...by most measures are the Scandinavian countries. Where the free market co-exists with an almost socialist and paternalistic government. Discuss or abuse Lucy (the new Chico) or whatever.

Successful in which way?

In creating mediocricy? I agree.
They are great countries to live in if your want a medium life in all aspects. If you want to stick out a bit in some way - you are better off somewhere else.

Not really. The only country to qualify for Euro 2008 is Sweden and they are very unlikely to win.

So a country that qualifies and does well in Euro 2008 = a successful country?
