I chose Sweden. I'm not gonna fill out the questionnaire. There wouldn't be much of a difference. But, I do like Norway and Denmark, too! Loved it there.

I've never been to Sweden or Denmark so Norway for me, as I've been there twice and can (well, used to be able to) speak the language. I'm a big admirer of how stable, sensible, clean, well educated and overall how civilised all of the Nordic countries are, but Norway would be my favourite anyway because of the landscape, the fact they've told the EU to **** off twice and prospered anyway, and how restrained and dignified the reaction of the Norwegian people was to what happened at Utoya.

As for climate diversity, one should mind that Greenland is (still) Danish and is an overwhelming place (yes, not only populated by white bears, Godhab/Nuuk the capital is a real city), so it should be taken into account!
And I concur, I met Danish , Swedish and Norwegians people, the Danish are the friendliest- a special mention for Danish women who are nice and uncomplicated, not the "French princesses"!!!!

30-40 years ago it was :
Norway has the Scenery
Denmark has the Charm
Sweden has the Money

Today, I am not sure anymore, but I really like the Scandinavian countries.
I never lived there permanently, work and visits was most of my thing there, so I have no preferences.

As a Swedish native I'm of course quite biased.
