Yup, Norway has the highest standard of living in the world, according to the UN in it's human development index.
That other communist country in Europe, Sweden, comes in at number 2 ... thus proving that a 'socialist' society fails its citizens; in this case by ensuring a long, healthy, happy life with low crime, lots to do, loads of money and a clean environment.
Oh, and really long holidays in which to contemplate how terrible life is in 'socialist' countries.
America (huge economy, big army, 'American dream' and all that) comes in at number 8.
That'll show those commies, eh?
