Once again, for the third consecutive year, Australia is ranked the happiest nation in the developed world and it's based on measurements of income levels, health, safety and housing, according to an article from BBC news.

Personally, I think it's because they have aussome creatures like Kangaroos and Koalas. :-D

But where, you ask, is the United States on this list?

It's at number 6, even with the fact that red and blue states would each like the other to be a part of some other country, preferably on another planet, and unemployment and healthcare troubles,among others, dominate our daily news and cause us to generally behave with less patience than Ted Nugent at a PETA convention.

Here are the 10 Happiest Countries in the World:

1. Australia
2. Sweden
3. Canada
4. Norway
5. Switzerland
6. United States
7. Denmark
8. The Netherlands
9. Iceland
10. United Kingdom
