Qatar beats out most of the countries on that (very selective) list. I doubt anyone would argue it's because their Healthcare system is the best. In reality, life expectancy is more about demographics than medicine.

Oh, and Qatar's not a socialized system. No wonder it's not on the list. Selection bias is fun.
