Please quantify your happiness immediately

You may have seen the story in the media this week that claimed Vanuatu had topped a survey as the happiest country on earth. Now, a bit of mathematical jiggery-pokery went into this, of course. Why not have a closer look yourself, and calculate your own Happy Planet Index - it's just a short survey, and the results are anonymous and interesting. Apparently I have a lower-than-average ecological footprint...
