I pretty biased having not lived in Canada. But you know, I think I would fit in well there.

I give every country five stars. High fives all around.

3/5. Canada's rough around the edges, but it's fairly decent in some spots. Too conservative. And let, too liberal sometimes. Not enough of an identity.

I'm also French and American so...

France: 4/5: Politically retarded, but can't ignore awesome cultural contributions, and the food. Pretty crazy history as well.

America: 3.5/5: There's a lot about america that I love, it's vast and diverse. I love it's big cities. But since it's basically No. 1, it's not above abusing it's power sometimes. Sure France did it too, but this stuff's more recent.

4 stars for Singapore! Great food, safe country just too expensive and humid!

Oh man, that sucks. I'm not good enough for Canada.

4 stars for Australia.
 
Pros:
Free health care, 4 weeks of paid annual leave a year due to the government, great beer and just an awesome place to be. (oh and our $ being worth way more than the Yank $ for a change)
 
Cons: Pollitics it too much to the right for my liking and we don't have an R rating on games and thus banningsome games such as Mortal Kombat.

5 stars for Denmark, but now when I think about it I should have voted 4, seing that some political parties have a bit more control than they should have and it's seriously starting to harm not only ourselves but also our relationship with other countries.

Also it doesn't help that a certain party, which is so extreme and straight out dumb in their opinions that they make Sarah Palin look like a sane person, is constantly walking on the edge of the UN law, and overstepping it at times, but they don't give a shit, regarding the way they tread foreigners.

Actually when I think about it I should have voted 3 stars. We're still free to do and say what we want, for now but who knows with the government we have, if they will keep their position after the next election we are truly fucked. We need political change in Denmark before I'm going to give more than 3 stars.

Canada - 4/5: Culturally solid, if politically weird. I like it here. England - 2/5: Falling apart at the seams. I can't live here.
This. But the other way round, for other reasons.
#67 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2351 posts) -

A good 4 stars for Australia IMO. Now if only we had better internet and a proper R18+ for games then it would be deserving of 5 stars but in a few years it could be very possible.

#68 Posted by ESREVER (2793 posts) -

The lack of a 50 stars option is disappointing...

#69 Posted by NakAttack (1329 posts) -

It's July 4th, it's a poll about rating your country, and it's USA's birthday. How is it that no one posted this before me.  

#70 Posted by Pyrgz (257 posts) -

institutionalized racism against indigenous peoples and asylum seekers

economy based almost entirely on raw materials industries

powered almost entirely by fossil fuels

public sector being slowly dismantled

so uh

like 2 stars i guess for australia

#71 Posted by Toms115 (2324 posts) -

the united kingdom is a mixture of great places to live, and really shitty places to live. unfortunately, i live in the middle of nowhere. also: quite a few racist assholes/assholes in general.

#72 Posted by Da_Madness (80 posts) -
@Pyrgz: You're not in the NSW public sector are you? I hear that the state government is really screwing you guys over.
#74 Posted by Gav47 (1583 posts) -

2 Stars for Ireland cause I have a degree in engineering and still can't get a fucking job T_T

#75 Posted by dagas (3050 posts) -

I give Sweden 4 stars. The thing that is preventing 5 stars is the climate and the not so friendly people.

Overall though it's a pretty great country. Barely no natural disasters, not as many poor people as in the US, cheap and fast internet, an abundance of fresh water lakes which means we have some of the best tap water on the planet, low crime rate compared to the US and more.

#79 Posted by JJWeatherman (14789 posts) -

'Merica!

...4 stars.

#80 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5094 posts) -

5 for America.  I'm biased because I haven't actually left the country (kind of sad that I haven't been to Canada, I live in fucking Washington) but I like it here. 
#81 Posted by oatz (1109 posts) -

5 stars for Sweden.

#82 Posted by Solemn (288 posts) -

I gave my nation the amazing rating of TWO STARS.

#83 Posted by Vexxan (4624 posts) -

4 stars for Sweden.

#84 Posted by jkuc316 (1002 posts) -

I'm trying to not be biased, so 3 stars for the Philippines. Awesome people, food and beautiful vacation spots are here, but so are shitty gov't, homelessness, and a bunch of other problems.

#85 Edited by imsh_pl (3445 posts) -

4 stars for Poland. Pretty poor government health care and you seem to wait for everything way longer than you should (mail packages, for example).

#86 Posted by Yanngc33 (4551 posts) -

3 stars for France. There are way worst places to live and we have a badass healthcare but seeing how going on strike is the national past time, things can go real slow and most of society lives in the past (we will never NEVER work on a Sunday)

#87 Posted by cosi83 (471 posts) -

3 star for England 
 
I need to get out of this place....

Having The Witcher on a gaming site gives you 5 stars in my book. But I understand.

#89 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7779 posts) -

Not sure to be honest. I just voted 5 stars randomly though! :D

#90 Edited by Fjordson (2553 posts) -

I'll give a solid 4 stars to my native England. 
 
And a 4.5 for good ol' USA, where I've lived for the past 7 years. I love being here.

#91 Posted by BrockSampson (317 posts) -

3 stars for my beloved states. We started wonderful. But over the last several decades have been moving ever towards a dangerous and most disappointing path.

#92 Posted by JammyJesus (771 posts) -

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy where I live, but we need a fuck tonne of work doing. UK: 3/5

In a written review, would it be closer to 4 stars or a little lower. Maybe pushing the low 3. Just curious.

#94 Posted by Skald (4381 posts) -

Hell yeah, Canada. People who know what I'm talking about totally know what I'm talking about.

#95 Posted by PenguinDust (12727 posts) -

4 Stars.  Better than most (192 members to the U.N.), but still in need of some improvement.  That means there's something for current and future generations to strive for. 

#96 Posted by phrosnite (3509 posts) -

3 Stars for Bulgaria...

#97 Posted by Thiemen (61 posts) -

4 stars for The Netherlands. Everything is very well organised and almost everyone (including me) is fairly wealthy. The only things I dislike is the weather and the landscape. 

#98 Posted by Swoxx (3015 posts) -

A solid 4 stars for Sweden from me. It's pretty great. But some stuff could use improvement

#99 Posted by Gamer_152 (14278 posts) -

England. I'm stuck between three and four stars but I'll be generous and opt for four. We have some very serious issues as a society which I don't see being tackled any time soon, but after seeing a documentary last night set in Africa I'm glad I live in a country which preaches equality, freedom, and can provide me with not only food, water and shelter but also the kind of first world luxuries most people will never even know exist.

Sweden is probably the safest place to live. Maybe not the most FUN, but when I don't ever worry, really about anything. That doesn't matter.
