According to statistics, Cyprus is the safest country to live in followed by Denmark, Norway, New Zealand, Iceland, Luxembourg, and Ireland along with a few other countries. I’ve lived in the United States and Europe and still travel between the two and feel safe on both continents because I stay out of areas where I know crime is prevalent. Where I live in Columbus, OH, I would not hesitate to walk home by myself at 3:00 AM and have occasionally forgotten to lock my doors at night.
The question is too difficult to answer since criminal laws vary from country to country. For example, if someone is intoxicated in Japan and commits murder the perpetrator isn’t held responsible but in the west that’s an automatic prison sentence. In the United States, most states still have laws against possessing marijuana but it’s legal in the Netherlands. In Singapore, people are caned for petty theft and vandalism.
