It is possible, by checking out just a few things, to tell if you are in a third world country.
The first thing that can tell you if you are in a third world country is infrastructure development.
The second thing that can tell you if you are in a third world country is the appearance (in terms of things like contentedness) of the folks you encounter on the streets.
The third thing that can tell you if you are in a third world country is by checking how well the rule of law is being applied. In a third world country, you will notice that things like traffic rules are not observed. But in a developed country, you get flagged for even the smallest misdemeanor. That is how, for something as simple as parking where you are not supposed to park, you end up having to pay a hefty fine at a portal like www.njmcdirect.com – that being a portal which many people refer to as NJMC Direct. On the other hand, in a third world country, even if you are indeed flagged for the same misdemeanor, what is more likely to happen is that a bribe will be solicited from you, by a corrupt official. The approach in the developed world may seem taciturn: but it is due to that strict approach that we end up with the level of order and development that we see in the developed world.
