7. Netherlands

A culture steeped in history, with an emphasis on great art, cuisine and social consciousness, the Netherlands is a perpetual presence in the Happiness Report’s top 10. Though down a few spots this year, an emphasis on quality of life (people in the Netherlands work 1,381 hours a year, less than the OECD average of 1,765 hours) assures the country’s buoyancy for years to come.
