atheist countries

Postby Indium Flappers » Thu May 29, 2014 11:23 am

I'm not sure if this should go in politics or religion, (feel free to move it if you think it ought to reside elsewhere), but are there examples of countries where the vast majority of the population is atheistic, and they perform better on standards of living indicators than most other countries?
