their HDI (Human Development Index) or living standard.

                                                                INTRODUCTION


The 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,HIGH
