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.

This is the worlds safest country because there is less crime

I am Norwegian and I know that the country is rich and beautiful.


No war, no suicides, booming economy, nice people, great food, winter is amazing, friendly smiles, virtually no pollution, hot springs everywhere, beautiful spring and summer, close flights to europe and the America's, beautiful people, enchanting music, amazing culture, and very safe!

No chance of War or Natural disaster (apart from volcano). Also an amazing country

Peaceful place to live. Although it can be very cold it can be warm and it has separated itself from wars and not many natural disasters. Also nice people. - llamaboy17

Iceland is also a safe country apart from volcanoes - kormo

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

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

A hamburger, Marshmallows, A gun for bad guys, A 3DS, And my parents. - JohnDionne


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.

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

Best place and best people

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

People on this website are just jerks.U.S.A. truly is the safest country FOR ITS SIZE. It's wonderful here where I live, there is only like 1 murder every two years in my city. - emraldYE

I live lived in the USA for 15 years, and NEVER seen a gun! NEVER, well I've seen two both locked in a cabinet for emergency's. But every country has its share.

Girls in mini-skirts coming off the train and walking down dark alleys at 1 in the morning, without any obvious sense of fear/danger.

Most free and safe country.


The Contenders


The people are the most friendly, always happy and very easy to start a conversation with. Amazing people with some of the most beautiful landscapes you'll ever see.

Really friendly people, lovely atmosphere everywhere you go. Beautiful landscapes- not to mention the house prices are brilliant!

The people are amazing and the country side is absolutely beautiful

Very welcoming and friendly

Austria is the safest country on the world because in each city are average 1 policeman pro 24,8 person and also in each city are average 1 doctor pro 36,1 person. Any bourgeois in Austria puts a high value on hygiene. Thus, it was also named the safest country in the world.

I love Austria! There is some much amazing scenery and beautiful mountains. With music in every city, also the people who live in Austria share all there great and interesting traditions. Lastly, the food of Austria is just delicious over there and it's definitely worth your money! 😘

It is the most beautiful country I have seen. I have been thru Europe, Asia and south America, including all of USA and Canada. You are so beautiful Austria!


Sweden is a very safe place, the people are nice and there's not much crime.

Well, Sweden haven't had a war since 1850 or something and its just awesome

Sweden should be 1rst or2nd or 3rd because it's safe and the people are so nice no murder any where


India is also a safest country it is away from volcanoes and also from earthquakes. Hyderabad, banglore in India are away from volcanoes earthquakes and also from floods. India is the second most populated country in the whole world so, India can be the safest Country.

Culture infrastructure awesome plains plateaus are amazing mountains in north just leaps our heart. But its Pakistan who had taken an amazing wonderful Kashmir from India as a azad Kashmir so our government is really shameless

India is a beautiful country


If there is any crime, then it is dealt with almost immediately.
The emergency line is easy to remember and is always manned.
You feel safe walking alone in shades areas too

I feel very safe here, everyone is friendly to eachother, no wars, we don't have guns (unlike other countries) I would say it's a really safe place to be!


Naturally tropical paradise. No civilians have personal guns nor other person. Only military have guns, which makes Maldives safer than others.


I don't understand how America beats Finland :/
Seems a bit biased


Singapore is a safe country, has good facilities, good medication and good education. It's also a clean country and life is good in Singapore. Especially it's good for expats to live and work.

Singapore is my country. It has lots of healthy food, great hospitals, is clean and safe to live in. I am proud of my own country.
