Countries You Won't Visit

As requested by @gramsci in the sister thread "Your Dream Country," which countries do you dislike or won't visit or live in, and why?

My answer is:

- Countries that discriminate against Christians.
- Countries where women get harrassed and don't have the same freedom as men.
- Countries or regions where tourists are in danger of being killed, kidnapped, or attacked because of terrorism, gang activity, and lawlessness.
- Countries with repressive regimes and political prisoners, where free speech is supressed, and which have a poor human rights record.

India ( this country litteraly play on my nerves in every aspect) , most of arab countries, lately ukraine because its governed by a fascist regime, colombia ( drogues and mafias) ,
There is also the category of countries that lack culture , or interesting history or natural ineteresting sites.

Guys, please remember that this thread is not about insulting other countries and people. It's one thing to say you won't visit or live in a country for specific and valid reasons, it's another to vaguely imply that "x" country is "bad" or "nasty." Please try to frame your criticisms in a constructive way, rather than being gratuitiously offensive. Thanks :)

Well then let me explain why they are horrible horrible countries lol! Apart from the many many human rights violations north Korea and Eritrea are number one and number two when it comes to slavery, Eritrea also ranks quite high when it comes to female genital mutilation. Their own citizens would rather run and die than stay put and remain alive so I'm guessing I would definitely not enjoy visiting :p

I have many, actually. I'm not one of those who like to collect countries. I like to keep my bucket list selective and concise.

Countries I won't visit (or revisit):
Basically any country where the ratio of veiled women to non-veiled women is 9:1 (bisir ma3eh 3ab2a).
Countries ruled by Sharia Law: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Brunei, Qatar, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan,
Mauritania.
Egypt (You can go to prison for for things like "joking about the Nile + 95% female genital mutilation).
Bahrain (yawwwwn kill me now plz)
Communist countries: China, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Cuba.
Dahye (I'm listing it because it's a state within a state)

Countries I'm in no rush to visit:
Australia, Canada, USA (too generic, not much history)
Belarus, Moldova, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Romania, Slovakia (concrete socialist monstrosities)
Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia (yawn...)
Lichtenstein, Andorra, San Marino (fake duty-free shopping enclaves)
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia (sorry Indie, but the Caucasus region doesn't grab me for some reason)
Central Asia (except Uzbekistan)
Most African countries (Maybe a safari in Tanzania before I boycott the continent for good)
All those tropical tiny islands spread in the Pacific Ocean and which take 4 stops to get to.
Central America (Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua,. El Salvador..)
India (unless wearing an anti-microbial suit and feeding on canned food).

And to think there are people out there who only wipe their butt and don't use a bidet...
Disgusting :/

Italian hotels are geared towards American tourists that's why they lack bidets.
But most Italian households have ones.
