    Here is one person's page with many of the stats compiled into one analysis. He leans heavily toward Scandinavian countries based on his results.

    Which Countries Set the Best Examples?

    Personally, I consider the subjective quality of life to be the most important factor for choosing where to live.

    Personally, I think that quality of life is rapidly becoming obsolete. "Quality of lack-of-a-life" is more the ticket. And as long as you have somewhat tasty snacks, a roof, a functional computer and a dysfunctional forum, what more do you need? Who cares if it's 45 degrees celsius and polluted outside, if you hardly get out there?

    No but seriously, i'd take 45 degrees any day to get out of this dark place they call Sweden But for me, I really like being out on the sea a lot better than being on land. Sure, there are storms. But what the hell. It's life.

    I hereby vote for THE SEA, that is the best place to live
    and here comes a little.. "yarrr": YARRRRRRRRRRR!

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Australia: Because kangaroos are cool.

    Iceland: Because it's the [ethnic]est place on Earth.

    Norway: Because I like the language

    Sweden: Because it's similar to Norway.

    USA: Because I don't have to spend an arm and a leg to make a trip there.

    If you ask me, a Norwegian, the Swedish language is way cooler than the Norwegian.

    Why is that? Is Swedish more semantically rich or more expressive?

    Well, really, all the Nordic languages (Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and Icelandic) are similar. I actually like Icelandic the best, because it's a language that has remained relatively unchanged over the years.

    That guy has done his homework. Pretty much what I had in mind. To me health care & social security are the most important factors.

    What on Earth do they mean by human development in Human Development Index? I'd say that's pretty subjective and shouldn't even be taken into consideration.

    you can bet anything that I'd be right back in South America without a second thought if I had the opportunity! I don't care if there's a high crime and poverty level- I love the culture and food and people so much that I'd live there no matter what!

    (lovely people, lovely land, wonderful food... I miss Brazil!)
