Turns out it’s Denmark, or at least according to the UN General Assembly’s annual “Happiness Report.”
The report notes that the other happiest places on Earth include Norway, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Very happy times in Northern Europe, really.
The most miserable places on Earth, unsurprisingly, include much of Africa, with the smallish country of Togo being the absolute unhappiest place on the entire planet. (The country was colonized by notable fun country Germany and became part of the slave coast — and has seen through the years dictators, civilian murders and rapes, and political upheaval.)
