Finland – The Happiest Country in the World


Finland has been again named as the happiest country in the world for the fourth year running. This annual UN-sponsored event states that Finland has been the happiest country for a really long time. It was followed by Denmark in second place, Switzerland in third place, followed by Iceland and Netherlands. The data received from the analytics researcher Gallup had asked people from 149 countries to rate how happy they are.

The country that is supposedly the most unhappy in the world war Afghanistan, followed by Lesotho, Botswana, Wanda, and Zimbabwe. Many countries were an addition to this list that performed better, like some Asian countries that got better rankings than the last years. China moved up to the 84th spot from the 94th.

This report is perhaps a general awakening for the people and also for the countries to see how happy or unhappy their citizens are. Many countries are consistently seen as unhappy when asked. This could be a great reason for the countries to look after their citizens and provide them the basic means to happiness by taking care of their needs and requirements.

Let us see if Finland can hold its number one spot in the coming year as well.
