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

Canada is a very happy country! It should be #1. Canada is happier then Denmark because Canadians never say anything bad about their country and they have good humor. Many Canadian kids learn more at school than any other countries. Canadian kids are happy at school and they love to learn. Almost every school in Canada has no bullying. The earth is lucky to have a country like Canada. We are lucky to have wonderful children in Canada who love to learn

God keep our land glorious and free. O, Canada, we stand on guard for thee. - PetSounds

4 Norway 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.

Any of those Scandinavian countries are usually happier. They have a government of the people by the people. It just happens to be Norway usually wins out. They just seem like very chill people and when you are chill you are happy.

5 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 think unlike other countries the USA is super-partisan, so half the country is happy and half the country is unhappy. There used to be reasonable leaders from both sides of the political aisle. I believe Obama has tried to work with Republicans but they are having none of it. It's well known that right after Obama was elected, Republicans held a meeting at which they decided to vote against everything Obama proposed. And we have a very lazy media in this country. Our T.V. news people used to be journalists, nowadays they are more like Hollywood celebrities. They spend their newscasts telling you more about the strange and unusual than anything of real usefulness, that's why Trump is getting so much more coverage than the other presidential candidates. Since the American people are told very little, they know very little. Polls are taken which show Americans oppose the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. Yet when people are asked specifically about the provisions of the Act, they are ...more

United States has a lot of things to do there that are fun and they have a lot if happy states (like Iowa in the tenth happiest place to live in) and they also have a lot of sports that they have there like football basketball and baseball and soccer people in usa are very happy to live in also

The people in the USA are very super happy.

Nope, this country is full of BS and fear - Songwind

6 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

This country surely deserves number 1 because it is the only country which had not splitted or divided or not having conflict even though it has 30 different cultures. Our Earth is so lucky to have a country India. Every country should learn the equality from India. There is no conflicts or wars in this country and every people have their own freedom and are equal.

India is the happiest country! I come from that country! And, I am very happy. India go number 1

An overpopulated country with most diverse people and culture... Still a great cooperative relation... Thumbs up for India

Uhm? india has millions of modern slaves. it's actually the country with the MOST modern slaves.

13 New Zealand New Zealand

New Zealand new goes to war. Since New Zealand is peaceful it's a beautiful and peaceful country no violence. I think people are very happy here. Unlike America, France, Germany, Russia, China, North Korea, India, Iraq, Israel, China, Somalia, South Africa, and Iran. In New Zealand you can just sit back and relax

I live in the best place on earth. The people are amazingly friendly and everything so peaceful. The weather is perfection and there are no dangerous places here. Yes I'm also proud to be kiwi

The Kiwis are usually calm and peaceful.

I'm a proud kiwi and living in Denmark for 2 years but I think that nz should be 1st and dk shouldn't because in nz everyone can have a good laugh with everyone and were all mates but in dk no one holds doors of no one and there like all inderpendant and rude.

14 Netherlands Netherlands

I think the Netherlands is one of the happiest countries in the world. The Netherlands + Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Austria are the best and most succesfull countries, combining market economies with large welfare states. That's why the US is absolutely not that great at all, although Americans think they are.

The Netherlands are one of the most happiest countries in the world... Look it up, it's a fact..

Netherlands is just amazing, the only bad thing about is the economic crisis. - Megapretzel

Needs to be higher.

15 Philippines Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

At the aftermath of a devastating storm you don't see people from other countries play basketball outside and have a laugh about it nor do you see people with smiles on their faces after a powerful earthquake. pretty much the fun attitude
Of FIlipinos.

All of the Filipinos always have wear smile on their face because they believe to think for the "positive". They always welcome and greet the tourists with warmness, friendly smile with sparkling eyes...

How is this country not on top 10? I think Filipinos are the happiest people I know in the world. I am very proud to be a Filipino.

I''m Spanish-American but I born in PH,all people here are always happy

Finland has the best economy I have ever seen!

17 Germany 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. more.
