When we disregard the small island nations (like Seychelles), there can only be one answer: Tunisia. Countries like South Africa, Gabon, Algeria and Libya have higher GDP’s, but the quality of life is more than GDP. Here are some reasons why Tunisia is the best country to live in;
Second highest human development index in Africa (after Algeria).
Amazing infrastructure, a great deal of it inherited from the French.
A diversified economy that is closely tied to Europe.
Second highest life expectancy rate in Africa (after Algeria).
Third highest literacy rate (after South Africa and Libya)
African country with the highest proportion of secondary and tertiary education.
The eighth-lowest murder rate of Africa (after Madagascar, Burkina Faso, Morocco, Algeria, Ghana, Malawi and Sierra Leone)
Best access to health clinics for women.
Lowest HIV rate.
Lowest birth rate (birth rates tell us something about the quality of life).
Tunisia is simply a beautiful country, clean, with a gorgeous coast, and beautiful historical heritage. I was born and raised in Nigeria myself. And while I think that countries like Nigeria and South Africa are much more interesting countries for the very wealthy, because of their cosmopolitanism, there is no doubt that Tunisia is by far the better country to live in for the masses. It has some areas in which it is better than in some European countries. Tunisia can be an example for its neighbours, including my country. Anyway, I consider Tunisia to be the pearl of the continent.
