On the flipside, they also lay claim to some of the most (financially) rewarding job opportunities. Companies that operate in these places often have trouble filling spots, so they make them ultra-lucrative to lure the most committed (most desperate?) individuals. So the next Robert Young Peltons of the world, itching to uproot themselves from their cushy lives of jobless leisure, need only take root in Lagos, Nigeria (No. 1!!!!), Almaty, Kazakhstan, or any number of burgs in India or China.

Any takers? Let us know where you end up -- we'll be waiting for your postcard. Don't forget to shed some light on where to find the best public bathrooms in your area, and the Pink Slipped staff will fill all the frantic requests for non-moldy fruit, candy bars and cans of Campbell's soup it can handle. (Send enough cash to cover postage.)
