Lets say for whatever reason Australia is destroyed and all current inhabitants now have to choose another country in which to continue living...where would you chose. Try not to take pragmatism into account (ie- an EU country just because then you have free roam around the EU). Pick the country on the country itself and where you feel you´d best fit in, or live the best life possible or maybe a place that has fascinated and intrigued you enough that you would start a life there.

Id probably go with Denmark, with Canada 2nd.

Country I've been = Thailand. Beach, laid back lifestyle, good food and weather what's not too like? Close 2nd NZ. Awesome scenery but cold would shit me after a while.

Others = Canada, England. Similar culture to Australia so would adapt easier.

Probably Switzerland or Northern Italy. I speak not bad Italian and French and lived in Turin for just under a year so know the region quite well.

I lived in Sweden and Switzerland for 13 years. I would live in neither. Horrible weather and food. No thanks. Switzerland is just a police state, i got fined 3 times for dumping organic waste in the wrong garbage bag (yellow bag) in the canton or Aargau. When you buy the waste bags, you need your ID card, so that they can track you...go figure. o_O .While this is different from Canton to canton, its more or less the same everywhere.

I wouldn't mind living in China, my company headquarter been just moved there and we have factories there. Life is good, specially in Southern China (Shenzen), which is now full of Europeans and Americans all of a sudden.

Any of Ireland, UK, Canada, NZ; or if I could be bothered learning a language Italy, Vietnam (both northern to avoid the heat), maybe Switzerland or Iceland. But will possibly retire to the hills in Malaysia - coz its cheap, and up in the hills is not so hot and humid.
