Best Countries in the World

The Top Ten

1 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 ...read more.

This country has serious issues. A too large and corrupt government, too powerful corporatism, fake politicians, horribly fragile economy, corrupt justice system, crappy education system, clowns in office for the past 25 years, etc. I could literally go on forever about how screwed we the people are. But despite all of that, I still put USA at the top because of where we came from. We had wonderful founding fathers who hate tyranny and love liberty, yet they are demonized today. These great men forged the greatest piece of writing ever created in this country called The Constitution of the United States of America. This is what makes the USA great. This is why we have had such glorious freedom for so long now. This Constitution has outdone every other constitution in existence and its principles can even help us in the mess we are in today. But our leaders are violating it every day without a care and without punishment. But I digress. This country is my pick for number one because it ...more

We did not have wonderful founding fathers! We killed thousands of Native Americans, stole their land and put their heads on sticks

OK, I have to say that the United States is defiantly not the BEST country in the world. True, we have the world's largest economy and military, but my country does have some serious issues that need to be summed up. Of course, to truly understand the United States is to understand the good and the bad parts.

The two major problems facing America today (well, three if you count climate change which I am leaving out of this because 1) it is more of an international problem than a national one and 2) I am only going to be listing the more immediate issues) are corruption and division in our government and our constant meddling overseas. First thing's first, corruption. If you are a senator or a representative in the US congress, you are more likely than not either an extreme religious conservative republican or an extreme socialist liberal democrat. There are some independents and moderates but they are becoming increasingly endangered within congress and the government as a ...more

Although America is my home, I must admit that we are sadly no longer the best. We have many good things about our country that no other country has, like or massive size, our beautiful landscapes and our diverse population. But alas, America is no longer the undisputed leader of the free world as we were during the Cold War. The USA is falling behind China and India at almost everything. China has overrun our economic status as the world's largest, and India will soon surpass both nations. The Chinese also has the largest military, and Russia has far outgunned us with they're nuclear arsenal since the end of the Cold War. With the war on terror, America is now permanently sucked into the affairs of the Middle East. This has forced to our (often somewhat incompetent) leaders to make decisions to which there is no good way out. Do we support Assad's regime against ISIS because ISIS is beheading our journalists and killing thousands of people, or do we support the 'moderate rebels' ...more

Well said! (apart from the typos but I will ignore those)

Reading that gives me a small amount of hope for the future of America. If more people were like you then yes America would be the best. Unfortunately things don't look hopeful.

It seems to be a theme in 'developed' countries that they under-fund education, perhaps in an attempt to make an army of mindless voters.. what a great way to give the illusion of freedom. Propaganda is powerful. America, England, Australia.. they are all on the edge of a slippery slope.

In America, expensive healthcare means you need to work hard which in turn makes you need more healthcare further down the line. It's all part of modern day slavery. Just because you can't see the chains doesn't mean that they aren't there.

My country has some serious problems. While the USA is a very democratic and militarily powerful country, there are many major issues going on that we Americans seem to ignore or look away from.

First and foremost, everybody hates us. We have been around for 200 years and in that time we have invaded attacked or occupied almost 50 other countries. The Middle East blames all of it's problems on us because we support Israel and have invaded Iraq and Afghanistan just for the oil. They burn president Obama in effigy and some groups like ISIS are calling for another Iraq war. Americans are also taken hostage, sold as slaves and beheaded on television. Africa is a similar situation. Central Americans and South Americans think of us as a huge bully, because back in the 1900s and early 20th century we were constantly invading them and butting into they're affairs. We invaded like ten Latin Americans countries during the Wilson administration alone. We ruined our relationships with ...more

