A tiny country in Pyrenees mountains between France and Spain, called Andorra has the longest life expectancy at 83.5 years. Japan, Macau, San Marino and Singapore ranked second, third, fourth and fifth respectively.
FAST FACT: Life expectancy for women continues to be five years LONGER than for men! (Gee, wonder why?)
