Every day is a g’day in Australia.

The people from Down Under will be tickled pink to learn that their nation has been named the happiest country in the world for the third consecutive year.

The Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development created its list by crunching the numbers for 230 developed countries, including data for income levels, health, safety and housing.

And even with the loud debated on gun control, healthcare issues and unemployment infiltrating our lives on a daily basis, the good ol’ US of A still finished sixth.

The 10 happiest countries in the world:

1. Australia
2. Sweden
3. Canada
4. Norway
5. Switzerland
6. United States
7. Denmark
8. The Netherlands
9. Iceland
10. United Kingdom
