Makes sense to me overall, but I might be inclined to move Scotland up a few notches on the strength of the key fleas-per-square-foot metric.

You're of two minds when it comes to Belgium I see. Not surprising. The Walloons and Flemish in Belgium don't see eye-to-eye about anything themselves.

Holland is placed way too high.

We should be in the lowest 10%.

Regardless of the criteria used.

I have been often to Bulgaria and as I have heard an expatriate say - and I wouldn't disagree- they have the highest number of beautiful women per cubic meter. It is a stunning country but not for everyday life.

Why? I haven't actually been properly (been through Schiphol Airport a million times, but never been outside of it) but the Netherlands is somewhere I'd love to go.

I think Masked Man and SOT should get together and talk about how much their respective countries SUCK.
