All of the other countries in the top ten also have high values in all six of the key variables used to explain happiness differences among countries and through time – income, healthy life expectancy, having someone to count on in times of trouble, generosity, freedom and trust, with the latter measured by the absence of corruption in business and government. Here too there has been some shuffling of ranks among closely grouped countries, with this year’s rankings placing Finland in 5thplace, followed by the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia and Sweden tied for the 9th position, having the same 2014-2016 score to three decimals.

This year’s report emphasizes the importance of the social foundations of happiness (see Chapter 2 ). This can be seen by comparing the life experiences between the top and bottom ten countries in this year’s happiness rankings. There is a four-point happiness gap between the two groups of countries, of which three-quarters is explained by the six variables, half due to differences in having someone to count on, generosity, a sense of freedom, and freedom from corruption. The other half of the explained difference is attributed to GDP per capita and healthy life expectancy, both of which, as the report explains, also depend importantly on the social context.

However 80% of the variance of happiness across the world occurs within countries. In richer countries the within-country differences are not mainly explained by income inequality, but by differences in mental health, physical health and personal relationships: the biggest single source of misery is mental illness (see Chapter 5 ). Income differences matter more in poorer countries, but even their mental illness is a major source of misery.

“ The World According to X ” (a.k.a “ How X Sees the World ” or “ The X World ”) is a series of world map satires that are labeled with various geopolitical stereotypes and jokes to reflect the biased worldview of country X. These maps are often poorly drawn and may omit particular countries for the purpose of political commentaries.

An early example of satirical world maps can be found on the cover of March 1976 issue of The New Yorker magazine, illustrated by American cartoonist Saul Steinberg.

David Horsey, a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, had created a similar map titled “The World According to Ronald Reagan” in 1982 for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. ‘dr Tricky’ says that he was not aware of David Horsey’s work.
