I am a software engineer from India and get a opportunity to get H1B visa for USA and PR-Permanent residency for Australia, which country I have to choose and which is best in every aspect such as “standard of living”, healthcare, Tax, cost of living,….etc?

I am really confused which option I have to choose,

Can anyone compare USA and AUS and list out its “Plus” and “Negatives” ?

So you just randomly applied to these two countries and now are asking for a bunch of strangers over the internet to help you choose?

"USA".compareTo("AUS") gives 20 in my Java installation

The hamming distance between USA and AUS is 3.

The "rotational distance" between them, if there is such a thing, is 1 (or -1).

I leave calculation of the Damerau–Levenshtein distance to the reader.

I live "inside the Beltway" of Washington DC, the capitol of the United States. The house next door has a family who are diplomats from Australia. We often compare the countries. The two countries are about the same size. And they have major cities in mirror locations. Each have a big cities on the East Coast, a mostly empty middle and one or more big cities on the West Coast.

Snow is fairly rare in Australia, and fairly common in the northern states in the US.

From my view, the Australian politics are a bit more sanely socialistic than the US, but both are clearly capitalistic countries. I believe that health care is probably better in the US, but how we pay for health care is baroque, opaque and unfair.

Both countries were shameful in how they treated their native citizens, stealing their land, killing them, etc.

spoken by someone who had probably never been in the middle of the U.S.A.

Having lived here my entire life, I can tell you it is FAR from empty.

three years in St Louis, on and off in Denver over five years, with TDY in Reno, Portland, Des Moines, even Bend Oregon.

I'll admit that the middle of the USA has more folks than the middle of Australia, but both are mostly fly over zones.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
