The 10 Happiest Countries To Live In The World – Seen as the World’s Safest Countries


Happiness can mean very different things to
different people. The countries with the happiest immigrants
are not the richest countries, but instead the countries with a more balanced set of
social, and institutional supports for better lives. Here are the ten happiest countries to live
in the world for 2019; many of these countries are seen as the world’s safest countries. 10. Austria. Austria scored particularly highly in social
support and its citizens’ freedom and was no doubt helped by its capital Vienna – now
widely regarded to be the world’s most liveable city. 73% of Austrians are satisfied with their
lives despite high levels of air pollution and schools that are less than stellar. Maybe the lower-than-average crime rate explains
why Austrians feel so good. The Alps cover around 62% of Austria, making
it one of the most scenic and extensive skiing destinations. 9. Canada. Although Canada is still ranked as one of
the happiest nations in the world, it did drop two spots from last year. Canada still ranks high across pretty much
every category with great life expectancy married to a still small population with more
than enough room to spread out and find their corner of paradise. According to the report, part of Canada’s
high happiness score also comes from its tolerant approach to multiculturalism, via programs
that promote inter-ethnic understanding. 8. New Zealand. Holding steady once again in the eighth spot,
New Zealand remains a relaxed, welcoming wonderland that loses none of its appeals, whether you’re
on vacation or based there permanently. The people here don’t place too much emphasis
on work, spend lots of time outside, and aren’t overly concerned about “personal achievement”
or status. New Zealand is also known for beautiful landscapes,
outdoor adventure sports including Bungy jumping, jet boating, and sky diving, as well as significant
climate, good food. 7. Sweden. Essentially swapping places with Canada since
last year, Sweden has once again benefitted from excellent social support and a high life
expectancy. The Swedish government lists perks such as
long parental leave policies, free schooling, and baby-friendly public areas. Health care, as well as a college education,
are free, and its people boast one of the longest life expectancies in the world. 6. Switzerland. It’s one of the world’s wealthiest countries
and has been well-known for centuries for its neutrality. Their welfare and healthcare programs are
amongst some of the best in the world. The average life expectancy is 83; they are
multilingual, with most citizens understanding German, French, and English. The Swiss see public transportation as a right;
they’ve got a bus system that ensures no one in the country has to walk more than 10 minutes
to get to public transportation. 5. The Netherlands. A country in northwestern Europe is known
for a flat landscape of canals, tulip fields, windmills, and cycling routes. The country’s also renowned liveability,
progressiveness, and work-life balance. Famously relaxed and welcoming, their particular
brand of lifestyle has propelled to the fifth happiest country on Earth. The pace of life and freedom are particularly
strong points that put a smile on many residents’ faces. 4. Iceland. The island nation was rated to be the most
peaceful nation on Earth. Beautiful landscapes that make you feel like
you’re wandering through Middle Earth. By far the world’s most equality-driven
country, tiny Iceland’s isolation has been a boon rather than a burden to its equally
tiny population. Iceland offers a relatively low-income tax,
free health care, and free higher education to its citizens. 3. Norway. Norway’s consistently described as Europe’s
most beautiful country that benefits from little to no corruption, phenomenal social
support and freedom and a regular top spot in the world’s prosperity indexes. Norway provides free education, public pensions
and universal healthcare for its residents, and is widely considered to be an exemplar
of social and economic success. People in Norway tend to have a great deal
of social support, trust their government, and live a long life. Both the poverty rate and the gender pay gap
are amongst the lowest in the world. 2. Denmark. Benefiting from excellent life expectancy
and one of the smallest wealth gaps in the world, it’s got to have its eye on the top
spot for 2020. Denmark is a small country with a low crime
rate and a low fear of crime. The Danish are generally well educated, well
informed. Denmark has a stable government, low levels
of public corruption, and access to high-quality education and health care. The country does have the highest taxes in
the world, but the vast majority of Danes happily pay: They believe higher taxes can
create a better society. 1. Finland. Finland is one of the most peaceful countries
in the world. It has the highest quality of life. The country of about 5.5 million people is
home to around 300,000 foreign nationals, with its largest immigrant groups being from
other European nations. It’s the only country in the developed world
where fathers spend more time with school-aged children than mothers. In particular, the generosity of its people
with little to no corruption and high GDP, married to the extraordinary freedom offered
by its landscapes and social structure make it the place to live. And if you can’t live there, we highly recommend
a visit to these countries. Thanks for watching the video, and see you
next time.
