The Happiest Country in the World examines several aspects of Finnish life to see why Finland has been at the top of the UN’s World Happiness Report for 7 years in a row. For 7 years in a row, The Report, which since 2002 has tabulated the relative happiness of people in all countries, analyzes factors such gross domestic product per capita, social support, life expectancy, freedom to make one’s own life choices, generosity, and perceptions of the level of corruption in society. Documentary host, Nina Trasoff, explores their schools, government, prisons, nature, saunas, and culture to see how we might bring a little bit of Finnish happiness into our own lives.
