According to the Fund for Peace, the United States has a “failed state index” score of 35.3, which makes the United States rank one-hundred-fifty-eighth out of one-hundred-seventy-seven ranked countries. Somalia ranks first, with a score of 114.3 out of 120 possible points.

The U.S. score puts the U.S. in the category of “moderate” as opposed to “sustainable.”
