Gallup first published the list in 2012 and released its ninth list this year, which surveyed 149 countries around the world.

The list includes countries from all continents of the world, including the poor, the rich, the developing, the developed, the terrorist-affected, the insurgent, and the starving.

The list of countries’ happiness ranks according to their income, expenses, social freedom, health, education, the chances of getting help from others in difficult times, and other issues were taken into account, including the confidence of the people.

Surprisingly, this year, 9 out of the top 10 countries in the world belong to the continent of Europe, while one belongs to Asia.

According to the list, the happiest people in the world are from the European country of Finland, while the most unhappy people are from Pakistan’s neighbor Afghanistan, which was placed at the bottom of the list at 149.
