The Envelope, Please VII

I've been remiss to link to the 2009 index of Economic Freedom. Eight countries scored 80% or higher:

Hong Kong (90.0)
Singapore (87.1)
Australia (82.6)
Ireland (82.2)
New Zealand (82.0)
United States (80.7)
Canada (80.5)
Denmark (80.0)

Denmark joins this group for the first time in the history of the Index; it was 79.6% free last year.

Estonia is still the top-ranked former Communist nation, at 76.4. It also ranks sixth among European nations.
