Top 10 Best Countries to Live In

The Top TenXW

1Canada

Canada's good because our economy doesn't really have any thing to do with war so that tax will be low and if you live in Alberta you don't have to pay PST. If you want to move you don't have to ask the government to move and our economy is now the most stable. If you ask me Canada is the land of the free and we don't worry about people blowing up planes. Canada doesn't own any nuke so people don't think of us as a threat but we are one of the most peaceful places on earth.

"Idiot America is land of the free"

Yeah, America is totally the land of the free. That is why you have your government is spying on you, the police force abusing their power, like that black man who got shot by police in Missouri, and you go to jail for saying bad things about your pathetic government. Yep, totally a place of freedom. Get a grip! Please stop with your arrogance. There are many more countries, like Canada, that are much more free than the police state known as the US.

It's safe, no war, it's beautiful and there is almost no criminals.
I know that 'cause I live here.

Yeah I would like to go Canada too, it has plenty of land and nice people. All you people who think America is not free it is. The only way a person is arrested I because of a threat they say. I can talk crap about the government if I want all day. I can but a gun and walk down the street. Someone might call 911 but I have the right to bear arms. Also Canada has like 35 million people compared to America above 300 million. Of course we have a higher crime rate because there a lot more people here. Its easy to make friends and have fun so I love my country.

I think Canada is the best in terms of freedom, even though I've never been there... I can say these things because I know a lot of people migrating there... And their feed backs about Canada is great...

Canada is the best,

2Australia

Australia is really nice country. Australia is a very high developed country characterized by a very high rank of Human Development Index. This country is also strong in financial, and really multicultural where you can meet people around the world. The citizens are friendly and you can enjoy a freedom life. Australia has it's best city in the world, Melbourne which ranked as the most liveable city in the world. Climate diversity makes Australia become more unique where you can enjoy the tropical climate at the north of the country, desert at the west, and subtropical climate at the southeast of Australia.

If I was a poor man then Australia is the best place to be poor in as it has a great safety net, not too cold and a lot of opportunity to get off the canvas. If I was a rich man then Australia is a great place to live: Good security, Good Weather, Good Beaches, Good Food and Good Business opportunities. Canada- Weather is lousy, US- No safety net, so it has low security, Europe - Too much Government interference and weather is lousy. New Zealand is similar to Australia to except the place has too many New Zealanders. Thailand is Up there with Good places to live if you had a few bucks. At the end of the day it is up to what you want : for me it is about : Good Air, Good Food, Good Water, Good Weather, Good scenery and the economic freedom and health to enjoy them.

Easily the coolest country on earth. One of the only truely free countries. You can do what you want, whenever you want. As long as you don't get caught of course!

Great country, lovely people beautiful nature

3United States of America

That stereotype is so not true. Most people here are friendly and will help you if you need it. Other than the enormous amount of political correctness forced on us, we have the freedom to do just about anything as long as it's not abusively illegal. Everybody in the world takes great risks to come here---I live right on the Mexican border and thousands get through every day. We need jobs and a sane political system, neither Democrats nor Republicans. We need a president who puts American citizens' needs first before special interest groups or foreign nations. Regardless, I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Well said. America is the most friendly nation in the world. If you leave for awhile and come back, the friendliness will shock you. Going elsewhere in the world, some people are put off by the friendly nature of Americans. I think they see it as either shocking or fake, and thus don't like it.

If you have a dream, America is the place to make it happen. Don't believe the hype! America is beautiful and full of opportunity.

A dream that is only for the white 1%. If you are poor or a minority your screwed! Wow your country is amazing!

Stunning architecture, marvellous food, caring people, structured government and rules and it's a very organised country. The United States of America is a spectacular country with diverse things all around it. The only problem is that the crime rate can scare people away from this country. But most countys, cities and neighborhoods are safe and have police trooping around them 24/7. And, this is the place where dreams come true. Although many people don't have jobs and the people who do gain little money, most celebrities started their career in the U.S.A. and the people here are really caring and helpful. If you're locked out of your house, you can call 911 and they can gladly help you open it. And if you're walking down the road, people just say "Hi! " to you out of respect. That is true kindness. This is the place were you can see various musical performances, millions of game shows and celebrities on tours in real-life. And this is the center of food, especially when it come to fast food. Overall, with this proof, The United States of America is a gorgeous, good-natured, sophisticated and full of sun-dried personalities. - davakoh

The best country of all time

4Sweden

Swedes are very kind and are very environmentally conscious. Swedes have a high equality rate and are full of culture. Alfred Nobel, a swede, invented dynamite(not the song)and other swedes invented the zipper and the wrench.

Freedom and love all over the country. That's the way of living.

