Both Koreas?

North Korea isn't even rated in this map They obviously don't have enough data or information for that country to rate it

I would pick New Zealand or Iceland.

And Poland is totally irrelevant. Nice

I'm surprised that Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania are red.

This article is about being born, not just living there. If you are lucky enough to have UAE citizenship by being born there you will have endless benefits from full free medical care to free education in the best places abroad (since they are filthy rich and natives are a mere 12% of the UAE population)

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

The best, probably

That's what I meant to highlight - that as a country, it is unlike the rest of the region, that it's built around this discovery of wealth - its Muslim affiliation is almost an afterthought to what it is today because that has very little to do with why people settle and create a life there. It's a 40-year-old country.
