Top 10 Safest Countries to Live In 2015
The Top Ten
It's past that so...
Norway is so beautiful, the people are nice, free health care very safe country.
I live in Norway... And believe me, it's SAFE! ; - xXImMyOwnHeroXx
Safer than any country in the world.
United States is going down hill. With outrageous greedy government spending, trampling and leaving its people in the dust. Canada is the best!
Everyone thinks it is the last safe place on earth if it raining lava, alien attack or blowing
Canada is like what the USA should have been.
One of the nicest places on earth, eh!
I have visited Canada at least once a year for the last 10 years. I have stopped visiting the USA and have no desire to go back there. In Canada the people are friendly and courteous, the place is clean and well maintained and I have a lot of family and friends there. The economy has been growing and opportunities are there for everyone. #loveToronto
Finland is rated the most stable country in the world by the Failed States Index.
A stunning 92 % says that the police can be trusted, making it the most trusted police force in the world. The robbery rate 75 % lower than in United States, for comparison. Almost unbelievably, the prison incarceration rate is 93 % lower than in U.S. , the low incarceration rate allowing the country to have one of the most progressive prison systems in the world focusing on rehabilitation.
While it happens murders eg. as part of domestic violence and between alcoholists, murders on the street are practically non-existent. Due to the progressive social policies, even the most poor areas are very safe, even at night. In fact, Wikitravel lists the following things the most severe threats to a visitor: cold weather, hitting a moose or reindeer by car and slippery pavements.
Oh, and did I already mention that there is no natural disasters, like earthquakes, storms or heavy rain?
What is USA doing in Top 10? - Le_Eux
Amazing country with friendly people. My wife and I will be moving to Northern Finland in 2017
Just amazing country!
Amazing country, beautiful mountains, four seasons, good food, great travelling opportunities, high quality of life, nice parties, lots of foreigners to befriend. It's my number one in terms of living in Europe.
Switzerland has the lowest crime in the world
Switzerland is best and safe and clean country in the world people is woo nice food is number 1 best country ever
Has many bunkers in the country side so should get +1 in advance
True is by far a great country. It could do so much better and be number 1. But like many European countries they seem to be a self destructive mode too.
I think it could be better but they are weird they hate themselves a lot. No patriotic at all.
In Sweden the highest time you can get in prison is 5 years. And their prisons are like hotels. Seems like a good country to me
Safe but cops are useless and government is slow and Muslims have preferential treatment
I'm Danish and live in Copenhagen. My mother would tell me I could go any where in the city but just had to be back by dinner. Only once did I run into trouble and that was when I was 15
I live there, and everything is safe and sound there!
Denmark is the Best country in the world.
People respect each other and generous.
I love to visit Denmark.
Greenland low population mountains to take cover from nukes
" in the middle of tectonics, free healthcare, police that care, great army, friendly, multicultural and accepting
People are usually kind. The weather is terrible but the security is good and even though there is rarely anything to do or see because of the weather I have almost all the time felt safe.
No guns, free healthcare, good healthcare!
Great people, terrible weather, too cramped!
The country without army seems to be the most safe country in the world.
Its true, country without army sure it's so safe and fantastic country
How is Iceland below America? It's so safe that the police don't even carry guns and parents can leave young children unattended!
This should be number 1, it lies on the sea so it's really safe to live.
I will use this opportunity to say that the Irish flag originally is green, white, gold not green, white, orange. I am Irish and the green represents the countryside, white the purity and gold the wealth. The reason it is confused with orange is because a long time ago gold was an expensive colour so people substituted it with orange and as the years went on the colour ended up as orange. So nowadays it can be called either gold or orange but originally it was gold - Sambazing
The UK and the U.S. safer than Ireland? I don't think so. Come on honestly. With the usas gun violence and treat from extremists. Not mention the radical bombings in London and constant attacks that are foiled. I lived in both the UK and Ireland for a number of years and I can tell you being from Switzerland that Ireland definitely is safer than UK!
Everyone knows that Ireland is the place to be. Friendly people, beautiful scenery and plenty of rain
No words need to be said about this peaceful country
Actually with Obama signing executive orders on things that should be reviewed by Congress, its only going to get worse. The raise of the minimum wage for example. Yes on the outside it seems like it would be good, but companies are going to start compensating for that lost money such as raising prices and firing employees (thus only increasing the unemployment rate. So while it may seem like it's starting to get better, it's really not. And no, I'm not some random person who hates on the US, I am an American citizen, born and raised, experiencing this down spiral first hand.
