    The question, which seems unanswerable in any rational manner, is: Why does the richest country have more than 41 million living in extreme poverty? A journey through a land of extreme poverty: welcome to America This reality doesn't make America the ****tiest nation in the world but it must be acknowledged that there are places in the country which would not reduce any other nation's ****-hole ranking and might even cause that other place to rise toward the #1 position.

    Is this just another excuse for an "I hate America." thread or is it a serious question??

    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    One doesn't need to "hate" America to see that the nation has problems but for the majority of the residents, it ain't so bad.

    > GNI per capita: $39,568
    > Life expectancy at birth: 80.9 years
    > Pct. of pop. with at least some high school: 79.6%

    8. United States
    > Population: 322.6 million

    9. Canada

    > Life expectancy at birth: 82.0 years
    > Pct. of pop. with at least some high school: 99.9%

    rankings from The World's 25 Most Livable Countries
    To identify the most (and least) livable countries in the world, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed social and economic data covering 188 countries. All data was provided in the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Index, a report released annually for the past 25 years. Life expectancy at birth is provided by the UN Population Division in the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA); mean years of schooling are based on UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) educational attainment data and, for some countries, Barro and Lee (2013) methodology where UIS data are not available; expected years of schooling is provided by UIS; and GNI per capita (in 2011 $PPP) by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. For several countries, mean years of schooling is estimated from nationally representative household surveys and for some countries GNI was obtained from the UN Statistical Division’s database – National Accounts Main Aggregates Database.