2 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

I have to say the UK for the most reasons:
1) it is more then ONE nation/nationality as its fall name is The United Kingdom of Great Britain and North Ireland, britain=Scotland, wale and England with a bit of Ireland by choice and you can pick what nationality you want English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, British, European or UK even a British (name other original country you came form or have roots to E.G. A British Japanese or a 5th generation British Chinese)
2) the overseas Territory E. G Falklands and Gibraltar, they have connections with britain as they are it the political UK self-ruling governments of UK and shears the same queen.
3)its connections to other nations, if you have not noticed the top 5 on this list has similarity with each other included THEY WERE ALL PART OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE E.G. uK was seen as their mother/father country, their country's was founded by citizens of the UK and some even now comment it was/is still the mother land of India, Canada, ...more

First industrialized nation, created the modern world. The world speaks English. Common law, Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights are its wonderful legacy. The only major country in the top ten science Nobel Laureates per capita. With the Dutch, created the western free trade model. The most innovative people on the planet. Time itself is measured from the United Kingdom. Still a military superpower, the country remains uninvaded since 1066, longer than any other nation. Its armed forces are the best-trained in the world. A huge cultural and historical wealth makes it one of the top 5 most-visited countries. London is one of the only two Alpha++ global cities. As a financial centre the UK remains ranked in either first or second place, its geographical location enabling in to trade effectively with the world as a whole. It is one of only two countries to have top-ten placed universities: it is a centre of learning. It has been historically a deeply-Christian country, spreading the ...more

They Kind of just wanna rule the world because Racism but that was before otherwise good country

Great culture, sense of humour, slightly barmy but great!

Now America is a great country you know!? But one thing is for sure. They stole invention ideas like the rocket. That idea is actually from the Germans (sorry I am not a big fan of defending the horrid Nazis either here) but the German that invented the rocket LAUNCHER is also one of the main guys that produced the rocket in the first place! But now I'd like to say this UK has got racist problems as well but only because the Asians have immigrated here just to offend us but Asia is awesome too. GO BOLLYWOOD! Anyways WE invented the usage of coal WE invented the telephone WE invented the camera WE created the cruise ship (ok so the first one didn't go so well) WE created real football or that weird word soccer you Americans call it and your football barely uses feet anyways! What kind of STOLEN name are you thinking of!? WE took a great load of history including the Romans (YAY ITALY! Even though you invaded us. ) The Saxons which I am pretty sure is us and the Vikings (Scandinavia if ...more

3 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 kmĀ²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

This should be #1 because it's peaceful, never has to worry about war, not racist, and the Canadians there are awesome!

Canada is the best country ever I am a Canadian and I feel proud too be in a country like this

Canada may not have the largest population, nor the biggest army, and may not have the biggest economy. But what this Great North strong and free has is good people, good economy, amazing natural areas, and diverse culture. In Canada any man, woman, or child who immigrates may get dual citizenship allowing them to further express themselves in the our Great cultural mosaic. Better to be a vibrant individual of Canada, than be another bit of grey slop in the American melting pot. The Canadians conquered Vimy Ridge when no other could, we fought for the allies in WWII. Also, if American is "so good" then why do they always use Canadian cities to represent American cities in their "good" films? Also the Canadian Political system is superior to the American for the reason that if the Prime Minister says there is something that should be done, it is then done! None of the pointless banter between a congress and a president. Should be leaving the U.S. in the dust, along with it's overt ...more

I'll vote for Canada because there is no racism ( immigrants are coming from everywhere ) and we are peaceful people. Not like you Americans that think they are the best

"There is no racism", "NOT LIKE YOU Americans THAT THINK THEY ARE THE BEST"... seems like you just made a judgement about an entire group of people based on the fact that they are American. Racism is defined as "The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or abilities"... so because we are American, we think we are the best? That's a racist comment about being racist... the things you see online now-a-days.

