Finland tops the Nanny State Index 2016

The Nanny State Index lists the worst places in the European Union to eat, drink, smoke and vape through taxation. Finland tops the charts, easily outpacing Sweden and UK...

The Nanny State Index consists of three main categories: alcohol, nicotine and diet. Each of the three categories is weighted equally at 33.3 per cent. Nicotine is subdivided into tobacco and e-cigarettes, each with an equal weighting within that category, meaning that they both have a weighting of 16.66 per cent overall.
