With so much bad news about America these days, it's comforting to know that at the very least, we're still cool.

In fact, we're the coolest people in the world, according to an international poll.

Social networking site Badoo.com asked 30,000 people across 15 countries to name the coolest nationality, and Americans came in first, Reuters reports.

"We hear a lot in the media about anti-Americanism," said Lloyd Price, Badoo's director of marketing, according to Reuters. "But we sometimes forget how many people across the world consider Americans seriously cool."

And why are Americans considered so cool? You got it -- people like our celebrities. They also may like our president a bit more than we do.

"America," Price said, "boasts the world's coolest leader, Obama; the coolest rappers, Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg; and the coolest man in technology, Steve Jobs of Apple, the man who even made geeks cool."

Lady Gaga, Samuel L. Jackson, Johnny Depp and Quentin Tarantino were also determined to be officially "cool."

Brazilians came in second and the Spanish came in third place, but the poll wasn't so favorable toward Belgians, who were voted the least cool nationality on the planet.

Guess people aren't into beer and French fries anymore.
