Iceland, Ireland are the safest country in the world, with 0.0% rate of murder.
I live in Madeira, which is a semi-autonomous Portuguese island with a population of about 350,000. There has been the occasional murder (the last, I believe, was several years ago), but there is virtually no crime - no burglaries, no muggings, no car thefts, none of the ordinary day-to-day threats so often experienced in other parts of the world. The people are friendly, well-mannered and orderly but with a great jest for life. It's a good place to live.
Turning to johnakc's answer, I don't know about Iceland but Ireland's murder rate is definitely not 0.0 per cent, either historically or currently. But it is also a great place to live - the murder rate is not the only way to measure a country's safety.
People are frequently scared of many of the bad things that can happen to them. They wonder where the safest place on earth is. My guess is Antarctica. There are few people, few animals, and few diseases. read more
