Andorra is the country with the highest life expectancy in the world. I did not know this when I recently had dinner with the country´s Prime Minister, Albert Pintat. Andorra is small but it´s not the Vatican. It has 80,000 very well off people with a GDP of close to $3bn. It is a beautiful mountain country between France and Spain. During our dinner we spoke about creating a regime attractive to IT companies and we were talking about how to promote Andorra in the world. Longevity though was not part of our conversation. I think it´s a nice record to have.

In the above link, of the first six countries listed by life expectancy, five are microstates. The data could well be accurate, but it has the unmistakable smell of a statistical artifact, probably a product of the disproportionate effect of population movements in the age pyramid of microstates.
