The Good Country Index is pretty simple: a measure of what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity. Using a wide range of data from the UN and other international organisations, each country has been given a balance sheet to show at a glance whether it's a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet or something in between. The index comprises individual rankings for the following categories, in addition to an aggregate score:
- Science and technology
- International peace and security
- World order
- Planet and climate
- Prosperity and equality
- Health and wellbeing
