Why is immigration by US Citizens to Canada, UK, EU, Australia & New Zealand very rare?

Even if they get a better work-life balance and free healthcare?

Is it because they cannot get a work permit and speak the language to get a job outside of the 50 states?

    US citizen immigration to Canada isn't at all rare. This is largely because the professional criteria required is more in line with the typical US educational attainment. The US is not India, awash with exceptional STEM workers, ergo most Americans simply don't qualify to move outside of the former NAFTA zone.

    It's certainly not the language, because the language in the UK, Australia, and most of Canada is the same language as in the U.S.

    We are the least educated of all the civilized nations and can't cut it in those countries.

    Immigration to the UK by non-EU citizens is very difficult.
