Santa's best location: Kyrgyzstan

Hmm, maybe this is why we maintain a US base in Kyrgyzstan.

Santa Claus should leave the North Pole and relocate to Kyrgyzstan to optimise the delivery of Christmas presents, a Swedish engineering firm says.
The Sweco consulting firm found Kyrgyzstan was the most logical base to avoid time-wasting detours.
It took into account main population centres and the Earth’s rotation.
Santa would have 34 microseconds for each chimney stop, and his reindeer would have to travel at nearly 6,000km (3,700 miles) per second.
