    Washington: India is far better than the neighbors like Pakistan and China in terms of the performance as a nation. India is ranked 87 in a list of 177 failed states in 2010 while China ranked at 57th place and Pakistan at 10th place. The list,published by Foreign Policy magazine, is topped by Somalia,
    followed by Zimbabwe, Sudan, and Chad.In India's immediate neighbourhood, Burma has been placed at 13, Sri Lanka (22) and Nepal 25. China is ranked at 57th place. Norway is ranked at the bottom of the list.


    "Shattered Somalia has been the No.1 failed state for three years running, and none of the current top 10 has shown much improvement, if any, since FOREIGN POLICY and the Fund for Peace began publishing the index in 2005," it said.

    "Altogether, the top 10 slots have rotated among just 15 unhappy countries in the index's six years. State failure, it seems, is a chronic condition," said the magazine.

    The magazine said Somalia saw yet another year plagued by lawlessness and chaos, with pirates plying the coast while radical Islamist militias tightened their grip on the streets of Mogadishu.

    "Across the Gulf of Aden, long-ignored Yemen leapt into the news when a would-be suicide bomber who had trained there tried to blow up a commercial flight bound for Detroit," it said.

    Afghanistan and Iraq traded places on the index as both states contemplated the exit of US combat troops, while already isolated Sudan saw its dictator, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, defy an arrest warrant from the International Criminal Court and the war-ravaged Democratic Republic of the Congo once again proved itself a country in little more than name, the magazine said.

    The magazine has used 90,000 publicly available sources to analyze 177 countries and rate them on 12 metrics of state decay - from refugee flows to economic implosion, human rights violations to security threats.

    Nonsense all this. Tomorrow Chinese media will come up with a list of failed states and call most european countries as failed due to their economic woes.

    Just look at this map:

    This list is as much laughable as are Moody's financial ratings.

    Kind of a pessimistic kind of an index. Even the ones of the last of the list are called least failed state rather than successful states.
