    The Social Progress Index examines categories like religious and LGBT tolerance, access to clean water, press freedom and access to education, the WEF's Gender Gap report looks into gender parity in jobs and education, and the EPI focuses on things like carbon emissions and recycling.

    Movehub combined the results for each country to create a comprehensive list revealing the least liberal countries in the world.

    While many of the countries in this list are Middle Eastern nations struggling to cope with the impact of the Syrian refugee crisis, others are spread out all over the world, from Cambodia in Asia to the west African nation of Angola.

    See the 25 most conservative, intolerant, and polluted countries in the world below:

    25. Sri Lanka — Sri Lanka came 108th in the Environmental Performance Index out of 180 countries surveyed, and performed badly on personal rights, tolerance, and access to information in the Social Progress Index.

    24. Algeria — Algeria was one of the worst performing countries in the WEF's Gender Gap Report, coming in 120th. It also has one of the worst scores for personal rights in the Social Progress Index, scoring just under 14 out of 100 in the report.

    23. Benin — Corruption is rife in Benin, which ranks among the world's poorest countries. Adult literacy rates are poor compared to countries with a similar GDP per capita like Afghanistan, Ethiopa and Uganda, but it also performed relatively well on political freedoms, meaning it misses out on a place in the top 20.

    22. Nigeria — Nigeria's poor scores on water sanitation, religious tolerance, crime levels and adult literacy in the Social Progress Index put it in 22nd place.

    21. India — India received a low score for religious and racial tolerance, freedom of speech and gender inequality in education in the Social Progress Index, and was one of the worst-performing countries in the Environmental Performance Index, coming in 141st.

    20. Morocco — Morocco did relatively well in the Environmental Performance index, coming in 64th ahead of the Philippines — which is one of the most liberal countries in Movehub's ranking. However, its poor access to advanced education, personal rights, gender parity and press freedom makes it one of the most nonprogressive countries in the world.

    19. Turkey — Unsurprisingly, Turkey is one of the least safe countries in the world right now, and received low scores for personal safety, political freedom and tolerance of immigrants in the Social Progress Index.

    18. Burkina Faso — Burkina Faso came 18th in Movehub's ranking for its poor access to electricity, adult literacy rates, low life expectancy and position as the 165th worst country in the Environmental Performance Index.

    17. Cambodia — Cambodia's low scores on environmental quality and political rights in the Social Performance Index put it in 17th place.

    16. Jordan — Jordan was the 11th worst-performing country in the WEF Gender Gap report, and also suffered low scores on personal rights and environmental quality in the Social Progress index.

    15. Liberia — Liberia came 167th out of 180 nations in the Environmental Performance Index. This, combined with a low ranking in the Gender Gap report (114th), puts it in the top 15 of Movehub's list.

    14. Kuwait — Kuwait City may be known for its gleaming skyscrapers, but the oil-rich nation received very low scores for personal and political rights, access to education, and personal safety in the Social Performance Index compared to countries with a similar wealth, like the United States.

    13. Bangladesh — Religious tolerance, discrimination and corruption are rife in Bangladesh, according to the Social Progress Index. It also has one of the worst environmental records, coming 173rd in the Environmental Performance Index.

    12. Angola — Thanks to its oil fields, Angola is one of Africa's most resource-rich countries, but it is still one of the continent's poorest nations. It received low scores for access to education, press freedom, shelter and personal rights on the Social Performance Index, and also came 117th in the Gender Gap report.

    11. Nepal — Religious intolerance, poor electricity and poor freedom of movement mean that Nepal performed badly in the Social Progress Index. It also scored badly in the Environmental Performance Index, finishing 149th out of 180 countries.

    10. Ethiopia — Ethiopia has one of the lowest scores in the world for access to advanced education. It was also in the bottom 40 in the WEF Gender Gap Report, putting it in 10th for Movehub's ranking.

    9. Swaziland — Due to poor personal rights, water sanitation, shelter and personal safety, the tiny African nation's score on the Social Progress Index was weak compared to countries with a comparable GDP per capita like Morocco and the Philippenes.

