As a country it is an awful modern country it's culture kind of consists of hamburgers trucks fat people etc. If you look at a country like China it is relatively modern in it's buildings etc however it has a rich food culture and it's own language. When you think about Russia or India etc most countries have a strong culture etc however as the world's superpower America seems to be such an awful country.

America is pretty bad, but there are some countries where roving gangs of armed thugs wander around shooting, raping and enslaving people and taking their stuff. It's not the worst country in the world by far.

Look up the Democratic Republic of the Congo - or, indeed, don't, because it's really depressing.

The worst country is an exaggeration and nowhere near. For a category they claim to be in which is the worlds superiors they are certainly somewhere at the bottom.

I struggle to see how such an ineffective country as Russia is better than America.

I think America given its power and resources is a pretty poor country in many respects. In my view its a 2nd world / developing country

no. america is probably the *best* country in the world. it's baffling that you would think the opposite when there are countries that are theocratic, war-torn, impoverished etc

America is a wonderful country where people from all ethnic backgrounds & religions get along pretty well without too much government interference.

*worst country on earth

And no, there are plenty of other cesspit countries in the world to choose from. I'd rather live in the USA anyday over most of the middle east, for instance

They are a militarised nation and, effectively, a rogue state. Their foreign policy includes murdering people in foreign lands without due process and their culture is rampantly capitalistic, materialistic and, essentially, vacuous.

They have done a huge amount of good for the world though in terms of medical and scientific breakthroughs; they make great TV shows and music, and occasionally make great films too. I'd be much happier if we as a country turned more towards Europe and took less interest in American culture though.

Overall, no; they are far, far from the worst country but they are light years away from being the best.

Yeah I know there are much worst countries obv but I meant for a country that has such prominence and power it is kind of disappointing that it is so lacking in culture and history. Maybe if it had been occupied sooner it would have a more attractive culture and history like Russia, China, India or European countries. It doesn't seem to have anything going for it like it's own language, art or food there is nothing apart from maybe it's science or film industry. It maybe the most powerful country but is certainly not the 'best' by any stretch I would say that even countries like Iran which has a beautiful culture and history are better despite their awful human rights abuses.

Yes it seems deeply materialistic and greedy also their culture seems to influence the world too much.

America is such a huge place. Yes, some of it is quite horrible but there are some places with culture and sophistication.
