The North Korean global happiness index

Here at MR we are always keen to report dissenting viewpoints:

China is the happiest place on earth(!!) according to a new global happiness index released by North Korea’s Chosun Central Television. China earned 100 out of 100 points, followed closely by North Korea (98 points), then Cuba, Iran, and Venezuela. Coming in at 203rd place is America (or rather “the American Empire”, 美帝国), with only 3 happiness points. South Korea got a measly 18 points for 152nd place.

I cannot find the full rankings (which countries came between South Korea and the United States?) but here is a partial screen shot of the results, in Chinese.  For the pointer I thank Eapen Thampy.
