What do you mean South Africa's income isn't much different than Serbia's (Are you crazy)? This just shows how clueless you are, South Africa's income is at least 10x more than Serbia's because of the simple fact SA has lots of natural resources Gold, Platinum, Silver etc to export where as Serbia barely has anything. Yes SA has very uneven wealth distribution that is an indisputable fact which is SA's main problem but I doubt Serbia has perfect wealth distribution or even anywhere near perfect, it is a global problem in which South Africa seems to be very badly affected but that is something we need to work on. "which would have tons of towns without any paving at all" that is the most naive statement, South Africa actually has very good quality roads and I haven't come across any towns without paving at all in my road trips around the country, there probably are a few small rural villages in the Drakensberg and Karoo (which probably aren't even on the map) that have no paving but what country doesn't have those and we are talking about small rural villages not large cities or even small towns, and if you don't believe take a virtual trip on Google Street view to see for yourself that South Africa is paved.<quoted text>
Considering that South Africa's income isn't that different than Serbia but its wealth is far worse distributed it would be South Africa which would have tons of towns without any paving at all. And despite the huge levels of criminality and poor wealth distribution whenever someone's point them out to you you try to redirect it to some other country like if you believed that the country that you live in an see everyday was some sort of developed country, maybe developed enough that only Scandinavians "have the right to criticize you".
When it comes to the crime rate I find it hypocritical that a person from a country with a crime problem just as serious if not worse criticizes my country as though his country has absolutely no crime at all or even if there is it is the very minimal "You will find a few pickpocketers and petty thieves so keep your wits about you and you will be safe" type of crime which obviously isn't the case in Mexico (nor South Africa) which is where the remark about the Scandinavian countries came in.
