image for Somalia Chosen as Country with Highest Quality of Life
A nice sunny paradise

The Bureau for the Observation of Life Official Quality Statistics (BOLOQS) have declared the top ten countries with the highest quality of life in 2011. Countries were rated on a number of different attributes, including latitude, number of vowels in the country's name, and bribability of the country's leader (if you can bribe the president he can give you an excellent quality of life).

Unsurprisingly, Somalia has won again, largely because of its development potential. As a completely undeveloped backward nation, there is a huge potential for businesses to go in there and create jobs.

Libya came a close second place, partly thanks to its high temperatures. The hottest outdoor temperature ever recorded was 57.8 °C (136.0 °F) in the Libyan desert. Phew, wouldn't make for a lovely warm summer's day.

The UAE was third, and scored extra points for containing more desalination plants than any other country.

The UK did not appear on the list at all. Clearly Britons are slowly coming to terms with the fact that they live in one of the worst countries on Earth, as emigration is on the rise again.

The top 10 list of countries with the best quality of life are:

1. Somalia
2. Libya
3. UAE
4. Rwanda
5. Antarctica
6. Congo
7. Chechnya
8. Haiti
9. Italy
10. North Korea
