The Top Ten
1 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard. ...read more.

I can tell you that this is probably the most safe country in the world. Everyone here is homogenous, and Norway has an extremely low poverty rate. When no one wants to kill each other because of race or religion and when everyone has enough money, crime is extremely low. Hence, Norway is one of, if not the safest country on Earth.

As a proud Swede, I must say that Norway is much more safe than Sweden.

Norway is truly the safest country in the world. No contest.

Norway is safer than any country in the world

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, ...read more.

Canada is a beautiful and safe country. The crime rate is very low, the climate is mild, (at least in southern areas), and the healthcare, education, and economy is strong! I would argue to say it's one of the best places in the world to live!

This country is absolutely amazing! The crime rate here is so low! The only bad thing about this place is how liberal it is.

Still safe and just so big that you can find a place to live and not see any humans, so no crime!

@Matthewn1999 - Lol, what he means by that is we're good in hockey. It's not nukes or anything, it's just like a figure of speech.

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

I live here. If you were in Iceland like me, you'd watch all this chaos like a show instead of be a victim of it.

This should be number one because it's actually a fact that it is well known for being the safest.

No crime here the most dangerous thing is here are animals

It's factually the safest.

4 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.

In Denmark, there are almost no deadly animals, no deadly natural disasters, no school shootings and we live to 81.

5 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. ...read more.

The most neutral sided country in the world, I don't know if its ever even been in a war, or has been on a side. that's awesome really

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

New Zealand is overrated. Japan, Canada, Norway, and Australia are way safer than New Zealand.

New Zealand is much safer than any of the other countries on this list.

I'm coming here when WW3 starts or Iceland

The climate is just right

7 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 ...read more.

I think Japan is the most safest because when you're little, you can walk all alone to the shops because no one will kidnap you cause it’s so safe! Also, the economy is great! You should also live here!

The Contenders

Singapore is by far the safest country in the world!

Singapore should be 1st! So safe!

It has no natural disasters

Too underrated. At least if you get raped the whole government is against that individual. In the US or UK they'll just go "Good on yer son"

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 ...read more.

I don't understand why this is so low. Apart from violent crime and the shootings (which are bad, ik) the US is relatively a safe place. Most citizens live in urban areas, but once you go into small towns or rural areas, the country becomes one of the safest places on Earth.

This should be like 1 or 2 I live in this country and I feel safe living in the 3rd largest nation on the planet. In fact, the U.S right now as of May 2018 has 325 million people. The 3rd largest population.

Apart from Forest Fire It is Safe

awesome

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

As an Irish person, I would say the country is very safe. However, crimes such as mugging and violence in the inner city are problems. Regardless it is a very safe place - even Northern Ireland is a lot safer than it was 40 years ago.

With the one civil war between the two religions or whatever that was, I can't remember is over, right? that was a big problem

Safe but with war and Communism.

18 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

It's not safe for lowIQ people, poor people, chinese people, small people, national people, ignorant people, unskilled people, abnormal people, weird people, animal lover people, ugly people, foolish people, no money people, lonely people, weak people, lazy people, transgender people, plastic people, etc.

Unless you are not welcome here

Should be at top 15, beautiful people at heart, very nice hospitality.
