Kakistocracy v. Rorshach

Thanks to Kirk, I learned a new word today:
Kakistocracy is government by the worst, most unprincipled citizens of a state. It's from the Greek kakistos, worst, superlative of kakos, bad.
The link above will give you one plausible answer to the question, but I want you to take a moment and think: are there any other nations today which I would characterize as kakistocratic?

I can think of a few, actually. Who's on your list?
