Norway is indeed one of the safest places in the world to live in. Crime and poverty are almost non-existent. The rural and urban areas in Norway are magnificent and peaceful. Norway has several good qualities that make it a truly safe country to live in.

I can tell you that this is probably the most safe country in the world. Everyone here is homogenous, and Norway has an extremely low poverty rate. When no one wants to kill each other because of race or religion and when everyone has enough money, crime is extremely low. Hence, Norway is one of, if not the safest country on Earth.

As a proud Swede, I must say that Norway is much more safe than Sweden.

Norway is truly the safest country in the world. No contest.

Canada is a beautiful and safe country. The crime rate is very low, the climate is mild, (at least in southern areas), and the healthcare, education, and economy is strong! I would argue to say it's one of the best places in the world to live!

Vandalism in this place is low, but on a bathroom stall someone wrote "Have a nice day!" People here are so nice! Also a beautiful country with lots of wildlife that just exists freely along humanity. I wish USA was like this, smh.
