Switzerland doesn't have an army. Therefore, their system isn't comparable. They also have a very high standard of living and crime is low. The number of people in Switzerland is so low it's like one large city. Again, not comparable.


Wasn't (s)he just responding to slushy's bogus claim about US and Switzerland being roughly on par in such metrics?
