More than 20,000 individuals in 36 countries identified as informed elites, business leaders, and members of the public were surveyed online by US News and World Report in collaboration with BAV Group and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Survey participants were asked to assess a set of attributes to 80 countries. Based on the responses, those traits were further grouped into nine sub-categories such as quality of life and entrepreneurship.

I just looked up Swaziland in Wikipedia and it appears the country has been renamed Appletini.

Autocorrect?

An Appletini meanwhile is a cocktail.

So Japan is #2 this year, behind the Swiss. Up from #5 the previous year. I don't think all that much has really changed here, but I wonder if there is any real basis other than that was the mood that people were in this year when they asked them. :notsure:

It would be interesting to compute a "racial diversity index" and compare it to the rankings. I suspect that what we are seeing here is that people are basically tribal.

Haiti is pretty racially homogeneous, isn't it?

In March 1811, President Henry Christophe surprised everyone when he anointed himself King Henry I and renamed the northern republic, the Kingdom of Hayti. Henry I soon had a full court of nobles that included dukes, barons, counts and knights to rival that of royal England.
