Given the rising level of social discontent in China it may be hard to believe that the country made it to the top of the Gross National Happiness (GNH) index.
The explanation? The GNH ranking was established by North Korea. For sure the Hermit Kingdom knows how to chose its (rare) friends since all of them are at the top of the list, right behing China and North Korea (modestly ranked #2); Cuba comes third, Iran comes fourth and Venezuela comes fifth. Unsurprisingly, South Korea is ranked #152 and the USA ranks last at #203.
Who said that North Korea’s propaganda department didn’t have a sens of humour?
P.S.: No wonder some North Koreans are fleeing to China: they all want to go and live in the happiest country on earth.
