7. Finland

Last year’s rank: 7

Finland, at least according to the Legatum Institute, doesn’t draw its strength from its economy. In fact, according to the firm’s report, the Finnish economy’s strength is falling when compared to other nations, ranked ninth in 2010, then down to 15th last year and 16th this year. But Finland excels elsewhere. The counttry has the third-best culture for entrepreneurs in the world, according to Legatum, and is the third-safest nation on earth.
