According to nationmaster.com: “More than a third of the time, Icelanders don’t show up for work. Perhaps that’s why they’re the world’s happiest nation.” (Of 50 countries surveyed)
I wonder what they mean by “don’t show up”? Do they really wake up and say ‘nope, not today’ and go back to bed? No phone call? No explanation required?
Iceland also has no military, houses just three McDonald’s cesspits, claims the highest cinema/lowest church attendance, and ranks number two in gender empowerment (GEM).
