Foreign Policy has released the 2013 edition of its Failed States Index. There's not much of a surprise (though I am a bit surprised by number 3 on the list below). The bottom (top?) ten:

10. Zimbabwe
9. Central African Republic
8. Haiti
7. Afghanistan
6. Yemen
5. Chad
4. South Sudan
3. Sudan
2. Congo
1. Somalia

Because of its methodology, there are some anomalies that pop up in this index, like China being listed as Critical and below Russia and Venezuela; but it's generally a good indicator of potential trouble spots in the world.

Syria is not in the top 10? I think Iraq is quickly climbing the list. Nigeria, too.
