I did not skip a single page, I just went straight for the most reliable source, that being the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. Anyway, even if we take your ranking as the valid one, none of those countries perform as bad as you were trying to portray. 1750 is the Spanish average, of course that people in the big centers earn more than the ones in the countryside. The same happens in Sweden. At the upper end of its ranking, HDI is highly biased on GDP/capita. Again, you are trying to portray France, Italy and Spain as being poor countries, which is a blatant mistake. They might be poorer than Sweden and other nordic countries, but they still have decent economies, more than enough for sustaining a 1st world standard of living. Indeed it this is my personal opinion, but there must be a reason why you went 7 times to Spain :).
