Top 10 Safest Countries to Live In the 21st Century


The Top Ten

1 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world (size is 9.985 million kmĀ²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, more.

Honestly, such an incredible place to live. True, it gets cold, but I feel at ease walking the streets, knowing that nobody around me is likely carrying a gun. Also, with (virtually) free healthcare, I live with the knowledge that the people I love will be able to seek treatment for any ailment or issue that should fall upon them. Great place to live and I am super excited to see what changes Prime Minister Trudeau makes in terms of helping refugees and saving the environment. - Matthewn1999

Being safer just proves that Canada is better than USA. Canada is better because it is safer less overpopulated less crime better place to raise kids plus Canadians live an average 3 years longer. Beat that. If you debate with an American and ask him what makes his country better he or she will just be like well...ummm we have beer at 7/11's That is not a real reason Einstein. Give me another reason. American be like: Well Canada is boaring. I say Canada is much more fun than you realize. You can go Sledding Snowboard Ski in the winter. Also in the summer in some parts of Canada it feels like Florida in the summer. So beat that.

Canada wins again?! Every list I go onto saying "top ten safest countries in the world" and Canada is always #1. we are the safest country in the world. safer than new zealend, Sweden or Denmark. Canada wins it all. I live in Stockholm, Sweden and I'm thinking of moving here. Its really beautiful and it sounds safe. Just as long as its not in Africa or Asia.

They only get tremors no earthquakes

2 New Zealand New Zealand

Really? New Zealand is arguably the safest country in the entire world! I'm a female teen and I wouldn't care about worrying walking the streets alone at night. Couldn't say the same for other countries, though.

New Zealand is everything Canada is and more!

I believe we should be at no. 1, to be honest. Crime rate below 1% and is almost unheard of...

More sheeps than HUMANS lol

May India and Switzerland's relation always remain a good and healthy friend.

Switzerland NEVER EVER goes to war with anybody.

Nicest place in the world

Almost has no military, has loads of fallout shelters and has remained neutral in every war, not even being harmed the smallest bit in WW1 and WW2. - MagmaFox

4 Finland Finland
5 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

It's voted one of the top 10 safest countries to live in at least 5 years in a row. Plus there's virtually no crime rate.

6 Austria Austria Austria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often more.

Austria is very nice country and one of the most peacful countries of the world.

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

Not anyone it ain't.
(neither Germany or France, the worst places in Europe nowadays) - SammySpore

9 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. The country's official language is English.

Yes Australia does have some poisonous animals but you just need to stay safe. We had an anti-gun law since 1996 and had only 13 mass shootings from 1973-1996.

Australia is actually a great place, I live there, and there is a whole bunch of nature. Some animals are only seen in Australia (Like the kangaroo)

You would get eaten by a snake. not very safe

How is Canada gonna avoid nuclear radiation when the us gets bombed in WW3? they can't

The Contenders

11 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. It is known as the most peaceful country on earth.
12 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

The Muslims are not a problem, as someone said here, France is the multicultural country of Europe, and it's a real charm. Some problems occurred, yes, but the risk is low. The probability to be killed in a terrorist attack is 1000 times lower than to die in a a car crash during your daily working trip. And France has so many advantages, living in french Polynesia (120 islands) there is no more secure and relax. Just enjoy it!

The Muslim pig is a problem...

I'm living in France now, I have chosen this country for lots of things:
Life style, food, landscapes, cities, architectures, exhibitions, lagoons (French Polynesia), rain forest (French Guyana), diversity of people (120 Nationalities), fabulous castles (more than 20 000), health care etc...
But also for safety, even if some suburbs of cities are not so safe, but it's the same in any big cities.

13 Netherlands Netherlands
14 Singapore Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

This country is much safer than what somebody else think about other SEA countries...

This should be on top because this is the safest country to live in SEA Region!

No earthquakes, typhoons, hurricanes tsunamis or any form of natural disasters even hit here

Crime rate is low, government is good and so on

It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Very safe. Very agreeable spot.

I honestly think this is a beautiful country!

Such a beautiful country to live and all foriengers are always welcome here because we can communicate in English. The best English speaker in Asia even world.

The Philippines is a wonderful place to live in. It is also safe,because its Islands are separated from one another and its hard to go from island to island so it would be hard to get all its resources.

16 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

Too many US haters on the internet. I am an immigrant and I like the US.

Fat people will kill you

You can't be serious. I 2012 there was over 12,000 murders. - TheCanadianLoyalist
