Best Country in the World
« see full list
Australia would have to be a serious contender for the Best Country in the world - to live. It is the worlds largest Island, has enormous natural wealth (93% of what the world requires to survive can be found in Australia). Has a population of only 22 million in a country the size of main land US (excluding Alaska) surrounded by some of the very best pristine beaches on the planet. One of the only countries in the world that didn't enter into a recession during the GFC. Has a very small national debt which will be in the black with in 2 years. The most diverse melting pot of different nationalities on the planet (more than the US) and it's beautiful from the tropical heat in the North to the icy snow down south, Australia has it all. I've lived in Europe, the US, Hong Kong and Singapore, traveled the world extensively and easily chose Australia to live permanently. 'It was a very easy choice.
Australia is without a doubt the best country in the world. It's so good that people from other countries risk their lives by jumping on leaky boats, travel half way around the world across dangerous seas just to live here. I don't see anyone jumping on boats to go to India or the Phillipines. Millions of people from every country on earth eagerly migrate to Australia making it the most multicultural society on the planet. People wait in queues for years and years on end just to live in Australia. In fact, becoming an Australian is a huge privilege and not a right. Anywhere you go on earth, the fact that you are Australian is enough to make people envious. People will risk their lives just to become a residemt in Australia (as illustrated by asylum seekers and refugees). Not to mention the the millions in Malaysia and Indonesia who spend years waiting just so they can come live here. High wages, low tax, low unemployment, generous welfare, political stability, free healthcare, beautiful and kind people, beautiful weather, beautiful landscapes, low pollution, low population density, wide open spaces, clean, modern cities and infrastructure, very high human development index, stable economy, longest life expectancy, very peaceful, surrounded by oceans, massive natural wealth, low national debt, I could go on forever. Australia is clearly the greatest country that has ever existed - always has been, still is today and always will be!
I'm not Australian, never been there and don't think I'll ever go there as live and work in UK but from my point of view all 1-3 places are Joke - how can India with that level of pollution, poverty and political arrogance be number 1? Answer is 2nd most populated country on this poor planet - many to vote. Australia with its natural resources, politician independence, unmilitarized system and fantastic social support including HEALTH SYSTEM - (USA - shame on You here) - FOR ME definitely NUMBER 1 - leaving all the rest of contenders miles behind. USA? - lived there long enough to taste bitter life especially trough self-admiring citizens which forgot their sins and don't care about most important factors in civilized societies which are EVERYONE HAS FULL RIGHT TO FREE OR CHEAP MEDICAL SYSTEM AND PRESCRIPTIONS and of course EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM - big bo here for USA - my thumbs down all the way - Choosing between having my kids educated in USA and UK - choice was easy - Cheers for OZees!

Are you serious? Australia at Number 4?
We should be Number 1!
I'm proud to live in Australia, we have amazing beaches, a wide diversity of wildlife..
It's simply Amazing! The sunsets are spectacular and the scenery is to die for!
I agree with the first guy. Australia is amazing!
Of course, I live there, but still...
It is a great place to raise children, especially, because it's so much safer than any other country, as much as Americans might like to disagree...
Australia is the best. Bold sentence I know, but I didn't hesitate to say it because it is my belief, as it is some yours for other countries. We have the best beaches, the best trained army in the world, and the best people. We have helped out other countries during on so many occasions. We jumped in the trenches with the Canadians and British just 16 years after we became a federation. We have some of the most interesting natives, who stretch back to over 80 000 years on this incredible land. It makes me proud to be fourth on the list, when we are SO much smaller than other countries below us. Australia would be 1st if you did the math to average the population to number of votes. 100% Aussie pride.
Australia is by far the best country in the world its geographically beautiful, wealthy very rich in gold minerals and ores. The schools aren't that great in the respect that drugs are very easily sold by students for drug dealers but the academic rate is high the beaches are stunning I spent a weekend at byron bay last year on the eats most point of Australia miid summer with a maori friend the water was blue as and rich with fish also the citys are easy to travel through compered to auckland also it is problem atic with the younger indigenous population being brought up in the midst off drugs but its by far the best country
Australia is the best country for numerous reasons and it is clearly a more stable country than most countries in the world. Here I. Australia, there is a sense of multiculturalism not seen in any other place in the world, with there being a landmark representing all cultures, showing the multicultural society that exists here. Also in Australia, there lies 6 of the top 10 most live able cities in the world. I could just go on for days how good Australia is!
