Exactly, while it might be unreasonable to expect us to be in 1st place,
one has to wonder just how we end up behind so many poorer countries.
Some like Japan and South Korea you can expect to have better
infrastructure due to far denser population and smaller area.

Japan is actually larger than any country in the EU.
Interestingly a country of comparable size with the UK is Romania, which has been previously mentioned in this thread. Though with a
considerably smaller population.

I wonder how the figures would change if the study only compared capital cities? That might be a more level playing field as you'd expect capital cities to demonstrate the best available in each country.
