    But Israel, South Korea and the US, two developed economies, aren't as highly positioned as the other developed countries. Aside from considering a country's domestic stability - which, to a large extent, does reflect social development -, the list also takes into account the conflictiveness of its foreign relations. It is thus a rather weak measure of development levels.

    But the definition of developed is subjective. It could be argued that the Native Americans who populated North America before the Europeans were more developed. Just because a country has a developed economy does not make it a developed country on many forms of measurements. I'd rather live in a more peaceful country or a country that has a high quality of life.