Beautiful country. I lived in Sweden for now 6 years and I don't regret anything. I was from Norway before but Sweden is seriously the best place I've been to.

No matter your sexuality, race, gender identity, or anything, Swedes will love you just the same.

5England

I love England. Free healthcare. Democracy, (in America, they say we have "democracy", but we don't. Far from it actually). Education, education is WAY better in the UK. Children actually know something. Housing is cheaper(yes, houses are smaller). Cars are cheaper and get better MPG(again, cars are smaller). Shopping is cheaper, people can actually afford to eat healthy in the UK. People are friendly, and closely knit communities. Acceptance, they accept anyone of all differences. Same sex marriage is going to be legal soon, so I can get married, there instead of the US. And the monarch helps the country, in good times and bad, she is always there for us, and gives us something to be proud of. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

Very nice place to live but every journey/holiday takes forever to get to England, the last time I went there was brilliant.

Everyone in England, looks out for each-other and cares for anyone, who comes to the country as an immigrant.
Oh yeh, and we have free health care (like Canada).

I live in England and it's the best place in the world to be

6Norway

Norway has one of the highest life satisfactions. Meaning the people in Norway are living in the happiest Country on Earth. The crime rate is moderately low, the environment is clean. The environment is magical and the people are happy. And they have potatoes.

I have visited this country several times. One of the best social security system in the world. People with disabilities living in a very good quality life. Clean environment with very hygienic food.

I've been to Norway several times, and it's the greatest country I know! People are so nice, the crime rate is low, but it has unusually high taxes, and everything is extremely expensive. I had to spend 25 bucks on a cup of normal black coffee. But it is a really awesome country!

It's Beautiful, Clean, Happy, etc. Seriously, it's the best

7Germany

Clean places and very good infrastructure.

Germany living standard is much more higher than the USA.

Germany and Japan are the most popular countries on earth, according to the BBC Poll.

I love Germany so much!

8Japan

I was there about 20 yrs ago and I still remember vividly how great the japanese. I can not forget all the beautiful places and the outstanding hospitality of this country. I highly recommend to each traveler to at least count in to visit Japan so they can experience the honesty and purity of the culture. The best way to educate kids the importance of family and descipline will go further on each individuals morals and lige being. I plan to go back and visit Japan before it is too late for me to travel, the number one country of ASIA.

High Tech countries and very polite people.

I'M A JAPANESE I KNOW THAT THERE IS LESS ACCIDENTS HERE AND Japan's economy has been up and down for well over a decade now and considered to be in a stagflation state or in a period of very slow growth. When a major disaster occurs in a country that is experiencing economic flatness, the rebuilding effort calls for new investments and purchases which spur demand and also business. In light of this, foreign investor's (at least the smart ones) may look to buy Japanese companies' stocks and other Japanese financial instruments.

World's most disciplined country.

9New Zealand

9/10 by far one of the most awesome countries to live in. It has so much. Theme parks, volcanoes, kind people, and so much more. C'on who wouldn't want to go see where lord of the rings, the hobbit and king kong was filmed swell as hundreds more. What can't yo do here? There's very little crime, no shortages of water, food, air :3. The best country...

Stunning, perfect, beautiful place, New Zealand has everything from peace and tranquility to snowcapped mountain peaks, ancient exotic flora and forna, wild and wonderful, golden calm beaches, brilliant star gazing, awesome towns/cities/untouched national parks, friendly caring people, unique culture and history, stunning food and wines and the coolest little capital in the world. There is something for everyone there. Way better that Australia and number 1 in the world for me!

Great place to live if you love the outdoor scene New Zealand is the place. Full of wonderful helping people a lot of spirit and love for each other and the environment is pristine. A must for people to come visit for holidays. Good clean green environment.

If I ever chose somewhere to live, it would be here! - LegendaryProdigy

10France

Wonderful country, peaceful,.kind people, famous food, healthcare...

So various landscapes, there are some villages which look to be villages of medieval tales.

France is like a dream, we had the chance to go to Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora and Marquesas Islands. Besides the fact that these places are simply marvelous, splendid, is so amazing to know that it is part of France.

Here you have among the most beautiful coral reefs (UNESCO) and gorgeous beaches in the world.

France is so different, has a so rich culture and history and so peaceful areas to live in, it is the bucolic country.

And if you need you BBQ, no problems, here you can eat everything you want because you will also find cuisine from lots of other countries.

It is No 2 for McDonalds in the world after USA.

It's true that French are not the best in spoken English, but they are not the worst compare to some countries around.

And most of people speak only their own native language, so it's something understandable.

We plan to live there at least half of the time.

Love France, Is World's Most Visited countries, Top Five on Healthcare and It's not too struggling to do business there, Love Paris.