Do not base he actions or inactions of Obama if you are selection the best country to live in. Obama will soon be leaving office (thank God) The US is the most powerful country in the world. Peace is always determined by strength, weak countries never survive. We should however be careful not to worry about the entire world. We should take of our people first and help our friends later. We take care of everyone even those that hate us. This is a big mistake. We are blessed to live in the US.
Power won't help you when you go bankrupt. Canada has an army total of 60,000 and we are a better country than the US. Your ideals that power will make you number 1 just prove how blind you are. - TheCanadianLoyalist
I love USA as I am Pakistani but I really want to live in USA because the people of USA sincere with there own country...and I just love that...
Maybe so, but we also have one of the highest incarceration rates in the world. Mostly for non violent drug offenses which have enriched the police through seizures of property and private, corrupt prisons. We need to fix that broken system by giving treatment to addicts and not prison time - free up some space so the "peaceful and well-behaved" pedafiles and rapists serve their entire sentences.
New Zealand is great. Heaps of food sources, jobs and happy people. If a war broke out New Zealand has heaps of hills so it is hard for ships, planes and helicopters to launch bombs here. It has heaps of trees, nice little walks and a few big cities so you can go to the pub and shop. Overall I think New Zealand should rank higher in this list.
It's surrounded by water and does not bored onto other countries. I think it's safer then United States.
Because it's where I live. It's awesome here! - DunnaNunnaBatman
No snakes or big spiders
I recently moved to Japan from the USA and it's amazing. The cities are so bright and so beautiful, the lakes are so good to go canoeing in, and there's tons of family activities. So many fairs and festivals, the food is amazing, and the overall government is great. It's easy to live on a tight budget, and no, NOT EVERYTHING IS SUSHI! They have the best hamburgers in the world.
Love Japan, 9nth most competitive country in the world. - Allen
Yes knowing Japanese is plus and it takes time to make friends with locals but it is doubtlessly the most polite, disciplined, safe place in the world. crime rate is very low, you almost always get your lost items back.
I've lived in South Korea, Canada and China my life. Now going to live in Japan due to marriage. I can strongly say that Japan is most safest country to live. Canada became lesser safe and mannered due to pouring in of immigrants.
We are so small that no one cares about us so don't attack
Netherlands is really safest country in the world live here best place
Yes that is so true I was born there.
Great country lo live and yes it is SAFE! No courtains, no gates, no dogs to protect houses.. even in its capital you can find children playing themselves in the street or eyeing their bikes with no supervision. To me that's a luxe coming from Spain where you don't feel safe at all.. Nice festivals where everybody is invited to participate (not just young people), quite country even though is the most crowded in EU, well behaved children (and parents! ), poor air, nature and happy life!
Australia is a great country. It is safe, with nice people and good weather. There are also some very beautiful sights and wildlife which are unlike other countries. The education system is good with some very good schools and universities. The only problem is that it is rather expensive.
Australia should be 1 or at least in the top 3 because we have gun laws unlike other countries when a toddler comes behind you with a gun and just shoot you in Australia if that happens the child is taken away from the guardian and put in an adoption center.
Australia is good but its lost its way and is slowly turning into america. It was laid back but now its something of a police state. When new legislation is passed your only remaining right will be the right to vote. Pay is low, tax is high and housing is very expensive.
I can't believe that you put Australia behind some of those other countries where you get shot just walking down the street, at least we now have decent gun laws unlike most of the countries above and you can go to hospital and not have to give up your first born.
Australia will always be safer just look how far we are from anyone else!
Culture everywhere, low crime rates, this is the best place to live in the world.
I don't know much about South Korea, but I know it's better than it's northern thing...
It has been 4th year living in Seoul. The best county I ever visited! People are nice and foods are amazing here. Everything is super quickly which makes my life more convenient. Love being in this country
The economy, food, and the people are just amazing! Everyone is so nice and you have many opportunities for new things here!
Korea is awesome country.
Very low crime rate. I am Sri Lankan but for me this is the best country in the world along with Sri Lanka
Germany should be ranked much higher. It's the safest country in Europe. Munich is the safest city. As a woman, I feel safe anywhere in Munich at any time of the day.
Needs to top this list.
Germany is Safe but the Safest city in Germany is its own Capita
The Safest City in Germany is Berlin & I think Switzerland is the 16th Safest country because
Switzerland mostly borders Germany
Happy to live in India. A rich Indian to live in India is the luckiest person in the whole world!
India is probably the safest country in world... I live in this country and believe me its like paradise
Country which can't get conquered due to over population.
I am also an Indian... and I am having a proud on it and giving a salute to our forces... for being with us
South Africa is incredibly dangerous. Violent crime is out of control.
