Re: Best country in the world 2020

They are all subjective. Remember that survey that showed a whole load of the happiest countries in the world are in poorer parts of South America? It all depends on what you count as important.

China is number 15! Wow, I read last week that if you earn over £600 a YEAR you are not classed as living in poverty.

Just read the article. Reads like a 2nd grade primer. Surely some of their readers are adults?

Re: Best country in the world 2020

I can't take seriously any ranking that places Egypt above the Czech Republic. There's literally nothing in which Egypt leads the Czechs today. Btw, I'm not Czech.

They make great chocolates, especially the pharaoh roche.

Although, you have to buy a stack of ten boxes at a time. It's a pyramid scheme.
