Top 14 Best Countries In The World
In terms of Culture & Natural beauty
(Warning this list in subjective)

1. Brazil - Cultural history and its biodiversity. Amazon rainforest...

2. United States of America - Its natural beauty, biodiversity, diversity in its terrains and huge cultural influence. From the Rocky mountains, the great plains, endless rolling Temperate forests to the steamy swamps in the south-east.

3. China - The sheer size of China has to put it in one of the best Countries in the world. From tropical jungle to desert this Country has to be explored. Its ancient culture is something to explore, too.

4. India - The Indus valley civilization to India's modern Cities to its cuisine that has spread all over the world from the Caribbean to small towns in Northern England. India is a beautiful Country in its own right.

5. Australia - The aboriginal residents are thought to have the oldest Culture(s) in the world. Its stunning mars-like landscape in the interior is something to be wondered.

6. United Kingdom - This Country has had a monumental impact on the planet on every single continent. The UK is known to having the greenest of grass literally not figuratively.

7. Peru - Its ancient pre-Colombian civilizations the Incas and the current day colonial Spanish influence makes Peru one of the best.

8. Mexico - From the Mayans to Mexico's dynamic landscape, natural beauty nothing can compare to Mexico and its greatness in its own right.

9. Sudan - The location of the ancient Kingdom of Kush. What else should be said?

10. Ethiopia - The only Country in Africa not to be colonised only being ''occupied'' by Italians. This was the location of the Kingdom of Aksum.

11. Ecuador - The same as Peru a Country that has a rich ancient history.

12. Egypt - Um, Ancient Egypt...

13. Papua New Guinea - A Country that hardly anyone knows about. What is more interesting than that?

14. Tanzania - ****Megafauna and natural beauty****

Australia is too dry, Germany is flat and plain with little redeeming qualities from man made structures (very dull, not as majestic as roman countries), Canada is too suburban and lacks beaches (that are good), and the U.K. Is too small and not diverse enough.

I think the greatest wealthy and populated nations are:

The U.S.
The U.K.
France
Germany
Japan

Order doesn't matter much.

I could flip a coin on the two countries as places to visit. Japanese culture is fascinating and I could wander around Kyoto for weeks without getting bored.

Southern France is my 1a favorite destination after Japan.

As far as living in either, I couldn't make it in Japan. Toeing the mark 24/7 would be too much and I would end up throwing myself on a katana after too long. OTH, it's easy to see myself sipping wine for the rest of my life on the patio of a old French farmhouse if life afforded me such a luxury.

Murica! Cause there ain't no doubt, I love this land, god bless the USA!

If I had to chose among the two, I'd rather say Japan. Food is a tie, as both countries have excellent food. Culture also is a tie, as both countries have a rich culture and long history. Economy of both countries in general is good but currently weaker than it could be. The superior civilisation and manners of Japanese, the order and cleaniness makes the difference in the end.

France is a lot more relaxed and laid back than Japan, and I much prefere have a nice coffee or cold beer and watching the world do by in somewere like Biarritz than fighting my way through crowds.
