Collectively, humans are a pretty clever bunch. During our short time on this planet, we’ve split the atom, traveled to space, built the limited slip differential and invented an umbrella for dogs. Yep, all clever stuff. But (most of) these inventions, discoveries and great leaps forward are collective efforts rather than the inspired genius and toil of one lonely, dedicated man or woman. Which begs the question (sort of), of which are the cleverest countries in the world? Which people have contributed the most to our advancement as a species? Which does best at school, and which has the highest IQ. All-important contributing factors when deciding where to visit next, no doubt.
Here are the top 20 smartest countries in the world.
