The Top Ten

I am Canadian and black. I feel safe and I can go anywhere. If I travel to Europe or Asia, I am always looking backwards for the crazies. Canada rocks
Canada is safe, clean and has every culture here working in harmony!
No other country can say that!
Canada is not the safest country in the world. It has a lot of guns, tornadoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms, and especially a lot of murders.
Canada does not have any guns, tornadoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms or murders you idiot! I visited Canada 6 times and it does not have any of that stuff! It is a completely safe country. are you just jealous?
[Newest]Canada is a very safe place but some cities are dangerous.

2New Zealand
New Zealand has less than 1% crime rate, a very stable economy and one of the most beautiful landscapes, so what's not to love. No, I don't live there, I live in the corrupt capital of the world... good old US of A.
Very safe, nice people, great culture. Hardly gets involved in anything dangerous. Less than 1% crime rate. Beautiful Scenery. Very green. I would love to compare New Zealand with America, and New Zealand won!
I live here and it is not perfect, crime is not unheard of, but it is amazingly scarce. I am originally from the US, but I have to say, moving here was the best decision I have ever made in my entire life.
[Newest]New Zealand should be no. 1

Anders B. Breivik is the only one that have attached Norway, EVER. I don't say that Norway is 100% safe, but it's VERY safe. Safer than many other countries in the world. I don't have much knowledge about Canada, but I'm sure it's a nice country : )


I'm just asking, when was the last time Canada ever had a terrorist
Attack? Oh wait! NEVER! Don't you remember the terrorist attack
In Norway a couple years ago? That counts as a factor for non-safety.
Just saying.
Norway is the safest country in few of years not canada first

Even the Cold War ended here! Most terrorists are not aware of its existence so you'll be safe from them too. Unfortunately I've been hearing a lot of the people from Iceland are getting out of there because they're bored or depressed
Hardest language to learn. They stay out of people in the world affairs.
Just because they are a small country

Finland is not only safe, but amazing!

Sweden should be number 1 not 7
Very safe From A British/ South African view

7United States
Who ever wrote the comment about America not being a safe place to have your kids go to school is an idiot and can barely speak English because their grammar is so terrible. They sound like a 5 year old and are probably from Pakistan and just like to hate on America because you know your obsessed with us. You follow all of our pop culture and listen to our music.
Any haters of the U.S. can shove that up their buts. We have hard earned freedom, which a lot of places don't have! I love it here, and I plan to stay where I am in Texas, thank you very much!
If you live in "the corner states" you are most likely to live a full life, along with places like Utah, Minnesota, or even New York, You don't have to worry a lot about crime.


8United Kingdom
I'm glad there is no volcanoes or major earthquakes here. Just the amount of rain!


I adore it here!
I live here and I love it

Known to be one of the most friendliest countries in the world, and it has one of the lowest crime rates!
Considered one of the happiest countries in the world.

I've lived there for 3 years, and suppose that Japan is the only one country on earth where you can find your lost wallet on a busy street without losing even one coin.
I do love honest, kind people and stunning culture.
I came to Japan to teach English. less than 3 months my bike got stolen so I bought another bike locked it good still got stolen in one year I lost 3 bikes. But I think its still safe compared to the U. S never heard anyone getting shot or a home burglary. haven't seen anyone assaulting anybody or screaming each other on the street.. Mind your own business.
Good food, nice people and safest country in the world
[Newest]Been there once, love to move there

The Contenders

I'm so confused. What are we doing wrong? We have a no guns policy, a multicultural community, some of the greatest cities in the world (just because the cities are populated doesn't make them safe). One of the highest life expectancies in the world! US has cities where gun shots are normal every few hours, that's called safe now? Australia is one of the safest countries in the world.
No guns, free health care, excellent police force that rarely fires at civilians (unlike America's) and a multicultural and accepting community. What more could you want? Australia has one of the highest age expectancy and one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world. Australia's crime rate is among the lowest in the world. We have a strong anti smoking society and have very strict laws but not extreme punishments (such as the death penalty). Australia is one of the safest countries in the world and everyone knows it.

P. S how is India and the United States in the top 10?
I think Australia should be ranked in the top 10 at least! Like seriously Australia is the best
[Newest]Australia would be the first numbers!

One of the safest countries!
Austria should be higher on the list!

Switzerland has the lowest homicide and suicide rates in Europe. I think it was deliberately left off the top of the list because it has a heavily armed culture which has allowed it to stay neutral for hundreds of years.

Very safe no military really fee
Very safe place to live.

This is the safest country on earth.
By FAR safest country!
How can this be below India?

Greece? Give me a break! Tons of crime, animal cruelty is off the charts, big time guito gangsters... YUCK!
Most warm and non-violent people on earth


Why is Philippines here the typhoon happend duh the typhoons name is typhoon Haiyan how do I know because I'm filipino and I saw the typhoon


Irish generally mind their own business, except in some remote towns where people are nosy
Ireland is like australia in its cultural assimilation but overall weather is better than australia
Personally, I think that Ireland should be in the Top 5, at least. Common sense people!
[Newest]Not just the safest, but also the best country to live in. Ever. Ever. EVER.

I don't think India is safer than Sweden, Germany, Singapore and Australia...


Proud to be an Indian...

As we are having differences in language, Culture and Opinions. But For the Country We all are Indian!
Different people, different culture, but all are Indians...
[Newest]India has the most yummy food but the best is pizza and Delhi city in India is so large and cool


Usually in big cities there is loads of crime however not in Germany. All of Germany has safe roads, low chance of terrorism, no murder and very little crime
Beautiful country, especially Bavaria. Low crime and friendly people.

Most arrogant people and not in least bit friendly. Having lived there for five years both in Tuscany and Le Marche

Brazil have many celebrations, canivals etc so I like Brazil the mast




Who the hell put the most corrupt country next to Brazil on here! People are terrified to go here.



British think their popular (at least some) -_-
The British are not knowing for been friendly. Cold stiff upper lip.

31San Marino







Live with beautiful girls and boys.. Wow

Don't think great place to live. Unless you want to be kidnapped
I Live in peace there.


40Costa Rica

Best country in the world




45North Korea
