Top Ten Most Non-Religious Countries


The Top Ten

1 Sweden Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

As a Swede myself I can definitely say that Sweden is the least religious. Religious people are really rare. I honestly don't think I know anyone who is 100% religious. If people are religious they are very underground with it. Not to many people go to church and such even though they belive in God. Most of the population does'nt really know. In Sweden there really is no right and wrong when it comes to religion. Most people I know think that the big bang and evolution happend but they also want to belive in a life after death. - Grouse

Over 85% are nonreligious. People were unable to find a minor who was religious. - ethanmeinster
