For example, I'd rather live in Japan than in the US, and one of the many reasons is that the US society has very deep fundamentalist Christian roots and it does cause alot of problems. In Japan, there is no prevalence of Christianity or fundamentalism. Well over the majority don't even seriously have a religion as much as they have a culture with simple traditions. So it's not even secular, they just have a series of traditions and superstitions from multiple religions.




Agree. I know every place has it's problems, but I'd like to live in a place where people were kinder and more light-hearted(than America anyway). What you believe and how you live is such an important part of life in America, no matter what you do you'll end up rubbing someone the wrong way.

Well, that's good. Knowing there's a figure of Japanese in Canada. Then Canada doesn't have racist sentiment towards Asian people, I assume?

Nope, there are just a lot of Asians pretend to be victims of their own society.

I have a craving for some chewing gum. That, and the Singaporean immigration laws have very strict process which is hard to pass. However it's pretty nice when I visited there 10 years ago.

Iraq! Though because of some unfortunate circumstances, it's pretty impossible for me to be allowed to go there.

I wonder what the "Society" rankings were based on. Friendliness? Racism? I want to visit some of these places, but don't want to go to a place where people are mean. I don't believe the U.S. Society being a D though. In my state people are generally nice.

Canada's innovation: D.

Damn you Harper.

Also, (unconfirmed) fun fact about Canada: Quebecois French (Canadian French) is essentially French from ~200 years ago/ when the French first colonized Canada. Often, I hear that people from Quebec tend to give up and speak English when in France, since it's so much different there.

Also, for those who want to live in Japan without any serious reasoning, there are some reasons not to do so in the long term, especially if you're not the majority:

1. If you are any Asian but Japanese, you will be treated quite badly, to say the least. Your pay will suck, and racism is still an issue. This is a country where the locals will say that they're not racist because they tolerate black people, but the next minute will say to lock their doors because there's a Chinese person in the neighbourhood.

2. Suicide rates. One of the highest in the world. Stress rates are up there too, and a connection between the two is not surprising.

Believe it or not, that's not their only problems.

And as for the Japanese suicide rate, when you take a closer look at the age distribution since 1990's, you'll see a steady increase -and an underestimated future projection- of senior suicide rate from 29% to the most resent at 40%. This coming from a developed nation with the second largest economy, its fastest growing business export is quite ironically the voluntary purging of retired workforce. When that's all they ever seen themselves as; the once diligent workers who helped raised their nation out from the ashes of the Pacific War, are now seeing themselves as nothing but used up human waste.

For all their collective traditions of pride and honor worth, their individual dignity took a nosedive as soon as they presumed that their society had failed them. That's the ever growing trend of the Japanese senior prospect.
