But seriously, Norway ranked within the top 10 of every category. Switzerland, unsurprisingly, took the second spot, with high scores in both economy and governance (duh). Another nordic nation, Denmark, came in third, scoring in the top 10 of almost every category besides health, where it placed 16th. Not too shabby, really.
But where is the blessed US of A??? Unfortunately, Uncle Sam just missed the top 10. The US came in 11th in the overall ranking. Meanwhile, our polite cousin in the north, Canada, managed to come in 6th. Obviously some maple syrup changed hands giving Canada the edge, but whatever. America is still great. We've got cheeseburgers. And, well, like 70% of our country isn't tundra where nobody lives. Suck it, Canada.
