Somalia only scores high in dystopia (seemingly the highest score in the world). They're basically too retarded to know better, so they unironically think they're the happiest people in the world whilst living in a war-torn shithole, dying of hunger/diseases at 25.

>"Norway moves to the top of the ranking despite weaker oil prices. It is sometimes said that Norway achieves and maintains its high happiness not because of its oil wealth, but in spite of it. By choosing to produce its oil slowly, and investing the proceeds for the future rather than spending them in the present, Norway has insulated itself from the boom and bust cycle of many other resource-rich economies. To do this successfully requires high levels of mutual trust, shared purpose, generosity and good governance, all factors that help to keep Norway and other top countries where they are in the happiness rankings."

I wonder how can people in Iceland be happy. I live in a city of about the same population of Iceland. I'm tired of alway seeing the same people. Always spotting the same girls when I go out. Always walking for the same streets.
But in their case is much worse, because for example last weekend I went to Madrid with my friends for a concert, and the weekend before I went to Valencia for chickpicking. But Icelanders can't do shit. They are in the middle of nowhere, and a tiny population with, I guess, few entertainment offer, a shitty climate and with everything expensive from food to travelling.
I don't know, I guess they are hapy because they're alive but nothing else...

Yes, most of them never had a proper civilization, unlike Greece, Spain, Portugal, Egypt, Iraq, China, Mesoamerica, Peru... in the 200,000 years of human history.

Scandis all sound and act depressed as fuck. I think they don't know what happiness means so they mistake it with satisfaction
>>
>>72527143
I dunno, you said "white is the only thing that matters" but the self-reported rankings put Israel and many Latin American countries above quite a few 'white' countries

which seems to point towards other factors, that weren't even captured by the analysis i.e. the grey bar, being important too

this constant baiting gets boring

the chapter dedicated to the USA is very interesting too, by the way. a significant drop that you can't really ascribe to any significant demographic change in those 7 years

bit reductive but loss of trust in institutions and each other is a factor as the report makes clear too (perceived less personal freedom, perceived more corruption, less social support etc). increase in inequality is another, despite overall increase in GDP per capita
>>
>And the prescriptions for faster growth—mainly deregulation and tax cuts—are likely to exacerbate, not reduce social tensions. Almost surely, further tax cuts will increase inequality, social tensions, and the social and economic divide between those with a college degree and those without.

uh oh. this report is biased against libertarianism :^)

Hungary and Korea have some of the world's highest suicide rates, so I don't see how a lower consumption is good in their case. Most prosperous nations seem to be hovering around 40-90, with two exceptions.

Our beaches are fairly cold and violent, Algarve aside. Alentejo is also neat, but not to be touched or exploited. Same as the Azores. Most of the coast line (islands included) is either pic related or very serene NZ-green-type. Either way, they're not really party-beaches, for the most part.

But memes aside, we are quite stoic and sardonic folk, which definitely shows in out culture, and is very evident in contrast with Spain. Our fairly monotone and closed-sounding language also helps set the mood. Being rich wouldn't fix it, as I know people who went abroad and did fairly well, but they are usually fairly quiet and autistic as the rest of us.

This isn't to say we're better or worse, just that we're different, I guess.
>>
>>72544025
Are you really such shitty people like Finns?
>>
>>72544172
Not really. We're not anti-social like them, and from what I've gathered we're fairly open and nice to visitors that show interest. And we hang out on bars and pubs and whatnot, it's just that we never get too giddy or excited for things. We're fairly sardonic and cynic towards stuff.

Plus, Finland seems to be very happy, so they are just pretending. I think it may be related to the fact that they are introverts that get to stay at home because the state pays for it, whereas we're introverts that are forced to go out and actually talk to people because the weather is nice and the houses are cold.

We're similar to the stereotypical wingy Brit, but instead of the weather we complain about the economy or new annoying stuff du jour. We do that thing of greeting people with an "allright?" and it's standard to answer with a "more or less" when asked how we're doing.

Maybe we're just weird.
