The 2014 Social Progress Index launched yesterday.  It is a brainchild of Michael E. Porter, the eminent Harvard business professor and measures national progress in delivering social and environmental value. 132 countries are ranked on criteria like Basic Human Needs,
Foundations of Wellbeing and Opportunity. Check it out, the results might surprise you.  The most industrial nations are not in the top 10.
