I don't see how Australia is not in the top 5 longest Coastline. Wikipedia use both the world factbook and The World ressources institute. According to The world institute(and common sence) Australia has a much longer coast line than Japan. And also, I know Greenland is not part of mainland Denmark, but it's still part of the country, I think this should count.
+1
level 60
Jun 27, 2015
My point exactly! I think it should be third.
+1
level 53
Jan 9, 2017
Australia has a shorter coastline due to the fact that Japan has many separate islands, and the coasts are very winding and complicated, which drastically increases the coastline. Greenland isn't counted because it's an overseas territory, not an integral part of Denmark.

I'm in Norway right now and damn right it's expensive. Holy lutfisk. $75-90 for a bed in a hostel dorm room?? Are you nuts???? When I was in Odessa I was paying 1/3 that for a high-rise condo with floor-to-ceiling windows right on the beach overlooking the Black Sea and free garage parking. Cost of living, CLIMATE, and the dating scene are all SO important to quality of life I will *never* understand those lists that rank Scandinavia at or near the top. I could give a flying rat's patoot about low infant mortality rates or how many bike paths there are interrupting the flow of traffic downtown.

I find it a bit disturbing that you rank dating scene over infant mortality rates. So you think countries should invest more time and money into singles bars than better healthcare for expectant mothers and infants? Perhaps if you are ever successful enough in the dating scene to find someone with whom you'd like to start a family, you might change your priorities. (At least I can hope.)
+1

Sep 12, 2017
I find it a bit disturbing that people always assume that having children ought to be a priority for everyone.
+1
level 74
Sep 12, 2017
Also, on these lists that I'm referencing, the differences in infant mortality that separate out winners from losers is often just a percent or two. Sometimes a fraction of a percent. For example the "under 5" mortality rate in Finland is 2.3. Among the lowest in the world. (and Norway's is 2.6) However, in Estonia it is only 2.9. In the Czech Republic it's 3.4. In Greece it's only 4.6. It's a pretty small difference. And of course to anyone who has the presence of mind to not be actively reproducing themselves those numbers will affect their quality of life precisely nil.

Anyway the point was 1. Norway is damned expensive. 2. This negatively impacts my quality of life there far more than a 1% greater chance that the kids I will never have might die.

If you *were* going to spend time contributing to the overpopulation of the planet, yes, I could see how this would be something you'd want to consider. But... aren't you a grandmother? I'd think that this wouldn't be high on your list of priorities, either. And that was also part of the point, that these lists have a very narrow focus and don't apply to most people. If you are a young 20-something fertile couple, educated, well-to-do, actively part of the work force and looking to start a family, the common critieria on these lists applies somewhat. But... for single travelers? Retired grandmothers? Anti-natalists? People with seasonal affective disorder? Not so much. And... if you have a fixed income or no income the cost of living is such a huge factor but doesn't usually factor in these lists. Lower infant mortality rate doesn't matter so much if you are forced to live in effective poverty.
+1
level 74
Sep 12, 2017
and, finally, yes, dating IS important. So sick of judgmental sex-negative people always saying such condescending things toward anyone who would prioritize this. As if it's frivolous or immoral. It makes an enormous difference in your quality of life if you can regularly find physical affection, whether people are comfortable admitting that this is something we are biologically hard-wired to need or not.

Very nice quiz! Some slight surprises: with life expectancy I expected more nordic and less asian countries. And Namibia and Suriname I didnt immediately expect on lowest density. On highest density Netherlands wouldnt have seem out of place. You allways hear that.

And maybe most volcanoes in russia (but allready learned that from the site) and highest income per capita for Singapore.

the ones listed above arent the ones I got wrong, but the ones that you'd least expect in those list. (I at least)
