I'm guessing East Asian countries top the list. Any input would be great.

Your question is rather vague. The best and worst (or perhaps you mean the easiest vs. most difficult) countries based on what criteria and specific teaching situations?

Sorry, I meant in terms of job availability and not having to teach adults. In Japan, for example, you can make a decent amount of money teaching nothing but kids and never have to go near a class full of adults.

Would that be teaching grades k-12 in international, public, or vocational schools as a licensed content or language teacher? Or ?

If you speak a wee bit of French and can legally work in Canada, then come to Quebec Cool

Depends on your country of passport.

If you hold a passport from: UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia or NZ and have a degree then East and SE Asia are easy to find "kids only" work as a teacher (language teacher or subject teacher).

If you do not hold a degree and/or are not from an anglophone country then most of East Asia falls off the radar in terms of legal work as a teacher.

Franly, wherever there are children, there's a need for teachers. Having the right nationality, an up-to-date teaching license from your home state/country and teaching experience (in your degree major) will offer plenty of long-term, lucrative opportunities in international schools and many public schools worldwide. For example, the UAE is a hotspot for teaching in int'l schools for those with the right qualifications.

You haven't provided any teacher criteria such as possessing or lacking a degree and/or a current teaching license. Generally, qualifications can change based on the employer's needs, whim, or level of desperation. Moreover, visa regulations can dictate the required qualifications for employment, which impacts one's ability to work legally if their quals fall short or they hold the wrong passport.
