Thailand seems like a great choice, followed by China & Malaysia.

Most of Iran isn't that bad. Almost everybody can distinguish between individual people and their governments.

Also, Iran is more liberal and progressive than Saudi Arabia. Which is hilarious.

Seriously, Guayaquil? Isn't it a hotbed of corruption,not to mention the steamy weather? American and European expats prefer the highlands.

Bulgaria--I could do that. Russia, too. And Romania. As long as they all got corruption under control.

patrix542, why Ukraine? Just curious.

Russia is the most corrupt non-3rd world country in the world.

Cape Verde and Colombia seem OK. Bhutan is also interesting, but they probably don't even want to be on any GDP list, given their priority
Lots of places are not appealing to me because of Islam, crime, bugs, and a few other things.

Their Gross National Happiness scale failed to take into account domestic violence, which reports say is rampant. Another good idea shot down in flames.

Domestic violence is a problem in the West and Islamic countries as well.
