Even before Tuesday's election results were known, disgruntled Americans were threatening to move to Canada.
While President Barack Obama's win appears to have satisfied Democrats' desire to stay put — at least for another four years — some Republicans are spittin' mad and want out.
But is Canada the right country for their conservative views? With same-sex marriage now legal, a universal healthcare system and a small military, peeved Republicans may find more of the same — or worse, according to their views — in the Great White North.
Then there's all the hoops they'll have to jump through to gain Canadian citizenship. The bureaucratic process is long and arduous enough to make anyone want to give up.
Luckily, there are some other countries around the world with economic policies and values that are more aligned with anti-Obama Americans who identify as Republicans.
Some of them may not be as desirable as Canada to call home. Admittedly, one place on our list is downright dangerous. But as the saying goes, when your mind's made up, there's no point trying to change it.

Run under a direct democracy, citizens who gather 50,000 signatures against a law at the federal level are granted the right to a referendum vote. Military service is mandatory and soldiers are allowed to keep their weapons at home. Boasting the highest wealth per adult than any other country, the landscape is gorgeous too!
This sovereign city state is known as a tax haven and playground for some of the world's most wealthy people, including celebrities. Hate paying tax? So do the people of Monaco. Income tax isn't charged here and business taxes are low. An added bonus is that Monaco boasts the world's highest life expectancy rate of nearly 90 years. Live long and prosper!
Although the relationship between this South Asian country and the United States has been mixed at best, a recent global poll by Globescan found that Pakistan was the only country to prefer Mitt Romney for U.S. president over Barack Obama. It's not the safest country in the world to live in, but that's not what we're talking about, right?
A small microstate in southwestern Europe, Andorra is bordered by Spain and France and has a population of about 85,000. Known as a tax haven, Andorra doesn't have its own armed forces but a law requires the head of each household to keep a rifle on hand. In the event of a disaster, able-bodied men between ages 21 and 60 are expected to serve.
Always wanted to live in the Alps? Lichtenstein is your place. Another tax haven, the unemployment rate in Lichtenstein is the second-lowest in the world and it's the richest German-speaking country.
