Of course it is Denmark. The US is a dismal 18th behind the land down under and many others. The study took access to medicine, sanitation, shelter and security along with a number of other things into account.


Australia ranks ninth out of a total of 128 countries, the United Kingdom comes in 12th while the United States is 18th.

Basic human needs includes data on access to medication, sanitation, shelter and security; wellbeing takes in information on education, access to communications and environment; while opportunity covers rights, freedoms, tolerance, and access to higher education.

I always wonder how Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Canada seem to fair so well. Damn socialists and their great rated countries.

While being a developed nation is key to being on the upper half of the scale, the top ten spots are due to sparse populations. It doesn't really have much to do with socialism, especially since in the technical sense, those are all capitalist nations in the top ten spots.

Too cold, and the food sucks.

They need to import Jamaican and Thai chefs immediately.

And build a huge dome over the whole island to keep it warm.

The US hasn't had capitalism in many many decades.

It's politically incorrect to point this out, but that list is largely made up of culturally homogeneous populations. The more diverse a nation's religious and social priorities are, the more fractured it becomes and the less possible it is to get everyone on the same page without some significant external factors.

True,

But it does boil down to $$$$.

And from what I have seen, there is plenty of that-it is just a matter of where it is going.

That's not accurate us it? The key factors appear to be national wealth and provision of social welfare /wealth redistribution. I don't read think race is as big a factor as those two.

Canada is a very diverse nation that has embraced multiculturalism. It's not about being homogenous or not.

Culture involves a lot more than race though, doesn't it? The US is a hodgepodge of cultures, each placing different degrees of value to self reliance, work ethic, social welfare, even education...

Iceland is not so much "socialist" as it is a DIRECT Democracy where the CITIZENRY actually has a say in what does and does not occur in their country. When America was bailing out corrupt bankers and corporate CEOs, Iceland was jailing theirs. You know why? It certainly isn't because it's "socialist."
