It’s hard to believe a country that was founded on soft cheese, baguettes, and surrendering could have the lowest obesity rates in Europe -- but it's true. Perhaps France just had eating well down to a science before junk food really came into the picture.
This is the least shocking "best" on this list. The most highly populated country in the EU, Germany, still manages to have enough jobs to go around. Germans = efficient.
Here are three things Greeks love: eating food their mothers made, talking smack about the Turks, and not having tuberculosis. The country has a rate of only 5 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
Everybody pays for things that don’t get taxed sometimes, like when you pay a babysitter, buy from a lemonade stand, or decide it’s easier to just hire henchmen and pay them in sacks of money with "$$$" printed on the side. Some countries do a lot of off the record economic activity (**cough** **cough** Italy), and others, such as Hungary, reportedly do very little.
