What makes a country good?

Bookmarked What makes a country good? by Amelia Wattenberger (wattenberger.com)

Every country in the world is regularly tracked by a large number of metrics. Some are mundane measures (e.g., population, physical size) and others are meant to reflect quality (e.g., control of corruption, political rights score). This creates a large list of variables that could make a country “good” or “bad”, with no simple way to combine them.

Because there are no universally accepted measures of “good”, we approached this question agnostically, allowing the individual user to interrogate countries based on metrics or reference countries of their choosing.

Cuz we don’t got it. We’re about at “bearable if you’re moderately rich, white, cis and straight.”
