This is from Denmark's official website:

"A further characteristic of the Scandinavian welfare model is the fact that rather than cash benefits, citizens are entitled to a wide range of service benefits provided by the authorities; these are often either free or subsidised. Both the health service and education are free. In the social field the organisation and financing of both transfer payments and service benefits take place within the same unified system."

Plus there was a study that Denmark is the 'happiest place on earth.'

Who knew good health, prosperity & education would lead to happiness?

I wonder what that says about current American ideals.