Canada. Proud to live here. One of the most natural countries. I live in Vancouver, and for all of the people who say it's boring, it's not. Rain is a downside but that also means that we can plant tropical plants in a colder country! Plus, we are used to that. (Everybody realizes that the people not wearing jackets are tourists. ) yes the housing, but places like Toronto have cheaper housing, so that evens it out. We are not racist, though I was very sad to see Our people being racist to Chinese, but now, it's changed. Plus, where else in the world can you ski in Canada where you can't anywhere else? I can't tell you much about other places, but I know at Vancouver, we can ski in a averagely warm weather. Bring a jacket in case! If you don't want something simple like Seymour and grouse or cypress, go to whistler, an amazing resort unquestionably the best resort in the world. Sun peaks resort at okanagon is a very good place as well. Meet loons, ducks, Eagles, Hawks, songbirds, ...more

4 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. ...read more.

the mix of ancient japanese culture and hi-tec modern devices is just marvelous!

Japan is the best!
Japan is a very advanced country, great technology and perfect facilities. Japan is beautiful as a picture. The people here are very friendly, nice, trustful and helpful. I want to live there!

and not to mention the BOYS there. jez kiddin.

They have absolutely great technology. They have many of the world's leading companies like Sony, Panasonic, Nintendo etc., and there are some beautiful mountains and natural sites. Mount Fuji. And also the beautiful and mysterious temples, castles etc. The Tokyo skyline now is amazing, with its new Tokyo Sky Tree making it even better.
The people of Japan are the kindest, and everyone is very punctual - this is reflected in how Japanese trains are hardly ever late. The cities are really clean too. They have got great T.V. dramas and variety shows. The boybands like Smap, Tokio and Arashi are amazing too.

Actually Japan may have all of that but is not worth it because of all the earthquakes that cause tsunami's so your putting your own life at risks

5 Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

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, ...more

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 ...more

Most people are just voting for the country they live in, but I actually live in the US, not Australia, but I'm not voting for the US because, you have to admit, it has some bad issues (in my opinion). I think Australia is a good country with a good economy and health. Sure, it might not be no.1 in every factor, but it is probably in at least the top 20 in everything. (except for top ten worst countries haha). Melbourne has actually been awarded the most livable city in the world, and that doesn't surprise me. I have only been to Australia once, but I have to admit, it was a pretty damn good country. It has good tourist attractions and it is pretty clean! (compared to other countries) I think it is pretty cool that Australia is no.5 considering the fact that barely anyone lives there compared to the rest of the world (going by the fact that everyone is most likely voting for their country) A lot of people say the US and the UK is better than AUS because they have more people but I ...more

6 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

Why France is one of the most beautiful country:

Lots of different landscapes, architectures, more than 36 000 villages and cities, lots of different cultures etc...

Among the most beautiful beaches in the world, because of many Islands and territories like:

- Part of Amazonia (French Guyanne),

- French Polynesia with about 120 among the most beautiful Islands (Pacific Ocean), - French Caribbean with various known islands (Atlantic Ocean),

- Reunion, Mayotte are splendid islands (Indian Ocean) etc..

Etc..

And France (metropole) surrounded by North Sea, Atlantic Sea and Mediterranean.

That makes France one of the rare countries flanked by 4 oceans (Antarctic included).

Due to its numerous Overseas departments and territories scattered on all oceans of the planet, France possesses the second-largest exclusive economic zone in the world,

Covering 11 035 000 km2 just behind USA.

It belongs also in France the 2nd ...more

The food is amazing, and even though there is an attitude of being somewhat lazy, this country is friendly and welcoming, and deserves to be in the top 5. Also, French people have a sense of fashion. The accent, food and attitude of the people, along with the various monuments to visit are all factors which contribute to the fact that France is great, and is a country one must visit in his lifetime. Also, how is India first?

Many thanks to this marvelous country named France.

Of course France is famously known for its gastronomy, but that is just the visible part of the iceberg. With more than 84 millions of tourists in 2015 is the most visited country in the world with USA and Spain. And it is also ranked number 6 in terms of GDP. Is in the top 5 or healthcare and the top 1 in Europe for its number of diverse cultures and origins. Counting everything will take ages, but right now we can confirm it as in the top 5. Just see how many people here try to destroy the image of France, you never try to destroy a bad country only a good one like the famous ones here too.

