France is, once again, from 2011 onward, the top country in the Kälin and Kochenov’s Quality of Nationality Index (QNI). This is an index which reveals the chances in life a citizen of a certain country have. It might be otherwise difficult to consider such a ranking, but the QNI index takes into account criteria like human development, economic strength, peace and stability, diversity of settlement freedom, weight of settlement freedom, diversity of travel freedom and weight of travel freedom. All these criteria measure factors from the number of countries where the respective nationality is allowed to travel visa-free to health, education and standard of living.
France is followed by Germany, Netherlands and Denmark in the QNI, while Romania climbed 3 places from last year, up to 22. Romania ranks ahead of countries like Croatia, Bulgaria, but also United States, Australia and Canada.
