graeme_p, nothing against any religion but a strict Sharia law will severely cramp my style and I prefer not considering such countries.
True, but it does not affect me.

Its no hotter than any tropical country
That's the trouble. I'm in Mumbai, India where the summer is bad. It's even worse in Northern India. Hot weather undermines productivity.
The problem is that most immigration laws are not designed to just require immigrants to make a net positive contribution.

It sounds to me that Singapore would suit you if you can deal with the immigration requirements and meet the cost of housing.
The Singapore Entrepass requires entrepreneurs to employee at least four locals. I could be open to the idea but such a requirement creates a limitation in a business plan. What if I don't find the talent I want in Singapore? The same goes for all countries that impose these local employment requirements.