7 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

I've lived here, I've lived in Italy and I've lived in S Korea. I like them all better than the good old USA. I was born in the US and I don't think I will ever go back. They brag about freedom in the US but I have somthing here in Germany that you can never have in the US. The freedom to walk around at anytime, anywhere and not have to worry about getting robbed or shot. Plus the countryside is just down right gorgeous!

Strongest European country after loosing 2 world wars, respect!

I'm sorry about anyone who said you were wrong. If you google it, Germany is the most powerful European country

Germany is the best country ever
We can come back from anything including multiple giant wars and large debts

How about your ancestors murder of millions of people. Can you come back from that? Cause believe me... We didn't forget.. The entire world remembers. No coming back from that one lol.

Lovely countryside and beautiful mountains. Nice cities going from big international and historical Berlin to small beautiful and cultural Heidelberg, one of the few cultural cities that weren't destroyed in the war. People are good just as good as any other person in another country. Some are funny and nice some are rude and some are just reserved but helpful. A very economically strong country, which doesn't need to rely on other countries. Can help themselves and solve problems mostly on their own. don't have to depend on anyone. Is the centre of Europe. Has many neighbours and is very well connected to these other countries. You can get very far very fast ( Autobahn or other public transport). Transportation system is very good. Trains are 'mostly' on time. Many Universities. Education is free for everyone, even those who come from other countries. Have many good movies, although many Germans don't think so but I do. Comedy does exist but is manly for Germans because its not ...more

8 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. ...read more.

I love my country, thats why it has my vote. It hasnt been in war since 1809, but I think that CAN in some circumstances be a bad thing. Strong standing army, but I think theres too many immigrants.

Sweden is a life time experience even though I don't live there, I have been there on holiday once and it was amazing also the weed down their is great

Sweden is a great country to live in the crime rate is very low and it's good climate and good food

I have to disagree with this. The Sweden leader is planning on BOMBING CANADA! JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE CLOSE TO AMERICA!

9 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. ...read more.

New Zealand has to be the Best. They've done so many wonderful things E. G created the first commercial bungy jump, yikebikes, zorbing (I think) and lots of others. They're not racist, yet want to keep their historical virtue of the maori and European settlers, and not going all china and japan like every other country in the world. They don't want to be like any other country in the world, that's why they're so unique and special. So If you want a happy, livable' free (as in freedom) safe, respectable life then New Zealand has to be the best! Coming from the UK- a a lot of people want to go to Australia and USA (but that's only because they get told false accusations from movies and songs) but they also say stuff like their economy is over 4 times bigger than New Zealand, well New Zealand is 10 times smaller then these countries so don't have huge oil reserves which will eventually run out because they want to keep there natural beauty, minimize population that's destroying our ...more

NZ is definitely the best country in the world.

Friendly people, awesome scenery, easy access to the outdoors, clean water, the list goes on.

The comment for Australia saying that it has 93% of what the world needs to survive is untrue (you can't eat coal). NZ has one of the worlds largest percentage of arable land.

We are the world champions at Rugby

Great music, food, wine & beer comes from NZ.

We are not arrogant like our noisy neighbor to the west.

Much better than Australia, I mean I actually moved from NZ to Switzerland to learn French and everyone says NZ is the best country in the world they say nothing about India, paskistan, Mexico, Germany, Philippines and Ireland

Which would you choose?

A totalitarian stalinist military dictatorship that has a Governor General who cares about hsi people while also being flashy and over the top (Australia)?

Or a democratic country that has little by little, dispite having down to earth politicians who don't wear fancy uniforms (unlike all Australian Governor Generals who wear some of the flashiest stuff you have ever seen (General Hurley being no exception)), still let the country fall and go to waste?

