What makes you think that this world is not perfect and how would you define perfect? To be able to define perfect would necessitate a capability beyond, what is now, human achievement.
Perfection does not exist. If you would disagree, perhaps, you can demonstrate an example. If one subscribes to the belief in a supernatural deity, then the questions of, why would a perfect god create an imperfect being and place him in a imperfect world, have to be asked. And does such a creation denote imperfection in itself?
To directly answer your question, we are an evolved and evolving species of life in accordance with the material structure of our planet, solar system, galaxy and universe. No perfection here, just things defined by us. Kind of exciting isn't it?
Perfect, like normal, is a construct of society. It doesn't really exist, we just think it does. If we classify perfection as order, than that distinction is one that is better to quantify with.
Imperfection, or chaos, is one of the building blocks of the universe. It's the reason we exist, and what makes the universe work. To have complete order would mean stagnation and destruction.
Check out "Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking", he actually talks about about how the universe and us would not exist if it weren't for the chaos built in to the process. Sorry to turn the philosophical into the scientific.
The second law of thermodynamics (Entropy) explains the reasons behind chaos and disorder in the world/universe.
However, the answer to your question may have more of a philosophical basis than anything because it depends on your perspective and your definition of "perfection."
Everything is perfectly what it is. If you drop a cup and it breaks, then the cup is now a perfectly broken cup. There could not be in the universe another more perfectly "that cup broken."
This isn't mere semantics. This is attitude and worldview.
Those who view the world as imperfect and dangerous, are forever at effect. Those who view the world as perfect and friendly, are forever seeing possibilities that others miss.
Even the crimes of Hitler and Stalin were perfect. Such evil is helping to fulfill prophecy and the reawakening of spirit.
Those who do evil are moving further from Truth and awakening, but their actions are helping others by the very nature of the contrast between evil and Love.
