United States Ranking in the World

At worldbank.org, I checked out a map.

The United States ranks low on “Political Stability”, but ranks high on most other indicators.  There are, however, a few countries that rank high on all indicators.  I heard one person argue on a forum that they thought this was because these countries were socially liberal, but it could also be connected to their being more Northern countries.

On “Voice and Accountability”, the countries that had higher ranking than the United States:

  • Canada
  • Greenland
  • Iceland
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Ireland
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Netherlands
  • Belgium
  • Germany
  • Switzerland
  • Austria
  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • Finland

The countries that had equal ranking with the United States:

  • Costa Rica
  • Chile
  • Uruguay
  • Japan
  • Portugal
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Hungary
  • Slovakia
  • Czech Republic
  • Estonia
