Unless it is the same author using the same measurements, it won't be a good measure of how things are changing.

Good for a little fun though.

I think the top few countries are the ones where the people are more laid back.  For example, the other day I parked outside a shop in town to pick up some heavy bags.  Another man parked in front of me.  Along came a traffic warden, stopped the man in front who said "sure I won't be a couple of minutes".  Okay said the warden and sauntered on, totally ignoring my car.  Can you imagine that happening in the UK?

That's really sad; fourth place in the world is awesome. I think any government that isn't striving to top this list is illegitimate.
