I finally found the survey that compiled a rating for overall liberty from a variety of other surveys, such as the Random House survey (Click on the Heading for the details).
Estonia is the freest country in the world- not a shock to those of us who know her!
Of the leading EU economies, Germany is 21st (behind Latvia), Spain is 34th (behind Cape Verde), Italy is 41st (behind Botswana) and France is astonishingly 48th (behind South Africa).
Horrifyingly, Russia is 124th- even Saudi Arabia is freer than the Russian Federation.
In last place- North Korea- 122 places behind the democratic South.