    8. Lebanon — Lebabon has one of the poorest records for gender parity in the world, coming 135th in the WEF Gender Gap report. It also received low scores for religious, racial, and LGBT tolerance in the Social Progress Index, leaving it in eighth place in Movehub's analysis.

    7. Saudi Arabia — With its strict gender-based laws surrounding everything from dress codes to leaving the country, Saudi Arabia is the fourth worst country in the world for equality according to the Gender Gap Report. Personal freedoms are also low in the Social Progress Index, with Saudi Arabia scoring just 9.1 out of 100 in the category.

    6. Egypt — Egypt is one of the least free countries in the world, receiving extremely low scores on personal rights, safety, and access to advanced education in the Social Progress Index. It is also in the bottom 15 of the countries in the Gender Gap Report.

    5. Chad — Chad was one of the worst performing countries in terms of access to advanced education, and also scored badly on personal rights, safety, water sanitation and LGBT tolerance in the Social Progress Index. The country even passed a law making homosexuality a criminal offence in December 2016.

    4. Pakistan — Pakistan is the second worst country in the world for gender parity according to the Gender Gap report, with low educational attainment and career progression for women. It also performed badly in the Environmental Performance Index, ranking 144th out of 180 countries surveyed.

    3. Iran — Like Pakistan, Iran has a poor record in the Gender Gap Report, placing in the bottom six behind Chad, Saudi Arabia, and Syria. This, combined with an exceedingly low personal rights score in the Social Progress Index, makes it the third most conservative country in the world.

    2. Mali — Mali received one of the lowest scores for access to advanced education in the Social Progress Index, and placed just ahead of Iran in the Gender Gap report at 136th. On top of this, it came 174th out of 180 countries in the environmental Performance Index, making it the second least progressive, tolerant and eco-friendly country in the world.

    1. Yemen — Yemen is the most conservative country on the planet, according to Movehub. It came in last place in the WEF Gender Gap Report, performed badly on personal rights, corruption and access to education in the Social Progress Index, and came 150th in the Environmental Performance Index.

    I being a pakistani would place pakistan at the top of the list....
    Pakistan society has really been left atleast 2 decades behind the world . The people don't have brain power to think what is right and wrong for them.
    People are emotional , forms opinion at first glance, and once opinion set is set forever.
    Our society is very tolerant to the bad aspects of our society and don't want to change. They wanted to stay the same. People actually consider themselves due to their birth and cast system is as bad as in india.
    With no proper governance system... We actually don't know who govern what. No govererance what so ever, no proper police, no proper judiciary, no proper schools, no hospitals. Everyone fights other for domination. No local governments, no proper provincial government. No check and balance.
    In Pakistan no matter how secular and liberal people are, they would never accept.
    They society is hypocrite to the core. There is no society more hypocrite then a pakistan society.
    They don't want mainstream and so maddrassa reforms. Every Molvi was teaching his own and of Islam. Some even teaching hatred among others.
    Dirtiest, well no country can be more dirty then the country whose name is pak...
    Yes India and Bangladesh are also polluted and dirty country, but is it a justification of our pollution. Cities are not liveable, food is not fit to eat, water is not available for drinking. No hospitals Sad part is people don't know. People don't care.
    Only Allah can save pakistan, of he wanted to...
    We have seen the worst, but coming out of worst we are still in emergency ward.
    It seems we don't want to be proper healthy again.
    The leadership imposed by past military dictators and their children would rule and ruin this country to end.

    You are not ashamed at making top 5, are you....
    Only thing you are bothered is India....
    It is open secret what India is, nobody denies that and now in the last decade they have moved towards extrimism too. But is that justification of Pakistan making top 5.

    Maybe but I doubt that very much India and Pakistan are the same when it come to women's rights.

    In fact all the countries in that region are pathetic.

    lol ok then wow your insults are awesome but that does not take away from the facts that India, Pakistan etc are very dangerous countries for women.

    Both countries are intolerant, polluted and basically shit holes.
