Another world rating FWIW. In the Bloomberg Misery Index 2016, Thailand comes out the winner, with Singapore and Japan close behind. The index itself seems to be based solely on a country's employment and inflation rates.
The Land of Smiles really is the happiest place in the world, at least in terms of holding a job and keeping the rising cost of goods in check.

The Misery Index, computed by adding inflation to the unemployment rate, gives Thailand a score of 1.11 percent, which is the best - or least miserable - for all 74 economies surveyed by Bloomberg.

Singapore and Japan are close runner ups, with 1.40 percent and 2.70 percent, respectively. The U.K. ranks the 17th least miserable country while the U.S. takes 21st place. China follows closely in 23rd spot... ... sinflation
