Least Democratic Country in the World Will Surprise You – Hint: It’s NOT North Korea.

During the pandemic over the last two years, democracy has taken a tumble in many nations around the world. While Covid-19 has been frightful for some, the disease was a gift to many aspiring tyrants who were looking for the perfect excuse to seize unquestionable power. In the name of public health, citizens around the world lost freedoms to power hungry leaders.

According to a report released by Bloomberg, the percentage of people living in a democracy last year drastically fell from 49.4% to 45.7%.

Democracies are important for Christians, because though they are not a perfect gage to evaluate the level of religious freedom, they are a great indication. Sharing the Gospel message in democratic countries has traditionally been easier than non-democratic nations. Christian nations were among the first to adopt the democratic political system on a large, influential scale.

In this way, North Korea is known for being both the most oppressive nation for Christians in the world and the least democratic, even though the official name is Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. North Korea is neither a democracy, nor a republic.

According to the report, North Korea has been bumped from the top spot, (or bottom spot as it were) and two countries have taken the most notorious spot for the least democratic nations in the world.

Afghanistan is now the least democratic country in the world and is also one of the worst nations to be a Christian in today. Afghanistan is followed by Myanmar in second place and North Korea in third.

According to the report,  China is not far behind in the bottom fifth spot and Hong Kong makes the bottom of the list for the first time:

  1. Afghanistan
  2. Myanmar
  3. North Korea
  4. Laos
  5. China
  6. Cambodia
  7. Vietnam
  8. Pakistan
  9. Nepal
  10. Hong Kong


Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.

    Muslims Nations want to be Muslim and follow Islam. They believe in Allah,God. Some call him Allah and some now in 2022 call him God. He’s the same. God has many names depending where you live and what Era you came from and what Religion you practice. Muslims are devout prayers to Allah daily and ask for his Mercy. If a Muslum Man marries a Christian woman they want them to convert to Islam. Islam is a beautiful Religion and has great beliefs and Morals and practices and believe in purity. So do many Jews. Many Catholics and Christians also do. So do Buddhists and the Amish and the Mennonites. It was always that way until this generation destroyed the beauty and sacredness of it. Muslims love Mohammed and no one must mock Mohammed. They believe Jesus was a Prophet. But Catholics and Christians believe Jesus is the Messiah the Son of God. Jesus is also the Father, incarnate as man who walked Earth and was scouraged, falsely accused, crowned with thornes and mocked and spit upon, made to carry his cross, then was crucified and pierced by a Lance after death that sprayed Love and Mercy on the Soldier who did this and for all the sins of the World of Mankind. Jesus then rose from the dead into Heaven and sits on his Throne in his Kingdom in Heaven. Messianic Jews believe Jesus is the Messiah but the Jews are still waiting for the Messiah to come. Jews and Catholics are devout prayers. Christians also pray. Buddhists and Hindus pray as well. North Korea and China don’t want Religion in their Nation. They want you to worship the Leader. North Korea doesn’t want South Korea sending over propaganda balloons over rhe border filled with prayers and Religion things and Anti Government material either. Two years ago North Korea shot at South Korea who was standing at the border trying to get in and talk. North Korea didn’t want to talk. South Korea is Catholic/Christian. Then North Korea blew up their Demilitarized Zone where North Korea and South Korea always met to talk but now they closed the door saying they don’t want to talk at all ever. Atheist Nations don’t want God or any Religion. China is that way. They tolerate Ancient Chinese Buddhism and Taoism and Confusionism but won’t allow Muslims or Catholics or Christians to practice any Religion at all. They gathered the Uyghur Muslims several years ago and put them in concentration camps by the West’s standards but China calls them Re-Education Camps to learn the Communist Party’s way. Videos showed them happy and singing and dancing but not allowed to leave. Rumors said that they were made to do slave labor at factories near by and other rumors saying they were mistreated harshly. No one is allowed to see the inside and they only show what they want. Many of the Catholic/Christian Churches were torn down. Remaining ones the Government sawed off the Crosses of the remaining Churches and removed all the Bibles and took down all the Crucifixes and replaced them with Xi Jin Ping’s Photo and the China Flag and a photo of Mao Zedong only and claimed they were now Government meeting places. No information has been told as to if Catholics/Christians are put in Re-Education Centers or in prison. The only mistreatment of Catholics/Christians was a photo shown 2 years ago of a Catholic/Christian woman tied and bound to a chair with a Communist Soldier standing behind her holding a wooden board behind her head demanding she denounce Jesus Christ and if she didn’t she would get wacked in the head and the photo shows her screaming as if she’s saying (No I won’t do that) and crying out for Jesus’s help. Then another time Mother’s having play group in their home had Govetnment Soldiers knock on their door telling them they can’t meet and have play group anymore because the Government thought they were secretly praying and having an Underground Mass. Then it was rumored that Xi Jin Ping was re-writing the Bible to tell what he only wants the Citizens of China need to know his version and not the real version that is written. Religion of every kind mentioned here gives those who pray and practice it gives people Love and Peace and a sense of belonging and truth and focus for their life. We all must Respect each other’s Religion they choose to practice. God wouldn’t want you to Hate anyone for their Religion and kill them for it. That’s not God’s Way. Anyone killed for their Religion are instant Martyr’s. Catholic, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Amish, Mennonite. It means you died for God.
