    Default The most successful countries in the world...

    ...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.

    They can't be that much happier if you look at the suicide rates
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

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

    What's the benefit of that? You don't have enough light to see them during most of the year.
