Swedish citizen reveals how great it is to live, work and pay taxes in Sweden, and people are vowing to move.

Sweden has one of the highest taxes in the West. Its GDP per capita rose by 50 percent between 1995 and 2016.

Despite high taxes, its citizens benefit a lot from services like healthcare, free education, generous parental-leave policies, and heavily subsidized care for the elderly.


Demonstrating why Sweden is one of the happiest nations in the world, a Facebook user revealed what they earn, the amount of taxes they pay, and government-provided services they're guaranteed. According to the World Happiness Report, it was the seventh-happiest country in the world in 2020.
