Most Respected Countries in the world
So lets get the negatives out of the way. Although the United States reputation abroad was slightly improved under the Obama administration, due to continued wars, spying, and a general sense of overreach/imperialism, the United States has managed to isolate even some of its allies. Furthermore,it has a reputation for violence, lack of safety, poor healthcare coverage, and massive inequality. With that said, the United States is still seen as the melting pot and land of opportunity. So, although there are 21 countries that are seen as more respectable,the US still has a lot going for it. And given the amount of immigration, the world seems to have cast its vote with its feet.
