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

Canadians are pretty kind, polite, with good manners, they are nicer outside of Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. Rural Canadians especially from Northern Ontario are pretty sweet country folk with nice accents

Canadians are usually kind, friendly, compassionate, self-disciplined, unassuming, and tolerant. However, it is the unfriendly attitude of people here in Toronto that really needs to change. Hubris doesn't mean greatness!

Canadians are stereotyped as the nicest people on Earth. I've lived in Canada for my whole life and I can definitely say that this is true!

2 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard... read more

Scandinavians are kind of cold and shy, but they warm up especially when they drink. Scandinavians are tolerant, chill, adventurous, and peaceful. Nordic countries are the best

Norwegians are one of the friendliest and kindest people in the world. They accept people of all races, therefore, making them one of the least racist people in the world. They are also friendly to tourists and foreigners, helping them if they need some help.

Lovely people, lovely country. Norwegians are one of the nicest people anyone can meet. They are very friendly to anyone; they do not discriminate others.

3 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe.

It borders Norway to the west and Finland to the east, and is connected to Denmark in the southwest by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund. At 450,295 square kilometers (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third-largest... read more

They are bit shy, but warm up. Swedes are pretty kind, maybe even more forward thinking then Norwegians. They are pretty great (and attractive)

4 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, is a country in Southeast Europe. It is situated on the southern tip of the Balkans, and is located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Greece shares land borders with Albania to the northwest, North Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north, and Turkey... read more

I love greek people. Moved to Greece 1 year ago

Greeks are very hospitable, loud, fun, and beautiful. Their country is beautiful and so are they

5 Denmark Denmark is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It is the most populous and politically central constituent of the Kingdom of Denmark, a constitutionally unitary state that includes the autonomous territories of the Faroe Islands and Greenland in the North Atlantic Ocean. European Denmark is the southernmost... read more

Danes are the most social out of the Nordics, and are nicer than Germans. They are very chill, funny, great sense of humor, fun drinking buddies.

We are generally friendly and kind, but also very reserved and Shy. So it might be a problem getting to befriend us, but Try to start and talk too us and we will be happy to answer and be social. P.S people never talk in the busses so don't talk there (;

From your random guy at Aarhus. Jutland

Denmark should have been in the top ten at least. I have been in Denmark and the people are very friendly and helpful.

6 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. Its capital is New Delhi.

"I traveled to India a year ago, asked a person way towards Chandani Chowk. He invited me to his home, we had the lovely Indian tea, and he was with me all the time we travelled through Chandani Chowk." -John Bruski, BBC World News

This is how friendly Indians are.

Nicer than canada, people always say how nice canadians are but a lot of them are rude and get angry at you easily, and wont help strangers or anything. (And I'm a canadian! )

7 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

Some confuse the politeness with traditional behaviour. Of course, there are many Japanese people who are very friendly but due of still being a strict and conservative society it seems they're always friendly. The fake smile as example can mean everything. Examples -
- The person is nervous and doesn't want to lose its face.
- He/She wants to sell you something.
- You did something awful and he/she actually thinks you're rude. etc.

Japanese people are kind, polite, smart, courteous, and gentle. They can be a bit shy and reserved, but they will help you

8 Iceland Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which (along with its surrounding areas) is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the only part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that... read more

Icelandic people are one of the friendliest and kindest people in the world.

Iceland has less/minimal racism like Norway, making these 2 countries the least racist countries in the world.

They do not discriminate other people.

They are very friendly and helpful to people of all nationalities, ethnics, and races.

Icelandic people are so kind, nice and friendly and they love and respect all races, ethnics and nationalities, and they despise nobody.

Iceland is actually the safest country in the world to live in. I know lots of people say the best country in the world to live in is the US, mainly cause of the freedom rights there. But look at Iceland and its people. It's like no one here wants to commit a crime. The Icelandic is more friendly than the world thinks.

9 Australia Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi), Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and... read more

Australians (and Kiwis) are super chill, fun, funny, and cool to be around. They love life and they live in one of the best countries in the world

Yes...Australians are friendliest people..I have Australian friend and he is so kind and friendly..

They are very friendly. Don't listen these two idiots with comments. I'm living on Canadian side of the border. But visited 25 countries in USA. Nice people. New Mexico is little less friendly. California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Nevada, Washington, New England, New York, Florida, Texas... Best people ever. With respect to Canada. Both are very nice.

The US people are nice because they get TRICKED by these people from other countries. A person from another country will ask an American do you mind going out and getting their umbrella then when they come back. OPPs their WALLET is gone. What I'm saying is the AmericanS are too friendly

13 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

We like French with or without foreign origins. Despite what you made read here or there, young people speak English well but also other European languages or even Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Arab.. especially in shops of large and medium cities. What I like with French, they have a lot of parties everywhere celebrating any anniversary or else, singing, dancing and inviting you to join... I did not find that in some other countries around.

I like French people, I visited about 8 different regions and they are all different (like their architecture), they are more or less open at the first contact, but some minutes after the icebreaker, they are friendly and warm. Easily they offer you a glass of wine or cup of coffee, don't refuse it.

It shares land borders with Sweden to the northwest, Norway to the north, and Russia to the east, with the Gulf of Bothnia to the west and the Gulf of Finland across Estonia to the south.

It is situated in the western Pacific Ocean and consists of around 7,641 islands that are broadly categorized under three main geographical divisions from north to south: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao... read more

Worst country ever, Philippines is not way friendly many Filipinos allows bullying and harassing them, (Example: The offensive word: bobo, dulldog, tanga, gago, king ina mo, death-to-ching-chong etc.) you think them they are friendly but there a fraud using or being a English speaker. If you want to friend a Filipino, many other countries living but they are trapped and cursed. So goodluck to enjoy wasting your time until you grow old and losing money, job and family.

Definitely should be number 1 it has the most beautiful women in the world (one of which I married by the way) a very loving and friendly people.
