Samsquantch:
I am considering leaving Canada. Under Trudeau things have gotten quiet bad and he's done a great deal of damage to the country.

I hear Idaho is rather nice...

Well, Uruguay has some disadvantages (a terrible bureaucracy, high prices on imports, regulations make it almost impossible to start a profitable small business), but on the whole it keeps getting better and better. A new Conservative government that refused (against huge pressure from the communists, the WHO, the UN, and media) to institute a lockdown, increasingly cosmopolitan, good internet connections (including for business), real estate is still very cheap, and of course all the things that it always had that were good (the people, semi-decent weather with about 6 months of serious warmth and only about 2 of real cold, the MEAT and all the food in general, a culture that is relatively educated and european in style but very culturally-libertarian and tolerant, beaches if you're into that, etc). Plus, lots of gamers!

As long as you don't need to try to get a job or start a local business here (but rather can work online internationally, or live on a fixed income, or you plan to engage in real estate as your business),  this is a great place to live.

Very interesting information, Pundit. Thanks.

Never been to the USA and have no desire to go there for an extended visit anyway.
Would love to go on a holiday there to check out the native American sites and natural beauty.
Visiting cities doesn't interest me at all.
The USA seems to be to be a great place to live if you're wealthy, otherwise forget it.

I've lived or stayed for an extended period in many European countries, UK, Ireland, Scandinavia.
Visited many Asian countries and some North African and Middle Eastern countries.

For me, nothing comes close to the lifestyle, quality of life that Australia has to offer if you're rich or not rich at all.
Lots of jobs, strong economy, great weather, Natural beauty, overall safe country, a Government that stands up to external pressure.

Thanks for the info - looks like Uruguay dodged a bullet by sensible restrictions and having their own testing regime based on locally-sourced equipment and methods.  (more info here: https://www.bmj.com/content/370/bmj.m3575)
