Finland is eleventh on the United Nations' Human Development Index[2] and ranked as the sixth happiest nation in the world.[3] According to the World Audit Democracy profile, Finland is the freest nation in the world in terms of civil liberties, freedom of the press, low corruption levels and political rights.[4] Finland is rated the sixth most peaceful country in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit,[5] and since 1945, Finland has been at peace, adopting neutrality in wartime.
