The country of Uruguay is ranked number one in Latin America in terms of democracy, peace, and low perception of corruption. Uruguay is also ranked first in South America for press freedom, prosperity, and a strong middle class. It’s also high-ranking when it comes to the economy and income equality.

Residents have a lot to be happy about in this socially-advanced country that ranks high on the global scale. They have similar taste in foods as Americans, including a chivito, or a steak sandwich, and pancho, which is a Uruguayan hot dog. They enjoy french fries, too!
