It is every man's desire to live in a country that is prosperous and fends well. So it will be interesting to know which are the best countries in the world to live in. In a survey of 100 countries by Newsweek magazine, Finland is the best nation in the world.


India ranked way behind at 78th position. Even small countries like Singapore (rank 20), Malaysia (rank 37) and Sri Lanka (rank 66) fared better than us.


In terms of innovation, India scores 3.73. In ease of doing business, India is at an utterly poor 133rd position: it takes 30 days to start a new business in India.
