The 2022 Best Countries Ranking was developed to understand how countries are perceived on a global scale. The rankings analyze 85 nations across 26 rankings based on data from a survey of more than 17,000 global citizens, measuring 73 variables that could influence trade, tourism, and investment and directly impact national economies. Once more, Australia defeated many rivals to claim 7th place in the rankings. Congratulations Australia!
With an area of 7,741,220 SQ.KM, the Commonwealth of Australia occupies the Australian continent. The total population of Australia is 25,739,256. The capital of the land of the kangaroos is Canberra. The GDP totaled $1.54 trillion. $55,807 in GDP per capita, PPP.
Why is Australia ranked seventh among the world’s top country in 2022?
There are also other islands in the nation, most notably Tasmania. Before the earliest British settlements of the 18th century, the area had been inhabited by native people for at least 40,000 years.
Similar to the UK, Australia has a parliamentary democracy as its form of government. The executive is subject to the parliament, despite the fact that it divides its federal government into “three arms”—parliament, executive, and judiciary. Although Queen Elizabeth II continues to serve as the country’s ceremonial head of state, all constitutional links to the United Kingdom were severed in 1986.
Australia has been affected by British, Celtic, and American culture from the late 18th century. However, immigration from non-English-speaking countries, mainly from Asia, has altered the country’s demographic makeup and shaped its popular culture in recent decades.
With a market-based economy and a fairly high gross domestic product and per capita income, Australia is regarded as a prosperous country. The service industry and the export of goods power its economy.
The country has a high rate of athletic involvement and a fairly high life expectancy for both genders. In international livability assessments, its largest cities frequently receive high rankings. Late in 2017, same-sex marriage was decisively approved by voters, who sent the matter to Congress.
According to surveys and government statistics, Australians are still particularly concerned about environmental issues. The nation has ratified the Kyoto Protocol, a United Nations agreement requiring countries to cut their emissions of greenhouse gases. However, among countries, carbon dioxide emissions per person are rather high.
The United Nations, the Group of 20, the World Trade Organization, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation are just a few of the key international and regional organizations Australia is a part of.
