Singapore : least emotional in the world ?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/21/singapore-least-emotional-country-poll

Assuming there is some truth to the claim above, what do statistics say ?

From the article :
Singapore’s 5.2 million residents work – at 46.6 hours a week – the longest hours in the world, according to the ILO. And only 2% of the country’s workforce describe themselves as engaged by their jobs, according to the Bloomberg report, despite the global average being 11%.

 

This paragraph certainly made me sit up :
“If you measure Singapore by the traditional indicators, they look like one of the best-run countries in the world,” Gallup’s Jon Clifton was quoted as saying in a Bloomberg report on the survey. “But if you look at everything that makes life worth living, they’re not doing so well.”