France is one of the most visited countries, south of France is great!
Food's delicious nice people too! Superb and astonishing colors
Great place to live (I should know! )

I think France is the best place to be because it has such a beautiful sites and landscapes you can think of

15Brazil

I live in Brazil but travel abroad mostly to Europe and other South America countries.

I can for sure say that our food is the best in the world, a mix of italian, german, portuguese, african, native americans foods that makes it simply perfect.

We have great nature, rainforests, rivers, amazing beaches and a very nice climate. We have no international issues or war.

Only problems are government corruption, cost of living rising and violence in the big cities, in the smaller ones you can have a very high standard of living, mostly in south Brazil, considered a mini Europa like region in terms of climate (colder) and quality of life, I recommend the smaller citie in Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina states, low crimes, high quality of life and great landscapes!

This county is a paradise with diverse food, culture, and people. There is no other better place to have a vacation.

A happy country with nice people and beautiful sights! Cheers from your Argentina!

I think that Brazil is a very pretty country

16Austria

Simply stunning. Travelled all over Europe and Austria is the most beautiful country I've seen and experienced. Cities are clean friendly, happy and gorgeous. People appreciate and value their living space. Great environment for families. Rural areas of Austria like Tirol and Pinzgau are incredible. Breathtaking scenery. Awesome skiing and even better in summer. Austria is better known for wonderful skiing in Winter but Summer is also a great time of the year to experience other mountain sports. If you like cities, Austria is perfect and if you prefer the countryside, look nowhere else! Overall: 9.8/10

Austria is a fantastic country with great nature and people. The living standard and safety is of the same high level as in Germany, but the people are partially more chilled and down to earth. It's a great for doing every outdoor activity you can imagine, and most of the cities have a beautiful historical old town.

Austria has the best living full city in the world Vienna. The best coffe and sachertorte in the world. If you don't won't do life in the best living full city you can change do the Mountains is a good difference because no country has so beautiful Mountains. Why did over 100.000.000 people come to Austria. Also Austria has no war and only 5% living below the poverty line. 4,2% are unemployed. 50% are upper class.

Best Country in the World

17Spain

Great climate, great cities, historically significant, rather nice people, great geographical placement. Never been there, but from what I know about Spain it seems like the best country to live in.

I reckon that Spain tops these countries because great food, medditerranian sea at your doorstep and if it gets to hot the flights to anywhere are super cheap.

I went to Spain last year, and I really LOVE IT! GREAT country, the people, the food, the culture, I really left a part of my heart there... Sniff

Spain is great it's careful and relaxing but sometimes it can get over the top haha

18Italy

I am Nigerian and has to say that Italian people are pure racist.
They treat me as a slave, as nothing, in the best case they talk to me like as a kid.
I do speak myself 4 languages, I am surely better than most of them, but they will never accept than a black guy can be better than them, a big shame.
The only job we can get as migrants, even after years, is selling bags, glasses etc.. In front of supermarkets.

But we will stay here, because we have to be more and more numerous to reverse the current situation.
It should be number 1 of the worst country.

The best Pizza, Lasagna and spaghetti in the world. Pizza was "invented" in Naples around 1860s. Pizza is one of the very few words which is understood all over the world. The ice cream cone is an Italian invention.

Correction:

Italy is (NOT ANYMORE) the worlds 7th largest economy is (NOT) a nice country to live in, (NOT THE) best food in the world, (NEVER BEEN THE) 2nd best healthcare in the world, (NOT THE) best country to raise a child (THE HIGHEST RATE OF OBESITY FOR KIDS IN Europe) and etc etc..

Italian are just liars... Never trust what they say, never buy what they make (Made in Italy is in fact a pure Made in China).. EU will punish them for that and else.

Better stay in America, we have more.

Pizza has been invented in Central Asia (NOT IN ITALIA) and Pasta in China (NOT IN ITALIA)..

Please update your knowledge and stop spreading false information.

19Ireland

I had no idea about the Irish people before the Uefa Euro 2012... But after that hilarious event... I realised that the irish are the most openminded and stunning people on earth... Simply the kindest... And dublin is just impressive! Ireland is really a great spot on earth to live in... Love you irish people!

I live in Ireland, and can safely say its one of the best places to live, and I've travelled a lot! There's good culture, the people are friendly, has always been a neutral country, very peaceful and no enemies! Great standards of education, from indants to university, beautiful scenery, good climate, although rains a bit more than perhaps desired, land is very fertile and there is no shortage of sun eithear! Not to mention that there are great facilities all over the country, and it is our own country abd always has been we didn't steal it of natives, we are the natives! Great overall standard of living.

People are nice and relaxed and beautiful country. Only bad thing is the wheather...

I am part Irish but mostly German