10 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities. ...read more.

Switzerland is greater than anything else you can imagine! Although I love 43 countries, Switzerland is the most favorite of all! Check out the most famous customs: you'll always see an alphorn band throughout the day. The swiss cuisine is always clean and tasty. Geneva is a great shopping place. You can shop for watches, clothes, chocolate etc... You must live there! Just visit it in the summer and see the great wonders and destinations. You'll feel happily deeply inside!

Woah woah! I love Switzerland. But watch that last sentence. Keep it in context.

most libertarian country in the world! limited government, great people, beautiful stunning scenery, chocolate, watches and skiing! clean air and great sights.

Switzerland is better than any country in the world. It's clean, beautiful, and has nice people. It may be small but it should be number one. India is very dirty and should not be number one. You can really enjoy nature in Switzerland. One more thing is if you love shopping, most large Swiss cities have a section in the city dedicated to shops so you can enjoy your favorite stores right in the heart of the cities!

In terms of who I this is best at being a country, I have to say Switzerland. This is funny because it isn't in my top ten countries I'd like to visit.

The Contenders

11 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

Simply beautiful... Italy may have it's bad side, but it's the most beautiful place to live. Especially with places like Florence, Venice, Rome, Naples, and Sicily... Food is awesome, the climate is awesome, the wine is delicious and the people are great!

The music is terrific too, one of the best. Not a fan of xenophobic attitudes below, though.

Fantastic art and design, a beautiful language. Amazing women, and the people are incredibly at home and sociable. It's easy to just be yourself, and as this goes for everyone, people can come across as rude or happy to an unsuspecting yet well traveled visitor, but it beats the false attitudes of the silly rigid social structures in other countries. It feels great to just be, and Italians do this all whilst holding a smooth amount of class.
The food is the best, and it is incredibly diverse. They have serious problems with economy, and my inability to get a job there has prevented me to move there. I can't wait to get a better future.

These are all opinions, and there is no such thing as the best country.

Because we invent our society and are the best in the art of living.

Let's get out of Europe!

12 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

A wonderful country, a lot of oil, sabotaged a lot of the germans ships, vehicles and equipment during WWII, prevented the germans from getting hydrogen bombs, one of the worlds richest countries in the world, and supporting other countries with aid, but we got a bad prime minister.

I had been there for about a year. I am so fascinated to its beauty. A truly European country. It is so peaceful country having gentle, hardworking and kind-hearted people. Moreover, the best thing of Norway is - it's a well organized and developed country. The people are simply awesome, they do not hinder others but respect co-existence. The dark woods, small hills, lakes and the snow... What does it not have? --- Everything.

Norway IS the best nation in the world, no doubt. It is the best place in the world to live, the second happiest country on the planet, there are basically no class differences and the nature is so beautiful and well preserved there is no competitor. It has more lakes than Finland, aka the land of the lakes. And it is one of the most democratic countries on our planet. The human rights aren't represented better anywhere than in Norway. It is a country that also sits on the top of multiple sports rankings, despite a population of only 5 million. No doubt, there is not a country that is better than Norway on our planet.

Norway is without a doubt the best country in the world. It beats Sweden in every way such as wealth, safety, tourism, etc.

13 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

He told me that it's better than America because in Russia you don't have people fighting against your freedom, your independence, your rights and he told me about a man in Russia whose house was broken into the man told his family to hide in the closet of the master bedroom my friend told me that the man was driving home when he gets to the driveway he sees the front door window is broken when he's running to the master bedroom he hears someone trying to break the closet door down he gets to the master bedroom and he sees a man trying to break the closet door down the man my friend told me about pulled his handgun and shot the man that had a axe the man that shot the man who had a axe didn't go to prison because he was protecting his family my friend told me that in Russia you don't go to prison for protecting ...more

Russia is the best country in the world, and Russians are very friendly! I hear about this country a lot. Everyone have a vote for Russia! I come from UK but I love Russia! Russian language is beautiful and easy to lean!

