Visit Iceland - Top 10 Places to Visit in Iceland
1. Iceland — Iceland topped the list to be crowned the most liberal nation on earth. It has a small population of just over 330,000 people, but it’s the closest to achieving gender equality with the smallest gender pay gap in the world. It is also one of the most eco-friendly, and approximately 85 of its energy comes from renewable sources.

Both the USA and Canada made it into the liberal ranking, but who beat who? REUTERS/Carlo Allegri In the wake of Trump's victory in the US election and a vote for Brexit in the EU referendum, expat website Movehub has created a guide for those wanting to move to a more socially liberal country in 2019.
Movehub compared three different studies from 2019 to determine the most liberal nations — the Social Progress Index, the Environmental Performance Index and the World Economic Forum's (WEF) Gender Gap report.
The Social Progress Index examines dozens of categories like religious and LGBT tolerance, affordable housing, press freedom and access to education. The WEF's Gender Gap report looks into gender parity in jobs and education, and the EPI focuses on factors like air pollution and recycling.
Movehub combined the findings to create a comprehensive report on the most socially liberal places in the world.
While Scandinavian countries dominate the top 10, the results throw up some surprises. As the ranking looks at social liberties, countries with struggling economies like Namibia are able to make it into the top 25 because they afford their people more rights than nations with a similar GDP per capita.
From Finland to the Philippines, here are the 25 most socially liberal countries on Earth.
