The Top Ten

1
Canada
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.
It's safe, no war, it's beautiful and there is almost no criminals.
I know that 'cause I live here.

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...

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!

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.
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.
I'd move here if I could, just for all the theme parks. It seems a lot more EXCITING than the uk.

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.

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).

6Japan
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.

7New 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.

8Norway
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!

Education system, health care, work opportunities, kind and tolerant people, stable economy, safe place to be, social security, social benefits on need, freedom of speech, almost zero crime, lovely summer, quite and white winter, excellent local transportaion, lakes, woods, harbours, lovely cruise trips, healthy food, absolutely enjoing living here.

12Italy
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.
Italy is the worlds 7th largest economy is a nice country to live in, best food in the world, 2nd best healthcare in the world, best country to raise a child and is one of the most visited countries in the world it should be one of the first best countries
Art, culture, landscape, wonderful coasts, mountains, nice weather, food, friendly people, taste for life... For each aspect you can find another place to compare, but there is no country that have all this...

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.

Switzerland is an amazing country. I love it for many reasons, including the countries it is surrounded by. I particularly enjoy France, Italy and Germany. I has such verity, and is so beautiful!

18Austria
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 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.
Austria is beautiful and peacful and affordable and have nice citizens who cares

19Brazil
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!
A happy country with nice people and beautiful sights! Cheers from your Argentina!
This county is a paradise with diverse food, culture, and people. There is no other better place to have a vacation.

20Ireland
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...

21Greece
Bad economy but wonderful people, beautiful nature, amazing islands, excellent weather. There is funny and good-humored mood all the time. It's a country where it's very impossible to feel depressed or bored. Number one country if you want to have fun...
A country with history, healthy food, sea and mountains.. And also friendly people..
Greece is amazing in all aspects... bad economy at the moment but it will change, if all of us Greeks came back home and improve the country and get rid of illegals that cross the sea borders, and rob and destroy our cities and islands and we take over our country and be proud of it like Melina Mercouri done, I am sure things would change... We would not need to ask for money from Germans or EU. We could all live happily just by tourism and agriculture, export... something to think about! Great place!

24Turkey
First of all Turkey is located in Eurasia. It is not a middle-eastern country nor european. İt has also territory on continetn of europe. The Turkish culture is not eastern or western. If you have never been in that country seeing it would be so surprising. Turkish people are Turkish not Arabian. Turkey is a muslim country but it lives Islam in a very different way from any other muslim country. It is the most free country in middle east. It is safe. Climate is mostly meditterranean. The history is fascinating and thanks to Ottoman Empire which had territories on three different continents the cultural diversity of Turkey is surprising. As an eruopean citizen who lived almost 10 years in Turkey, I can say that it is a safe, free and beautiful place which west and east meet. Media shows it like an arabic country but the fact is so different. It is one of the best places to live on the planet I think. ıt has amazing beaches on south coast, amazing forests and tea gardens on north coast, amazing ancient greek atmospher on west coast and amazing rich, ancient east atmospher in the east. You don't have to take a plane to go to europe from asia, a bridge between two continents is ready for give an uniqe experience.
Turkey has got a fascinating and magnificent history, very friendly peoples, very delicious foods, Istanbul and very beatiful girls :D
I love this country.
I lived in Turkey for 1-2 years and I have to say I'm very suprised. It is a state that is not in EU but it feels like it actually is in the EU. People here are friendly and most of them speaks English. Life standarts, places to see, foods to experience. And those brunette girls.. Can a man ask for more?

28Romania
When you travel through Romania, it's like traveling through several countries at once. The landscape can change so fast, that one minute you see a mountain and the next you can see a lake or a plain. Agriculture, especially bio-agriculture, is one of the country's most important income sources.

Tourism is also a great way to discover Romania. Tourists can listen to the call of nature and return to their roots while enjoying their holiday here.

Romanian people are pretty much good at everything, and if they're not, they'll try until they succeed.
Traditions are sacred, especially in historical areas of Maramures and Bucovina.

Of course, Romania is the country of DRACULA, therefore Halloween manages to gather many tourists, especially Americans.

Living here is affordable if you have your own business. Otherwise, you have to work pretty hard to make ends meet and afford other expenses than basic needs. State jobs are poorly paid compared to private sector jobs.
The health care system needs a reform, and although people who financially contribute to it should receive free medical care, they don't always do or it isn't at high standards. Plus, medical staff is used to being bribed because of the low salaries in the system. More and more people needing medical attention resort to private clinics, although they have to pay for the services.

The educational system is different from other countries, meaning we have more classes based on theoretical notions than practical ones. As to what concerns higher education, many foreigners come to Romania to study at medical schools, because of the low taxes (approximately 1100 euros/year for citizens). Other BA programs have even lower taxes. Preparatory language courses are held for foreigners who wish to study in Romania.
Romania has a upper-middle income economy. And is a member of the UE (European Union). Here, tourism focuses on the country's beautiful natural landscapes and its rich history. We also have a very strong military and a very low crime rate compared to the United States and many other European countries..
It is very cheap and beautiful. You can easily live with less than 400 euros a mounth (including rent). You have mountains, beaches, plains, castles, cities with various cultural themes, kind people, best clubs in the world, breathtanking environment,. In one word is awesome!

