The Global Peace Index 2016 was recently published by the Institute for Economics and Peace, revealing the safest and most dangerous countries in the world.

Every nation was issued a peace score out of 5 (the lower the score, the higher the level of peace), determined by analysis of 23 factors under three categories: the level of safety and security in society, domestic and international conflict, and militarisation.

Iceland claims the coveted title of the world’s safest country, Denmark, takes second place, while Austria is the third-safest place in the world.

Here are the first 11 safest countries on Earth:

 

11. Finland – 1.429

10. Slovenia – 1.408

9. Japan – 1.395

8. Canada – 1.388
