Of course Iceland is #1. They need people to bring in money since they've been broke since 08 but, Yemen at #18, really. Give me a break?

Maybe they consider allowing any Islamic terrorists that wants to set up shop in their country an aspect of promoting economic growth and being friendly but, I and probably the American State Dept view it a little differently. :D

Besides who in their right fekin mind would want to holiday in Yemen? :roll:

When I saw Yemen I thought of him too. :lol:

In that episode of Friends, Chandler's excuse for breaking up with the annoying girlfriend, Janice, was to claim his company was transferring him there.

I've been to 11 of the places on the map. Of those 11, they're mostly in correct order, except Portugal is the most unfriendly country I've visited. :evil:

Austria at #5 ?

Ok, I call BS on the whole thing.


And as far as Morocco at 3, Macedonia at 4, yes they say 'welome welcome',
as they put their hands into your pockets. :)

Ok I'll bite.

How does one measure happiness? Is there some kind of smile o meter or do we simply judge it by how it treats tourists.

We do know one thing. If Yemen is on the list the alcohol must play a factor in friendliness.

Really? A friend of mine and her husband were just there recently for a 3 week vacation and came back and announced they'd like to move there permanently 8O. I'm thinking the "vacation high" will wear off though. They were also impressed with Morocco...

I kind of wondered that too.

A couple of links that deal with the methodology and interpretation:

Copying Unsound's little game;


"Burkino Faso? Disputed zone? Who called all these weird places?"

+5 for knowing the show, which character said it and the episode in which that phrase was uttered.

The Simpsons, Homer Simpson, Bart vs Australia.

Amazing what you can find on Google.

Never mind the +5. I would have never known this otherwise! :D

I've been to New Zealand and I live in Canada. I'd have to say comparatively they're near the same for friendliness. Granted I didn't talk to everyone in the country but I think the bottom line is there's mean people everywhere. There's nice people everywhere.
