Costa Rica, the happiest place on Earth

That honor goes to Costa Rica.  The nation ranks first in a recent survey called the "Happy Planet Index."

A UK foundation rated 151 nations based on how secure the environment is and how long people live.

The US didn't do so well.  We ranked near the bottom at 105, mainly because of how we treat the planet.
