PARIS (AFP) – Norway takes the number one spot in the annual United Nations human development index released Monday but China has made the biggest strides in improving the well-being of its citizens.

The index compiled by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) ranks 182 countries based on such criteria as life expectancy, literacy, school enrolment and gross domestic product (GDP) per capita.

Norway, Australia and Iceland took the first three spots while Niger ranks at the very bottom, just below Afghanistan.

At least it's not Sweden at the top.

All politically correct feminazi animal-loving countries should suffer!

Norway is such a beautiful country. All of the Scandinavian states are.

I hope to move up there when I get a chance. Sort of a 'get back to my roots' thing. I'm glad to see the people there are doing well.
