The 8th happiest country in the world

According to a poll published in Forbes, Israel is the 8th happiest country on earth - ahead of the United States and of course ahead of all our neighbors.
Israel tied for 8th place with Australia, Switzerland, and Canada in a Gallup World Poll survey of 155 countries that measures well-being.

Denmark, Finland and Norway led the list, the U.S. tied with Austria for 14th place, while the highest ranking Arab country, the United Arab Emirates, was 20th.

Israel’s neighbors ranked as follows: Egypt (115 tied), Syria (115 tied), Jordan (52), and Lebanon (73).
I'm actually kind of surprised at this. People here tend to complain a lot and life can be very stressful here. It must be really bad elsewhere.

My impression, as an outside observer but frequent visitor, is that in Israel, complaining is a sport or avocation, and it actually mitigates misery and enhances satisfaction.

As an Ashkenazi, I can vouch for the fact that it is a family recreation: we call it "kvetching".
