Country (number of men per 100 women)

2.  Estonia (86)
Russia
Ukraine
5. Armenia (87)
Belarus

    The thing is, though, that these are mostly countries that have achieved this balance by killing off an entire generation or more of young men. So you run some risks.

    On the other hand, at least part of the Soviet bloc’s imbalance is due to rampant alcoholism among males, so you probably don’t have to worry about that!
