I've heard this said about New Zealand too, but never been there myself either. I must say though, I have met a number of New Zealanders and found the majority to be most pleasant. Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is the meth problem you speak of? (Methylated Spirits?)

Huarez in Peru, there is not a more beautiful setting for such a tranquail town. In the middle of the Andes it is amazing.

Agreed, solitude and tranquility are much underrated qualities. One of the attractions of living in a remote location is this, along with being free from many of the influences that can hinder city life.

The greastest country in the world is...... THe one were you are from. That country molded all of your experiances, taught you it's values and culture. It made you who you are, it's your home. You can leave the country, but the country will never leave you. Be proud of where your from.

Fantastic answer! Every country is the greatest country to it's own people.

If you were about to raise a child, and could choose any country in the world to raise this child, no strings attached, which country would you choose and why?


1) Ireland. 2) Canada. 3) Australia. 4) US of A.



Which country provides the optimum balance of political stability, opportunity, freedom, social climate, weather and other ideals to raise a child? [Edited by Don W]


I know several people from Ireland. I like them. I believe the Irish have suffered much over the past 2 centuries, which tends to give a people a better perspective on the world in 2006.

I like Canada. It is too cold for me, except BC, but then, I can’t afford to live in BC.

I like Australia. I met some good men in 77 Squadron in Korea. I have worked for 2 Aussies in America. My favorite movie is ‘Breaker Morant.’ Edward Woodward is an Aussie icon.

I like America. I was born here. I don’t like the all too often failures to meet its altruistic goals. We are good but not any good-er than Germany to its citizens, or Cuba to its citizens, for example.

To live....Well that could be a number of places. Canada, Any Norse Nation, Germany to name a few.

To raise children I would have to say Canada, hands down.

Not to butt in but I saw this hadn't been answered and thought I could do my bit. I believe he's referring to crystal methamphetamine, its a highly dangerous drug that has reached prevelancy in rural areas as of late. This is because its extremely easy to make but the ingredients are very toxic stuff like ammonia, household cleaning products good stuff like that.

Its a huge problem because the addiction rate is 98% on the first try and its super damaging to the body to the point where addicts look alot like walking corpses. Not like weed where it just sort makes you a retard. I live in rural Saskatchewan (central Canadian province for those of you who don't know) right next to the American border and the meth problem is huge out here in the really small cities and the bigger towns.

If I was wrong about what he was referring to I apologize I just wanted to say something about it seeing as the opportunity presented itself and discourage its use if possible.

P.S. As for the country I'd recommend go Canada!............or the Netherlands, or Norway, or New Zealand, or Italy

I live in America, and of course I love living here and I am most familiar with the kind of life and government and problems we have here BUT I would choose Canada. Canadian life does not seem to be "as fast" as American life is. And I think in America kids are corrupted more easily than most other countries. Not to mention, Canada isn't always in the news, it isn't the "center" of everything. Everyone knows things about America, and what we are doing, or all our problems. Canada is like a more mellow, slightly americanised country. So I would choose there. Plus Canada and America are best of friends
