"Finland ranks third in global gun ownership behind only America and Yemen; has the highest murder rate in western Europe"

It's almost like the two are linked.

Finland is ahead of Switzerland in gun ownership? That surprises me.

I have to wonder whether we can deport the people who have moved to California from shitholes like Ohio or Alabama back where they came from. I like the Salvadorans. They are hard working and have great food, unlike midwesterners and southerners
I like how you quote the food, that's the extent to which most liberals interact with foreign cultures. Not you specifically, maybe, I don't know you. Just funny how the benefit everyone seems to mention is diverse cuisine and nothing else.


And I don't think you have the slightest clue how fucking happy those of us living in the South and Midwest would LOVE to swap transplants with you smug fuckers from California. Austin and New Orleans have been absolutely swamped with idiots running away from the product of their own idiocy on the West Coast and love nothing more than to tell us that we, the ones who built the places to which they were so attracted, don't know how to live our lives properly.

So maybe they don't score perfect on all statistics. Still, overall, they do better than the USA. But you just can't admit that, can you?

Norway is one of the few successful models of government-heavy healthcare systems, but that's not all to life.
Sweden and Denmark but not Norway.

Norway is a "paradise" because they are only 3+ millions but live on the biggest oil field of the North Sea. They managed this treasure at best but the results cannot be comparable with countries without such ressources.

Sweden model is more interesting regarding their State management model.

Only two countries scored top of all the 2017 freedom indices for political rights, civil liberties, economic freedom, and press freedom. They were New Zealand and Switzerland.
Switzerland model is also very interesting. It is not al all the same as Sweden on the economical point of view and for the social protection. But they don''t really have natural ressources and perform quite good.

I'd say that the common point that I see is that :
* people are proud of their country and to live there
* the economical situation has been good for a long time

Nobody talks about these but what about Qatar, Emirates or Saudi. As long as you are a citizen of the country. No democracy but super wealthy. What do people want ? Anyway here they clearly take benefit of their ressources.

Norway could be compared with Nuru mess by the way.

I don't know well New Zealand and Australia ? How is life there ?

The Arabian countries are wealthy, but not free.
Australia and New Zealand are very nice. For me, New Zealand tops Australia, just because it is not so hot in summer.

Enjoy yourself with your Mercedes, 4th wife and your cheetah. Just have a company and lay all the day. Now, in Qatar.
Or
Select your president, be free, you can have safaris in our jungles. Good for a vacation. Austalia is waiting you.
