Interzone / The Happiest Place on Earth
« on: April 13, 2012, 06:02:19 PM »
Bhutan is often referred to as the world's happiest country...

...despite relatively low life expectancy, a literacy rate of just 47%, and a very low GDP per capita. Why? Researchers credit an unusually strong sense of national identity. Plus, the country has beautiful scenery and a largely unspoiled culture, thanks to strict governmental limits on tourism, development, and immigration. Pretty counterintuitive, but Bhutan seems to have found a recipe for happiness.
