Imagine you could choose the most peaceful country in the world to live in. What a luxury! The first prize goes to Iceland, followed by Denmark and New Zealand. The Global Peace Index has issued a report which lists all 162 countries in the world according to how peaceful they are. They used a wide range of respected sources such as The World Bank and some of the UN agencies before they drew up their list. Peace, according to their definition based on 22 indicators, is the absence of war, violence, low military spending, levels of policing, organized crime, and the application of democratic government. As I see, the high level of literacy and tolerance among the population promotes low crime and violence rate. Iceland has significantly low military expenditures and no standing army. The amazing natural attractions like volcanoes, glaciers and magnificent landscapes are the lure for tourists from all over the world.
