The Happiest Country in the World Is . . . Not the U.S.

You probably wouldn't believe this with all the chaos that has happened in America over the past few years . . . but we're pretty happy in our lives, relatively speaking.


Every year, Gallup puts out a "World Happiness Report," which ranks how people in more than 130 countries evaluate the quality of their lives to find the world's happiest countries. And for the sixth year in a row, Finland is #1.


Denmark is #2 . . . Iceland is #3 . . . and the rest of the Top 10 is: Israel . . . the Netherlands . . . Sweden . . . Norway . . . Switzerland . . . Luxembourg . . . and New Zealand.  (So yes, there are FIVE Nordic countries in the Top 7.)


The U.S. is #15 out of 137 countries, which isn't bad at all. We're just below Canada and Ireland . . . and just ahead of Germany and Belgium.


Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Sierra Leone are the countries where people are LEAST satisfied and happy with their lives. They finished just below Zimbabwe, Congo, Botswana, Malawi, Comoros, Tanzania, Zambia, Madagascar, and India.
