The U.S. ranks 19th in state success

9 November 2012 1 comment

According to the Fund for Peace, the United States has a “failed state index” score of 34.8, which makes the United States the nineteenth most successful state in the world, out of one hundred seventy seven countries ranked in that category. Finland ranks first, with a score of 20.0. The least successful state in the world is Somalia, with a score of 114.9 out of 120 possible points.

The U.S. is listed as a “stable” nation by the Fund for Peace, but not a “sustainable” nation.
