Top 10 Safest Countries to Live In the 21st Century

The Top Ten Safest Countries to Live In the 21st Century

1 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.

Norway should be number 1. It is the safest country in the world.

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.

Best place to live in. Norway is much better than any country in the world.

No country is safer than Norway

2 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 by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, 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 is awesome you don't have to worry about most of the things AND WE GET FREE HEALTH CARE!

Canada is far away from any threat and protected by both its own military and its neighbour, the United States.

3 Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

It is the most happiest country in the world

Safest country in the world

Der er et yndigt land

4 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.
5 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.

Overall safe, but once you get to a bigger city where a lot of refugees are it gets a little dangerous especially for women.

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

6 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

7 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. more.

New Zealand is a very safe country, except for the fact that there was a Mosque shooting that had happened on March 2019 in Christ Church, which is sad, and earthquakes can also occur, again in Christ Church.

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!

More sheeps than HUMANS lol

8 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities. more.

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

Number 1 definitely, not Canada, at least Switzerland doesn't have school shootings like Canada does.

Switzerland NEVER EVER goes to war with anybody.

Welcome to switzerland safest country in the world

9 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

Nicest place in the world

It is most happiest country in the world

Crime rate is low, government is very good and so no

Japan more peaceful than Norway

10 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.

You would get eaten by a snake. not very safe

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)

Australia is far more safer than other countries.

The Contenders

11 Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.
12 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

13 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. more.

Other than wind and crazy Polish people it is completely safe.

England was great before the two world wars, it was good before joining the EU, its been downhill ever since, but a resurgence may be on its way.

The English have invaded many countries including India and have ran away shamelessly back to England when they lost to those counties.they have stolen the Indian Kohinoor diamond which is the biggest diamond in the world.this proves that England is a bad country with thieves and bad people

Shut up do not say that again anti mgnwna you aren't going to understand at all

14 Czech Republic Czechia, officially the Czech Republic, is a nation state in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.
15 Netherlands
16 Portugal Portugal (est.1152), officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located mostly on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. It is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain. Its territory also includes more.
17 Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Ukraine is a very safe country. Don't be like those idiots who assume the entirety of Ukraine is dangerous just because there is war in the eastern part. Those idiots just want other people to hate Ukraine and believe that Ukraine is a dangerous country. Ukraine is just like any other European country. It has many beautiful places to visit.

Yes, people assume Ukraine is dangerous just because only one part is dangerous. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT! Only Eastern Ukraine is unsafe because there's a war there. If you want safe, go to Western Ukraine. Don't assume the entire country is dangerous just because only one part is dangerous.

THIS IS A JOKE! They are being invaded by Russia. This place is not safe at all. Constant war, shellings, and since 2014, the killing goes on and on.

18 Moldova Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south.
19 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

China more safest city than Bangladesh

China more peaceful than Pakistan

China more peaceful than India

China more best than Bangladesh

20 Slovenia Slovenia, officially the Republic of Slovenia, is a nation state in southern Central Europe, located at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes.

Slovenia and Croatia are the richest former Yugoslav republics. - Eraklious

21 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately more.

Poland will be a bulwark of Catholicism in Europe. While many western countries will be dechristianized, secularized & eventually islamized, Poland will be one of the last hopes of European civilization. I trust Poles will defend Catholicism outside their borders, saving Europe from the barbarians like they did in 1621.

Thanks to God young Poles are unlike those of western Europe very religious, go to church & give faith a large role on their lives. Church attendance in Poland is the highest of Europe (around 60%), and is comparable to the super-religious Christian countries of the third world in this term. If one wants to see the strongest Catholicism, go to Poland.

Not only in faith performs so good. Poland has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe (and in world as well), very little unemployment (approx. 3%), no terrorism threat, is one of the most peaceful countries (especialy in rural areas) and, let's not forget, beautiful beaches! (go to Hel and you will want to ...more

22 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Ireland itself is very safe, but the borders with England are EXTREMELY volatile! The violence only extends one or 2 miles from the border though.

It should be in the top ten... Not here. Its 2nd safest country in world and 1ST in eruope if WW3 breaks out - rocky212

Ireland should be in the top 10... Not here it's the 2nd safest country in the world and 1st in EROUPE if ww3 breaks out

There is SO LOW crime rates here, you won't believe the newspapers.
Everyone is so friendly here and this is coming from an Indian.

23 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!

Boo I don't France dirty country expecting it to be very rich and clean but all that in reality its annoying with people acting others as slaves And it also invaded Africa just for wealth without france Africa and my country whould be much much better and richer I'd rather go to Germany

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.

24 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. 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.

No more terrorists staying in this at all..

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.

25 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. more.

Italy more peaceful than Bangladesh

Croatia is one of the richest Balkan countries,same living standard as Hungary Czechia Poland Slovenia I think.
Croatian beaches and islands are awesome. - Eraklious

30 Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

It's to dangerous right now, I have heard that I.S has bomb one mosque in Bangladesh and they country are corrupt. - BeaM456

Less safest country in the world

Natural beauty is the main key...
Our culture can provide good thinking about our country...

I think crimes is virually non-existent in North Korea.
