Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I submitted your criteria to FB friends in Australia and Canada. Both are far better than the USA, but Canada stands out for the robustness of their democracy, according to this sample of two well informed opinions.

I'm not trying to score brownie points for any particular jurisdiction, but highlight how much "the GREATEST DEMOCRACY IN THE WORLD" is really an outlier, something most of its denizens don't seem to realise.

The other thing which intrigues me is how Republican/conservative some states bordering on Canada seem to be - you would have thought that exposure to Canadian norms would have sensitized them to what a real democracy looks like.
