Not necessarily.

i think at the end of the day a government should be judged on basis of how effective it’s in providing happiness to maximum number of people. Interestingly, people can be manipulated into being happy. So even by this criteria leaders like Putin and Modi with good PR are better than Barack Obama with worse PR team.

Or maybe we should calculate a country’s HDI? Or just economic criteria. What do you think?
