  1. Sweden 4,44
  2. Norway 6,44
  3. Denmark 7,44
  4. Finland 10,56
  5. Iceland 10,56
  6. Switzerland 13,50:

Germany 14,81
Great Britain 18,56
USA 25,06
South Africa 62,87
Russia 72,13
China 81,33
India 88,93

The results were published in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter and seem not to have drawn much attention outside of Sweden.
