Is Australia really Number One? What do you think?

Since workpermit.com has such a wide, global audience, we thought we'd conduct our own survey based on the story about a recent poll that found Australia was the world's favorite nation. What do you think? Does Australia deserve to be Number One? Are you surprised that the US is 11th? Should New Zealand be higher? Give us your opinion.

Thanks to everyone who responded. This poll is now closed.
