Which is the kindest country in the world?

My 7 year old daughter Ananya asked me this very simple but very important question. I guess there is no easy way to quantify. I thought this was worthy of debate.

What are your thoughts?

    Aug 4 2012: I don't know which country specifically, but what would be the defining qualities of the kindest country? I think obviously showing kindness in everyday situations, and how well the golden rule is followed? (Don't do to others what you would not want done to you....) Also maybe allowing others to hold different opinions, and being generous to one another?
    • Aug 10 2012: yes i guess kindness to people, animals, environment and general good behaviour.
