I am glad that Linus likes the country he chose to live in, but I think the idea that "most of the rest of the world" wants to live in the USA is a typical self-deception of US Americans. I am quite sure that almost all of the first world people and many of the others rather like the place they live at.
Just because most US Americans have not been outside of their own (or god's own?) country and are being fed patriotic news and propaganda all the time does not make the US the most popular country outside of the USA. If you look at the reactions in this international news site, you may notice that many people have a very critical view of the USA and prefer to live elsewhere.