Russia is the most misunderstood country in this world, people love to ruin Russia with memes and racism, yet they don't go to the actual country themselves. Ovechkin was born here, this place is the biggest country, their language is great, and here's the truth, I was actually born here!

Russia is the greatest nation and we had the richest culture later stolen by miserable smaller nations. Our people is the best in every area! Heroic soldiers and talented artists, hard workers and idealist youth - this is the real Russia!

I love my country very much because there are different languages, peoples unity so like my country very much

Yes, India is the most pluralistic country in the world whether it is religious or linguistic. India has public holidays for all religious festivals. NO OTHER COUNTRY has holidays for minority religions, period. And the government doesn't control lives of its citizens like many "developed" countries do.

We have many non-India comments here. Let others shout... Scream... Scold... No matter what! India's on the top!

INDIA is the best COUNTRY in the world because it is very beautiful, it is the most powerful country, INDIA have largest armed force, it is the big economical power. Jaiho

I wonder what job I would get if I relocate in India. You sure that I will get protected like in the United States?

Hello Indians, I'm from Bangladesh. I think this is a true review. India is one of the richest countries of the world and it has a lot of attractive cultural traditions. It is also one of the largest countries of the world. Historical places are amazing and travel destinations are dashing. A huge number of Hindus, Muslims and other religious people have been living together peacefully there for centuries. Some religious collisions were seen in the past time but neither Hindus nor Muslims of India should be blamed. It is the dirty 'two nation theory' which was the cause of all mishaps. What did Pakistan do with Bangladeshi people (East-Pakistan at that time) after 1947? They tortured both Hindus and Muslims of Bangladesh. Bangladeshi people will always thank India and Indian people for those great help and supports during the liberation war. There are some people in Bangladesh who are still against the liberation of Bangladesh. These people are the main problem of Bangladesh. We had ...more

India is beautiful but is one of the dirtiest in the world. People do not have toilets and they poop outside, people do not have sanitary indoor bathrooms in the countryside. Their waste management is very inefficient. and are sanitation challenged. If India pass strict laws on environmental and personal cleanliness like Singapore or Tokyo, then I might vote India as the best.

15 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

What! Got great food, great culture, great place. Awesome ECONOMY! THE STUFF FROM OTHER COUNTRIES ARE MADE IN China, DUMMIES! This is gonna be a SUPER DUPER powerful country one day, heck, it already is! And on that day, everyone who didn't vote for China will be sorry!

All very good points but China is having a bit of a struggle with the environment. You can't deny that.

Chinese people are hard working, adventurous, organised, smart, family oriented, enterprising, diverse and accepting of other cultures. When they migrate to other countries, they work hard and are law abiding. They try their best to integrate and assimilate. They can be like the ants and bees of the human world. Their people toiling away, unrelenting and focused.

However, they face many discriminations especially in Western societies where the westerners feel very threatened by their diligence. Just see how many hundreds of derogatory terms they give to Chinese to try to put them down. China was once too proud of being a great civilisation, they slept for 300 years while the other countries progressed and conquered the lands around them. Only those who learn the lesson of humility, can be great leaders. The harsh reality is the winners of this world aren't the meek and hardworking people, it is usually the aggressive, greedy and violent nations who go around the world ...more

China really is a great country, but it has a high low class rate, but other than that it should be in the top 10.

I have lived here for 6 years after moving from the United States. This country is awe-inspiring. Where in the world can you walk down a street at two in the morning and the odds of anything happening to you are minimal. Safest place I've ever been.

We do our best... But we care about our neighbours... I love my country.

Irish inhabitants in general are extremely hospitable and have a delightful sense of humor. The green (hence Emerald Isle) landscape and geography of Ireland is utterly breathtaking and beautiful. I was instantaneously captivated by the incessant friendliness and high spirited nature of the locals. The accents are incredibly awesome and are pleasant to the ear as well.

