Top 10 Safest Countries in the World to Settle in 2014


As natural disasters, terrorism, robberies and massacres made our planet a hell, everyone are in the urge to settle down in one of the safest places. But unfortunately when it comes to preparing a list of top 10 safest countries in the world, it becomes extremely hard to find such countries that satisfy all the criteria an individual has in mind.

So now, how would you picture a safest country? Is that the one which must have

  • Low crime rate?
  • No natural disaster?
  • Low corruption?
  • Immunity to economical crisis?
  • Or is it fast solving cases?

All the above factors are something you would certainly expect from a safe place you wish to settle. But the reality is, not all these factors make it. Out of the entire mentioned factors, crime seems to be making any place unsafe to live. Crime is one of the major reasons for a person to develop anxiety, post-traumatic stress, physical pain, loss of property and so on. After researching a while and keeping all the factors in mind, we the team of lifestyle9 have framed the list of “top 10 safest countries in the world”. We have considered “crime rate” as our prime factor.

Although governments around the world continue to strict their laws towards crime, it is still increasing massively on a daily basis. Often we see it with our own eyes or at least hear it on television news and websites. While high prevalent crimes make some places completely unsafe to live, strict laws, culture and few good qualities continue to make few countries as a perfect place to live, raise kids and happily retire. These countries have zero or at least low crime rate. Yeah, we have exceptions in everything. That’s the universal law.
