Colombia crept into first place with a satisfaction score of 8.4, narrowly forcing Mexico (8.3) into second place. That's right: despite what you've heard in the news about corruption and drug cartel dangers, Mexico has the second-highest life satisfaction level in the world. Aaaand cue the Donald Trump apologists.
The race for third place turned into a three-way tie between Norway, Qatar, and Switzerland (8.0), all of which are remarkably expensive places to live, proving that while money might not buy happiness outright, it sure as hell goes a long way toward leading a satisfied life.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe and Tanzania both share the title of "least satisfied country" with a score of 3.9, beating out Moldova by .7 points -- although, is it still "beating out" if you're competing for last place?
