    I think Nigeria is suppose to be on this list,I don,t expect USA to be on the list No.7 , I have been to so many part of Europe Canada and Asia, I was expecting to see japan and Singapore on this list but damn it American , You are cheat

  2.   

    why not INDIA?

  3.   

    “lmfao is this for real? USA has infrastructure rated at 100??? America has some of the worst infrastructure in the world. In fact, America shouldnt even be on this list lol.”

    The above poster is apparently an idiot. The infrastructure of the United States is wonderful. The national highway system makes traveling between states simple. Nearly everyone in the country has access to HIGH SPEED internet.

    Anyone who has traveled extensively would tend to agree with this list. I have been to South America, Africa, the Phillipines, Poland, Italy, Germany, and France. This list was well researched and pieced together.

    Good job!

    how did you get the results??? climate spain 79 and findland nearly the same?????? spain is sunny nearly all year round, finland is not. so what scoring did you use to get this figures???? did you base it on how many rainy days, how many sunny days and how many cold days???? that could even it out.lots of sun spain diez puans, rainy days zerow puans. finland sunny days sanc puans and rainy days sanc puans. spain 10, finland 10.

    Interesting list. I live in Hungary, but at this moment I can imagine at least 30 other countries where I would like to live. But I am just thinking about economy. Good to see that this list contents other parameters too.

  6.   

    thats for allyssa allysaa or what the fck is named .. shut up and suck u doll :) ;) :D

  7.   

    instead to comment on this list and remain surprised that countries in which you live, not recorded here, and comment that France is so, it asaa, so., you better shut up! And no comment that in France, people urinate on the walls just for not pay at the WC toilets!

    I tell you how it works: we do not pay for the something that can be made elsewhere for free! we have the economic sense in the blood, raising money not throw them senseless! why we are 1st place! and believe me that France is a clean country, not as someone said here! and that someone said that African countries have not entered in the top? zimbague and I do not know who? Let me tell you something about your country of shit .. that the certainly you are African .. you live in the tree and you beat with the monkeys for the bananas and you want to enter in the top? hahaha And the Russian wonder but is not in top? how to be on top when Russia give them food with a ratio! but they say they have president but is really communism. Same thing for the rest of who comments here .. the rest are 0 0 and their countries citizens dont stress it will explode any vein!

    lmfao is this for real? USA has infrastructure rated at 100??? America has some of the worst infrastructure in the world. In fact, America shouldnt even be on this list lol.

  9.   

    There’s no way that USA made this list. Not that I don’t like USA or anything I’m just surprised. And Our infastructure is not 100. Our grade for infastructure in this country is a D. That is a growing problem in our country that we need to work on. And Switzerland has the best infastructure in the world. Theres no way it’s at a 96 and we are 100

  10.   

    This is a joke, right? The US has 100 for infrastructure? Why? Is it our high-speed rail? Our modern power grid? Our pristine roads?

    Whomever compiled this list is an idiot.

  11.   

    It cracks me up that Germany got a higher freedom rating than the US.

  12.   

    lol nice list.

  13.   

    Where is Russia?

  14.   

    This list is complete bullshit. According to UN’s list of best countries to live in Sweden is at third place, I don’t see Sweden anywhere here. Also, Finland is no.1, in this list – 18th.
    This list is obviously constructed after personal opinions and not a legit research.

    Also, people talking about India and the U.S. to be no.1, are you kidding? Have you seen how many poor bastards you have in your country, starving to death in ghetto’s? Get your head of your ass and read a newspaper.

    Other countries in UN’s top 20 who’s missing in this list (Except Sweden, that is); Iceland, Ireland and Japan.

  15.   

    wheres canada??i can smoke all the pot i want here, healthcare, good food, multicultural ..come on now..wtv we’ll keep it a secret!

  16.   

    hmmmm france is first. whr is india?

  17.   

    How is France #1?
    I went to France. It’s not as “happy” as Italy or London.
    Not to mention, I saw people piss in public because they don’t want to pay to use the restroom.
    London doesn’t even have trash cans in public (due to terrorist threats) and they are able to keep their city cleaner than France.
    And, Denmark was named the happiest place on earth.
    Japan is pretty cool (except the fact that there were many gropings that the government made a separate subway train for females only) and the fact that Japan has high suicide rates (along with Korea), but if you guys lived there, I think you guys would hate it. I didn’t like it, and I prefer US over Korea and Japan. So much better here.
    I thought Singapore would make the list.

  18.   

    i agree. Japan is no 1 country with the highest health rate duh. i always heard it everywhere

    definitley thought ireland would have made this list tbh as well as japan

  20.   

    Wtf USA scored 100 in risk and safety ,Yeh i’ll feel pretty safe in a country that lets ya buy guns over the counter as easy as it is there what a joke

  21.   

    You got to be kidding Zimbabwe would have to be one of the most corrupt countries in Africa

  22.   

    i agree. it is definitely missing some countries.
    Japan, China, UK, Ireland, some African Countries,
    like Harare, Zimbabwe is very modern.

  23.   

    USA Should not be on this at all. Japan and a handful of others should be.

  24.   

    This list is a little off
    you are deffinitely missing some countries

  25.   

    Ummm….you should definitely add Denmark there, it was recently named the happiest country in the world, so…

  26.   

    EEUU,SPAIN,ITALY? wtf!!!!…EEUU – violence , Spain – crisis, Italy – racism!…

  27.   

    the pictures are very beautiful speakinb and revealing the impression that there is no corruption and un-justice because of this reason there is no poverty. I declare and announce that the contry in which the justice is common thing and the corruption is known as lurce and
    sin and the people of which contry are honest there the poverty never pass through that contry and no ruler of that contry can dare to commit the offence of corruption and poison of corrupton can,t sepread in the body of that contry .I ,as a commen man, advise the pepple of that contries of which the rulers live luxry life and thier people spend thiet lives in fire of poverty should brought revolation ,wheather blood revolution or politicaly.
