The Country with a Ministry of Happiness

Bhutan is the only state in the world proclaiming its official religion, the "spiritual heritage", to be tantric Buddhism. That is why the Government of this country considers its main objective contributing to the pursuit of happiness of each citizen; this is stated in Article 9 of the Constitution. On 24.08.2008, a State Gross National Happiness Commission has been established headed by the Prime-Minister. During the population censuses, question 22 asks them: "Are you happy?". As a result of the last census of 2005, 45.2% of population responded "I'm very happy", 51.6% - "I'm happy", and only 3.3% stated that they were "Not very happy".
