Sounds like Canada to me.
You can't really compare Iceland to the USA or England. It is a very small country and does not have the problems of larger more open countries.
When you talk of social assistance to those in need and freedom, what does Iceland do for foreign aid? What does Iceland do to help people from oppressed countries in the way of immigration? It is Canada and the US that lead the world in that respect.
