Norway - The best country in the world, according to the UN

According to the latest UN Human Development Report released earlier this week, if you want an all-round great life, Norway is the place to live. The study ranks countries on their education, wealth and life expectancy, using figures compiled by the United Nations Development Programme.

According to the Telegraph and the Daily Express, Norway ranked highest on educational achievements including adult literacy rates and enrolment in primary, secondary and university institutions, scoring a near perfect score. They also fared very well when it came to life expectancy and GDP per head.

For the first time in almost 30 years, Britain dropped out of the top 20, losing out to the likes of New Zealand, Demark and bizarrely, Lichtenstein. The index ranks a total of 182 countries on how developed they are.

It would be really interesting to hear your thoughts on the report. Let me know what you think.
