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?
Ok... well Hungary which you put above Finland doesn't have access to any ocean. At least from Finland you can sail to Japan if you want. Hungary is also quite nazi, and for example Poland will not be very welcoming to your shemale girlfriend, while we just don't give a damn. If you still have him/her whatever, at least here she is accepted. Goddamn we even have priest who changed himself to a she.

I voted Saint Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, Trinidad & Tobago, Estonia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Israel, and Brunei in the chronological order of the poll.


Wealth with economics average annual income is not enough when there is too much isolation(Saint Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, Trinidad & Tobago) too dangerous(Israel, Kuwait), getting overshadowed by another neighboring country(Estonia, Qatar, Bahrain, Brunei), or a lack of entertaining life options(Same Caribbean micro islands said earlier, Brunei).


Surprised New Zealand, Ireland, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Slovenia, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay, and Malta weren't said at all in the poll. I wonder why?


Out of those countries on the list, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Latvia, Malaysia, UAE, Seychelles, and Kazakhstan are my favorite, and I would love to live in any of those nations.

Ambivalent on Russia, Oman, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Lithuania, Bahamas, and Panama mixed in between.


On the other side of the continuum spectrum, these are all of the countries BELOW the average annual income of $20,000 I am able to live in without a doubt, and enjoy my time there very easy: Romania(Technically lived there some summers already), Turkey, Azerbaijan, China (Technically all of these countries said before this sentence on this paragraph are extremely close to the $20,000 average mark around $17,000-$19,999 and there is tons of cities, towns, regions within those countries where the average annual income is already $20,000-$39,000), Mexico, Mauritius, Brazil, Thailand, Montenegro, Costa Rica, Peru, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Armenia, Fiji, Bhutan, Georgia, Philippines, Cape Verde, Vietnam, Kyrgyzstan, India, and Cambodia. All of these countries offer a high amount of attractive desirable traits, despite the statistical representation. Also, a majority of these countries already have their own established substantial wealthy, and middle class, even when they have this analyzed demographic evaluation of identification. Not always accurate anyways with the economic statistics.

1.You can pick a maximum of 6 countries, you picked 9.

2.Read OP why Saudi Arabia is not in the poll. If i made the poll again i would include Malta and probably Norway, Sweden, Ireland and New Zealand but not the other countries.

3.Interesting, you woud love to live in Kazakhstan/Latvia for longer than 6 months?

4.China is not close to $20k GDP (PPP) per capita.
I could live in almost all countries you listed (except Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Bhutan, Maldives) but Thailand, Philippines, Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico and maybe Vietnam/Cambodia are the only countries i would like to live in for longer than just 1 year.

I am going back to Kyrgyzstan next year, to seriously explore the prospects of moving their permanently. It's suburban Siberia, so I'll have to consider if I want to spend winters there.

I'm surprised all countries where the median income is over $20000, aren't included.. I wouldn't want to live in Canada, or the US, or France, or Germany or Spain, or Japan, or the UK .... etc.

They're all worse countries to live than my own, imo.

I just don't see that the original list is consistent.

No -sometimes people don't have to commit a heinous crime, to get executed. The US also has too many people for my liking. I'm more inclined to countries with smaller populations.
