship that outlaws any freedoms of speech, religion, expression or even freedom of movement, whilst under constant surveillance from the authorities:

Say one bad thing about the regime in North Korea and its off to the concentration camps with you...

tbh you don't know what it's like living in North Korea, the North Korean people could be blissfully unaware of how unlucky they are and therefore be happy

One way of finding out how life in the DPRK is so crap is to watch Vice News' 3 part series on North Korea - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24R8JObNNQ4

Yes, there are 3, according to the Human Development Index:


Central African Republic
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Niger


However, it is worth noting that there are 8 UN member states which are not included in the HDI due to lack of information, 3 of which I would consider possible candidates for being 'worse than Chad':

North Korea
Somalia
South Sudan


So, there are between 3 and 6 countries in the world that are worse than Chad.
Although you would be right in saying that Chad is one of the worst.

There are many countries in the world where awful things are done by those with power (Syria, Sudan, Eritrea etc.) but I was just looking at the statistics. Syria does rank rather low in the development index, but in the context of this question, statistically Chad is worse than Syria. However, you would be right in a human rights sense. Syria has the worst human rights risk in the world, while Chad doesn't even make it to the top ten. It's just that, considering other factors such as GDP per capita, life expectancy and years of education, Chad ends up worse off than Syria.

I'd say off the top of my head but then I've not lived in them.
