The United Nations just published its annual Human Development Report, which ranks where people live long, healthy lives —in other words, the countries that are best to live in.

The UN looked at nearly 200 countries across a number of categories, including life expectancy, education, gender equality, and financial wealth.

Here are the countries that scored the highest.

11. The United States — The US ranks high in financial wealth. Americans earn an average of $53,245 per year.
