Simply the Best....

So, you want to live in the best country in the world, huh? Guess what? You're going to have to pack your bags and move. According to this report, you could actually choose 11 other countries to improve your options (I personally disagree with Norway as a selection...I can't imagine they collected the data in early February).

So who is number one? My people, of course.

Very interesting. I am a bit sceptical though. How can Finland beat the United States when it's in the top ten for the highest suicide rates in the world?

Rank Country Suicides per 100,000 inhabitants per year
1 Lithuania 42.0
2 Russia 37.4
3 Belarus 35.0
4 Latvia 34.3
5 Estonia 33.2
6 Hungaryk 32.1
7 Slovenia 30.9
8 Ukraine 29.4
9 Kazakhstan 28.7
10 Finland 24.3
