Your list, plus Sri Lanka, and all of South America that fits within the criteria, and Georgia.

Though to be realistic, the larger countries actually hides a lot of inequality where there are certainly regions that make a hell of a lot more than 10,000 per capita GDP. China being an obvious testament to that.

I don't think I'd like to live in any of them..

China would probably be up there though.

Well, I can't choose Brazil, since Brazil's GDP per capita is above 10.000 dollars...

Then I would choose Ecuador...

Specifically, the city of Guayaquil...

I actually have lived in five such countries, and there is nothing at all unattractive about living in that part of the world, even without lavish expat income. Spreading it around by region, and assuming I am living on less than $1,000 a month, I suppose my preferences would be:

Colombia
Cameroon
Bulgaria
Philippines
Iran

Of course he would, Iran is a lovely, progressive, peaceful and democratic nation that has never violated human rights laws, and is definitely far, far, superior to the evil imperialist and bureaucratic United States...

When did he say that? Besides, the whole topic is stipulated on NOT being able to choose the US or other developed countries.

Iran's actually kind of nice except for Tehran. International politics don't always play out in your day to day life.
