Are you guys mad because your countries did not make it to the Top 15? These rankings are not perfect but they are for the most part accurate.

well... this is a bit questionable " And it's not hard to see why --they rank extremely well in health, civic engagement, and housing"

Housing is quite expensive here. (Aus)

The list would be even ****tier if my country makes it to the top 15.

Quality of life is just very subjective,that's all I'm saying.

Every local I met most of the time complain about the housing prices in their country. I mean who wouldn't?

But one thing is for sure, housing price in Australia is still cheaper than in Singapore, that didn't make a cut in Top 15.

Taiwan should be in the top 15. I myself witnessed the good quality of life by Taiwanese in my 4 months assignment there.

The comment about voter turnout or "Civic Engagement" is a bit silly as well, voting is compulsory in Australia, of course voter turnout is going to be high.
