Okinawa is located in the East China Sea, close to Japan. The island is largely composed of coral rocks, and rainwater filtering through the corals has given the island many caves. It has a very large proportion of it's population living to 100 years of age, and this is attributed to their healthy diet rich in vegetables and fish. Okinawa also has the highest life expectancy rate in the world, with native men living on average to 90.1 years and native women living to an average of 93.2 years.

If you're not a fan of endless semi-arid steppe and decaying industrial cities, Kazakhstan (Kazakstan) may seem bleak, but those who enjoy remoteness, wide open spaces, lunar landscapes, long hypnotic train rides and horse sausage will definitely be in their element.

Australia.

PS Bedford, Tasmania is an island state south of the mainland of Australia, not a country in it's own right.
