I'm not asking where to move if WWIII is about to start or some other horrible catastrophe. I mean right now today if your fed up with America and decided to move where would you go and why? Where do you think the most stable region/country to live in might be?

I don't liven in the U.S but still would like to make a recommendation.

You could all move here; Finland. Population density is low and the groud plate is solid over here. Most of the people speak English or at least understand it.

What else..We are friendly and down-to-earth. I just don't know whether the vicinity of Russia would mean something in case the WWIII started.

Australia mate. The weather is great, the women are great, and you'll probably feel right at home, because a large portion of our culture is really just American culture with the word "mate" sprinkled here and there.

It's stable, but Australia is next door to the big Asian players. But, unless China or Indonesia decide to invade us, it's all good.

If you wanted real stability and a sizable enough population to feel good, I'd suggest New Zealand. I made a pact last year - if John Howard was going to be elected again this year, I'd haul-ass to NZ. Alas, he got thrown out, so I'll stick around a while longer.

Well, I also don't live in the USA (Canada for me) but this is a good question. If you are fed up with how the US is then going to a country that is similar wouldn't help because you would eventually run into the same thing you left USA for in the first place. Canada would be nice if only because of the huge land mass and lots of places for one to go into the wild but....again we're a lot like the States so.....

Im going to go with either the Mayan Riviera in Mexico (Im biased because I just got back from my honeymoon there) its very nice and cheap. Other than that, maybe Costa Rica or Belize.......I like tropical weather as you may have noticed. If we're talking about leaving the continent then New Zealand or Cambodia might be nice too.

I am down with Australia. I think Thailand would also be nice as well. The Philippines also appeal to me.

Without the eminent threat of invasion or catastrophe here are some places and things I would consider.

In no particular order:

If I need a job to support myself:

Australia = America Lite with a lot of land. English spoken.
New Zealand = Same as above. A little bit more remote with western influence.
Singapore = English is the language of business. First world feel and influence.
Dubai = Same as Singapore.
Iceland = Same as New Zealand. Although the dark times of year would suck.
I would consider the major Scandanavian(sp) countries as well if it wasnt so cold and dark most of the time.

If I didnt have to work (meaning I had a lot of money):

Many of the Carribean Islands - Although considered 2nd and 3rd world English is the primary language throughout the area.
Philipines - English is the official language but you can live like a king for less than USD 50K a year. So imagine if you had a boat load of money.

Oh yeah Canada... they are our friendly neighbor to the north

Id have to say England myself. I live in the US but I have visited England a couple of times and it rocks. Or Ireland. Yea them Irish girls have the sexiest accents I have ever heard in my life. No offence to Ausi Girls but your accents are not that sexy.

Irish girls however sound like angels singing when they talk. Just my honest opinion.

For me, most likely it would be canada. I grew up about 45 minutes from canada and used to go there on the weekends back when I was 19,20,21 years old. Id probably pick vancouver bc as the place I would be living in IN canada.

I'd say new zealand for me but if everybody goes there, then wont that bring the problem to the place too? Honestly it's situation dependant. Travelling halfway around the world during troubled times may not even be worth the trouble...or it may be plain dangerous. You couldn't travel by conventional means (airplane) because that would put you back on the grid. I'd say for 80% of the problems the US, infrastructure, or society will face, I'd just hole up somewhere in the US that is remote. For other catastrophies, I'd may very well need to throw the deuces up to the US. Where I go, who knows, will be somewhere desolate and not commonly thought of so it would make the trouble not worth the time or money spent to find me.

Iceland, but they don't allow guns and they are beyond socialist. So that being said, I am not aware of any other country that allows private firearm ownership to the extent they do in the US(so far). Also Iceland has no standing army and the South would have to break off into the sea before I'd leave Dixie.

I've always considered Australia, but I thought I have seen the U.S. politics trying to creep in there more in the past couple years or so...

... the other thought, as QB noted, is Costa Rica... I haven't looked too closely into that, but a friend of mine moved there. He came back to the States one time to visit for 2 weeks and I don't think he has come back since then. He seemed very happy with it all and he was a bit of a wild/crazy guy, so he apparently wasn't being 'held down' from being himself in CR.

Doesn't Woody Harrelson own an island? That sounds like a good option. Owning your own island, that is... not sure about living on one with crazy Woody though

Whatever you do don't go to France!
Come over to sunny Devon! - well it's sunny today at least.

The UK gets some bad press but it's nice and stable - all you survivalists will enjoy the varied terrain up on Dartmoor and the other moors - good road, rail, air and sea links. If you REALLY felt like if France and the rest of Europe is literally a swim away (thought I'd suggest the ferry).

And to boot it's still $2's to every £1!! - oh hang on... that's no good if your coming from the US
- oh well a clotted cream scone well make it all better. - Then we can go cow tipping.

For me...Australia, hands down...if they'll let me in.

The Greek Isles....

Since I'm going on holiday in July, to the Baltic, there might not be a 'homeland' left to come back to....I hear Sweden is nice....

Actually this thread has just reminded me that I have not seen my passport in a couple of years
- I reported in lost and cancelled it - just never got round to replacing it.. Better do that just in case excrement meets electrical appliance.

The Caribbean without a doubt. Most likely Antigua. My family lives down there and it truly is paradise. Cost of living is low, and the population is around 700,000.

The people are laid back, and there are 365 beaches, one for each day of the year.

N_T.....just when I think someone made laugh for the last time, you come along and make it happen again!!!!

I still want to live in the Southern stars to see.

How about Tierra del Fuego????

Costa Rica would be good not only for the climate but they are very Canadian friendly. Also its not too far to go from there to get into the jungles of South America plus you have quick access to the Pacific AND the Atlantic if need be. Most of the population can speak english as well. If you know a little spanish, that area would be perfect.
