How to achieve a good reputation as a country?

In these times of fear and uncertainty it is good to know that there are countries where guns are banned and one can walk free of fear anytime, night or day, on the streets. Where people care for the environment and the media is free.
According to the UN's Human Development Index and a similar ranking by the Reputation Institute following countries achieve those qualifications: Norway, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany, and New Zealand.

This site is about

Earth

the third planet (counted outward from its sun), it is not the largest but in fact the most dense of the nine eight planets in this Solar System, and it is the only one with some kind of intelligent life.

To human beings, Earth is known as the 'World', the whole shebang of this planet, the land, oceans, people, and most important, the weather. For humans nearly all things in the 'world' happen on land, exceptions are only some holiday activities: cruises, diving and surfing. For many people the world begins just outside their neighborhood, and they call it, out of habit, afield.

Until recently large parts of the World were inapprehensible for its inhabitants.

But now there is the Internet, you don't have to leave your field anymore, you can stay in your comfort zone and explore the world from there.

And while you're exploring more and more premises of Earth, you might ask yourself, does it make sense.

Ehh no, sorry we do NOT (not yet =) have an answer whether anything makes sense (wait to find out more in our next sequel, coming soon, really), but read on, and maybe You will find THE answer (forget 42, it was just a close approach, or a near miss).

Until then let's try to be nice to each other, and think about it, - you are able to read/understand this, this should give you a headstart.

By the way, while you're traveling this site and you realize that you really don't like it, please avoid to click on any advertisement, because by doing so, it would help us being online much longer.
