Norway displaced Denmark as the world’s happiest country as Thailand was ranked 32 compared to last year’s 33rd ranking in the World Happiness Report 2017 produced by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, a global initiative launched by the United Nations in 2012.

 

Nordic countries are the most content whereas countries in the sub-Saharan Africa, along with Syria and Yemen, are the least happy of the 155 countries ranked in the fifth annual report released at the UN.

 

Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Sweden rounded out the top ten countries.

 

South Sudan, Liberia, Guinea, Togo, Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Central Africa Republic were at the bottom.

I suspect one of the questions was omitted in the survey here. You know, the "are you aware you are being oppressed?" one.

Either omitted, or the people questioned didn't understand the question, and just smiled.

I hope Sweden is content.

Yeah, there is a lot of content in Sweden alright. Not sure that all of it is happiness, though.
Like the ship is sinking fast, and have probably generated in that people are just not aware of the cathastrophy coming. Just trying to be happy about what´s still left.

Aforex, Many Thais are happy, they are lucky in that they are completely unaware of how people in other countries live. This is mainly due to the fact that from an early age,that are brainwashed into thinking that everything is perfect in Thailand.

 However many of the educated,who are not part of the elite,realise what the score is. So are you suggesting that they should also go somewhere else.
