Living here is... Well... Great!
Living somewhere where Humanity and its institutions are mostly good, trustworthy, and competent, but it's the natural world that's constantly plotting to destroy you...would be a change of pace, I'll admit. Europe might still be my first choice, though.
Anyone have anything to say about "Brexit?" I know it's complicated, but I kind of feel like it would be a move in the wrong direction. In a time when Big Business, Big Theocracy, and Big Muscle are trying to force us to believe "these are the End Times, War Is Forever, the Age of Miracles Is Over," the EU, when you really think about it, is nothing short of a big, real, modern-day MIRACLE that screams "Yes We Can" louder than President Obama ever could.
Also, are we quite certain that at least a large percentage of Britons who support Brexit aren't just doing so because it sounds like something that might be good to put on their morning toast? Because I'd heard about how the BNP tried to rebrand themselves using Marmite's official slogan....
As far as moving to get away from the possible apocalypse in November, heading North is a possibility. We Canucks are a friendly people and the social conservatism and other nuttiness (mostly) stops at the border. The only thing that might mess that up is if certain people have War Plan Red the 21st century version in their back pockets. Of course if that happens, the Brits, Aussies and Kiwis might not be in great shape afterwards either.
