(CNN) – A new survey lists Costa Rica as the happiest place in the world.

The U-K based New Economic Foundation recently announced the results of its “Happy Planet Index.”

The index measures more than just smiles. It rates 151 nations by measuring ecological sustainability against life expectancy and one’s experienced well-being.

The U-S ranked 105 on the Happy Planet Index, mainly because of its large ecological footprint.
