MAIN STORY

Iceland is the Safest Place in the World, Again!

Iceland has topped a list of safest countries in the world. The list, curated by ‘Global Finance Magazine,’ considered war and peace, crime rates and natural disasters to work out a Safety Score Index to rate countries. The list included 123 of the 193 countries recognised by the UN. European countries dominated the top 20 safest nations on the list. The data used to assess each country came from the World Economic Forum and the Global Peace Index. Despite the high earthquake rate (up to 500 per week) and many active volcanoes, Iceland landed in the number one spot. The main reason for this was Iceland’s incredibly low crime rate. Iceland has no military, and violent crime is so uncommon here that police officers do not need to carry firearms. For a population under 400,000 there is quite a high number of guns in the country (almost 90,000 firearms), but practically zero gun violence. The last gun-related death was in 2007.
