The United Nations Development Program index was released yesterday. This table ranks 182 countries by life expectancy, literacy, school enrollment, and per capita GDP.
The top twenty countries, in order, were Norway, Australia, Iceland, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Japan, Luxembourg, Finland, the United States, Austria, Spain, Denmark, Belgium, Italy, Liechtenstein, and New Zealand.
The worst countries were, in order (starting with the worst): Niger, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Central African Republic, Mali, Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Chad, Burundi, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Guinea, Liberia, Gambia, Rwanda, Senegal, Eritrea, Zambia, and Ivory Coast.
If you noticed any correlations on this ranking, I'm sorry, but you're an evil person who's beyond redemption.
If, on the other hand, you didn't notice any correlations, and are tremendously offended by anyone who did, congratulations! You are a Good Liberal.
Then again, you probably already knew that.
