The 2106 Rio Summer Olympics are set to start on August 5th and the competition between the countries of the world is heating up. But as far as the US News Best Countries report is concerned, the medals have already divvied out to the winners. And while some countries boasted more global power than others, the quality of life rankings proved a great qualifier for the best overall.

While the US fell near the bottom of this list, our neighbor to the north, Canada, boasted the best quality of life in the entire world for their welcoming traditions, their cultural diversity and their incredible commitment to social good. The report stated that countries were judged on their quality of life by whether or not they were “economically stable, family friendly, financially equal, politically stable, safe, well-educated, and possessing a well-developed public health system.”

Check out the rest of the list below to find out where your next international home should be located.
