That is why we in northern Europe probably are so poor, so unimaginative and live in such a depressing state I think...

Yes, the Scandinavian countries are the happiest in the world! Denmark, Norway, Finland and The Netherlands. My country! Finland and The Netherlands are strictly not Scandinavia but we are all very close to eachother anyway you look at it (Finnish and FIns are quite different though, I can't understand a spoken or written word there)..But that is not the point.

"While basic living standards are essential for happiness, after the baseline has been met happiness varies more with the quality of human relationship than with income," the report read. "Policy goals should include high employment and high-quality work; a strong community with high levels of trust and respect, which government can influence through inclusive participatory policies; improved physical and mental health; support of family life; and a decent education for all."

Based on its "life evaluation score," which is rated on a scale of 0-to-10, the report found that Denmark, Norway, Finland and the Netherlands outstripped all other nations with an average score of 7.6 between them.

BTW: we also rank in the top as being the least religious....

America is not doing so bad. It is 11th. But it is all about being a winner. Being as good as it gets. We are doing much better!
