Top 5 Best Countries To Live In - Does Your Country Rank?
Considered one of the top countries for a healthy work-life balance, New Zealanders (or Kiwis, as they often refer to themselves) enjoy an extremely high quality of life due to their high GDP, relatively low inflation, free hospital system and their fantastic social welfare system. The crime rate in New Zealand is very low and in 2013 the country was recognized as the world's safest country. It also scores high in terms of political stability and effectiveness of foreign policy. And, that's not all; the country offers 4 weeks of paid vacation every year. Couple all this with some of the most beautiful nature and landscapes in the world, a peaceful countryside with low pollution, and a relatively small population, and it's easy to see why we consider it one of the best countries in the world to live in.
