This year's happiest place on Earth is Finland, according to an annual UN report - toppling Norway from the top spot.

The World Happiness Report measures "subjective well-being" - how happy people feel they are, and why.

Nordic countries regularly appear in the top five, while war-hit countries and a number in sub-Saharan Africa regularly appear in the bottom five.

As if there's enough reasons as to why Finland's so great, from saunas to the mysteries of Lapland. Now, it had been named the happiest place on Earth, topping Norway from last year's results. From someone who has had a big interest in the country for so long, just that alone makes me want to go there right now. Really :O Although, I remembered that Denmark took the top position years back and even so, it's always the Nordic countries that are taking the lead and I wonder why. Well, there are secrets as to why all its people are so happy and if we can be like them.

Sweden has some political problems right now, it isn't great for them at the moment.

Finland is a surprise to me. If you have met a Finnish person they don't seem very happy from my experience. :lol: Norway will be at the top again soon. :giggle:

I knew that handling immigration was their main issue as from what I've read, they were too lenient of welcoming migrants in. And then after that this happened.

Well even so, I hope they can pull things together along with other things wrong with it. A shame really because, I've always wanted to visit there one day :(

It's also now got the highest rape rate in Europe the last time I checked. People there are not happy about the way their country has been handled at all. It's a shame, and hopefully it can be as safe as it once was there, or else people are going to show their anger one day :(

Didn't know that about Sweden, just going by past experience all their people seem so bubbly and vibrant.