I respect the Ireland people for hiding their leperchauns very skillfully and that there are not any snakes there.

17 Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

ICELAND IS AWESOME 100 % clean water from tap beautiful landscape and HOT women small and it makes it simple it should be in the top ten

I wont vote for my own country, Norway. Iceland is my favourite country, so my vote goes to you.

Calm and peaceful. Great scenery with beutiful nature with glaciers, ocean, volcanoes. Nice people with strong men and cute and charming girls. Good government and good standards of living.

Iceland - Good food, good people, good safety. Bad for murderers since you will be too sad to kill anyone once you meet the people.

18 Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

Denmark really is one of the best countries in the world. Denmark is one of the freest and happiest countries. Number two in the most democratic countries. Almost no corruption. Universal healthcare and education. In fact, when you are over 18 you receive money from the state, for going to school and getting an education. Denmark, along with Norway and Sweden are the countries that spend the most money in terms of GDP on helping poor countries. Denmark is very peaceful. There is almost no crime. And it is the best at creating clean energy and helping the environment.

I come from Denmark but Denmark hasn't been in war in a long time and they have wonderful stories and they love going on a bike ride and Denmark has an beautiful capital city, they also made Lego and Denmark has a good government, Denmark is not to hot and not to cold every single Dane has good education, Denmark also help people come to Denmark if their country is in war, Denmark is very clean no bad air.

Couldn't agree more with him.
- All of this is true. All people, who is under an education is Denmark is also State education granted, so if you're from the States and you're under an education you can search for education grant, and will most likely get it.

I could go on for hours, Denmark is an amazing country!

Denmark is one of the only Places you can go to school, to the doctor and hospital for free. If you can't Work due to Health, old age or any other reason you will get Money from the state to live and exist as human.
In Denmark you are taken care of.

19 Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

Spain is the most diverse and exciting country in the world
A wealth of history, great food, exciting festivals, ancient traditions, diversity of landscapes and climates, ancient architecture.

Simply the best country you can imagine. Its got everything from warm to cold places, beaches and mountains, rich culture and great food, amazing castles and cathedrals, very nice people, etc.
I love this country it is very culturaly rich because its had greek, roman, Muslim, Jewish, celtic, visigothic influence and much more. This country also has so much history that I can't fit it all in this post so you are going to have to look it up. Each part of this great country is so different yet equally beautiful. Spain is also one of the leading countries in sports. It is the second country with the most turism. This place is like no other and should at least be in the top five.

Spain is the best country in the world! They have just about everything that you need to be happy. The sights are breath-taking, the beaches are beautiful, the cuisine is WOW no words for it and the people are warm and friendly. Overall it's perfect, should have been in the top five!

Spain is unique. It has everything you look for. In fact, when you visit Spain, it's like visiting more than one country at the same time. Spain has history. Spain has nature. Spain has nightlife. Spain has gastronomy. Spain has culture. Spain is different.

20 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

I think Brazil is the best country to visit for tourism. It's huge, wonderful and amazing people! VOTED!

Very Nice weather we have soccer many Beatiful beaches and we are very friendly 45 is not a position for my incredible nice country Brazil

We have everything a nation needs, vast nature, richness, simplicity, perseverance, dynamism, and the best the most beautiful people in the world, either inside and out, come to Brazil.

Brazil is a country with friendly people, wonderful landscapes and a several culture with people from a lot of other countries. It is a fantastic place that you should to know.

21 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. ...read more.

England is diverse, with many museums and cultural interests and a stunning coastline and lush green countryside, for the latter you need rain and we do get some of that! We also have a tremendous sense of humour and are not afraid to laugh at ourselves. How boring to wake up knowing the sun is going to shine every day--I think!

England are only this low down because all of it's votes are placed on the United Kingdom which is mostly England.

