Finland has been named the happiest country in the world for the sixth consecutive year. This is reported by TASS with reference to the World Happiness Report, prepared by a group of experts commissioned by the United Nations (UN).
When developing a document, experts pay attention to the key components: income of the population, health, social support, level of freedom, generosity and the absence of corruption. In 2023, Finland is way ahead of its rivals. In addition to her, the list includes Denmark, Iceland, Israel and the Netherlands.
The top ten also included Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Luxembourg and New Zealand. Russia finished only in 70th position and Ukraine in 93rd place. At the same time, Afghanistan (137th place) and Lebanon (136th place) are recognized as the most unlucky countries in the world.
