INTRODUCTIONThe site A World in Trouble ranks all the independent countries according to the perception of the risk of a coup or a conflict. This site doesn't consider if a country is democratic or not does it consider any economic situation,just the risk of overthrowing the chief of the state or entering into a conflict such as civil war,guerrilla action or war with other country. The site considers a risk within the immediate future, for example 2-3 years. In some countries there is a current risk of a coup or an outbreak of a conflict. In others there are particular situations which can lead toward this situation in the near future. Since it is not realistic to make a forecast of a very long term situation, I think it is logical and appropriate to consider a short period of 2-3 years. Categories of risk:NONE,VERY LOW,LOW,MEDIUM,HIGHLast update: 15/10/16
