UN says Norway still best place to live

While I have no desire to move to Norway, they seem to be doing fairly well.

It's also interesting to note that the US comes in fourth in most rankings the UN study lists (pdf). That's much better than past results where the US didn't even make the top ten.

Curiously, while Norway may be a wonderful place to live (though I've one Norwegian friend who has made it very clear he has no desire to return), many immigrants appear to be giving up on the country. I'm hearing things like this more and more about the Nordic countries: they're fantastic places to live, if you're Nordic.

I'd love to hear comments on this from Norwegians (I know some of you read this blog).
