Russia has taken 24th place on the list of the world’s best countries. The list was compiled by the US News & World Report and released at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Countries were evaluated according to nine criteria: the possibility for adventure, citizenship, cultural influence, conditions for entrepreneurship, historical heritage, openness to business, its sense of dynamism, its influence in the world arena and quality of life. It should be noted that not all factors were weighted equally.
