Nordic countries are also known for low levels of income inequality, but it is not clear that income inequality is a possible explanation for the high welfare of Nordic citizens.

However, the Nordic countries occupy the world's leading positions in terms of public support and are all in the top ten in terms of freedom. The Nordic countries are often used as examples of good governance inequality, education, sustainability, and economic policy, which consistently prioritize the quality of life. Their high level of income equality and social status are cited as reasons for their continued prosperity. Understandably, this is not the only reason for their success in providing citizens with the highest standard of living.

In the 1980s and 1990s, countries such as China and South Korea drew attention to their industrial policies aimed at supporting capacity building through the creation of national manufacturing and technology leaders such as Samsung. And historically, countries like the United States are looking to Scandinavia to find inspiration on how to build an equitable state with strong social policies because this can lead to happier citizens. The Scandinavian model has attracted a lot of international attention.

Many people wonder if it provides an example in small countries where citizens are equal in terms of ideology and experience but live in poverty or oppression because of the policies of the Marxist government. Some argue that this is an example of the pervasive capitalism that has led to income inequality and the sharp decline in living standards between rich and poor in rich countries. Many people in the countries working in the so-called "American model" of the capitalist business see the Scandinavian model as attractive.

The highest rate of the world's happiest countries also tends to focus on universal health care, longer paid vacation periods, and affordable child care. A key point of happiness research is that a rich country does not always have a very happy country.

It is not clear whether one person should make a list of the happiest countries in the world. The annual rate of the Global Happiness Report is based on data from a key Gallup World Survey questionnaire. In it, respondents were asked to rate their current lives on a scale of 0 to 10, where 10 is the best life for them and 0 is the worst life.

This Top 10 countries this year ranged from 7,268 Austrians to 7,842 Finns at the top, while these results are based entirely on personal experience, factors that contribute to the improvement of living standards in all countries including gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, strong social support programs among friends and family, the expectations of a healthy lifestyle, freedom of choice in government and business, and generosity when it comes to charities.

The report on global happiness is a country that focuses more on economic growth with happiness than on flight, smiling happily. “Happiness” is not a proper term to describe the feelings of the Finnish people around the world. The United Nations became interested in the speculative scale of human life 10 years ago, after the then Prime Minister of Bhutan, Jigme Tinley, called on member states to combine better welfare into indicators of social and economic development.

It is difficult to measure happiness, but the United Nations has tried to find it. The World Happiness Report 2017 is a global happiness story and each year the World Happiness Index surveys many people around the world to determine, as the name implies, which country has the happiest people.

In the year of the premature death of coronavirus, recession, and social loneliness The World Happiness Report shows that on March 19, 2021, the Nordic countries exceeded the index - leading Finland.

The Scandinavian country has surpassed Switzerland as the world's most exciting country according to the 2016 World Happiness Report Update, released by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network on Wednesday in Rome. The world is often told that the Scandinavian countries are one of the best places to live: Finland, which was at the top of the table last year, is back in the first place, followed by Denmark, Norway (starting in 2017), and Iceland.

The authors of the report emphasize that it is not just a matter of money, although the top ten include rich countries - other Scandinavian countries, including Denmark and Sweden are also high on the list. The only non-European country in the top ten in New Zealand.

This means that the levels of happiness of many people in the Nordic countries and countries such as the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Switzerland are often closer together than in other parts of the world.
