Where is the best place in the world to live? After Texas (obviously), you may want to try Canberra, the capital city of Australia. According to a recent report published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Australia, and in particular its capital, does very well on a test of nine measures of livability. Alan Flippen of the New York Times explains what that test assesses::

The nine measures were education, jobs, income (measured at purchasing power parity to correct for cost-of-living differences between countries), safety, health, environment, civic engagement, access to broadband and housing.

If you decide to move to Canberra as a result of this report, keep in mind that you will probably want to vacate eventually. In the Exosquad universe, that city will the site of a fierce and destructive battle in the year 2121. If your property in Canberra survives the Neosapien War, the value of it may decline significantly.
