It depends a bit how you define "friendliness". If, by friendliness, you mean politeness, I would say Japan is probably going to be number one (or at least very high-ranking). If by friendliness you mean being welcoming and obliging, any poor country has good chances to become number one. People in poor countries tend to be much more hospitable than people in rich countries. For example I have never been invited to eat lunch at a random stranger's house in my country. These kind of things mainly happen in Africa or central Asia.
Finally, if you define friendliness as being kind and trustworthy, Icelanders will probably win this contest. Iceland is insanely save (and I'm saying this as a Swiss person...) and most people are very trustworthy. I think this has to do with the fact that there are not many Icelandic people... it probably feels a bit like being one big family.1
