Please Add access to Electricity to your list. I'm writing this whilst visiting Madagascar. Here is a country where 85% of the population live of less than $200 per year and a similar number have no access to electricity as well as clean water. Most of them grow their own food and the place is pretty safe these days.
The internet Cafe where I'm access OSNEWS (via 19,200baud dialup!) is running Knoppix on all its PC's but counterfeit copies of XP abound.
