Norway is definitely an

Norway is definitely an expensive place to live. Especially if you have expensive vices such as drinking and smoking. However they are not apart of the EU, they are not apart of the EuroZone, they have an incredibly strong currency which they don't manipulate to keep par with the Euro for ease of trade. The people who live there (I have several Norwegian friends) are very well paid compared to others who have similar career fields in other countries. After they pay their taxes, they still have more money than the rest of us. Plus, their money buys a lot more. There are lots of things to consider as it's not always so black and white when trying to determine a place to relocate.
