This from Wiki:
Note that due to differences in reporting, these numbers may not be comparable across countries; while the WHO recommendation is that all children who show signs of life should be recorded as live births, in many countries this standard is not followed, artificially lowering their infant mortality rates relative to countries which follow those standards.
On the same page, 2013 Estimates of infant mortality by UN standards, whatever they might currently be:
UK 4.5
US 5.4
Singapore 2.8

I rest my case. Meanwhile, most all America is pulling for the Euro space mission to be successful at landing on the comet.
