The Top TenXW

1New Zealand

The best hospitals in the world.

South Auckland has such a diverse culture that invites everyone to be involved.

Gorgeous beaches & bush; you know you can step into knee high grass & there'll be nothing poisonous to bite you. Downside - no central heating in houses - brr

Yes, yes it is safe...

2CanadaCanada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world . This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories .

I'm so shocked that people think that Canada's not as safe as the US! What I wouldn't be surprised that seeing the US's crime rate, it would be the UNsafest country in the world. Shootings, Sandy Hook, Boston Marathon...

Canada's the best place to live in, according to "TheTopTens", so. - spbone

Every Canadian knows that feeling when you cross over the US border and you suddenly feel like your life is just slightly more in danger. That's what happens when you have legalized ownership of handguns and assault rifles and a history of bloodshed (revolution, civil war, Vietnam, Iraq, etc). Although crime exists in Canada, it is generally well reported and people have faith in the judicial system. Even white collar crime doesn't go unpunished.

As a Canadian, every time I cross the border and go to the US, I'm a bit worried cause the US's so unsafe. Canada's definitely much more safe than the US.
If SK hadn't been as unsafe as it is, Canada would definitely be among the three safest countries in the world.

The best country

Denmark is very safe and the number 1 most happy country in the world! Denmark should be number 2! But I live in Canada.

With simple nature beauty and very silent place. Ohh what I love

Bacon and beers - what more do you need to feel safe :-)

6Switzerland

No wars, god. Switzerland has stayed neutral for the past how many years? As far as I know, the Swiss government's tactic into keeping a good economy is by staying neutral all the time. No allies, no enemies.

These are the safest people in the world (in other words seriously boring! )

Southern hemisphere, small population, huge potential, most of the worlds troubles are in the northern hemisphere as well as the population. Beautiful country and people, safe free and the best country in the world.

There's hardly crime in Australia I think it should ranked as no1 country as the safest place to live in the world... beautiful country and good people and it's a place where you can relax and the perfect destination for a good holiday

I live in Pittsburgh, USA and I have been to Australia. It's really safe because it's rabies free, unlike where I live. Also it's got gun laws, also unlike where I live. I think it's great go Australia

Safe and no frozen

I don't think so! More guns than people. Get serious. Replace the USA with Canada for this list, obviously; you know I am right!

This country is amazing. Every country has its dangerous and safe places. Glad its on this list. Places like New Hampshire, Maine, Utah, and even New York are pretty safe. There are even places in Tennessee that are safe. - Cheezaleezers
