5) San Marino
Another tiny country in Europe, San Marino is tucked away in central Italy. Need a doctor? No problem! San Marino ranks number 1 in the world for physicians per capita.

It has also been at one time the 3rd largest economy in the world, a powerhouse of innovation in technology.
Macau is another tiny country in Asia. A special administrative district in China, Macau is the Las Vegas of Asia. Enjoying a long life in the temperate, tropical climate of this country that borders the sea should not be a problem in this adult paradise. Perhaps it is the fun-loving atmosphere that makes this a healthy place to live.
