The rating “Where is the happiest country?” was reported by nef. This is based on a degree of satisfaction about welfare and environment, and life expectancy. The happiest country is Vanuatu. Second place is Colombia, third is Costa Rica.
The scores of advanced countries:G8 are generally bad, for example, Japan is 95th, England is 108th and U.S.A is 150th. None of the G8 is in the top 50. Although they have a big power of economic, they are not happy Crying or Very sad ….How come?
What is more important thing than money? Are you satisfied with your country?

Money and power don't bring welfare if they spent their money and power for only their conutry. Powerful contries have to consider whole world problem. Especially poor countries problems like African countries. If they don't consider, they can't control their power in a righ way. They get lots of enemy. At the end money and power don't bring welfare.

It's hard to tell, since I haven't been there for almost 2 years...

Certainly I don't value a country as a general concept, I'm not that much of a patriot. I value certain people and I think that's what really matters

There are a lot of liars and thieves in Italy!
There are two political parts that don't reflect the idea of italian majority.
One is obliged to vote ex-communists or fascist-laicists-liars-thieves...
The best way is Lega!...