I love Poland and I always will. Kocham Cię Polsko. Polish economy is one of the fastest in terms of growth in Europe.
Some beautiful architecture, smart people, bloody awesome history and a very strong sense of patriotism. Quick improvement and one of the fastest mobile internet in the world.
Poland is probably the best country in terms of freedom, democracy, peoples IQ, tolerance, etc. Not like some pseudo-democratic countries of the EU. The healthcare could be better, though. I've gotten a job there and moving in 2 months. Can't wait!

40South Africa
Great Place, Lovely weather... People are great. There are amazing places to visit. Huge country with brilliant tourist potential. Although the rulers of the country really need to get their act together to step up security and invite tourist back to South Africa.
By far the best country in the world, the only problem is the fact that people can't get over the past. Awesome nature good infrastructure and great people despite their individuality.
Is not the best country to live in. I should know, I live here. Crime is very high and there is no equality. Corruption in goverment is high and the constitution only coveres the criminal, what about the victims? Because of this, there are more criminals coming to South Africa, and they get away with anything without prosecution.

42Vietnam
People always think bad about Vietnam, but Vietnam is not like you think, Vietnam is gradually going up development, but there are some who have not been good personality but that's just the tip of the iceberg alone, the people of Vietnam, the development of energetic love life of freedom and peace. Especially that Chinese people always talk bad about the people of Vietnam, because they just lie and slander only, they invaded the territory of Vietnam, they have our bad games before, the Central Nations are undermining Vietnam and no one else, would signify a person can make China more friendly looking little about our human Vietnam. Thanks for reading
Don't say bad things about Vietnam! It's a great country! And no, people don't arrest each other who talk about freedom. Vietnam is developing, I wouldn't be surprise if she makes it to top 10 some day =))
Vietnam is not a horrible country! Sure, it could be cleaner than it is, and I am south Vietnamese so I don't like communist either, but that doesn't mean that the citizens are bad!

Just because of the conflicts between Israel and its Muslim neighbors, doesn't mean it is a bad place to live in. It is the only democratic nation in the Middle-east and has the best standard of life in the region too, plus it is economically advanced and stable.
Great country. Sure, it has a ton of wars, but if they weren't threatened as much by it's neighbors, I bet that it would be a very peaceful nation
Best people. Bad taxes, stable and the wars doesn't effect our hapinnes of life here we rise fast up from anything.

53Ukraine
The worst country, worse than Ukraine only Africa. Dirty poor country, bad products, bad foods, very low wages, few jobs, very low standard of living, half the country's fascists and Nazis, life is not safe, the country is falling apart. I live in Ukraine and want to go to Russia or Belarus, I think better go to Russia
I live in this country, and I can say that the life in here is not as bad as in others. The main problem is LAW. The capital city is turning into Moscow every year.
The food is delicious, people are cheerful, country is more European than Russia. I'm proud of my Motherland. Everything would be okey.

54Sri Lanka
It is way better than Mexico for sure. Sri Lanka has a diminutive amount of crime while in the other hand. Mexico is beating the tops in crime. Sri Lanka is better. Sri Lanka is really great, the weather, the pets. They have one of the cutest cats ever!
Sri Lanka is the best country to live in. It's hundred times better than Australia or other European countries. People think its just not a good but you have to live their to find out. Everybody know English, specially in Colombo the capital city and the education is better than any other country and English is our second language and Sinhalese are the best 😊😊
It is super good, I agree with the person. I think Sri Lanka should be crowned king. It is beautiful, no other country can astound this place!

56Maldives
How could everyone forget this place! White Sandy beaches, beautiful corals, cool waves, friendly locals and less violent!
Nice, but a little polluted.
Simply amazing country... heaven on earth...

57Nigeria
I'll put it this way, it is not the best place to live in but it is my favorite place to live in. It has its issues but its not half as bad as what you hear. Many parts of Nigeria are extremely safe and prosperous and as long as you stay street smart then you'll be fine getting around. Our culture is very beautiful because we treat everybody who is close to us like family and we are very family oriented people. We are also hard working and the tribal differences that we have we are gradually working to overcome. While there are some ethnic conflicts do not forget that many Nigerians are mixed ethnically and many have parents from different tribes which goes to show you that slowly are differences are going away. As soon as Boko Haram is properly handled Nigeria will be the top country to live in. However, even with Boko Haram as long as you don't act stupid or go where you're not supposed to go you'll be fine. I lived in America for a long time but I must say I really love Nigeria. The food is great here too, jollof rice, egusi soup, moi moi, okra soup, rice and stew and plenty more. We love to have fun and are generally more relaxed people. We excel above and beyond artistically because we produced the most movies, music, and dances in Africa.
It is a country with potential. The standard of living is amazing and a good place for investments. Lots of companies such as Porsche, Hugo Boss, Mango, Johnny Rockets have stores in Nigeria.
Forget what we see on T.V., Nigeria is a great country. If only the government greed can be taken away, then life will be excellent. The people are friendly and polls say that Nigerians are happy people, suffering and still smiling
Nigeria is a good place to live on I have been in nigeria a lot of good things to
Talk about.

