No they aren't warm but still warmer, less expensive and less isolated than Finland.

Slightly milder temperatures/closer to the rest of Asia plus more Mongoloid people.

Other than Finland and Iceland they all seem pretty bad, for different reasons though.

Weird list. I would rather live in UAE than USA. I would also rank Finland, Iceland, Kuwait and Qatar above the Us.

I think its even weirder that you rank UAE, Kuwait and Qatar above the U.S... Unless you're a money hungry Muslim who doesn't care about human rights.

It isn't more isolated than Seychelles/Bahamas but the weather and cost of living are better for me, probably has more friendly people as well that's why i prefer it to Finland.

Not to be confused with a money hungry Judaeo-Christian who doesn't care about human rights.

So is the hard truth that you know nothing about Finland, you have never been to Finland, or have any actual knowledge of our country. Just because it's cold in the winter and has a border with Russia, it simply has to be a bad place to live. Ignoring the fact that we are one of the most successful countries on this f**king planet, it still has to be bad. We have everything you have in the Netherlands (except decriminalised weed), not isolated at all, and the fact we border Russia doesn't affect our lives in any way.

No, we don't have 24/7 cities, but does the Bahamas? Or Belgium? No.

Finland and Iceland are about the only two countries on that list where I would expect living standards and societal conditions to be virtually the same as in my own country.

The Netherlands is not even in my Top 20 of 194 Countries to Live in, I just don't have any other choice at the moment unfortunately.

Finland doesn't have straight access to open ocean and overseas territories like the Netherlands does

When did i say the Bahamas and Belgium are great countries to live in?
