Since I wouldn't have a job, I'd need a country where the business climate is good for starting a new business. Ireland and Lithuania fit that bill (as do several Far East countries, ANZ and Canada, but no interest in moving to any of those).

So I'd start up a crappy Mexican restaurant to gouge American tourists. The market is wide open for one of those!

besides the USA...Have lived in Canada (Gulf islands), Asia (Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China), Spain, England...

Spouse has no interest in Africa or India... that is too bad, but I won't push the issue. If I survive the longest ... I can go there and live for awhile in PEACE. (no nagging / "told you so"). If I croak first.. (likely) Spouse will have a GREAT time living internationally. We much prefer to be gone than to be home.
I like your attitude!

that narrows it down to a single LONG and tall hemisphere. (& no need for crossing an Ocean!

Yup, lots to see and enjoy in America! I will be trying on SA for Christmas and later language immersion school.

Perfect climate would be the deciding factor. Some area where there'd never be a need for A/C, or a heater, and no insects (terrorists) to deal with! Have lived too long in Las Vegas with no mosquito's, gnats, woodticks or even flies!

And don't anyone say San Diego! Perfect climate? Then why so many houses there with fireplaces?

Qualifiers? Medellin/Cali Colombia? Arica/Iquique/Antofagasto Chile? Tegucigalpa, Honduras? Antigua/Guatemala City?

High heat and high humidity are perfect climate? I guess if you are a plant.

The northern coast of Chile lies within the Atacama Desert, driest desert in the world with .01 annual precip. a year. Heat/Humidity? How so?

I understand Cali/Medellin have the perfect balance of being rather tropical with just enough elevation, for cooler evenings, and not so hot days. Maybe wrong, but don't know about the insect issue. Bogota, at 8600 feet? That spells heater at night! Quito, Ecuador at 9500 feet? That would be even worse!

Tegucigalpa, Honduras: @3300 feet, a great altitude to be at in Central America. Guatemala City/Antigua @ 5000 feet, well, you might need a jacket at night occasionally.

Last time in Guatemala city, I'm no longer surprised to see people walking about at night with jackets, particularly with breezes! But not cold enough at night for a heater!
