Canada has the best reputation in the world. Our neighbor to the north is leading the Reputation Institute’s 2011 Country RepTrak list, which ranks nations based on the perceptions of both their own residents as well as the international community. The Institute evaluates the public’s impressions about each country in a variety of areas, including safety, quality of life, government stability, economy, and environmental attitudes, to create each country’s score. Canada has the highest score of 74-point-eight to land at number one on the list. However, less than one point separates the top four, which also includes Sweden, Australia, and Switzerland. New Zealand, with a score of 73-point-one, rounds out the top five.

The U.S. has a score of 52-point-nine to rank 23rd among the 50 nations in the survey. Iran and Iraq, with scores in the low 20s, hold the last two spots on the list. Germany and Japan just missed the top ten, while Britain is ranked 15th. Mexico places 35th on the list.
