The Top Ten

1 New Zealand New Zealand

The best hospitals in the world.

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

Best place ever to live

It's a great place to live; Barely any police even need any weapons or firearms because the gun laws are strict. Plus there is lots of friendly people and lots of charity's that can help sick and homeless people really well so I think NZ os the best (americas got to much guns and trump)

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.

Canada is not safe, they are mean and will stole you if you do not watch out.

I know because, unfortunately I was stole in Vancouver, and I yet was bad treated in what they called "hospitals".

Canada take Justin bieber and nickelback and get lost. - NZGUY85

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! )

So quite and peaceful and safe :):-D

7 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands . Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry .

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

Definitely one of the safest, although I believe Canada is safest, Australia is a strong contender. Great country, brilliant relations with the US. Proud to be an Aussie.

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
