Normally I am weary of these kinds of ranking lists, but you have to be happy for the happiness of others.

Finland is the happiest country in the world for the fifth straight year, the World Happiness Report announced Thursday. The list, compiled by UNICEF, showed Finland at No. 1 in 2022, followed by Denmark and Iceland. The list is out of 149 countries and is based on people’s own opinions of their country, along with data regarding the economics and general state of a nation.
