Poll Question:
Woot! Sweden is the 2nd best country in the world to live in! :D

Check out http://www.norway.org/News/200404Norway_undp.htm

The Human Development Index (HDI), published annually by the UN, ranks nations according to their citizens' quality of life rather than strictly by a nation's traditional economic figures. The criteria for calculating rankings include life expectancy, educational attainment, and adjusted real income.

Sweden is #2, which is pretty cool. Our neighbour country Norway is #1, and they are pretty similar to us except they have oil

This top 20 list might be interesting for people to see where their coutry has placed in the race for quality of life. It sure feels good living in the #2 country Weeee! (the United Nations say so - its scientifically documented)

The top 20:
1. Norway
2. Sweden
3. Australia
4. Canada
5. Netherlands
6. Belgium
7. Iceland
8. United States
9. Japan
10. Ireland
11. Switzerland
12. Britain
13. Finland
14. Austria
15. Luxembourg
16. France
17. Denmark
18. New Zealand
19. Germany
20. Spain


So what do you guys think?


Responses:
The UN is wrong! My country is the best - I can feel it
The UN is right. Norway is the best and Sweden is #2
USA is the best country in the world, regardless of what the UN scientific report say
Sweden is the worst country in the world! >.<
I want to live in Sweden cause of Blond model chicks, free college & free healthcare

This finally proves that Australia is a better place to live than the US and the UK. Thats why we have so many people living in Australia who come from other countries.

Well ... the Bucharest streets surely show that ...
anyway ... according to the mindless Kenya song ... Norway doesn't have lions & tigers ... so ... it shouldn't be the first country on that list ...

Shut up. It all comes back to the people.
Thats why you have such a developed welfare, education, health and who knows what else system.

Australia should be #1, but #3 is good enough (still beats America).

So why isn't there a worst 20 list?
