Anything at all (keep it clean) goes here that does not fit in to any of the other forums.

Well, at least we are "free from conflict" here (beware: there's a video with autoplay):

I guess the rating confirms what you once said about Chile being comparable to Eastern Europe - it seems to be firmly planted in the company of Croatia, Slovenia, Romania and Bulgaria.

Best country for what?
Since the failed coup, Turkey has detained 50,000 people and suspended 150,000 more from work for suspected links to self-exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen.

The crackdown has also resulted in Turkey targeting media workers, with more than 150 journalists...

Though Slovenia is much more developed and the least Eastern European one (HDI confirms). It should be at least near Czech Republic.

Romania and Bulgaria are really poor and closer to Ukraine despite the EU membership.