59Tunisia
Wether you are looking for fun, entertainment or broadening your knowledge, Tunisia is the PERFECT place to visit as it combines great local history and culture as well as worldwide well-known resorts. :)
The traditional "medina"s are mesmerizing; as well as the scenery.
From northern to southern cities you will b certainly amazed by this unique experience.
NO ONE can deny that Tunisia is the first arab country to revolt and set a democratic constitution.
Besides, Tunisians are very friendly and open-minded.
Apart from the first 2 years after the revolution, Tunisian economy is getting better and the statistics can prove its brillant standards.

NICE PLACE TO LIVE, GOOD WEATHER, GOOD FOOD, FRIENDLY PEOPLE, JUST RELAX

62Congo

63Dominican Republic
It's a good place to vacation and have a good time, but not to live in. The crime is high a lot of poor people, you cannot walk down the street with a decent phone or a decent pair of sun glasses or you will get mugged. It is a beautiful island no doubt and the people are friendly but its not a place you want to live unless you have money and can afford a nice neighborhood which are very expensive. There are no jobs and there's a reason why Dominicans are migrating to the US. The poor areas of the country are like any 3rd world very poor and unsafe. But again it's a great place to vacation as long as you stay in a resort.
Best country ever, no just to live in, it's best in everything, I love my beautiful island
Bad place to live... A lot of poor people due to a lack of work. Its great for vacation

65Hungary
Hungary is a free country. The countryside is just AMAZING! People are so kind and usually really helpful to foreign people. The climate is just perfect:At winter its snowing a lot, at summer its usually gets above 30 Celcius. Most people are really educated in hungarian schools. Its mostly safe. To include the younger generations speak either English or German. The older ones either can only speak in Russian or hardly anything. Overall Hungary is full of loads of beautiful places to discover and such a kind, welcoming and antiracist people.
Amazing country with amazing people. Budapest is the coolest city I have ever been to. Lots of entertainment, nightlife, food and because the tourist attractions are spread out it doesn't feel overrun with tourist like other European capitals. Hungary is also home to the most beautiful girls in the world and most of them are very friendly.
I lived in Hungary and it's a really nice place. You can get very well educated there, and it offers a very beautiful surrounding. Especially the capital (of course) because of its style, but I can also tell you about a city (not that known one) which is also called "The city of sunshine": Szeged.

66Syria

67Jordan
The most beautiful nation in the Middle East

68Slovakia
Beautiful nature, history on every step in every city :) the most beautiful girls in the world, great beer and sheep cheese dumplings are great :) I'm living there and I love to travel to other countries, but I love Slovakia more. We have everything- mountains, Hight Tatras which are the smallest from the biggest mountains, lakes, castles, caves. Lots of opportunities to have fun, to do sports, etc. We miss only desert and sea with beach :) Our capital Bratislava is small but still is pretty- when it's sunset and you are in the Bratislava's castle it's one of the most pretty views, which you can see. We are calling Bratislava little big city and Slovakia is little big country in the heart of Europe

69Kenya
Can't believe Kenya ranks below Syria and other war torn places... Are you kidding me?

This is the country where Safari was born, where the 7th Wonder of the world WILDEBEEST migration happens, where Snowcapped mountains straddle the Equator!

Biased views about Africa prevail... but all in all... It remains HOME SWEET HOME!
The Most beautiful country in the world. Kenya has nice weather, nice beaches, nice people, holiday places, national parks, mountaineering, hills, all the big give animals, at the coast there is the indian ocean many many more. It is the most beautiful country I 'be ever seen in the world for real.
The best country ever

Guyana is becoming even more civilized then before. The country has improved a lot and they it's becoming to look like America.

S in the world there is only 20 original alphabet as you know ) and ancient culture.

91Bolivia

I love anything African. Mozambique has a rich colonial and traditional history. I would strongly suggest Mozambique.

Colombia today is just WOW. A country with a tough past but a very bright future. I fell in love with the people, its hospitality, the happiness in the air and the wonderful nature. Colombia really is Latin America's rising star!
Beautiful country. Mountains, oceans. It's warm in Cartagena and 70s year round in Bogota. The people are kind and helpful. The food was the best I've ever had (this coming from an American).
Best country to get shot by the cartel

100Mongolia
Mongolia is one of the few countries on Asia still fairly untouched by human hands. It has natural mountains, and beautiful landscapes. To top it off it is likely the only country left in which wild horses outnumber the human population. The country is small, with a small army, but it has a stable economy. It is also democratic, sharing a lot of the same principles with the Unites States bill of rights.
