Re: The Happiest Place on Earth (Switzerland No.2)

It seems like the people generally are more depressed in cold countries and suicide rate is higher...

Now I hear that Switzerland is ranked as the second nation in the world. It's great, it must be combination of wealth distribution, lifestyle and for some even weather (whoever does skiing or snowboarding)...

If I think that in South Africa people weather wise should be the happiest nation in entire world with one of the best climates ever. However, due to inequity and declining economy it gets worst to keep the mood upbeat.

It is amazing that for instance, in cold and economically stable countries suicide rate is high. Whereas in South Africa with warm climate people fall victim of violent crime instead, without reason for commiting suicide...
