Danes - The Happiest People in the World...
...I want to be happy - But I won't be happy - Till I make you happy too!

Happiest people in the world
The Danes have been awarded several times in many international surveys and studies - the status and appraisal of being the "happiest people" in the world - with a very high living standard - and the Danes have their own opinion - as why the Danish nation ranges among the best in the world - which are fundamentally - traditionally and mentality: The Core Danish Values - based on mutual trust and confidence with one another!

Democratic rights and freedom
Furthermore - most of all freedom loving Danes protect and defend their democratic rights - as freedom of speech - freedom of the press - gender equality - high quality of life - financial security and social benefits - informal working atmosphere - clean environment - equal educational possibilities - Christian values and many other traditions that are a strong and natural part of the cultural heritage and national identity - which has contributed to build up the Danish kingdom through many generations and centuries - and also by means of mutual trust and confidence among the Danes - and amongst other fellow citizens - that are the basic elements and core values of a democratic and Christian society like the Danish.

The Danes and their country - in brief
Moreover - the Danes just adore their country - even though they are the most heavily taxed people in the world. They work hard - but happily pay for their welfare system that gives every individual equal rights and privileges to have free access to the public health care system - plus other social and public services and benefits.

Gender Equality - A Fundamental Danish Value
Additionally - one of the most important and basic elements in the Danish society is the fundamental principle of gender equality - which is the primary driving force - that has for generations been a united teamwork between the Danes to developed and form one of the world’s most unique and well functioning welfare systems - based on a deep-rooted gender equal society and gender equal lifestyle - which is in great harmony with the Danes democratic ideals and shared values.

Danish Movements since 1790
Some of the foundation of the freethinking - democratic and modern society in Denmark is based and built on the Cooperative Movement from 1790s (Andelsbevægelsen) - the Folk High School Movement from 1844 (Højskolebevægelsen) - the growing Danish Women’s Movement from 1870 (Kvindebevægelsen) - as well as the developing Labour Movement from 1870s (Arbejderbevægelsen) - which all had great impact on the Danes daily life - and also had enormous influence in preparing and signing the Danish Democratic Constitution in 1849 - plus later sections of the Constitutional Act. All these movements have later evolved into new fruitful branches - and local voluntary associations - which are spread all over the Danish Kingdom - with millions of active members - and is still the cornerstone of Danish values - culture - traditions and solid cohesiveness - which has been practiced through numerous generations.

Happy people & satisfied employees
All these basic factors and core values are properly the reason - why the Danes are gifted with several international awards for being a nation with the "happiest people" in the world - and recent studies backed up by a number of editorial surveys reports that the working environment in Denmark also confirm that Danish companies have the most satisfied employees in Europe

Ask for a seldom autograph!
When you meat a Dane - just politely ask for their autograph - as you are meeting someone very special - for instance - the Danes you contact has the record of paying the highest taxes in the world - actually they are world champions in this discipline - and placed on top of the victory podium - and secondary they are the only and seldom species that speak the Danish language among the very chosen few living on this lovely and crowded planet called Earth.

Test the Danes Happiness
When you visit Denmark and Copenhagen - you are welcome to speak to some Danish citizens - and ask if they actually are the happiest people in the world - as awarded by numerous surveys and reviews during time - and also if they are living in the happiest place on earth - like some studies claim - and we presume the answer will be quite positive. Just try!
