Never been to Sweden but apparently they have rather good looking women over there. There is a company called EF that send children from all over Europe here to learn English. By here I mean England at various places. From the Swedish lot sent here they have hot girls. Pretty stereotypical though.

You notice the low population countries like Sweden at 10,151,866 and the worst like United Kingdom at 66,937,897. The socialist utopia always does worse as the population gets bigger.

In defense of Finland, improvements are on the way, mainly on paternal leave.

That's not exactly a pattern, with several small countries being at the bottom group and Germany notably high.
And that general argument I might* accept when talking about major differences, like 1000-fold US-Iceland or at least 50-fold US- Finland/Norway/Denmark, but countries with less than 10-fold difference are quite far comparable.
(*=usually larger entities are more efficient in everything, I don't see why that wouldn't be true with socialism)

Anyway, this whole comparison is really just about how good the benefits are, or as Liberty might put it, how socialist each of the countries are (on the matter).

It’s far easier to manage the socialist dream some want with a smaller population, than once it gets to a certain level the cracks show and people suffer. Hell all of Europe’s socialists countries couldn’t exist if America was not around to provide capitalism for the world.
