Sushi Lovers
Going to the party capital of the Middle East, you can treat yourself to a number of sushi restaurants. Maybe “a number” isn’t the right way to put it. There are more than 100 sushi restaurants in Tel Aviv.

Israelis understand that it’s important to be healthy… but they also understand that sweets are delicious. It is the world’s third highest consumer of vegetables and sweets.

Tel Aviv is an especially good place to spy out Bauhaus buildings. With the massive number of these buildings, Israel has the most Bauhaus buildings in the world.

Getting Started
There’s no shortage of ideas and innovation in Israel. In fact, Israel has the highest amount of startup companies per capita in the entire world.

Antivirus Software
Can you imagine what it would be like not having an anti-virus system on your computer? Well, we can all thank the Israelis for inventing it in 1979 because without it… well we would be in trouble.

Chess Masters
Let’s clarify, we’re talking about chess grandmasters and not just masters. The southern city of Beersheva has the most of these in the world per capita.

Mini Subway
Do you want to know how small a subway system could be? Just take a look at the miniature 1.8 kilometer track of the Haifa subway system. How adorable is that? It’s like a big train set.

I've been on this.

Reviving A Language
The Hebrew language is synonymous with Israel and for a good reason. Israel became the only country in the world to bring an unspoken language back to full life, and then even make it their national language!

With its beautiful mohawk, the Hoopoe is Israel’s national bird. It is beautiful, and privileged to have enough trees to peck at.

To Space And Beyond
There are only eleven countries in the world that can launch their own satellite into space, and of course, Israel is one of them. The other countries are: Russia, USA, France, Japan, China, UK, India, Iran, North Korea, and Ukraine.

Curing Bad Breath
What’s worse than terrible-smelling bad breath? Nuclear war, but that’s not relevant right now. Israeli scientists have put together a cure for this “ailment”, but how can we get it here?
Image
Not enough Israelis are using it. :laugh3:

Female Lawyers
Around 44% of lawyers in Israel are women. It wouldn’t be right to say that 44% of women in Israel are lawyers, although they might think they are.

Libraries On The Go
At train stations and some bus stations across the country, there are bookshelves with second-hand books for travelers to borrow. One can pick up a book and drop it off at a different location once they finish reading it.

he Iron Dome
You’ve heard of an iron fist, well this is nothing like it. Israel is the only country in the world to have invented an anti-ballistic missile system that intercepts and destroys rockets headed for its civilian population.

Immigration Numbers
Despite recent upheaval regarding its immigration policies, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing country on the planet.

This needs to change.

Lending A Hand
A massive one third of the Israeli population is made up of volunteers. We should all get behind the idea of helping others out without expecting anything in return.
Image
They encourage volunteerism from a young age.

Surviving Cancer Patients
Israel is definitely proud to boast that it has the highest number of surviving cancer patients in the world. It’s not just technology that this country is leading the world with.

Unfortunately, Israel's very small population renders your statistics somewhat invalid.

Explore the meaning of "standard deviation" rather than averages (such as per capita).

What you fail to mention is that Israel is a religious based State...which rather takes the shine off things. It may call itself secular, but it is in every respect Jewish at heart.

Nonetheless, credit where it's due; it has achieved a lot in such a small space of time.

Yet it was Patriot missiles that destroyed Saddam's Scuds...

And much of the Iron Dome technology has been based on that system.

(America loves using Israel as a test bed for some of it's defence initiatives).
