Northern Belgians speak Flemish, a Germanic language, and they tend to be formal and more reserved than southern Belgians, who speak French. The land in the north, too, is sparer and less rolling. But local towns retain ravishing medieval streets and squares, and Belgium’s quality of life—as measured by education, food, health care, housing, infrastructure, high productivity and low poverty—ranks with the world’s best. According to international polls, Belgians are among the most satisfied with their lives of any nation’s citizens, and with good reason.
