Top 20 Best Countries to Live in 2017.
Norway often tops the list of happiest country in the world.
If you are on a budget
than Norway might not be the best country to live in
but if you have a good amount of money to spend
then you will be amazed by the quality of life
this European country offers.
If you are an American or European
who wants to live in a country for one year then you
should surely give Norway a try.
Norwegians know how to balance work life and
you will find the country even more alive during weekends.
They are party loving people
and you will be filled with positivism and happiness automatically
by seeing so many happy faces around yourself.
UN ranked Iceland as one of the best country to live in for several years.
Do not get fooled by the name as Iceland is not icy.
Early settlers of the country named it Iceland
so that it tricks foreigners from settling down there.
It actually worked as today
Iceland has one of the lowest populations in the world.
Jules Verne beautifully described the untouched natural beauty of Iceland
in his popular novel Journey to the center of the earth.
The country has few of the most beautiful places in the world
and you will get lost in its natural beauty.
Even though the country has smallest army in the world
yet it is called as one of the safest country in the world
due to its remoteness from the rest of the world.
So if world war 3 happens
then you should probably move to Iceland
as no other country would consider attacking it.
Even though Australia is home to some of the most dangerous animals in the world
(Inland taipan, Box Jellyfish)
yet it is also among the favorite countries of Immigrants.
This is because of two factors.
Firstly Australia is a developed country
which means it provides better education, better health care
and better opportunities to its citizens.
Secondly Australia is largely unexplored.
This island nation/continent is the sixth largest country in the world
(by area) but
it has the lowest population density with just 2.8 people per kilometer square.
Summers could be hard in Australia but overall Australia has pleasant climate.
Many immigrants have cited that Australia is good country for people with no money.
这意味着 哪怕没钱 也能在澳大利亚生存
This means that you can survive in Australia even if you are poor.
One might think that the country that once conquered the whole world will be way too
costly for them to settle down
but that’s not true.
England is actually one of the best countries to live in the modern world.
The modern global culture is largely adapted and inspired from the English culture.
There are many reasons for a person to dream about settling down in England.
First and foremost is the free health care policy that England provides to its citizens.
Second is the education system that is now followed by many other developed countries.
英国人被批种族歧视 某种程度上 是这样
English people are criticized for racism and to some degrees it is true.
But the government do all in its power to stabilize equality among its citizens.
England is among the top ten countries in almost every field that you can imagine.
比如运动（足球 板球 高尔夫）
Be it sports (Football, Cricket, Golf,
（网球 英式橄榄球 拳击 摔跤）
Tennis, Rugby, Boxing, wrestling),
音乐（披头士 皇后乐队 滚石乐队）
Music (The Beatles, Queen, The Rolling Stones),
电影（肖恩·康纳利 安东尼·霍普金斯 伊恩·麦克莱恩 帕特里克·斯图尔特）
Movies (Sean Connery, Anthony Hopkins, Ian Mckellen, Patrick Stewart,
Sean bean, EMMA WATSON),
Literature (William Shakespeare) or
Science (Isaac Newton, Alan Turing, Stephen Hawking).
I guess I proved my point on why England is the best country to settle down.
When it comes to equality and civil liberties no nation come close enough to compete Sweden.
Sweden is one among the 58 countries who follows Universal health care policy.
Out of the 58 countries Sweden has the best policies for Universal health care.
This does not mean that you will get free health services
but it actually refers to a system where
all the health services are provided to its citizens at a cheaper rate.
Sweden also follows Tertiary education system.
Sweden is praised globally for its role in protection of civil liberties and equality.
Sweden has large number of immigrants from Middle East
and this is because of his positive take on immigration policies.
The country is also known for its natural beauty.
United Nations once called Finland as one of the best countries to live in for young adults.
The reasons were obvious – Finland has one of the best education systems in the world.
If you are poor student who is looking for quality education overseas
then Finland is best pick for you.
Not just education but you can find a high paying job too in Finland
as it has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world.
Finland was late to industrial revolution (started in 1950s)
but you won’t believe the exponential growth that Finland achieved in Industrialization.
Finland was called as the most stable country in the world
这意味着 哪怕芬兰体制瓦解 国家仍会继续运行
which means that the country will still go on even if the system collapses.
Health wise too Finland is great country to live in.
First of all,
Finland government is serious towards nature preservation
thus diminishing the chances of pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.
Secondly the country has a good health care system
and you can get high quality health services at a very cheap price.
Finland is tolerant country
哪怕你是同性恋 黑人 芬兰也会欢迎你
so it does not matter if you are gay or black you are welcome there.
BBC Once conducted an online poll for best countries to live in the world
and Japan topped the list with more than 100K votes.
Japan is the only Asian country in this list
and we can say that it tops the list of best countries to live in Asia.
If you take a look on the list of oldest people in the world
then you will find a lot of Japanese in the list.
This is because of two reasons –
Firstly Japan has a strict policy on gas emissions of nuclear reactors
and secondly Japan has high quality health care services.
Japanese hospitality is above expectations and
不管你是美国人 亚洲人 欧洲人还是非洲人
it doesn’t matter if you are American Asian, European or African
Japanese will treat you as equal.
the country is known for its discipline and optimism toward life.
US bombed Japan twice in World War 2
and still the country managed to not only survive but
in fact become one of the best countries in the world to live in.
Japan has a very low crime rate
and there are very few homeless people compared to total population.
Also you will fall in love with the natural beauty that the country offers.
If you are there don’t forget to visit Mount Fuji.
3: United States of America.
You will hear a lot of people telling you that United States of America is overrated.
Say what you want
but USA is the supreme leader of the world right now
and it will continue to be so for the next 30 to 40 years.
Don’t you want to be the citizen of the world’s most powerful country?
There are different laws in different states of America
but 90% of the people are friendly and helping.
USA has a strict policy for immigration
so it is not easy to settle down in US.
But if you are lucky enough to get the green card
and grab the opportunity as USA is the land of opportunities.
US citizens have proved themselves in every field.
USA is the best country to live in for dreamers.
Just read the Wikipedia page of Canada
and you will get all the reasons of why
Canada is among the best countries to live in.
Canada achieved near independence in 1931
and in such short span this country has shown excellent development.
Canadians are often cited as the most humble people on earth.
Canada has the lowest crime rates in the world.
It ranks ninth in Human development Index
and ranks in top ten in terms of per capita income.
Canada has very friendly immigration policy
and this is the reason why people from different countries
have settled down in Canada over the past few decades.
加拿大住着不同种族 信仰 国家的人
Canada has people from different races, religions and countries.
That is why it is a multicultural nation.
不管你是黑人 同性恋 女人还是老人
It doesn’t matter if you are black, gay, woman or old;
Canada welcomes all (As long as you are not a law breaker).
就教育 健康 工作机会而言
Education wise, Health wise and job opportunities wise
Canada ranks above other countries including US.
If you are from Asia
then Canada is one of the best countries to live in for you.
1: New Zealand.
They say that only legendary movies are shot in New Zealand
and if you are movie lover like me
than this reason is more than enough to dream about settling down in this island nation.
Avatar and The Lord of the rings are among the iconic movies show in New Zealand.
Do you know the actual reason of why Directors like Peter Jackson and James Cameron
chose New Zealand over other countries to shoot their movies?
First reason is of course its natural beauty.
You get to see the endless Pacific Ocean
and the beautiful mountains in one shot.
Second is the freedom given to its citizens.
New Zealand is often praised for its press freedom.
New Zealand has strong economy with quality health care,
cheap education and high quality of life.
New Zealand is surely the best country to live in 2017.
