A Nanny State Index
I don't believe I've ever seen countries graded on their degree of nanny statedness as this scorecard does. It should be no surprise that some of the countries in the top five are ones progressives generally point to as ones we should emulate: Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. I can't help but think if the United States was included, we'd be in the top five. Certainly states like California would. Not something to be proud of, just the way it is.
