china is capitalist , its just they have invented their own unique form of capitalism , sounds like an oxymoron but state run capitalism is what they have , workers dont seem to have much of a say in china

The U.K. and France should become a part the U.S. so it's easier for people to move among the 3 countries.

Switzerland, Canton of Geneva
I like it's central location, the use of French (without being around the French), it's public transport system, the social culture, the cosmopolitan environment, the weather, the mix of the old and new architecture, the general pace of life

Is there a country that has hot blonde women, free beer, and a gun distribution programme? If so, please tell me.

I would like to think myself as a laidback person who thrives in a workplace that has a friendly environment and doesn't pressurise me to finish my tasks instantly, appreciate the arts and history, and prefers somewhere that is tolerant of different races and culture and homosexuals.

Canada comes to my mind.

Yes, yes and yes.

In this country (the US), it would be the Northeastern cities and, in Canada, it would be Montreal.

If not that, and I could find a way to make it pencil, it would be Italy, Spain or Portugal.

The OECD Better Life Index ranked Australia as #1 for me.

#2 was Norway, #3 was the USA. Sweden and Switzerland round out the top 5.

Canada came in 7th. The UK came in 12th.

I want a do-over!
