There is no definite way or mechanism to measure the amount of hard work a person, a group, a team or a country does. But time can be a parameter which can be used to judge how hardworking a person is. This can be done by calculating the number of hours a person gives to his/her work or duty.
In this same way, the amount of hard work a country does can be calculated. Thus a list of the most hardworking countries in the world has been calculated and according to it, Mexico is the most hardworking country on the planet as it puts 9.54 hours of hard work on an average every day.
People in Japan work for about 9 hours a day on an average, making it another very hardworking country in the world. Even Portugal is one of the most hardworking nations in the world as the average working hours at this country are 8.48.
Canada has a population of 34.48 million people and on an average people work for about 8.37 hours in a day and due to this even Canada comes on the list of the most hardworking countries of the world. Some other hardworking countries are Estonia, Austria, China, New Zealand and USA.
