North Korea may be one of the happiest places on Earth… according to a study by North Korea. Guess who is last? That’s right, the "American Empire." However you know the study was fair and balanced since they didn't rank themselves first on the list. They gave the title of Worlds Happiest Place on Earth to China.
Korea's Chosun Central Television recently came out with a happiness index compiled by local researchers. Their findings? China is the happiest place on the planet, earning 100 points (a perfect score!). At number two is none other than North Korea itself. Cuba, Iran and Venezuela (in that order) round out the top five.
People living a third-world existence may be too ignorant of what could be, to dare to dream about anything more, so they settle for what they have. Also, they're too afraid to show their unhappiness.
