Interesting that every one of the countries you list is in one way or another a socialist democracy. If you include the USA on that list it would the least socialist of the bunch.
Don't kid yourself. The US is the most socialist of all. Our government spends more than all of those countries, we just don't give it to the poor, we give it to people who are already rich.
For someone who cares most about religion it's weird that most of these countries aren't very religious. Norway and Sweden are the two most atheist countries in the world if I recall correctly.
Sounds good to me; I'm as atheist as a newborn.
But France has the best care.And wine.
Health care, that is.Although the care in France is pretty good too.
Overall I like your list... but I think I may like Ireland too.
