1 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.

I want to go to Norway. I want to migrate there and live there forever. I'm a wanted criminal in my country, so, it is best for me to go there because there's no one will find me there because it is the safest place. I might kill a few people there and no one will know that it was me who kill them. Yes! It's my lucky day.

Oh yah, it’s not like Norway is part of NATO or anything...

We have good choclate

It is safe clean and it’s also the Viking country besides there is no wars or anything you imagine bad can’t happen there and I really like the flag and like the comment below the chocolat is good si that is why it is a good country

True it safe sometimes, but I also seen times it wasn't from a tornado or bad weather or bad crimes - trains45

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

Canada has a lot of things.IT is a beautiful country an d iam from this country, I want to live in toronto most famous city in Canada.

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!

If America had a very small population like Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Canada etc... it'd be just as safe.
Congratulations Iceland for being one of the safest countries in the world when your nation's population only hosts roughly 350,000 people. give me a break. It's not impressive. Same argument can be made for the other countries who are deemed safe for hosting small, insignificant populations like Canada.
