Sweden is a world leader in many, many things. Picking out ten was easy. If we had done what our German colleagues did and included top five finishes, we could have gone on forever.
For example, Swedes were recently ranked fifth happiest in the world, Sweden was named the fourth best travel destination, third best place to be a mother, second best place to be young…
But that's not first, is it? We can outdo that.
Here are ten examples where Swedes lead the entire world, from goats to gays.
