    Re: best large country

    Each one has it's pro's and cons. I'm assuming "big" is based on population and not land mass. Given other high population countries like China, Indonesia, India, Japan, etc I would still prefer to live in America. It's far far more affordable that other western nations and is very diverse. There are beaches, mountains, canyons, plains, even tundra if you like that (with Alaska). There are many unique and distinct cities and centers of culture like NYC, LA, Chicago, San Francisco, DC, Dallas, etc. The diversity can sometimes be a problem because I feel that each region has it's own spats and prejudices against the others, but overall I think it's a good thing and provides for numerous opportunities. With higher wages, lower cost of living, typically much more affordable housing and diverse regions I'd say America is the "best" large country, and not just because this is where I live.

    As far as "best" in best at all things, no country has claim to that.

    Canada may be much smaller by population, but overall I believe they have a better culture. If I didn't have to take a cut in wages I would strongly consider immigrating there as I do like the country and I'd still be close to home near my family.

    Let's see if we can find a solution. It's something that I think is, frankly, maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years.

    I'm guessing that the OP means large as in 'population,' not as in 'geography.'

    I think there is a lot to love about the US, but a few differences made me vote for Germany. I think they have better government, for one. I also think their people are generally happier because they lead a less stressful life. They are heavily taxed but the benefits far outweigh the lighter wallets.

    Don't be so sure - many Americans don't even know Canada exists, let alone where it is on a map - but then, DP members are generally a more knowledgeable group, so you're likely correct.

    I know, but Phys251 strikes me as a pretty sharp guy.
