INTRODUCTIONThis site ranks all the dependent territories according to their living standard. Besides these territories, the list includes those self-proclaimed independent countries in which the main government currently has not any control. The rank considers standard data such as political, economical, health and social situation, incomes,life expectancy, number of doctors, nurses, records of crime,etc There is a special note for the territories under an authoritarian rule, civil war or facing guerrilla activity. The site World Rank has been created with my personal opinion about the living standard of the dependent territories. The site is updated every time there is a situation which changes the living standard of a particular territory, making it better or worse to live in than others. The situation can be: a civil war,a coup, a heavy flood, a strong drought, a strong economical crisis due to a bad economical situation, or the opposite: a strong growth, etc The update will be made as soon as the situation will change the standard of life of the population. The site includes the dependences, oversea territories and commonwealths. The + and the - indicate an improvement or a worsening in the living standard.
