And the World’s Happiest Country for 2017 Is…

Things are coming up roses for this nation.

According to the United Nation’s World Happiness Report, Norway is the happiest country in the world. It’s another feather in the Scandinavian nation’s cap — it was recently named the best country in the world in a survey.

“The rankings are based on six factors — per capita gross domestic product, healthy life expectancy, freedom, generosity, social support and absence of corruption in government or business,” reports Reuters.

Norway jumped three spots and knocked Denmark, which has three of the four times the report has come out, from the perch.

World’s 10 Happiest Countries

  1. Norway
  2. Denmark
  3. Iceland
  4. Switzerland
  5. Finland
  6. Netherlands
  7. Canada
  8. New Zealand
  9. Australia
  10. Sweden

If you have a keen eye, you’ll no doubt notice the U.S. is nowhere to be found in the top. It finished in 14th place (which means Hawaii truly is the place to be). And while there is certainly some debate about whether America is indeed great or if it needs to be made great again, take heart because it is far from the unhappiest. That honor falls to the Central African Republic, followed by Burundi, Tanzania, Syria and Rwanda.
