There are certainly a lot of miserable countries out there, but Forbes was able to throw together some facts and figure out the top 10 happiest countries in the world.


At some point you have to wonder where the best place on Earth is to live, and now thanks to Forbes we can at least figure out where we will be happiest.  They polled people around the world to see how satisfied they are living in their country to find out exactly which one is the best.  The number 1 happiest country, Norway.  Turns out those death metal vikings totally love living in their own personal winter wonder land.  Now there is way more to Norway than über heavy metal and snow.  Turns out Norway has a top notch heath care system in place and people there on average make a pretty good living.

As you go through this your probably wondering where the good ole US of A came in and the answer is number 10.  I'm just happy we made the list because lately it seems like everyone is pretty unhappy here.  For the most part everyone is pretty satisfied with the government and health care here in America.  90% of   people polled said they were ok with exactly how things are being done right now.  So here is a look at the top 10:

10. United States

9. The Netherlands

8. Switzerland

7. Canada

6. Sweden

5. New Zealand

4. Australia

3. Finland

2. Denmark

1. Norway
