    I think your answer will be a country of Europe or America.

      There happens to be NOT ONE peaceful or safe Country anywhere in the World, simply because none of them are actually civilized.

      USA has the highest per capita gun rate.  so some would say safer I-would say not. It may be safer than Somalia
      ...fewer pirates

    Well until a few days ago, I would have said Norway, because the people are so laid-back and liberal.  I would also say New Zealand, which has very low crime rates.

    I would say Singapore where I am living now. It's safe enough that I can go home in the early morning without any fear. Very low crime rate too.

    I disagree with ya all! smile I think it's Switzerland or Netherland or something. Neither do they have army, nor any enimies, OR at war!!! Or Greenland! Accept for Polar bears there is no danger and there are always watchman.

      Gillme - you may be right with Switzerland but I think the Dutch army may have something to say to you! smile The Dutch Marines (known affectionately as Cloggies) are also one of the very top Special Forces units in NATO...

    Argh, tough question.

    In Asia though, the country with the lowest crime rate and highest level of safety is JAPAN.

    AEvansposted 5 years ago

    I wouldn't say the U.S. and I live here. But I would say Italy or Switzerland. Those countries don't put up with anything and I have to agree with kerylnb nor does Japan. Zero tolerance as for the U.S. all through our Country crime rates are through the roof in many of our major metropolitan cities.

    Hahahaha.. there is Luxembourg.. I know i know not many people know about it.. but hey, when was the last time Luxembourg was in the news for a major disaster?? Mayber perhaps for just a few financial scams.. but that's about it!

    stephaniedasposted 5 years ago

    There are already some good answers posted here, I would agree about Luxembourg, New Zealand, japan, and Norway. I haven't checked the stats, but my frist answer would be Finland. The only thing you have to worry about there is getting depressed during the dark winter.

  11. Sue Adams profile image92
    Sue Adamsposted 5 years ago

    The U.S. is vast and varied against Luxembourg.

    Europe is OK.

    I live in Spain in the campo. I leave my car door and house unlocked. No people, no crime. The most peaceful place I've ever lived in.

    I'd like to live in Belize which is peaceful, extremely safe and English is the spoken language. The country does not have a party culture. The nation's poor are concentrated in many small groups and the result is minimal problems caused by poverty. Few vehicles keeps a large percentage of the population close to home.

      I think Sweden or Mauritius is most peaceful country.

    Based on my experience, I'd say New Zealand.

    New Zealand + Australia . good to be in a country surrounded by ocean not other countries so you dont feel trapped in as well.

    I would put China pretty far up the list.
    Other than petty crime like pickpocketing there is very little crime in China.
    I traveled in some pretty high poverty places and never had, or met anyone else who had, any problems.
    In Cities like Chengdu you can wander around at night and flag a taxi at 3am without thinking about it.

    Safer than a lot of America these days.

    As to why it is because Chinese laws are very strict and punishment very harsh for criminals, especially if they prey on foreigners.
    In China they have a saying, everything has eyes. It isn't like the old USSR where everyone is afraid it just means that anything done is seen by someone.

    Society wise the Chinese are very relaxed and very friendly.

    what about Bavaria though?? anyone have any experiences there?

    I can't see any credible organization which collects data for all crimes, murder rates, homicide rates, drugs etc. So it is difficult to rank countries.

    For socio economic indicators, well being, quality of life, the United Nation (UN) devised an indicator, HUMAN DEVELOPMENT INDEX. The indicators are literacy rate, expectancy to live up to old age, economic well being etc..

    The top 10 in 2011

    United States
    New Zealand

    Look here for the complete ranking


    Download the summary see p. 17

    From that top 10 list, unfortunately I read some of the most horrific & gory crimes occuring. A country that is safest is the one with the lowest population. Less murders/crimes per capita.

    Tread carefully where ever you are lead. It's not fair to assume ONE place is more safe than another though I understand there is more danger during these waring days in the Middle East. But I have seen crime happen in the "safest" of places.

    Should you travel heed caution and don't look like a tourist. I think that helps you mesh in with society.
    Also, keep cash at a min and always be courteous to the citizens.

    Hopefully I want to go to Peru soon so I'll let you know how safe I was. LOL

    New Zealand has the lowest corruption rate and one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world. I'd pick that.

    Most peaceful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNdPPEwg … re=related Watch that youtube video and tell me you did not laugh.

    Safest: yes. I was in Tokyo Disney Sea when that big earthquake hit. Stuck in Aladdin's palace for about 30 hours or so. I felt more safe than my parents who were calling me from Hawaii.

    I would say definitely Switzerland. Having lived out there for a short amount of time, I can see how it is unbelievably safe.

    Not to mention that at any time, any day, the Swiss can summon and army of one million people to any point in Switzerland - now that is cool! Although they tend to remain neutral so I'm not sure that is going to happen any time soon!
