They may not be the happiest nation in the world but Pakistanis are easily the happiest nation in the region, the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s annual World Happiness Report declared in its latest report. The report is based on six indicators collected from 156 countries such as income per capita, life expectancy, social support, freedom, generosity, and corruption.
Pakistan is placed at number 67 which is among the top 20 gainers on the World Happiness index this year. Their jump of eight spots from last year’s ranking at 75 shows that Naya Pakistan is better than the Old one.

Finland remains the happiest country in the world while Denmark, Norway, and Iceland clinch the second, third and fourth positions, respectively. Pakistan ranks highest among all of its neighbors like always; the much bigger India ranks at 140 which is surprising considering they show themselves as the most advanced nation in films. Last year they were ranked in the 130s which is still bad considering China is at 93, Bangladesh 125 and a few spaces above Afghanistan at 154 among countries of this region.
World Happiness Report: India drops even further, ranks 140 on index of 156 countries!
Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh ranked higher than India!
Did they leave out the happiness of our bhakts?
