1. Funafuti
    Tuvalu is only 15 ft above sea level, so it'll probably be underwater in like a hot century.
  2. Bujumbura
    The tiny capital of tiny Burundi, which has one of the world's tiniest GDPs per capita. Not so tiny history of ethnic warfare, though. Hutus and Tutsis and Twas, oh my!
  3. Djibouti
    Djibouti, Djibouti, shakin' dat ass, borderin' Somalia and occupying a strategic position on one of the world's busiest shipping lanes between the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.
  4. Abuja
    Nigeria has been plagued with sectarian violence incited by Boko Haram, so it's more like A-boo-ja, am I right ladies now enduring Sharia law in 12 out of 36 states?
  5. Antananarivo
    But Madagascar was so successful that it had three sequels and a spinoff! Sadly, 90% of Madagascar's population lives on less than $2/day. Dream(works) on, Malagasy.
  6. Juba
    Capital of South Sudan, which is like, barely a country at this point. Failed states FTW!
  7. Bangui
    The Central African Republic might be centrally located and have tons of natural resources, but it's 1) landlocked and 2) 185th out of 187 countries on the Human Development Index. But Bangui WAS named People Magazine's Most Dangerous City in 1996, so there's that.
  8. Tegucigalpa
    Honduras has the highest homicide rate in the world, with 90 murders per 100,000 people. ¡Olé!
  9. Lilongwe
    It's nearly impossible to estimate population because so many people died from AIDS, but whatever number you find, remember to subtract one for Madonna's adopted son, David Banda.
  10. Pyongyang
    The only thing we know for sure about North Korea is that they love THE SOUND OF MUSIC, which Diane Sawyer told us during this week's UNTOLD STORY OF THE SOUND OF MUSIC.
