Japan is the oldest nation, where 23.1% of its population is older than 65. Germany and Italy are not far behind and many other European countries rank high on this list. The U.S. is further down near the middle of the pack at 13.5%. The nations with the lowest percentage of living elderly has less to do with demographic shifts and is more related to those nations having generally much lower life expectancies.
