The only time going to jail is fun is when you’re down to your last $47 and are about to land on Boardwalk. Other than that, it sucks -- no matter where you are. And as miserable as a night in the slammer in the US might be, imagine getting locked up in a foreign country. You don't need to have seen Brokendown Palace to know that's some scary sh*t.
But which foreign prisons are the scariest? As in, maybe I shouldn't even visit that country AT ALL, just to play it safe. To find out, we identified those nations most commonly cited as having the world's worst prisons, threw in the ones with terrible overcrowding problems, and then cross-referenced them all against the World Justice Project's data on countries with the slowest, most corrupt, or just plain ass-backward legal systems. Excluding places you’d never go to unless the words “six-figure defense contract” were mentioned, we narrowed the list down to these nine countries.
