    Bosnia worst, Serbia 2nd worst Slavic country. We would be 1st if Bosnia is not divided in two states 
    PS. I neglected Russia, but its large state so surely there are better and worse places to live there  ;D

    Yes, they are. You can look which factors were taken into consideration

    I still doubt Saudi Arabia and Turkmenistan should be ahead of Russia.
    There's a little lie, a big lie and there're Pindostan statistics. ;)

    From the link:

    12 factors are used by Fund For Peace to ascertain the status of a country.

    Social
    Mounting demographic pressures.
    Massive displacement of refugees, creating severe humanitarian emergencies.
    Widespread vengeance-seeking group grievance.
    Chronic and sustained human flight.
    Economic
    Uneven economic development along group lines.
    Severe economic decline.
    Political
    Criminalization and/or delegitimization of the state.
    Deterioration of public services.
    Suspension or arbitrary application of law; widespread human rights abuses.
    Security apparatus operating as a "state within a state".
    Rise of factionalized elites.
    Intervention of external political agents.

    I think this is it, many things on the list Russia failed to do in proper way

    Thanks, but I'd found these factors already.

    I don't say that Russia does everything properly. Quite the opposite. There're countries which do better for example the ones of Northern Europe. But not for example Saudi Arabia.

    I can see the figures here, but what's behind them? I could easily draw different figure to blacken a country of my choice.
    I've noticed that American, British, etc ratings often underestimate unwanted regimes such as for example Belarussian one.
    Ratings seem to be an easy way to influence the public opinion. Otherwise I like maps and diagrams. :)

    You forgot Pindostan.  :D

    Belarus: a country where a one-armed man was just last year arrested for clapping. ??? Yeah, I'd say Belarus is "an wanted regime."

    I didn't. I'm not sure Pindostan is doing better. ;)

    Should I watch 55 minuts of propaganda to find information about this one-armed man? I've watched the first 10 minutes. Would you like to watch some horror films about American life?
    I know that Belarus isn't perfect without your film. But at least Belarussians eat natural products and not GMO like Americans and Belarus isn't flooded by Asian guest workers like Russia.
    I'm not a fan of authoritarian regimes, but it's better when everything is controlled by a state than when everything is controlled by thieves or some foreign powers.

    I'd say exactly that about Pindostan.

    I see no point in further arguing with biased people.
