We all prefer to think that the country we were born and reside in is the greatest on the entire planet, and most people can come up with a good reason or two as to why that is the case. However, what most people don’t know is that there are other countries in the world who are number one for some truly surprising and odd reasons. So, without further adieu, here are ten countries that are first in some bizarre thing.
Afghanistan – Drugs
Most people think Afghanistan is filled with nothing but terrorists and combat, but in reality it is actually the world’s largest drug capital. The country is loaded with cannabis, hashish, opium, and heroin.
