New Year’s Dishonor List Day 2023: Welcome to New Year’s Dishonor List Day, the day where we review the most dishonorable acts of the previous year. From politicians and corporations to individuals and organizations, no one is exempt from the list. In this post we will take a look at all of the bad actors who made headlines in 2022, as well as their respective misdeeds. We’ll look at what went wrong, why they shouldn’t have done it, and how they can make things right moving forward. So join us as we reflect on the most dishonorable acts of 2022 and discuss what should be done about each case.
List of the worst behaved countries in the world
The United Nations’ annual list of shame was released this morning, and—unsurprisingly—a number of countries made the cut. Here are the 15 nations that topped the list for their human rights abuses and general bad behavior in 2015:
- North Korea
- Central African Republic
- South Sudan
- Democratic Republic of Congo
The most corrupt countries in the world
According to watchdog group Transparency International, Somalia is the most corrupt country in the world. The country has been plagued by years of conflict and instability, which has made it difficult to combat corruption.
Other countries that round out the top five most corrupt countries are South Sudan, North Korea, Yemen, and Syria. All of these countries have been impacted by war or conflict in recent years, which has contributed to an environment where corruption can flourish.
While there are many factors that contribute to corruption, one of the primary drivers is a lack of accountability and transparency. When government officials and business leaders are not held accountable for their actions, it creates an environment where corruption can thrive.
The good news is that there are a number of countries that have made significant progress in combating corruption in recent years. These include Chile, Greece, Portugal, and Uruguay. By shining a light on corrupt practices and holding those responsible accountable, these countries are making headway in the fight against this global problem.
The least free countries in the world
According to Freedom House’s annual report, “Freedom in the World,” 2015 was a bad year for freedom. Sixty-six countries suffered net declines in political rights and civil liberties, with only 50 registering gains. This marked the ninth consecutive year of decline in global freedom. The report rates each country on a scale of 1 to 7, with 1 being the most free and 7 being the least free. Here are the 10 least free countries in the world, according to Freedom House:
- North Korea – Rated 7 out of 7
- Syria – Rated 6.5 out of 7
- Iraq – Rated 6 out of 7
- Turkmenistan – Rated 5.5 out of 7
- Uzbekistan – Rated 5.5 out of 7
- Eritrea – Rated 5 out of 7
- Saudi Arabia – Rated 4.5 out of 7

The most dangerous countries in the world
No one wants to start the new year off on the wrong foot, but unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens when we compile our annual list of the world’s most dangerous countries. This year’s dishonor roll is topped by war-torn Afghanistan, which has been mired in conflict for nearly four decades. It is followed by Iraq, which is still struggling to recover from years of sectarian violence; Syria, where a civil war has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives; and Somalia, which has been plagued by lawlessness and extremism for years.
Rounding out the top five are Yemen and South Sudan, two countries that have been devastated by civil wars in recent years. Also included on the list are Libya, Pakistan, and Nigeria, all of which have struggled with terrorism and insecurity in recent years.
So what makes a country dangerous? In compiling this list, we looked at a variety of factors, including the number of homicides per 100,000 people, the level of terrorist activity, the prevalence of violent crime, and the existence of political instability or conflict. We also considered each country’s overall levels of development and its access to weapons and firearms.
Afghanistan: With a homicide rate of 20.5 per 100,000 people, Afghanistan is the most dangerous country in the world. The country has been mired in conflict for nearly four decades, and show no signs of slowing down. In addition to the high level
The happiest countries in the world
There are many different ways to measure happiness, but one of the most common is the World Happiness Report. The report ranks 156 countries by their happiness levels, and this year, the top 10 happiest countries in the world are:
- New Zealand
The United States came in at 19th on the list, down from 18th last year. So what makes these countries so happy? It’s hard to say for sure, but some of the contributing factors may be things like a strong sense of community, social support systems, low income inequality, and high levels of personal freedom and autonomy. Whatever the reasons, it’s clear that these countries have something going for them that we could all learn from!
January 1, 2023 marks the first annual New Year’s Dishonor List Day. It is a day to recognize those people and companies that have failed to do the right thing or meet their obligations throughout the year. We hope that this day will serve as an important reminder for everyone to think before they act, and strive towards doing what is right in every situation – no matter how difficult it may be. Let’s make sure we all use this day as an opportunity to stop and reflect on our actions, so that we can move into the new year with better intentions than ever before!
