As the 2007 UN Human Development Index rates Iceland as #1, you can’t leave out this pioneering country. In 1944, it separated from Denmark and became a representative democracy. More than 30,000 of the 313,000 total population were born abroad, and there has been a recent surge of immigrants because of a labor shortage. While Icelandic is the spoken language, English is widely used.
It ranks next to Andorra with a life expectancy of 82 years. Their GDP/capita of $63,000 puts it at #4 (U.S. is #9) by the IMF. It is a welfare state with high taxes. There is no standing army, but they participated in the Afghan War. While by my standards it is cold, even if it is just south of the Arctic Circle, the weather is surprisingly temperate because of the Gulf Stream.
