PANAMA – If you’re happy and you know it, then you probably live in Latin America. Latin American countries dominated a Gallup poll that revealed populations with the most positive emotions.

Coming in first place? Panama. A whopping 85% of Panama residents responded positively when asked about their overall well-being. Looks like money doesn’t buy happiness because Panama ranked 90th in a worldwide GDP, which means Gross Domestic Product. It’s basically a measurement of the country’s wealth. And 90th place is no bueno.

Singapore has nothing to sing about. They came in dead last and get this; they have one of the highest GDPs in the world. Only 46% of Singapore residents answered “yes” to questions such as “do you smile a lot?” and “do you feel treated with respect?’ Singapore even beat out Syria, Afghanistan, and Haiti. Now those countries have something to complain about.