It was hard to choose between Australia and the USA but, the people in Australia seem a lot nicer. I'm not one to believe stupid stereotypes but... I have met Americans and seen them on the internet etc, and they come across very obnoxious and self-absorbed. I know not all people are like this and I do still love the USA but Australia is gorgeous and I don't believe ALL of them are racist.. I'm half black
I think Australia has proven itself worthy of high ranking just from the intelligent and hearty comments here. Compare these comments with the incomprehensibly retarded comments by the deluded people voting for loser countries (pakistan, india et al. ) who often receive Australian aid. Unfortunately, the same losers are washing upon our shores to spoil our future. My only major regret about this country is our failure to lift our black brothers out of their cultural depression. But if you're gonna be unhappy, black and poor, might as well be in Oz.
What's not to like. Quality if life for all, universal health care, free schools, access to university for all who choose, not just wealthy, high quality if life and standard of living, multicultural, weathers great from sun to snow... And not insular with most Australians traveling and having some idea of the world outside its borders. And they have Australian rules football
I'm from india, I love it there but australia is just so awesome. After living in the us where is was racially discriminated I was afraid that once I moved to australia I would be bullied too. But man australia has evertying, great love and caring people, great scenery, great country ready to help others and respect all other cultures. AUSTRALIA FOR THE WIN! 1
Australia is by far the best country to live in. Look at americas health care it is very expensive! In a recent study of top 10 most livable countries in the world australia had 4 cities of their own, canada with 3 and a few other countries placed. None of the american cities came close to being in the top 10. I guess most americans are too selfish to admit that their country does have some faults.
UK 3rd, US 6th and russia 9th seriously? The rivalry between the US and Russia is pathetic and might end up in WW3 so they are 2 of the worst. Also I live in the UK and have no idea how we are 3rd and I'm definitely not proud to be English. I don't know many other countries where 8 year olds break innocent peoples windows and teenagers plan burglarys on houses with toddlers in. I actually knew someone who smashed a window at 8 and my mum knows of someone who is a mother who lives on her own with 3 kids, including a baby whose house got robbed by people who clearly knew a baby lived there. I have never been to Austrlia but I know that they deserve to be above the UK.
Australia has less deficit than the USA. We also engage in most conflicts that USA does. We have jobs and even share with foreign workers. There are 170k jobs in Western Australia open recently for people who don't mind working in mines and perhaps having to work hard. Why wouldn't you live here and feel safe in being able to work if you want.
Australia is the best country in the world because we have beaches, rain forest to deserts, we have landmarks like the sydney opera house and Ularu. I am proud to be an aussie because we are nice and easy to get to know people. I love this country and it screams out that it is simply the best. AUSSIE.
Well, I think we have it rather well... I in particular live in the very middle of Australia's highest ranking City Shire (Bayside, VIC) which is in Melbourne - the most livable city on the planet... Does that mean I live in the best place in the world?
Austraila is just perfect. I myself live in the United
States but I find that is I lived in Austrailia I'd be a hundred times happier (not meaning I'm Depressed or anything). The open atmoshphere you could say just sees dashing.
Australia rules! Best country ever!. I also like new zealand and USA, but Australia will always be the best. Australian Football League. I'm happy and proud to have lived in Australia. Almost everything is awesome there.
Australia is a very safe and peaceful country, it is also very beautiful and people have good lives here
By the way how did india get number one? I'm not saying its a bad country but it isn't the best country to live in with the poverty and slums there
I used to live in Australia for 3 months, then came back to my country, but if I could choose where to live... Obviously Australia! A lot of diversity, cultures, a lot of everything man! I'll go back one day to live there!
Best country ever!
Australia is awesome lived here my whole life and I couldn't be happier. I love it here and I don't want to move. It truely is awesome and veryone has to come and saty at our amazingly beautiful country!
I think Australia is the best because we are lucky we don't have as many natural disasters as the ones in other countries and so I think Australia is the best if want to live a good country come live Australia cause we're all Aussies
Australia has the most beautiful beaches in all of the world, amazing rainforests and simply gorgeous animals. It's far more free than America and with far less crime rates, it's far safer.
Exemplary place to visit and settle. A wonderful place to go and have fun. Australia is a very beautiful country with congestion level quite low. An environment friendly nation to live
