2 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

Japan is an extremely intelligent country that is highly developed and tech savy. They have fantastic infrastructure, food, video games, and culture. They have a strong economy (compared to all except China and U.S), nice people, extremely safe, longest living people, and low infant mortality rate. They are also a country of both traditional and modern cultures. No other country has been able to advance at the rate they have while still holding on to their traditional beliefs more than japan. Plus the girls are hot, innocent, and sexy! - gmankrist

Japan sounds like a well-developed country and also sounds very crime-free! Plus they have some awesome music going on!

3 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, more.

A pretty active country, considering all those winter sports they have plus the other ones. And speaking of winter, it's really beautiful in Canada during that time of year as the grass is covered by a white blanket and water is frozen like ice cold gems. The mountains in the North are very beautiful as well. Not to mention the wonderful and kind people (well, at least most of them). Great country! :D

Canada is a great country with free everything.

I visit here a lot. It's beautiful, the people are wonderful, they care about nature. Vancouver is one of my favorite cities of all time.

I really want to at least visit Canada! It is home to Rush! - PinkFloyd87

India is a very welcoming country. You won't miss your country once you step in here.

Best as democratic secular 4 biggest military

Democracy is the best way of the country

8 Austria Austria Austria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often more.
9 England England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. more.

England rules! Haha, I've always wanted to live in london. Plus I love the british accents. Beautiful country land, beautiful homes, so much history, good food, nice people, ugh I could go on. But definitely england. - dragonfly99

I've always wanted to live in London. Perfect temperature, generous people and great music. Instead, I live in stupid America, where it is either extremely hot or extremely cold, the ones who harm others get off scot free while the innocent get blamed and everyone is either obese, buff or does nothing but brag about this "amazing country" they live in.

England deserves the top spot. Inventors of world-changing inventions - the list is too long to go into. It is a tiny country but is poweful and always in the world media. It's beautiful, historical, modest, funny, intelligent. Why wouldn't people not want to make a home, family and a life there. I'm from poland and dream of going to England.

I would like to live in England the most. Winding country lanes, cottages, stately homes, London, the history, the royal family and the friendliest people.

10 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

I honestly can't vote for just one. Canada, Germany, Scotland, Australia, Japan and a number of others.
I voted America because some it's a lot like England, where I live, it's welcoming, multicultural, and has many things to see and do! I would go to the place which is most dissimilar from the Deep South, though. If anyone knows which part of America that is, leave it below.
But I'm not definitely saying America. The countries that I mentioned above are still places that I would go to. One of few things stopping me from going to somewhere like Germany or Japan is that I don't know the languages, and it would take years for me to perfect it. - PositronWildhawk

Good place especially The Northeast whoever wanted to live somewhere other than the Deep South

If the good people of the US of A would accept a reserved but ever-so-slightly crazy Englishwoman, I could certainly make it my home for a very long time. - Britgirl

Please end my suffer
I need to go to the USA
I can't stand Brazil anymore
Help God help.

Also no language barrier in the Philippines. There, people speak Filipino based in Tagalog, English, spanish, Russians, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans and many others. But one reason I want to live in the Philippines is because this is the only country in the world where there are 95 million Filipinos.

Philippines, because Philippines have a wonderful culture, Filipinos can speak very well English, with a beautiful accent. They will treat you well.

Not as rich as other countries but the people, culture and natural resources is indeed very great!