Should be number 1, we made it all possible for everyone.
Everyone now speaks our language

Britain is the best country in the world. England is the best country in Great Britain. No contest.

22 Netherlands

Beautiful cities, great infrastructure, fun/healthy/smart people, logical laws (legalization of drugs, when will the rest of the world ever learn? ), high incomes, overachieving at nearly every sport, there are no poor people as everyone is guaranteed a house and minimal income. No corruption whatsoever. Known for Its great festivals and parties. EVERYONE speaks English, and dutch of course. I can go on for another two pages but I think you got the point here.. The most of these reasons are common throughout the western world and the regions that are proven to be the best places in the world are northern Europe, Canada, Switzerland, Australia/New Zealand. Anyone speaking in favor of an African or Asian country is just a troll, plain ignorant or stupid, or all three. Do some serious research come on Its not that hard.

Seriously? There are many Asian countries with top quality of life. Have you ever seen Singapore, Taiwan, Japan or South Korea? Much better life quality (at least than Canada)

Socially this is the best (liberal) country there is in the world!
Amsterdam and Grooningen are the places to be!
People are freethinkers and are pro-quality of life.
If you think about the inhabitants (16 million) related to the quality of life :: education, sports, wealth and infrastructure in combination with the social freedom this is the top country in the world. They possessed the world and seas in the 17th century (golden age) and they are still today!

There are friendly people, good colleges, many opportunities for all people. It has a beautiful land scape and there isn't much poverty. Also unlike countries such as America there is not as much hatred between political parties.

And on the side of fun stuff, there are many great musicians, there is a lot of watersports and other sports and it is perfect for biking.

And it has super hot girls, much better than in America...

I live in the U.S.A, but someday I want to move to the Netherlands

23 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Having been born to this country considers me to be shame.
The surroundings of the fabricated history, culture, and a town are overflowing with copies.
For a long time, our ancestors who were Chinese tributaries are themselveses, and had not produced a new thing.
And even now, it continues.

Shut up, what do you mean with fabricated history, you are just jealous of our success.. we used to be below you and we are gonna be above you soon

1) Fastest Internet Speed in the World as well as the Fastest Mobile Data Speed ever.
2) Better infrastructure and ahead of the future
3) Clean and most people maintain high levels of personal hygiene
4) Transportation System is ridiculously better (Coming from a resident living in San Francisco, it's slow, dirty and drug addicts are likely to board trains and cause concern), At least if you're commuting in Seoul, those problems are scarce and hardly present at all.
5) Technologically Advanced, Samsung and LG originated here. In fact, Samsung is leading in the phone market whereas Apple is falling behind but Huawei is catching up.
6) Low-Crime Rate, San Francisco is home to the highest homeless population in the world, most of these people are pissing on the streets and also inciting harm on the residents.
7) It's inexpensive to live there, usually debatable but in all honesty, when spending in cities like SFO or LA, you are likely to be spending $100 a week unlike ...more

5 reasons why South Korea is a great country:
1) It is a beautiful place.
2) Rich in history and culture.
3) They created there own language to help unite the country (when North Korea and South Korea were together) it is the best language in the world.
4) Delicious food!
5) Seoul is an amazing place and is far more technologically advanced than most if not all American cities.
South Korea is an amazing place and is one of the greatest countries in the world.

The best country ever. Period. I wonder why Japan is even in the top 100.

24 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.

Schools in Finland are so great that people from other countries come here to study.

best country on earth amazing lakes and the reindeer are so cute. The town of Salla is Amazing. Dog sleds are fun! most amazing place in the world.

Finland is good country. This is freedom country and there is good food.

The lesser known nordic country, usually in the shadows of the Sweden, despite Finland not being any worse. Most people are humble enough to admit that liking one country only because you live in it is selfish (few exceptions, as always), and will criticise things happening both in and out of the country. Most likely won't be the "best" or second "best" country in the world and will probably be unknown and low on this list because of the low population.
