Default Uncivilization

We have all seen lots of disgusting uncivilized things on this Earth. But what is more disheartening - walking by a man "snoting" in Paris or Moscow, or if it were in Mumbai or Beijing?
Where do you think is the most "civilized" country in the contemporary world? Doesnt have to be a neccesary nice place to live, but just that everything is orderly, maybe even to a fault.
Denmark? Singapore?

I think I would have to say..........Iceland. Not only does everyone seem so put together there but the city is super clean and all of the homes are perfectly put together and their crime rate is almost noexistent!

I heard Singapore has some very strict laws including laws against public gum chewing. Does this make the people civil or do these types of laws hold the people down?

Singapore is called by some a "Nanny State" since it it always telling citizens what to do for the betterment of the country.

The chewing gum rule is true, but highly misunderstood. Right now, chewing gum can only be purchased in a pharmacy. The whole ban came about because of vandalism with chewing gum.

Other things that Singapore has done that has raised eyebrows include having undercover officers that would find people who did not flush toilets in public areas, and the mandatory death sentence for drug smugglers.

This may seem Draconian, but in general I would say that most Singaporeans appear happy with the security and stability their state has provided them.

Default Let's hear it for the Danes!

Definitely Denmark! I love how they don't kowtow to the politicos when it comes to free speech too.
