a better country
   life after death
   The belief or hope of those who profess certain religions. Also as a better state (which here is not synonymous with country) or a better world:
    ... strive to take it with faith and patience, looking to a 'better country'. (Sir James Murray in a 1915 letter)
    I wish... that God may grant you every blessing, that you may be happy in this world for its short continuance, and eternally happy in a better state. (Lynd, 1946 — quoting Dr Johnson's letter to Mrs Thrale on her marriage to Piozzi)
    To the memory of Ray Mock, my uncle, who long ago moved to a better world. (Koontz, 1997)
