the US has the most variety and diversity on every aspect of life, it is the TRUE land of opportunity compared to the other 2 countries....HOWEVER Canada is generally a more civil society and it cannot be understated that it is truly a MUCH safer country with less crazies and extremes than the neighbor to its south. It is cold and expensive though.

Australia has some vibrant cosmpolitan cities but it's too isolated and expensive so it's a distant third. Also it comes off as a more rowdy "party only" and less racially-tolerant society than the others.

Pardon me but I suggest Americans (people of the USA) to be more precise in the proper name of this country because as you can see there are people from all over the world in this forum and most people understand that AMERICA is the entire mass of land from Bering Strait and Barrow in AK to Tierra del Fuego and southern tip of Patagonia and includes the Caribbean. In the U.S. forum maybe it is understandable to use the name America of the country but the real name is the United States of America, not America. Canada IS in America, as is Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, etc. etc. all the way to Chile and Argentina.

Back to the topic.

The US is the least taxed country and most business friendly.
I think America's economy is the most dynamic of the three, followed by Canada......

Racially, the US is the most diverse, followed by Canada.
Skylines? Um, I would venture to say US because of NYC, Chicago, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, LA, Seattle.
Granted, Sydney's skyline is nice as well as T.Dot's, but still they pale in comparison to large American cities.

Transportation? I mean, i dunno, The US has zero rail for ppl to use. I dont think Australia is exactly a rail hub either..... Canada?
I think the US prob has the largest highway system out of the three simply because of a much larger population.

Lowest taxes ....for the individual or family, USA.

Canada has a lower corporate tax rate then the US,
infact it even came up during one of presidential debates last fall

What makes you state that Australia is less racially tolerant society than others? BTW the current Australian Prime Minister 2 children married Asians. Race riots are very rare in Australia too. Anyway there are more Asians that have move to Australia than Europeans and it been since the 1980s.

Australia being more of a "rowdy party"? What do you mean? Large number of people I know in Australia don't at all go to pubs or nightclubs.

Stereotypes are hard to kick, virtually nobody seems to know that beer consumption in Australia has fallen over 50% in 40 years.

Stereotypes are hard to shake, these days Australia only just scrapes into the top 50 in the world in terms of alcohol consumption per captia, according to world health organisation.

The days when we drunk like the Irish are long gone.
