According to the latest findings, the United States Of America is not even in the top ten for that matter America's not even in the top twenty. If you want happy then move to Denmark. Danish residents are said to be the happiest people in the world.

Wall St. analyzed the new Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development Better Life Index to objectively determine the happiest countries in the world. It is very obvious that of the countries that made the top ten, many have social services that are often frowned upon in the U.S.  The happiest people in the developed world get a lot of social services without having to work too hard. The whole study in itself seemed to be framed and/or judged to slant away from the "super-power" countries. Many of which have war torn borders. here are the top ten:

10. Austria

9. Israel

8. Finland

7. Switzerland

6. Sweden

5. The Netherlands

4. Australia

3. Norway

2. Canada

1. Denmark

None of these top ten countries poses a super power military, nor are they a super global economic power. That being said the study did take into account, life satisfaction, debt as a percentage of GDP, employment, self-reported health,  employees working hours, disposable incomes, educational attainment and life expectancy.
