    Hm, so once again some (anonymous)psychopaths(the media is infested with them worldwide) have issued their ‘ranking,’ whose main function is to lift the ego and self-complacency of some nations, and to put down, embarass and ridicule others? If anybody believes that the ranking accurately reflects the real state of things,one is tempted to tell the person: Be careful! Isn’t it only the media hacks attempting to manipulate your mind for their own political benefits,and out of their own ethnic and nationalist phobias, likes, and hatreds? It’s just the hacks, who really aren’t any better informed than you and me! Remember that cunning pathological liars use the principle: Tell two truths, and then tell one lie; as a result, the lie will pass as truth. Even if one nation has been wrongly ‘ranked’ by the psychopaths, the whole ‘ranking’ should be considered worthless, isn’t it? :)
