How sexy would you rate the country you live in?

This month the US News Best country website announced the best country ranking list. Germany ranked #1 , UK #3 and Portugal #23 out of 60 countries. Apparently, they surveyed a few people, amongst them: “8,092 … informed elites and … 4,513 business decision-makers. Some respondents were considered both informed elites and business decision-makers. The remaining 6,381 respondents were from the general public”.

The attributes were: Adventure, Citizenship, Cultural Influence, Entrepreneurship, Heritage, Open for Business, Movers, Power, Quality of Life.

Although I think this is mostly a marketing ploy to attract business investment to a particular country, I was curious about some of the categories. I particularly like the category Adventure which included the sub-category “Sexy” – How sexy would you rate your country on a scale out of 10?

Here is my sexiness rating for these 3 countries:

UK – 8.5

Portugal – 6.5
Praia de Mira2

Germany – 5 (the coastline lets it down)
