Switzerland Population: 8.42 million
Iceland population: 338,349 (Yup, not even a million people. Iceland is essentially a city.)
Norway population: 5.26 million
Denmark population: 5.77 million
US population: 325.7 million

One of these is not like the others.

That's right. With all of the resources we have, we should be able to do better than them at anything. But in just about all quality-of-life measures, (health, education, life expectancy,) they beat us to death. It's ridiculous.

Sure, they have higher taxes. But it pays off for them. We could learn something.
