Eritrea still Fares much better than the Woyane ruled Ethiopia in the world FSI Rank

The FSI is an indicator of risk - Ethiopia is at Risk!


Ethiopia has backtracked from its improvement last year to drop three places and rank 17, in the latest Failed States Index released by Foreign Policy Magazine and The Fund for Peace. Somalia tops the list with 114.9 points, followed by Congo (111.2), Sudan (109.4), Chad (107.6) and Zimbabwe (106.3).

Ethiopia scored the worst in its ability to meet the challenges of Mounting Demographic Pressures that the country faces. Ethiopia is the second most populous nation in Africa and has one of the highest birth rates in the world, it constantly struggles to feed itself. These mounting demographic pressures create conditions for a failed state, and Ethiopia fares badly in this indicator.

Other indicators cited for Ethiopia’s topping the list of failed states, include rise of fictionalized elites, the security apparatus that terrorize its own population and rampant human right violations in the country.

Eritrea, a country which we were forced to believe as if it is the second most failed states after Somalia, fares much better and ranks 23rd.
