Compared to the USA, then yes, these are all far more progressive nations (even Ireland in most ways) -- but I would be careful of labelling them 'socialist'.

Well they do have things like universal publicly funded health care schemes, good welfare and unemployment benefits, etc. Most of our Republican freinds here seem to think those things are "socialist" - and some of them seem to equate socialism, or even Social Democracy, with Soviet style communism.
