Best Countries in the World


Within many country has been sovereign in this earth, i was courious which one was the best country off all of it. Maybe these selected countries was a bit elusive for many people, i was writing based on newsweek article plus my own word. The most important these measurement base on five criteria health, economic dynamism (the openness of a country’s economy and the breadth of its corporate sector), education, political environment, and quality of life.

1. Best EDUCATION
Low income: Ukraine
Middle income: Kazakhstan
Medium size: South Korea
Large size: Japan

Among low-income countries, Ukraine is the best for education, with a 99 percent literacy rate. When it comes to math and science, Kazakh students are earning high marks, too, and not just among middle-income countries; they outperformed the United States and many others in math on the 2007 TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study). South Koreans are also among the highest-performing students in science, and they’re the highest in reading among the world’s wealthy countries. It seems their educational success continues into adulthood, making South Koreans the most likely to have university degrees out of those in developed countries. Despite spending only about 3.5 percent of its GDP on education (the U.S. spends a little more than 5 percent), Japan still ranks best in education among large countries. Nonetheless, its top spot is at risk; after being criticized for its harsh academic atmosphere, Japan turned to a more relaxed curriculum, only to see its students’ performance slip in the past few years.

2. Best Health Care
Low income: Tunisia, China
Middle income: Chile
Small size: Switzerland
Medium size: Spain, Australia

Though you can’t count on Tunisia for education, it’s tied with China for the No. 1 spot on the health index among poor countries. Chile, which performs fairly well across the board, ranks No. 1 for health among middle-income countries, and Switzerland is the winner among small countries, beating out Sweden and the Netherlands. Spain and Australia share beautiful beaches and weather but also the title of healthiest medium-size countries.

3. Best Quality of Life
Low income: Ukraine
Middle income: Cuba
Medium size: Australia
Large size: Germany

Germany has the highest quality of life among large countries and ranks in the top 10 for quality of life among wealthy states. Two of its cities—Munich and Berlin—are often ranked among the most livable in the world. Australia, with its active citizens and high standard of living, comes in first among medium-size countries. In the low-income category, Ukraine comes out on top, and Cuba outdoes its fellow middle-income countries in quality of life. Cuba also ranks No. 3 in education among upper-middle-class countries.

4. Best Economic Dynamism
Low income: China
Middle income: Malaysia
Medium size: South Korea
Large size: United States

Though the United States beats out China for most economically dynamic large country, China ranks the highest in that category among low-income nations. And though Malaysia’s export-driven economy has recently become sluggish, it’s still the best out of all middle-income countries in this category. Among medium-size countries, South Korea has the strong corporate sector and open markets needed to claim the top spot.

5. Best Political Environment
Low income: Ghana
Middle income: Poland
Medium size: Australia
Large size: Germany

Though Ghana may not have a stellar economy, its political environment is the best among low-income countries like India, Albania, and Morocco. Poland wins in the middle-income category. Australia is a winner on many fronts, including its democratic freedom and voter participation, making it No. 1 in this category among medium-size nations. And Germany tops the list for large countries with the best political environment.
