There are a hundred lists out there, many by reputable organizations. And they all have different criteria because "freedom" is a nebulous term that can be defined many different ways.
You typically don't, or really never, see the United States topping those lists.
We do well generally, but we're almost never #1.
That's nothing to be ashamed of, but the idea that we're the free-est bestest most holy country is a pretty silly notion.
