Most peaceful country
New Zealand : All peace and harmony..
New Zealand has been named the most peaceful country on earth in the annual Global Peace Index. The index is based on the ranking of 144 nations on the basis of how peaceful they are. The Kiwi nation’s relatively low rate of violence, decrease in military spending, and the election of a conservative coalition government last year are being credited for winning it the top position in the index. New Zealand also topped the list because of its low homicide rate and the level of respect for human rights. It has replaced Iceland. Denmark, Norway and Iceland came second, third and fourth, respectively, followed by Austria and Sweden.