South Africa has one of the highest crime rates EVER.
South Africa is Probably the 2nd Safest Country in Africa the Safest city in South Africa is Cape Town
& Cape town is in the state of Southern Cape
I love Philippines. Everything here is so perfect.
Are you blind or jealous that Singapore is better than phillipines? Anyway this is lowest crime rate not best country in the world but even so Singapore would be at the top
Umm this is singapore
Singapore got one of the lowest homocide rate. Singapore#1
Save heaven in the pacific
It is better than uae & Qatar
One of the most beautiful countries in the world, people are lovely!
Amazing country with many interesting people around...
Spain is an extremely safe country to live in.
Russia is the worlds Largest Country
I am American and I like Russia
Russia! Don't believe all the bad things everyone says about Russia. The country is amazing! I'm of Russian decent but I was born and raised in the United States and I moved to Moscow after I finished University. The people here are reserved but by no means mean! I was at a farmers market and I was buying tomatoes for a snack and I told the woman working there I wanted 3 and she asked me "kilograms? " and I said no just 3 to eat and she gave to me free of charge. The people here are honestly more wholesome than back in America. Plus chivalry is a pretty big thing here still so… I don't mind that haha.
Horrible art and design, a dreadful language.
Ugly women, and the people are so lazy at home and so lurid. It's easy to just be yourself, and as this goes for everyone, people are very rude, they never help the visitor, they have always the false attitudes, they dislike anyone is not like us, anyone who does not eat like us, anyone who does not speak like us.
They have this silly rigid behavior in a chaotic environment.
Italians have no class, no charm, just redneck.
The food is far to be the best, and it is incredibly not diverse. Italy has serious problems with economy, and working with Italians is just impossible as they are so arrogant, derogatory. I can't wait much time, I have to leave from this terrible country.
One of the highest criminal rate in EU for 2014 (OECD - Eurostat Fact sheets).
Italy more safety city than Bangladesh
Italy more peaceful than Bangladesh
Italy more safety than Bangladesh
Brazil is the 5th worlds Largest country & I also think that Brazil is also the 5th safest country
Brazil is beatiful and the food is amazing
Gaddafi Libya is better than nowadays Libya - CerealGuy
Libya IS THE BEST PLACE GAD BLESS IT
This is place where you can see almost everything. Beach in North, big zone of forests in North-East, mountains in South, fields in East, caves in South, desert in North and many Parks. It is save place but like everywhere it's good to be careful.
Have been to Poland many times and people are just the nicest I ever met. They will always try to help you.
Many interesting places like: Gdańsk, Warsaw, Ojców, Biskupin, Crakow, Oświęcim. You can get to know more about polish culture visiting Folk Village in Chorzów, castles in Ojców, old village in Biskupin etc. Since Western Europe has big problem with immigrants and crime you have to be careful. In Central Europe you can feel much more comfortable
Why France is one of the most beautiful country:
Lots of different landscapes, architectures, more than 36 000 villages and cities, lots of different cultures etc...
Among the most beautiful beaches in the world, because of many Islands and territories like:
- Part of Amazonia (French Guyanne),
- French Polynesia with about 120 among the most beautiful Islands (Pacific Ocean), - French Caribbean with various known islands (Atlantic Ocean),
- Reunion, Mayotte are splendid islands (Indian Ocean) etc..
And France (metropole) surrounded by North Sea, Atlantic Sea and Mediterranean.
That makes France one of the rare countries flanked by 4 oceans (Antarctic included).
Due to its numerous Overseas departments and territories scattered on all oceans of the planet, France possesses the second-largest exclusive economic zone in the world,
Covering 11 035 000 km2 just behind USA.
It belongs also in France the 2nd ...more
Is it so sad that what was once one of the safest country will now be stained by terrorist attacks, shame on you ISIS.
I feel safer here than in Canada. Something is wrong.
France is a very safe country.
One of the best for health-care, social protection.
Place and people lovable, friendly, exciting and safe!
China is most safest country in the world
China more peaceful than Bangladesh
China more safety city than India
China more safety than Bangladesh
Romania is so safe and just a great place to live in. No it's not perfect but nor is any other country in the world. It has many green fields and even beach resorts! Depending on what your thing is with cultures and tradition you may or may not like to live there but, let me just tell you it is worth visiting at LEAST one in your life. So... Make it count.
Its really amazing country & the people more than friendly also the beaches & islands.
I like everything here. The people, the foods and the culture. Philippines is the best
You walk in the street at the middle of the night.. You go home home safely
