Quote:Canada’s ranking as the top nation in the world for personal freedom can be found in the Legatum Institute’s 2015 Prosperity Index. The London-based international public policy think tank released its findings Monday.

For a broad look at prosperity, the educational charity ranked 142 countries in eight categories: the economy, entrepreneurship/opportunity, governance, education, health, safety/security, social capital and personal freedom.

“The idea behind the personal freedom sub-index is that freedom constitutes a part of your own individual well-being, but it’s also an important component of national prosperity,” Gamester said. “Some of the things that we measure in that category include tolerance for ethnic minorities and immigrants. We look at people’s satisfaction with their freedom of choice and their civil liberties as well.”

Since 2009, Canada has risen five places to the top of the personal freedom sub-index: 94 percent of Canadians think they have the freedom to direct the courses of their own lives.

Here are the top 10 countries for personal freedom:

1. Canada
2. New Zealand
3. Norway
4. Luxembourg
5. Iceland
6. Ireland
7. Sweden
8. Denmark
9. Australia
10. Uruguay

Your thoughts on this? I'm kind of disappointed that the United States couldn't make the top ten for personal freedom, but at least we are still in the green at rank 15.

Interesting stuff. Canada has always been one of those countries that has just been kind of off the radar for me. Usually gets overshadowed by all the stuff that goes on in the USA. Definitely should pay more attention to it as it seems like a pretty interesting place. These statistics definitely add to that. Pretty disappointed at the UK's fairly poor positions for things like education and health etc. I'd be curious to see some comparisons for things like private vs free healthcare etc.

Feel free to PM me if there is anything I can help with!
Also if you just want to talk I'm always available.

All in all, New Zealand is probably one of the best choices imo.

I actually know someone from Canada who is the biggest asshat of a friend.

He's cool though.

Yes, the moose-riding anti-loli task force is truly an organization to be feared.

Uh, I'm not sure, that's not really something I'm into. But hey, it's better to ask forgiveness than permission, right?
