I think this is a good point; sort of a "wow/sq mile" factor.
I agree with the above, and others', inclusion of NZ: it's the size of Colorado yet has hundreds of miles of pristine, near-deserted beaches; active volcanoes; rain forests, glaciers, mountains, mountainous island (Cook Straits), etc. etc. A remarkable, maybe unmatched, variety of landscapes for such a relatively small area.

Slovenia and Poland strike me as very pretty. Green, woodsy; Slovenia has mountains, Poland has gentle hills. Both places strike me as eye candy. And the (mature) Polish men do too.

Forgot the rest:

Switzerland
US
Panama
Costa Rica
Canada--I don't know it's not getting more mentions. There is beauty on both coasts and in the Canadian Rockies. Perhaps there's no Grand Canyon, but there is much rugged beauty.

Maybe because people not visited yet, the point of this thread is to rank the top 5 most beautiful countries you've visited.
