Sinkies rank smartest country again but cannot produce a single nobel prize winner

Time's up. Pencils down. Hand your papers in. It's time to tot up the scores and find out which is the brainiest nation once and for all.

The human race is pretty damn smart. Together, we’ve come up with nuclear fusion; the ability to travel through space and those pillows that are in the shape of another person so it feels like you’re being hugged. Yep, we’ve got lots to be proud of as a species.

But have you ever lain awake at night wondering which is the cleverest country? Perhaps you’ve run into a brainy Brazilian, a genius Ghanaian or a super smart Swiss and wondered which country has the most intelligent people.

Well, we at Vouchercloud now have the definitive answer: the end to this argument in the pub and probably the start of a few more. Using a range of data including number of Nobel Prizes won (to represent historic intelligence), current average IQ (to represent present intelligence), and educational attainment (the intelligence of the future generation); we’ve covered every area possible to find the most gifted population.

So it’s our great pleasure to announce the overall winner: Japan. Consistently totalling high scores across all three categories, Japan’s Nobel Prize prowess matches its IQ score and pupil points, too. This makes sense in a country with a strong tradition of innovation and a huge emphasis on education — the land of the bullet train and the square watermelon comes out on top.

Rounding out the top 3 is consistently high-performing Switzerland in 2nd and China in 3rd. China, whilst lagging behind in the Nobel rankings, more than makes up for it with the 2nd highest national IQ and the 7th highest performing school kids.

In perhaps a sign of things to come, the US trails China in 4th, with the top Nobel ranking but a poorer showing in IQ (28th) and school achievement (13th). The UK makes the top 10 in a respectable 8th, but we shouldn’t be too complacent — whilst we have the 2nd highest number of Nobel Prizes, our IQ (17th) and school (30th) scores let us down.

What’s really telling is how incredibly well East Asian countries score in the IQ and school tests. South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore are all in the top 4 for both, but let down by Nobel scores that drag them to 10th and below overall. With a few more Nobel wins in the future, they’ll be on top for sure.


Nobel Prizes

Western countries tend to dominate here, the Nobel being a Western institution and all. Only Japan (6th), Israel (15th), India (18th), South Africa (18th) and China (21st) fall outside of this bracket. Expect radical shifts as Asia catches up in the coming years.
Ranking Country Number of Nobel Prizes
1 USA 368
2 UK 132
3 Germany 107
4 France 62
5 Sweden 30
6 Japan 26
6 Switzerland 26
8 Russia 23

10 Austria 21
11 Netherlands 20

13 Denmark 14
14 Norway 13
15 Australia 12
15 Poland 12
15 Israel 12
18 Belgium 10

18 South Africa 10
21 China 9
21 Hungary 9
23 Spain 8
24 Ireland 7
25 Czech Republic 5
25 Argentina 5
National IQ

Look at the top 6 countries! All Asian. The first entry from a non-Asian country, Finland, is over 3 points behind. Plenty of the usual suspects here but props to Liechtenstein (10th) and Mongolia (12th) for outperforming all expectations.
Ranking Country Average IQ
1 Singapore 107.1
2 China 105.8
3 Hong Kong 105.7
4 South Korea 104.6
4 Taiwan 104.6
6 Japan 104.2
7 Finland 100.9
8 Canada 100.4
8 Netherlands 100.4
10 Liechtenstein 100.3
11 Switzerland 100.2
12 Mongolia 100
13 Macao 99.9
14 Estonia 99.4
15 Belgium 99.3
16 Australia 99.2
17 UK 99.1
18 Austria 99
19 Czech Republic 98.9
19 New Zealand 98.9
21 Germany 98.8
22 Sweden 98.6
22 Iceland 98.6
24 France 98.1
24 Hungary 98.1
School Achievement

Children are the future and it's clear the future belongs to the 4-letter continent, with the top 5 countries being Asian. It's clear this represents a major shift in global intellectual power: as time goes by, we're going to see proportionally more innovation from the East, with Western ideas not dominating as they have done before.

Russia represents Europe in 6th whilst its neighbour Kazakhstan, hitherto famous only for Borat and being annexed by the Soviet Union, smashes expectations with the 9th smartest schoolchildren in the world. Could this be the rise of a new intellectual superpower? ALL HAIL THE KAZAKHS.
Ranking Country % of Students Achieving Advanced Scores

More a reflection that Singapore is a city state.

Rest are very big countries. Some people are farmers and don't go to school at all, others stay ghettos and main past time is using drugs.

So it's not that Singapore is good, but that some parts of a big country are bad and overall, Singapore is tops.

Lots of these test are also created by city folks, so rural folks perform poorly in the test which is focused on city living knowledge.

Thus, it's just a reflection that Singapore is a city state and not that Sinkies are any smarter per se.

But in terms of tuition fees paid, yes, singapore is tops I think.

Top in school and IQ but low in innovation. Does that even make sense lol. Innovation is wat makes huge $$ and make countries rich

This IQ and school thing is useless.

Sweden has 30 nobel and with only near 10million population. Sinkie should have 15....but we got none. Switzerland has 26 with 8.5million population.

Sinkies actually not smart. Despite tons of education, we dont innovate or make $$$ from it in general...

Nope.
Sweden and swiss have 10million and 8.5 million population. They have 30 and 26 nobel winners.

Sg has 5.5 million and NO winners. We arent smart or innovative...only look good on paper lol

India has only 10 despite over a billion people lol.

nothing surprising. we study to produce results in school. we are poor at problem solving and by extension, weak in innovation & creativity. it’s no secret whichever industry one is in. i see it on a daily basis at my workplace. sinkie candidates whom i’ve interviewed generally do not perform as well as their foreign counterparts.

It means Majority of the people in Sg have above average iq, no Super high or Super Low iq pp.... some countries have a handful of Super high iq pp but majority of the pp are very average or Low iq....
you rather have more above average iq pp or a few Super smart pp with lots of Low iq pp in your country?
More above ave iq pp = lower crime rate....

That isnt possible lol. Cannot be ZERO in the entire population. Impossible probability.

Facts are that Sinkies arent smart, cannot think much, only book smart. That isnt useful in real life.

This is why we wont get near swiss standard of living lol.
Our possibly new PM has to fix this.

Why cannot be zero, Sg population is very small compared to other countries.... probability lower with lower population, no?

Huh?

Swiss has 8.5 million population and 26 noble.
Swedes has 10 million population and 30.
Ireland has near 5 million population and 7 noble.

Sg has 5.5 million population and ZERO noble.

The amount spent on education does not translate to profits here. Anyways, our government already take steps to discourage higher education to not waste money.

India quite dumb since only 10 noble but over a billion which is 1000million population.

USA has 368 noble and 330 million population. This is why they are the strongest economy in the world. ...smart people...can even spend 5 times more on military than China does.

Our future new PMs job is to influence us to be smart like the Americans...
