Happiness and the size of the state

Stumbling and Mumbling points to this paper comparing the relative size of the state with people happiness. The bigger the state relative to the rest of the economy the less happy people are. It also shows that the freer the trade people can engage in the happier they are. It should be noted that the countries listed with the largest governments also tend to be overall poorer, correlation ... or causation?
