It seems that the concept of freedom is actually fairly poorly understood by many people, it is also interesting that countries traditionally seen as an example of holding 'freedom' ideals are actually steadily sliding down the list.

Having great wealth is not necessarily an indicator of real freedom, I'm broke and I feel free as a bird!

1 New Zealand
2 Netherlands
3 Hong Kong
4 Australia
5 Canada
6 Ireland
7 United States of America
8 Denmark
9 Japan
10 Estonia

Sounds like a great place, I'd love to visit.
