Serbia 106th, not bad, I expected somewhere below 120 or 130s

Little bit of everything I guess, yea the economy is bad, but before usually you had some notion that it will get better in the end, so one had some hope. Now most of the people know it's not going to be better; those who can emigrate somewhere usually do, those who can't know they are stuck

Given that the UK paints itself as a country where all is well, and shit like that, yes, 22 out of 156 is bad. Problem is UK would once be a lot higher on the list.
