41 San Marino San Marino San Marino, officially the Republic of San Marino, also known as the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, is an enclaved microstate surrounded by Italy, situated on the Italian Peninsula on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains.

It really should have been higher on this list. The quality of life is good and its citizens have a long life expectancy. Not much taxes, either.

Been there Beautiful place Have been there Would love to live there

I've seen the place; very nice place. Wish it would have a larger area.

42 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

It has it's problems, but if can you look pass that you'll have great time. Great restaurants, cool events and good people. If you, as a foreigner, for example, have a lot of money you can protect your self from the bad, and enjoy the good stuff. I've been living in Belgrade for 3 months and It's super.

Friendly people, cheap if you are lucky enough to have a job, great food, outdoor lifestyle, 4 seasons, ski-ing in the winter and boiling hot summers, great for sports, very little day to day crime

Serbia is an amazing country I don't understand when people say it's one of the worst countries Serbia has so much freedom unlike other countries

Great restaurants, cool events and good people, great food, outdoor lifestyle

43 Scotland Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

I'm from Canada, Scotland is Part of my heritage, love Scotland, great music great people, one of the friendliest and kindest places on earth, a lot of Scots in Canada, especially in the Atlantic Islands of Canada, love Simple Minds, Rod Stewart, Sheena Easton, Texas, Hipsway... Etc etc etc

Nothing is more beautiful than the Scottish Highlands, with their ancient feel and thin air. Wonderful.

People sometimes judge us by our accents or others sometimes don't like the scots, but that's ok but I'm here to let u know that if u take a holiday into Scotland I guarantee you will be treated with good respect. People are also stereotypical about us. You do see a man playing the bagpipes in a kilt now and then in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Aberdeen, so that's awesome. Our country has one of the greatest sites to see, we also have to best water in the world located in Paisley, we also have the best steak in Europe know as the Aberdeen Angus.
Thanks for taking time to read my comment about Scotland! Go and check out Ireland or Wales!

Scotland is the best country ever and should be if not in the top 10 just missing out of it I mean how is Jamacia and Uganda Brazil and South Africa really a better place to live than Scotland think of our security compared to those countries and we have a more unique heritage and look at safety Scotland is way better and why is England placed higher than the United Kingdom COME ON PEOPLE

45 Estonia Estonia

Estonia is a very nice country, It also has beautiful weather and very friendly people, and it has super clean air! I love it!

This is probably the most underestimated country. Estonia should be treated differently as a country. One of the places in Europe.

The longest ice roads in the world connecting the mainland and the islands in the West coast of Estonia.

Very safe, people are OK (just too silent), more and more nice companies and a not so many foreigners. Estonia still needs to be discovered.

46 Belgium Belgium

Excelent Food, Historic cities, Fine Culture, smart but modest people + Headquarters of NATO & European Istitutions

In my experience -The best Health Care system in the world and quality of life

The best beer and food of the world. High developed country.

Good food, a lot of things to do.
A lot of different kinds of cities.
There are peacefull cities and busy cities.
And there is a lot of nature in that little country.

50 Lebanon Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun . It is known as the Phoenix of the world since it has sunken under the ocean and has been destroyed by wars 7 times . In advance, more.

Trust me if there were no problems in lebanon it would be the best country to live in

Beautiful in the streets of Lebanon and food and view... AMAZING

Best country ever. Good connection, Awesome views, Delicious food very nice places. Only one problem, little bit of garbage on streets. But Lebanon is also outstanding with it's beaches

If there was a country I had to choose,I'd choose lebanon,it's speciality is foods,cedar trees,awesome view,and really high mountains,climb em dudes!

51 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle east) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic The capital city is Riyadh.

I was shocked! Saudi Arabia! It's a hot place even in winters with extremist people who kill people from other religions and cultures. They do not treat women like a human and they behave their women like a slave. This country spend enormous money on military equipment and if they could they kill all non-muslem people!

People actually put this country in front of Israel?! That's absurd. The laws in this country are crazy and women aren't even treated like human beings. Intense religious discrimination. This country sucks.

I've lived there for 11 years, one of the most racist countries. They enslave foreigners and manipulate them by a complicated residency and work law. Not to mention how they descriminate against women, a man can marry four women while a woman can't even drive.

Why the heck is Saudi Arabia on this list? Worst place to live

Not as bad as North Korea. UAE is the best place and Muslims and Non-Muslims can fit. - njalabi63989

52 Sudan Sudan

Sudan is awesome. I loved all the starving people. So skinny and vibrant. They were a little pushy when I offered to share a bag lunch with some locals. Transportation was a bit sketchy as well. I had to ride on top of a Toyota picup truck and hold on to the 50 cal. to keep it from swinging around too much. Oh, I really loved a local staple that I had never tried before. Deep fried sand.

They have some of the best landmarks

53 Uruguay Uruguay Uruguay, officially the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, is a country in the southeastern region of South America.

Free marijuana for everyone!

Very good president, no corruption. Weather is good,

I love my country - lincolnloudness

55 Nigeria Nigeria

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. ...more

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.

Africa is a disturbed continent and her people were highly suppressed by formal rulers as we know.
But what makes a country 'strong' isn't how developed nor how famous it may be but simply how it's able to deal and handle all of its stress.
Believe me or not Nigeria is the best example of an African country, you can count on them for almost any possible thing you would need in a democratic country like she is.
And within the shortest possible time I believe she would wax Stronger due to her present potentials.
