Greatest percentage of obese people? America. Good job.That cell phone in your pocket? Guess who invented it? America. You're welcome, world.
Also it depends on whether or not you see the EU as an economic union because the EU generates plenty of money too.
Personally I can not say whether or not the US is the greatest country or not. It is one of the greatest country outside my own country but cannot be proved in the list you have stated above here. It is a feeling and it is no more than reasonable that every person in the US should feel the US the greatest country on the planet.
People from other countries would see it very different. That is decided on more than just facts and figures.

BLADE BABE STRIKES AGAIN!!!
The reaosn why America has a lot of innovation is because of immigration.
We attract bright people from all around the world due to our freedoms and such.
That is why I get scared when I see xenophobes.
America is the greatest nation on Earth because no other nation attracts masses to immigrate like America.
Our biggest asset is immigration. It's time for us to realize that and quit the xenophobic BS.
Einstein was an immigrant, Steve Job's father I believe was an immigrant, and countless other billionaires/inventors/rulers were immigrants or children of immigrants. No other nation in the world has that.
So, I say America is the greatest nation in the world because she attracts people, people want to immigrate here. The second that stops, we die.
