Unveiling the Mystery of the Happiest Country in the World

For the seventh year in a row, Finland has been named the happiest country on earth. According to the World Happiness Report, established by the United Nations to promote sustainable development goals, Finnish citizens scored 7.7 out of 10 in a survey that ranked their life satisfaction.

Finnish government policies on education, healthcare and family support also contribute significantly to its citizens’ happiness levels. The Finnish education system is among the best globally and offers universal healthcare coverage. However, some believe that Finns’ love for saunas plays a crucial role in their contentment too.
