switzerlandWhich country keeps its citizens the most happiest, you think? Which are the countries which are the happiest in the world? Well, Europe seems to rule the roost. The most countries in the top ten re from Europe, as far as satisfied citizens are concerned.

The reasons for this are varied, from development, infrastrcture, housing, environment, healthcare, economy, security, employment, taxes, and many more. It says a lot when the citizens of a country say that they are very happy with the way their lives are in their homeland. So, let’s check out the ten happiest countries on our planet. Ratings are done by the The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and are on a scale of 1 to 10.

1 Switzerland: 7.8
2 Norway: 7.7
3 Iceland: 7.6
4 Sweden: 7.6
5 Denmark: 7.5
6 Netherlands: 7.5
7 Austria: 7.4
8 Canada: 7.4
9 Finland: 7.4
10 Mexico: 7.3

It’s interesting to note that neither the united States nor the United Kingdom makes it to the top ten, something everyone would assume. Canada and Mexico are the only non-European countries to make it in the top 10.
