TORONTO – Canada is taking the number 1 spot once again this year on US News and World Report’s annual ranking of the countries on Earth that care the most about international rankings.It’s the 35th consecutive time since the ranking began 35 years ago that Canada was ranked number 1. North Korea and Russia round out the top 3, with a large gap in scores separating the top 3 from the world’s other countries.
Claiming the bottom spot for the 35th year in a row was the US, whom researchers described as “firmly not giving a **** about what anyone thinks”.


We take these things very seriously, all the more so with Justin Trudeau at the helm, who will go to almost any length to ensure the rest of the world likes him, and by extension, the rest of us as well.

I don't believe it. There's no way that we in Australia wouldn't be right up there in those rankings. We're right up there on the ratings of both national insecurity AND national self-esteem.

If you were to listen to the news here, then it's obvious that New Zealand would top any per-capita based ranking of who cared most about rankings. Australia would be ahead in absolute terms, but the talking heads and anchors would be quick to point out that in per-capita terms, New Zealand cared many more times than Australia or Canada put together.

I just wonder where the Nordic countries would rank though. Is their usual high ranking nonchalantly assumed, or are they really smug inside and just good at not showing it?

New Zealand is Australia's Canada.
