All jokes aside, it's pretty expensive to live here and we've come just outside the top 10 in a list of the most expensive countries in the world to live in.

The top 10 most expensive countries to live in are:

2. Norway
3. Venezuela
4. Iceland
5. Denmark
6. Australia
7. New Zealand
8. Singapore
9. Kuwait
10. UK
11. Ireland
