4. Australia

Last year’s rank: 3

Of course, it must be something in the water. The only education system that is stronger than Australia’s is neighbour New Zealand’s. The Aussies, though, are no one-trick pony. The country also boasts the third-strongest sense of personal freedom among its citizens, and has a health care system ranked similarly to that of Canada (Australia came in 17th place while Canada reached 15th place).
