Cultural Map of the World

The Inglehart-Welzel Cultural Map of the World, constructed by sociopolitical scientists Ronald Inglehart and Christian Welzel based on the World Values Surveyhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Value_(personal_and_cultural)

"Birds of a feather flock together."

Examine yourself. Set aside your present geographical location, your friends and family, and any financial boundaries for the moment. Examine your values. What really matters to you? If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose to live, and why?

I like a fairly uniform and relatively high standard of living, where the differences between people that really matter are the merits of their ideas. In this world, age, wisdom, and experience are valued equally with youth, potential, and energy. Education is the most important resource in moving people up and to the right on the map.

Sweden looks good to me...
