Considering the following factors, which place would be the best to be right now?
Economy, safety, education, politics, people.
I would vote Switzerland.

the best place to be right now is where I am right now. And that is always the case, regardless of where I am.
So right now, the best place to be is Brussels, Belgium.

Finland, Norway or Denmark.

Not Sweden because of the chronic lack of affordable housing in the large cities, and an emerging housing bubble which is destined to break at some point.

Those are actually the least of Sweden's problems.

Not Switzerland. Costs of living, especially housing, health insurance, and groceries are outrageous even for Swiss salaries. Cities look dull and gray and even slightly run down. I briefly worked for a so called Swiss precision company recently and I found the overall skill level to be a huge disappointment, I would have expected much better. It's a small country with a small population and limited opportunities.

The landscape is nice but not as stunning as other parts of Europe. People are very reserved and only moderately friendly. It has its benefits, it's safe, neutral and not in the EU but not the best country out there.

I think New Zealand should be mentioned at least once here.
