I guess the most boring COUNTRIES to live in for me would be Mauritania, Niger, Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Bangladesh, North Korea and all small islands in the Pacific Ocean except Hawaii.

Hawaii isn't a country. It's the U.S.

Even the sunbelt, notorious for it's cookie cutter housing throughout the last decade, is relatively expensive looking and very pretty. Not monotonous at all anymore

The things that impress me as a tourist outside the US are: Natural scenery, city layout (whether a city has interesting architecture and a vibrant downtown area with open-air markets), how much clothing the young ladies wear (sadly, I'm being serious about that) and how irrational the culture is (the more you face-palm at their activities, the more interesting the culture).

The Scandinavian countries have a bit of natural beauty, but only Norway is actually gorgeous in places. The cities are drab, though outside of that there are some interesting architectural innovations. The women tend to bundle up against the cold and only get naked in large but expensive public hot tubs (yes, I have a good imagination). And as a society they are too damn perfect, their govt is an excellent hybrid system if burdensome at times, their environmental practices heal the planet, and they are way too rational to be interesting. So that's a down vote.

Any Muslim countries are highly irrational, so you'd think that would be good, but that irrationality is often in a fanatical religious way making them get upset if a pretty girl shows her mouth or ankle, rather than something cool and interesting. They are also boring on the other counts, though Indonesia and Malaysia are a bit more colorful and interesting.

Actually they're not as bad as all that, but their religion (not the people) scares and disgusts me, and I wouldn't want to put tourist money into their economy considering where it might end up - that's the same reason I won't buy street drugs.

I've never been to Australia, but I have the impression it can be boring outside Sydney and Melbourne.

I have no interest whatsoever in Antarctica, which I suppose is claimed by some countries. Nor have I any interest in the Moon, which I suppose is American on the Earth facing side, and maybe Chinese or Russian on the other side.
